I just want to let you know how much I enjoyed some of your phrasing: the comparison of a lover nibbling a lover's earlobe with reading about cannibals; the question of letting in a suitor or continue to read a boring book - it is this phrasing that got me to check the library for it. Thank you
Thanks for dropping by and trying out a portion of my book, "A Proper Pursuit." I'm so glad my phrasing gave you a smile or two. I had a lot of fun writing the book. I hope you enjoy the rest of the book.
Thanks for dropping in and reading a little bit of my book. I'm sorry for not responding sooner but I was on a business trip to Florida. Anyway, I hope you found something interesting in "A Proper Pursuit" and continued reading. If not...oh, well. I know that with a huge variety of people in the world, we can't possibly all enjoy the same books. Maybe next time.
Thanks for writing,
