A wonderful site and I find the discription of you books intriguing. Nice to be following you on twitter. Hope we have a chance to get to know each other and share our work.
Hi Alan, and thanks for your kind words. Your ‘follow’ isn’t showing up yet, but I was very pleased to find you on Twitter and hope we’ll share additional exchanges. Looking forward to exploring your work.
Great blog Jack, we are now following and I’m looking forward to reading more of your posts! 🙂
Hello, Beth, and thanks for visiting. I’m following you limebirds now, and eager to learn more about the group.
Great thanks Jack! Looking forward to seeing you around more and snooping around your blog posts! 🙂
My computers at home have turned into paperweights (they’re very old) so Twitter doesn’t load on them properly. As I am able to read my email, I saw that you mentioned me via #FF with regards to my “10 Things to Know About Me” blog. Thank you so much for the mention! I do enjoy your tweets and blogs. You rock, my brother! B@Peace!
Hi Traci (again). I think your very brave “10 Things to Know About Me” blog post deserves all the recognition it can get. I was happy to #FF it and will look forward to your future posts. Thanks again for posting here. — Jack
I first saw your reviews on the G/L Fiction Book Reviews site. I thought you were VERY honest, to the point and, simply stated, “reliable”. So how can I get you to review my new book “One Last Lie”? It’s currently available on Kindle but softcover should be out this week. (I can always send you one of my copies.) I guess I should first ask, “Are you interested”? Thanks — Rob
Hi Jack, any chance you’re the same J.U. who lived on Long Island as a lad?
Hello Dr. Jeff Nelson. No, sorry. That wasn’t me. I did live in New Jersey and Pennsylvania for a few years, but never anywhere in New York State.
Not sure if you remember me (or if you’ll even see this), but you reviewed my book, “One Last Lie” a few years back. I’m not exactly sure how I found this blog of yours, but I couldn’t help but tell you how engrossing and captivating your words are. There’s a gift within your writing that should be shared with many more people. I’m glad I found this blog… and the gift you shared with me.
