It was fun writing about the radio station whose motto was, Where Love is More than Just a Song. A friend is a local DJ and Craig Warvel (Star 104 Erie, PA) let me come out and hang out with him in the studio one morning. I went on to write the second book in the series about two disc jockeys. Then another disc jockey with an Old English Mastiff (we had one at the time, and other than a slime problem, he was a marvelous dog). The only edits my editor asked me to do on that book was to deslime it. I told her that I'd already toned down the slime...my dog slimed a lot more than I'd portrayed in the book. She told me slime wasn't romantic. Who knew? So, I deslimed it and went on to do one last book. A book that featured a bit of stand up comedy. And I said goodbye to WLVH.
I'd finished writing the book when I heard that Avalon was sold to Montlake Book. They told me they'd not only be releasing Everything But a Dog, but they'd be rereleasing the backlist of both series as eBooks and paperbacks.

That's the story of ten books that came out from under my bed, went to a bunch of libraries, and then got a second life as eBooks and paperbacks.
And so for Valentine's, I'm offering the second short story, Everything But Heart. It's free for Valentine's on 2/13, 2/14 and 2/15. The first book, Nothing But Love is still available as well.
