Thanks Jane. Unfortunately, none of my fiction meets the requirements – no detectives, too much violence, that sort of thing. I'm always interested in opportunities like these.

Darn... I say that because I know what a good writer you are... and we're looking for good writers.

I checked it out too, but my stuff has sex and violence...why would people want to read detective fiction without sex and violence anyway. ;)

Because they have enough sex and violence in their own lives and crave wit and a puzzle instead. :)
