  1. Joan, congratulations on going into a second printing! I think you're doing a wonderful service.

    My first novel in print is a humorous mystery featuring a sexy grandma and her hunky ex-lover. It's getting great reviews. I think that older people are so ready to read about issues that concern them.

  2. June, a mystery featuring "a sexy grandma and her hunky ex-lover" sounds like my kind of book! Please tell us the title!

(my main character. You can check out my website and my hunky squeeze at Thanks for asking, Joan:)
