Today John (AKA Terry in my books) grabbed me when I entered the dog park and dragged me over to the water-pump where an attractive young lady not quite old enough to be my daughter stood.

“This is (insert name) she wants to publish. You two should talk.”

“Oh? What do you write?” I ask.

Whereupon this very nice young lady whose name I can’t remember (though her dog is Stella) tells me she’d like t...

Colleen Hoover Sweetness! You know how I love a good stalker. Did you finish The Hunger Games? Did you get to see the movie? I see you marked 'Slammed' as tbr. Hope you like it! *fingers crossed*

message 2: by C.A.

C.A. Newsome I ate up the Hunger Games trilogy. Finished Mockingjay the same day you sent it to me. I expect I'll love Slammed. How can I not? You wrote it. But I gotta get some work done first. I don't write as fast as you do.
