  1. Love love love, I love this story!!! I’ve realised I might have spent a bit too much time with teenagers here when I had this crazy thought “hope she did not come back pregnant”:P Nah,love won and whatever happened with the lady bug, past is past. Thanks for making me starting the week end with high spirits, regards to the beautiful couple ๐Ÿ˜‰ XXX

    • My dearest!!! I’m thrilled that you enjoyed the story and I got a chuckle at your thoughts that the cute spider had come back with special news!
      Indeed, love won over all… And I’m so glad to help you start off your weekend :))
      I’ll give your best to the happy couple when I see them later on in their special place in my apartment;)
      Lots of love to you in the lovely Phillipines!!!

  2. The ending is just perfect Lia! I was really hoping the cute spider would return…..and boy did she….with a grand romantic gesture! I have really enjoyed this story and love your wit! My favorite line: “She had spun me deep into her heart and there was no point of return.” I can’t wait for your next story ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a happy weekend!

    • Sue! Indeed the cute spider came back ๐Ÿ™‚ She’s head over heels with the Stinkbug!
      Ah ha! Please stay tuned for more news on when the Stinkbug will be sitting on store shelves or on e-book! Thank you for your encouragement and support! I so appreciate you!

      • Oh Lia I am so excited for you and for readers!! So let me know as things progress. I am thrilled to have met you on the blog and of course in person. When you are a famous children’s author I will say “I knew here when….”

  3. Lovely Lia! This story just warmed my heart! You really had me going if cute spider was returning! So glad a spider-hating human didn’t squish (gasp) her! I loved the part about the shower head diving and could just picture a bunch of bugs jumping off into my tub, LOL! You really should consider publishing this whole story into an ebook or book complete with illustrations (you must know some great artists in Manhattan). Charming and enjoyable finale to the Stinkbug Saga! Bravo!

    • Terri!!! I’m so glad you liked the finale…I remember when you and I had spoke about Part 2!
      Indeed, the cute spider is back, safe and sound to the bathroom ๐Ÿ™‚
      LOL I’m happy you liked the shower head diving imagery! Since the Stinkbug really lived in my own bathroom, the whole story was “created” in my bathroom with my bathroom window, shower, sink, door, in mind! I’m glad you could imagine the little guys hanging out, diving off into your tub!
      Yes, yes, this will be the first book I publish — ebook and/or complete with illustrations…
      Thank you, thank you for your support, enthusiasm and friendship for Stinkbug (and me)!

  4. I love many of your analogies like, ” my eyes grew as wide as a bedbug’s in a mattress factory.” I think that was my favorite. I would say you certainly could write a book. You have such a great, playful imagination. Have you even thought of children’s books?

  5. Great line: She was beaming as brightly as a jar full of fireflies on a summerโ€™s evening. Loved it! And having lived with a small NY bathroom, I could easily see yours. I thought the idea of shower diving was brilliant. And it’s so visually written that doing illustrations would be fun. Would you do them?

    I’m so glad you finished it. You could go two ways: a book for children but not really little children, maybe 7 or 8 yr. olds, (I’m wondering about the whole “love” thing and the suggestions of suggestiveness) or you could do it for adults with fanciful and intriguing drawings. Look at all the adults that already like the story! Maybe think of it like a graphic novel.

  6. I’m so glad he’s back! Stinkbug! Bless his loyal and loving little heart! Tiffy is excellent – although I don’t think I actually want to meet her. This is such a delightful tale! And beautifully written. When I saw the posting, I felt like you’d sent a gift. Thank you!! I’m glad you are going to publish it. You must keep us all “in the loop”. Perhaps aim to launch in time for Valentine’s Day. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Cherio from here….

    • Thank you Karen! I’m so glad you enjoyed the finale to the Stinkbug story:) And yes, love prevails! Ps: I love the word “woven” that you used here… It’s such a lovely way to describe a story. I really appreciate your feedback! Hope you’re enjoying your summer:))


    • Thank you, Britta! Indeed, a sad ending wouldn’t have been good….I believe that true love conquers all!
      Thanks so much for your support for my writing and hmmm, it’s funny you mention what will come next since I’ve got something new brewing!

        Also, you can bet I’ll be one of the first to pick up that book of yours! (I was browsing through the other comments and was very intrigued by a mention of a book ๐Ÿ™‚ )
