Lady Heather Thanks for accepting my friend invite! I have just started reading your writing and I'm now a fan! I really enjoyed reading 'Wrecked', and I love your 'Fatal' series!
What I like most about the 'Fatal' series is that you've used the same lead characters throughout the series. It is one of the reasons why I read in PNR the Kate Daniels, Night Huntress, and Guild Hunter series.
Often when reading a series I find I just start to connect to the characters and their relationship, them "BAM" the stories over with a 'semi' HEA, and I'm wondering what the characters lives will be like later on and how their doing... Then in the next books in "the series" the characters are mentioned but there is nothing really personal.
Thank you for writing the 'Fatal' series! I can't wait to read the Novella and the next Novel in the new year!
Lady Heather :))

vale pao Marie please tell me we're getting Grant's story next. I want more McCarthy brothers!!! As always I'm loving all your books! I finally got to read the rest!

Regards from your number one fan from Uruguay

message 9: by Ed

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Marie. You seem like an interesting person, as well as quite the prolific author, so feel free to tell me more about yourself. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed


Jackie When will "Line of Scrimmage" be available for my kindle??

message 7: by Kassi

Kassi I'm kinda sad that I've voted for the last thing for Sam & Nick. *sigh*

moodyreader Aw, I so want to read line of scrimmage but I cannot see it on Kindle Store. I'm desperate (especially when I saw the quotations above)! But anyways, I'm gonna read "The Fall" today! Have a good day and thank you for accepting me here as a friend! :)
