The culmination of what felt like a lifetime of planning and preparation.

The papers had finally come. It was about to begin. He even got to choose the agent who would join him on the mission. Her name was Michelle. She was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen. Tonight she would be in his arms and they would make love. Wild, carefree, ravenous, joyous, love…

  3. Not that you can do anything about it but the blog you gave a link to is another one that won’t accept my email as a valid one … to follow… I don’t have problems on any other blog site or this one or the ones you have for your children’s books but for some reason the poetry one and this new one won’t accept me… Soooo I let wordpress know and asked them if there was a way they could find out why…. ?? I’ll have to wait till they get back to me… ‘btw’ story starts out with great suspense…. Diane

  4. Nice. Good for you Russ!
