Brilliant blog, Susie, thank you! And now I'm crying. So glad you found someone good to help you get the books out again. It's an enormous task but we readers thank you!

I think there is a nice niche of readers and authors who sort of "grew up" together. We have the same interests and tastes and it's like hanging out at the neighborhood pub with our friends. So thank you for being with us!

we were hoping we could persuade Typepad to allow readers to add flowers, too, but alas, they're not set up for it. But zinnias are a lovely contribution, thank you. And the quote is perfect! May we all have roses in December.

I'm in CA, the land of fruit, nuts, and flowers . Your green chives are even edible. Hope you continue to enjoy us as we move into our twelfth year!

The struggle never goes away, so enjoy your freedom while you can! We've all been there, fighting for recognition among the hordes. So you're in good company here.

Hi, Theo! Given that Typepad would only let me in through the backdoor this evening, be glad you even got in. ;) My David Austin rose is blooming now. I should have taken pictures but Ken's image was too glorious. Our readers do become part of the family-- a blog where everyone knows your name!

I really want to be able to teleport myself though. I hate airports!

Yeah, I can't do audio either. But I love that we can adjust the print size on ebooks!

Awww, thank you, Annette! But that's something we probably ought to consider--that we all have talents that seem magical to others. I'd love to have the ability to comprehend and speak other languages as well. I'm in awe of people who can master several. I learned to read and write Spanish, but hearing and speaking were beyond my ability. Think about it and see if you don't have a little magic of your own!

nose too short! Love that. Eagle vision, or superman's x-ray vision? That would be kinda cool too. I wish I could do any close work without glasses, but it's not happening in this lifetime. My nose starts to ache from the glasses after a while. I need a super strong nose!

LOL! What about a place in time? But can you imagine--transporting yourself to London or Fiji or... Yeah, I think I like this one!

oh dear, it's so sad to have to give up music! Guess I should have had you read over PERFECT'S ms to see if I did it right, but the deaf child has only a small part to play. But sight...that's a huge one for me. I can't listen to audio. Can you?

As long as you can make yourself visible again. The Invisible Man has kind of cured me of the desire for that one!

Oh a magical ability to understand anyone! Fabulous idea. It would also help with people faced with the law and no idea what's happening to them or their loved ones. We'd need a whole lot of people with that ability!

One of the fun parts of writing romance is finding the perfect match for our characters. So what did I do to torment poor hands-on, country-loving, dog-whisperer Will? I gave him an untouchable duke’s daughter. Continue reading

Idle chatter is about the only thing I can do with strangers. But a smile and a compliment can go a long way. We should all practice that.

Smiling! this is the reason I started writing historicals, but I get a bit discouraged reading history-less books these days.

nothing you could have said would have made my day better, thank you! It's a constant struggle to paint those pictures without overwhelming the reader!

Sensual details are often included to enhance a scene for reader delectation, but every scene? That sort of dilutes the purpose!

As a gardener, I, too, notice flower detail. But I don't know English weather/gardens as well as American, and even there, different areas have different plants. It's a minefield for non-gardening authors! Thank you on the covers! My downfall is preferring distinctive and original when readers often want the same. I don't write pastel heroines. ;)

Beaming. As I said, it's not always easy. There's a fine line between too much and amusing. Heroes who smell of sulfur or heroines who live in musty manors better have a lot of other good qualities. ;)

LOL on the bloomers as decor! But this is it exactly--the reader needs to be right there with the character. It's not easy, I'm here to attest.
