If you read this story, then you’ll definitely remember the sexy neighbor, John.  Daisy’s new book will focus more attention on this character!

Blogiversary Message and Giveaway from Jodi Ellen Malpas

My lovely ladies at Bookish Temptations,

I started off as a self-published author and landed in a world that I had no idea about. I’m ashamed to admit it, but I didn’t even know about this amazing online community of authors, readers and bloggers. My success since my This Man journey began has undoubtedly been assisted by bloggers, like you, who work tirelessly and at no benefit for themselves, other than the pure enjoyment of reading and sharing their latest find. I had no pre-promotion, no marketing, no contacts. I just pressed that publish button and was lucky enough for my story to fall into the hands on a few bloggers, whether by default or by talk in the community. From there, word spread, people talked and bloggers reviewed and shared my story. You have played a massive part in this, and I thank you wholeheartedly for that. I have a special folder on my laptop with all of your picture quotes. I’ll treasure them forever.

Congratulations on your 2 year blogiversary, you wonderful women, and keep up the fabulous work!

Much love from London-ish,
Jodi Ellen Malpas
