Hi, Joyce and thanks for adding me as a friend. I write lovely poems and if you like this one below maybe you will consider adding my two books on your shelf. If not you can comment about this poem at http://alejabennett.com
I Love you
I love you to the moon
I love you to the end of the planets.
I love you till there's no love in the equator,
I love you knowing nothing could be greater,
I will love you from now until decades later.
Let me love you now, not later.
Let me love you to
Without worries, fears or cares.
Allow me to love you,
Until you care, blossom up,
Open up-heal from old wounds
that you suddenly, slowly start to share.
Our love is genuine-it can't compare.
Now your love has opened up wide
Like a brand new gift on Christmas day
See what happens when you allow
Someone to love you.

Hi, Joyce, I found you on shelfari.com and am bewildered by blogs like these... would prefer an e-mail, to firstname.lastname@example.org, since I know how to open and read e-mails. I am wondering whether you had to market Loyalty's Web to Leatherwood in order to get them to pick it up, or whether they just had their eyes open for a good new self-published. I'm working on my first and possibly only book (I'm in my 70's), am paying for top-level editing, and wouldn't mind self-publishing as a prelude to traditional publishing, if I knew how to make that happen. I'll appreciate any advice.
I am looking forward to reading your book- "loyalty's web".
I noticed that you really like Skippyjon Jones- He is a favorite at my home!! I also really enjoy Kerry Blair's books too.
Good luck in your writing! I am always so impressed with the way authors can use words and the stories come alive!
I just finished rereading "When Love is Blind" and "Child of Music" by Mary Burchell. Those are two I really enjoy, though all the books in the Warrender Saga are good. Here are the write-ups on the two I listed above.
WHEN LOVE IS BLIND- He had dashed all her professional hopes, and now fate had cruelly turned the tables, making Antoinette the unwitting cause of destroying his! But then, by a strange twist of events, she found herself in the employ of this onece-brilliant concert pianist. Although her efforts to help the embittered man often seemed hopeless, they were not to go unrewarded. Especially with the intervention of the famous operatic couple- Oscar and Anthea Warrender!
CHILD OF MUSIC- They disliked each other from the start! From the moment she had had the misfortune to be seated next to Stephen Tarkman at a dinner party, Felicity had found him arrogant and abrasive. His obvious enjoyment in wielding power over others weaker than he was especially infuriating. Thank heaven the dynamic Oscar Warrender was on her side. For doing battle with Stephen over the talents of a gifted child was more than she could handle alone!
Joyce-- I read your comment on Heather H's page, which I followed from the Georgette Heyer group that we belong to. You should check out our group discussions right now where we are discussing books to read after Georgette Heyer. We've listed some clean romances we've enjoyed. I also noticed that you belong to the LDS Authors and Readers group. Are you LDS? I am. I was glad to see other women looking for clean romance to read. I'll have to check out your book.
Hi ! I just wanted to stop by and invite you to come and check out my new group called The Jane Austen Book Club! It's a great group of great Shelfarians who love to engage in all things Austen! I hope you will come and join us! Thanks!
Yes, those are both music ones. Her music books start with "A Song Begins", introducing a conductor named Oscar Warrender who plays minor roles in the other books.
Elusive Harmony : Lindley Harding was a singer nearing the end of his career; Laurence Morven was a new star-and rival-coming up over the horizon. And Lindley's daughter Natalie, who loved them both, found herself torn two ways as the bitterness grew between the two men. Was the situation going to ruin her life?
Masquerade with Music: She couldn't reveal her true identity. Nor could Kate reveal it had been her ambition to become an opera star that prompted her to take a job in London with her famous uncle, Oscar Warrender. Two men were prepared to help her: Carlo, a handsome baritone who saw Kate as a way of furthering his own career; and Van, a musical journalist who seemed to want the best for her-but on his own terms. She needed them both...but her heart could choose only one.
There you go. Those are the write-ups on the back cover of each book. I've got them all, I think, so let me know if you need info on any others.
Also, since you teach piano, and you're interested in the Mary Burchells, there is one called "When Love is Blind" about a concert pianist who loses his sight in a car accident. Mary Burchell is british, so they all take place in England. That's a bonus for me, since I'm kind of an angophile (mostly because of Georgett Heyer:)) Anyway, one of my girlfriends from college who was also a music major got hooked on them, too.
It's always great to meet another Heyer fan! I own most of her books, and I go on jags where I read them all in the space of a couple months. Great stories, and written before sex scenes became required for a romance. She really reminds me a lot of Jane Austen, though Austen was writing of her own time, whereas Heyer was writing of parents of grandparents time. I also love her sense of humor. Faro's Daughter, The Reluctant Widow, and the Unknown Ajax are some of the funniest ones, IMHO. Funny, with a bit of suspense thrown in. Always a delicious read. I'm glad to hear someone from the LDS readers group enjoys my tastes. The Regency group seems to enjoy the racier regencies they have now.
My mom introduced my to Heyer when I was in junior high. My sisters and I all read them, but Candace doesn't enjoy them like I do.
I'm very excited to pick it up. Please do check out the LDS Authors and Readers group I've created. I'd like for it to be a group where we can have free discussion between authors and readers, improve the market, take over the world . . . huh, oh yeah. That last part was a slip. Heh, heh, heh.
