Hot off the press


Readers of Pam's Pages may remember a couple of references to Susan Grant's science fiction romances. I have loved most of her books, especially Contact, which I put on my list of books I can (and have) read again and again. The opening of that book grabbed me, and I think anyone who has boarded a big plane for a long trip can identify with the situation. As an airline pilot, Grant puts in enough details to make the story authentic without overpowering the human side of the story.

When I wrote about books I began but never finished, I listed Grant's Your Planet or Mine among the books that I never finished. She commented on that entry and generously offered to send me a copy of her latest release, Moonstruck. I just got an autographed copy, straight from the author, and I will be sending her thanks via a private email. However, I wanted to publicly thank her for the book and for her interest in me as a reader.

As a small press author, I have been on the same program with more successful authors. Some of them are gracious toward readers and other writers, while others are arrogant, haughty, or even angry that they must waste time with promotional activities.

Obviously, Grant is a classy writer, and I appreciate this book and the body of her work.

Thank you. The credit, however, goes to Susan Grant, who is concerned about keeping her readers happy.

I am looking forward to reading it. My daughter noticed the book this evening, and she is green with envy.
