Searching For Janet Reid-

I'll be the first to admit that my love for all things book related is a little over the top. But even I have to take a step back at times and ponder my sanity when the agent of my "most favorite author" is leaving me a comment on my blog. Not that I'm not thankful. I am...I even called my good friend and told her to check it out and then I e-mailed her Janet's link! I can assure you, Janet, if you are reading this, that I have every intention of reading the work of the two writers you suggested just as soon as I finish my time with Reacher. My concern, however, is how you came to know about my newly created blog in the first place. My first guess would be the e-mail I sent to Andrew. Yes, I sent him my link-but only so he could get to know me just a little bit better before our meeting at a future bookstore. It was a harmless gesture, I assure you. I'm not aspiring to be an author. I only want to be a blogger-blogging makes me happy-and if you read anything other than the post you commented on you should know by now that I like to be happy! I'm not required to be perfect here. Which, according to some of your links, is a good thing. I would also like to note to any and all who read this, that I am not stalking "my most favorite" author, Andrew Grant. I'm strictly an admirer hoping to be upgraded to a friend because the word fan reminds me of Annie Wilkes from Stephen King's- MISERY! and who in their right mind wants to be associated with that? Not me. EVER! With that being said- if Andrew is in need of an assistant during his US apparences I am more than willing to assist. As you can imagine, I plan to blog about it! And now that I can prove to my husband that Andrew is indeed off the market-he is very supportive of my request for employment in this field...

Google alert! I know all and see all. (Any time Andrew's name is mentioned on a blog, google sends me an email telling me where to look. It's a great way to see fans!)

This is so cool that you include this e-banter in your blog. It provides a completely different, yet related, facet and makes me want to keep coming back! I hope that someday I have an agent who is this on top of things!

Janet Reid is pretty cool, isn't she? I can't believe she used the word "fan"-uggghhhh! I thought I made my thoughts clear on that subject. Friends only, please :)
