The Innocent - Out Now!
Hey Everyone. So, I have a book update but first I need to start with a bit of back story.
For everyone who doesn’t know, I started writing The Order of the Rose a long time ago. As in, 20 years ago when I was 15 in 2000. Hush, I know - I’m trying to give Isobelle Carmody a run for her money.
Anyway, being the time period and my age, (15 and with very little internet access for research purposes), I was unaware that a term I use in The Order of the Rose is, in fact, a rather derogative term used to describe the Irish Traveller community. This was brought to my attention by the editor of my second book so by that time, The Order of the Rose had been out for almost 6 years with this term being used a whole bunch of times making me look like an absolutely horrendous person.
In order to rectify this, I have gone through and updated the internal text for The Order of the Rose so it is in line with my own personal morals and I can stop perpetuating the use of this term. For anyone who found it offensive, I am deeply sorry and I hope you can forgive my ignorant use of it in my book.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far, and again, I am sorry for any offense caused.
