Fans I Never Expected

Several of the "older ladies" in my life have told me recently how much they loved Line of Scrimmage. I have to admit that after they said, "I read your book," I braced myself for the comments about how sexy it was. But the first part was followed each time with "...and I loved it!" WHEW! My dad's cousin, age 75, told me today she plans to read it again. I ran into my aunt, age 77, coming out of church tonight and after she told me how much she loved it she said she bought some extra copies for her friends. "I told them it was sexy," she said, "and now they can't wait to read it." Another friend of ours, age 81, has read all of my books and clamors for more. To be honest, I wasn't expecting the over 70 crowd to embrace LOS and my romance writing career the way they have. However, I couldn't be more delighted to count them among my enthusiastic readers.

My favorite question from Aunt Betty tonight? When will the next one be out? I'm still waiting to hear the exact date that Same Time Sunday will launch, but I think it's May 1. I'll keep you—and Aunt Betty—posted!

How FUN, Marie!
Hey, just coz there's snow on the roof doesn't mean there's no fire in the furnace! LOL!

I just signed a copy of The Wild Sight that my friend intends to give her 81 year old mother for a Christmas gift. I asked, "Will she be shocked by the sex?" My friend said, "It'll be her FAVORITE part!"

I also sent a copy to my former Mother In Law, who is 85. Still waiting to hear what she thinks, but I know she'll tell me. ;-)

Can't wait for your release date for Same Time Sunday.

Funny about the snow on the roof, Cindy. Who'd a thunk it? The ladies love it hot and spicy! Thank goodness! I'm sure your former MIL will love the book and be very proud of you! Thanks for dropping by the blog!
