It’s Writer’s Crack, People

No other word for it. When someone sends you a message and says they’re loving your book… and they’re not even related to you… it’s gotta be the best feeling in the world.

This is our addiction–creating and telling stories. And there’s nothing like the rush of having a reader say you you made their day at the beach, or their night in with a book, fun.

Hayden Braeburn posted a really cool mention of Loose Cannon on her blog, here:

Harder still–how to tell Alex Dante that Ryan’s his son?

Between Petrov’s demands, the agency’s evasiveness, and Alex’s whirlwind reentry into her life, Raeanne can trust no one but herself, and only after she gets Ryan back will she worry about fixing past mistakes. If she lives long enough to fix anything…
