"Then something did hurt. He could not see, but he knew they were cutting open his throat. The image of it made him shudder, and he hoped he wouldn't be sick. Then they began on his stomach. Something cold rippled in and out of his stomach. The old man next door coughed and gagged. Wormwood's mind chased the thought that had been arrested by his first fright. "Winners win," he thought, then he died.

Got 'em. You are welcome, although I confess I do this for myself too. I'd like to see this market grow and I know there are lots of readers out there that just don't know how to find us.

By the way, there is a Goodreads FB page for Clean romance promotions. Just thought I'd mention it.

Hi, Marti.  I filled out the comment on your blog, but for one reason or another I had to make the comment as 'Anonymous."  It was my 2nd attempt and that seemed like the safest way to get it to work.

thanks again!   :)

I don't know why it is making some people log in as anonymous, but I am getting the messages anyway. I think I'm all caught up...oops, here comes another one. :o)

Hi Marti,

I've tried mightily to leave a comment, but nothing is happening. I think it might have something to do with embedded comments in Blogger. I had those for a while on my Blogger based site and it wouldn't accept my own log in for some reason. I tried to comment in both Chrome and Firefox and tried to use Google Account, OpenID, URL, and finally as Anonymous. Nothing would take.

I'll PM you with the comment I tried to leave.

I deleted all the old comments thinking it might be too full. Hope no one else has trouble with it.

Thank you Marti.  I added mine to your comments section.

I think there is a huge market for clean/sweet romances, but it's hard to find them.

You're awesome! I listed my books on your blog. Maybe we should form a networking group. I know we all have readers who appreciate finding clean romance.

Thanks guys. I think I've got them all now.

I've been trying to think of a better way to promote the list, so I am certainly interested in suggestions.

Maybe we could all make a list and add it to a newsletter?

As far as I am concerned, anyone can copy the list and put it on their newsletter, website or blog. The more accessible it is to readers, the better.

Just added a comment with my books to your list. (Sorry for the strange formatting, not sure why it added extra spaces.)

Thanks,

I tried to add it to the blog but it's smarter than I!

(Hearts on Fire novella)

There's no sex, but there are some curse words, so PG-13.
