I’ve gotten a lot of reader email lately, and I treasure each and every one of them. Ninety-nine percent of them are positive. Some crack me up. Like this one which refers to a scene in SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE where my heroine sits on a running washing machine and, um, sort of has a sexual experience on it. By herself.
Just read the scene in Simply Irresistible where the heroine has an orgasm sitting on top of her running washing machine. All I can say is that I’m sincerely regretting buying a stacking washer and dryer… Signed, Disappointed In Cincinnatti.
This one warmed my heart:
I just wanted to say thank you for HEAD OVER HEELS. I finished it in one sitting and I’m still thinking about sexy sheriff Sawyer Thompson. I also wanted to say thank you for including a character with Cystic Fibrosis. Our 3 year old son has CF and my dearest hope is that he will be able to lead his life independently and to the fullest.
And then there’s the one that I’m not sure what to think about, and yes it came to me all in caps:
Jill — I’VE READ ALL YOUR BOOKS AND YOU WRITE TOO MUCH SEX AND USE TOO MANY BAD WORDS. THERE’S A REASON THESE BOOKS ARE CALLED TRASHY FICTION. AND ALSO, MAKING US WAIT UNTIL NOVEMBER FOR RUMOR HAS IT IS MEAN.
I’ve decided to look at it this way. One, she’s bought all my books. And two, the washing machine scene in Simply Irresistible is sure to goad her into writing me another letter to amuse us all.
