Publish Date and Jianne Carlo

Well I am getting closer to getting a publish date. I should know within the next two weeks when. I will be so glad to finally get it, and so hoping that it will sell. Time will tell, whether people want to take a trip through time with me or not. I wonder whether I should dye my hair for the occasion. Ha!

My friend Jianne Carlo just published her book. In the first two weeks she sold over 640 books. I am amazed, I know she is a fantastic writer, but how did everyone else know? There is now way I could match those figures. I am just in shock, and once they read it, Manacled in Monaco will be a new hit. I just feel it in my bones. Jianne is a beautiful, educated, petite, classy and motivated woman. I think she would be a success at whatever she wrote about, but this story is killer. There is so much sex, fantastic imagery, great dialogue, a riveting story in a romantic tropical setting; yes I'm saying it, this story rocks. Jianne reminds me what it was like when I was younger. How my heart beat when he drove up in front of my house. Those feelings all came back to me, and I remember the lust very well. Hmmm where is he?

Congratulations, to my friend and critique partner. I am so lucky to know you. You are a class act, and a great writer. I wish you the best.


  1. I will be blushing all week, Mary. Thanks so much for the postive comments.

    I suspect however, that Mary's blog is her way of trying to counteract the fact I've promised to play a practical joke on her for outing me about the number of books sold. Won't work sweetie, when you least expect it....

    Gosh, to learn through your blog that you'll know your publish date in two weeks...tut-tut. But, how exciting, and I know your book will run off the shelves.

    Tripping Through Time is a wonderful story, evocative and haunting, and set in an exciting age as our young country evolves. I know everyone will enjoy it.
