Jane Millionaire does Australia!
This morning prior to going to work I checked my emails (imagine that!) & I had the sweetest email from a bookseller in Australia. She'd read Jane Millionaire and loved it. Okay, call me sappy but I watered up. Big time. It just seems so unreal to me that something I wrote is actually a real book and that said book is being read by people on the other side of the world.
I've almost finished my Christmas shopping (yes, I said "Christmas" & no I won't be politically correct and just say Happy Holidays. I'm not overtly political, but this one really gets my goat! Celebrating Christ's birthday by taking his name out of the day? I respect others' religion and believe they have every right to believe as they choose and to celebrate as they choose---but so do I & anyone not believing in Christ should show me that same respect for my religious beliefs, IMHO), but back to shopping...ah, shopping. Can I just say that the stores are madhouses and I've never seen so many women ready to commit murder over the last video game. The poor sales clerks. Ack! Each year I seem to be doing more and more of my shopping online. If possible, I think I'd do all my shopping there. :)
And then there's the people on your lists who have it all, people you love and want to give a gift to show how much they mean to you, yet you can't quite find the gift that says that. At least, not one within your budget. Usually it's men that I have this problem with...but not always.
Oh! I'm the featured newbie author at http://www.roadtoromance.ca/ :) One of the fun thing about finally selling a book is coming across all these neat romance sites. Despite being an avid romance reader all my life, I didn't know a fraction of them were out there.
And, just in case you were wondering, the hottie above is Benjamin Bratt. I know, I know, I'm a Matthew kind of girl, but in Jane Millionaire my heroine, Jill, thinks the hero, Rob, looks like Benjamin Bratt. Yeah, I can see what Rob's appeal might be. ;)
