  1. Ugh, that sucks about the scam agent, but good on you for putting your head down and getting back to work. I know a blow like that would disable some people for a long time, if not forever

  2. That makes me so sad that faux agents prey on people, but I'm truly inspired by the fact that you continued to write despite everything. Congratulations and kudos to you!!

  3. Sucks they got your money. But you made it happen anyway. Congratulations, JJ!

  4. Wow, that's some list of authors who have influenced you - what a great and eclectic selection! Well done for persevering - you truly deserve your success now.

  5. Thanks everyone, and especially Jessica for allowing me on here. Of course I should have said something about self-publishing and KDP. Without KDP all my books would be gathering dust in the garden compost!(Who said that?!) JJ
