  1. The next time someone asks me 'do you put yourself in your novels', I'll quote this at them.

    BTW, Jon, there's a surprise for you on my blog.

    My greatest fear. This novel's going to be all about ME and not all about…what it's about. That make any sense?

    Roz–Awesome! And thanks so much for the award!

    Tricia–You're welcome.

    Brittany–Perhaps. But I say I'd rather know the truth earlier than later. This from the guy who hasn't started his novel either. 😀

    Brian–totally concur.

    Postie–Yeah. I totally have that fear too.

    Donna–It's a bit like magic, isn't it.

    Thanks all for commenting and for stopping by.
