...Things that make you go ..phew!...

Thank you to those readers of Persuading Jo who have emailed me. You have no idea how your positive comments made my day! I have had a few people ask me in person why on earth I would want to write "smut". Hurumph, it's not smut!, was my reply btw, along with 'people like me, who like to read it I would think!'. But you know I enjoy the challenge being that I am so new to all this, I get to be inventive and have fun, and hey, if I can make some $ along the way, who am I to complain?

I really need to say thank you, thank you, thank you to Loose Id who gave me a chance and the great editing of Bob and Raven, and, of course April's lovely cover! Sheesh, I sound like I am the academy awards or something...'I would like to thank my mother and 5th cousin twice removed and the mail man...

I even coughed up the $$ and went and printed myself a copy in colour for me to put on my shelf/wall to drool over. Talk about a prime motivator to do more!

Well, I am off to our 'mid winter christmas curry' at the best Indian restaurant in South Auckland -- I hang out for this curry for all those years of living in Florida, so I should look rather more rotund in approx 3 hrs time...then its off for drinkies with the mates for the rest of the night. I might be coherant tomorrow morning...or I might not be...

update : Curry was goooooooddd! Drinkies were too, but I was a responsible sort since I was driving home :)

I am reading the book..er...ebook and wow! It's wonderful! I noticed the Title said The McCabes: Book 1 in it. Does this mean there will be other stories like this? I really love how the characters come across really well as well. *LOL* Not to mention I think it's cool Jo has a vouyeristic streak and doesn't get jealous. I hope you write more books! You're a good author. ^.^

Thank you Shadowfox13! I have plans in the works for the rest of Brians family - his older brother Brian, his younger sister Anne and Sean and Michael the twin brothers. Brian and Kates story is almost done. Kate is a battered woman that Brian 'saves', and the story goes on from there. Anne has a love/hate thing going on with Brians best man, Tony, and I am planning on having lots of fun with twins to play with for the fourth book. Now cross fingers that Loose Id likes them!! :)
