No. I'll work those issues out with my girls (Rita? Honey, that was a warning, a head's up, that I'll need your skills BIG TIME on this next one!).
What I need from you, dear reader, is some input.
Maybe its because I'm older and its been a while. Maybe its because it's something I've blocked, but I can't remember what it is like to break up with someone you haven't had sex with yet (does that make me sound like a slut?). Especially someone that you valued as a friend, with so much in common, but you just couldn't quite take it to the next level.
Do you remember that break up? Or, more importantly, would you be willing to share those memories with me to make Bewitchments a better book?
I know its a lot to ask, but I'm begging.
You don't need to comment here on the blog. You can send me an email at jahornbuckle(at)hotmail.com and I won't use any names (this will remain with Zoe, the heroine, and the boyfriend she's going to dump). And, also because that kind of shi...er... stuff is private!
But, I will use whatever name you want me to in the dedication (credit written where credit is due, don't you know?). And, for the memory I'll use, I'm offering a ten dollar Amazon gift card as an incentive, if that helps.
I'll hold the offer open until 7/27/13, so you have a few days to think about it...to respond.
On another note, the virtual book tour is in seven days. Seven, count 'em, short days and I'm anxious. Anxious about offering Jax and Lacey out to a wider audience than what I'm used to having. Nervously excited about making more friends, answering questions that I haven't thought about, becoming more known.
Because, this is about you and me, right? Me writing those stories in my head and you reading them. As we both smile and laugh over the crap my characters get up to...watching them fall in love...hurting when they hurt...and then cheering when everything starts to come together for them. At least, that's what I envison our connection to be like.
I look forward, as ever, to hearing from you, whether it be with the story of your breakup or just because we need to 'touch base'. Truthfully? I just love hearing from you.
Smiling and waving as I watch the monsoon clouds building in the warmth of a Phoenix afternoon. Again, praying for rain,
