Bless me!! i need more!! well, wasn't I just tickled pink to see that you plan to continue the plot into a new series, Pit and Paradise!! WOOT!! Jezzie's story, the love she strives for, and the battle about to ensue w/ Michael, definitely needs to be told! do you have any plans about when the first P&P will be released?
