As a life long reader and fan of books, I still find it exciting that I have personal relationships with authors whose work I really admire, authors whose work has influenced me, uplifted me, or taught me in some way. The writing community is really interesting and giving.

The other thing I love about being a writer is hearing from readers and feeling like I've influenced, uplifted or entertained them in some way! I became a writer in the hope I could deliver that experience of being "carried away" by a story-- the magical experience other authors give me. So I am always thrilled to hear from readers and to feel like I'm succeeding in this way.(less)

“He’ll process the check.” Sage was still silent, blinking at TJ. “You’ll get the hang of it. I promise. And that platinum card I gave you? Gerry pays that bill too. But you have to take it into a store and buy something before he can pay it. Maybe a bed”

Sophia Hi Joanne!

Thank you for friending me. See you around GR!

Christine Hatfield Thanks for being my friend

Clare, that means so much to me. Thank you for reading, reviewing and taking the time to let me know! I grew up close to Saratoga, NY and worked at the track during the summers, so I got to meet some lovely horses at that time :-). It's come in handy for a few of my books, especially SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT. My next few books are set in a fictional town called Heartache, Tennessee for Harlequin Superromance and I'm thinking sooner or later there will be some more animals there ;-). Thank you so much, Clare!

Clare O'Beara I've really enjoyed My Secret Fantasies and just reviewed it; I'm a sucker for well-written horses and there were plenty of amusing contrasts. Thanks!


Joanne Rock Camp Kiss (Camp Boyfriend, #0.5) by J.K. Rock Don't miss the release party for Camp Kiss on Goodreads! http://www.goodreads.com/event/show/8...


Joanne Rock Camp Kiss Just eleven more days until Camp Kiss is available for free download!! Hope you'll check it out and let me know what you think!


Joanne Rock Hi Mel! So nice to hear from you! I appreciate you friending me at GR. I've been enjoying the book recommendations here, especially now that I don't have a bookstore in my town. My GR friends have pointed me in the direction of some great books!! Hope all is well with you, my friend!


Joanne Rock Hi there!! Thank you, thank you for being my friend all along :-). You've been good to me for as long as I've been writing and I appreciate that! I really like Goodreads too... especially for the book recommendations once you plug in your reviews of things you like. I've found some fun new stuff that way, especially since I no longer have a bookstore in my town (can you believe it??). Goodreads has taken the place of the local book retailer for me with the good tips for my TBR pile!


Cathiecaffey Joannes, the cover for FULL SURRENDER is so beautifully romantic!

I've been connected with your friendship since Goodreads opened and have loved your books. I so must add ALL the books I read of yours and others. And each time I read a book. I love it here at Goodreads and discovered so much new and too the group discussions with other readers. I love to see what others are reading! So thanks for your awesome books you write and all you recommend!
