Thanks to everyone who left comments. Romance novels touch us in ways both universal and personal and it's always a neat revelation to me.
Several people commented on my ivory tower graphic. It was created by my very talented daughter, Kristin. She's a senior in college studying art. I asked her to create a graphic for me to use on my website and I think she did a super job. You can view more of her work online at http://mystictriana.deviantart.com . If you leave a comment, just tell her that Mom sent you. :) She'll be making her living as an artist, when she graduates in May, so if you'd like a cool graphic for your website just let me know and we'll find a way to pass your contact information to her in a private way.
It's been snowing all day here in beautiful Colorado and looks to keep it up over night. I know it will be spring soon, I just know it!
