The best reader feedback is that which castigates me for keeping them up until 2.00am because they couldn't put the book down. My work here is done!

As I indicated last week, I am asking my Friday guest posters to share a tidbit of research that they discovered in the course of writing their book - that may or may not have made it into the final product. It just seems a shame to waste it!
So here is my inaugural guest, my fellow "Escape Artist", Lisa Ireland.

The Promise (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 10, 2011 02:51AM
Description: This short story was written on a visit to New Orleans. Suffering a bad case of jet lag and not wishing to wake my room mate, I sat in the bathroom at 2.00 am and wrote it. It was inspired by a visit to Oak Alley Plantation on the Mississipi just outside New Orleans. It was first published in the Emerald Anthology of short stories put out by Romance Writers of Australia in 2007.
