Hello from North Cackalackee

That's North Carolina for you non-southerners, bless your lil 'ole hearts! I am new to the forum and just wanted to say "Hi." I am spending time lurking (lurking is way more fun than hanging) around and trying to familiarize myself with the forum rules and all of the wonderful things you have to offer here.

I have written off and on for a number of years but just got serious about it this year, as I am working on my first novella for publication in the Romance/erotica genre. Thanks for letting me pop in! I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you and pulling from your vast knowledge and experience.

If there's one good thing about living in NC, it has to be the BBQ and the wings; so many choices, so little time...

Hey, I thought us Floridians were the only speshul snowflakes with places named like that! You know, like Caloosahatchee, Okeechobee, and such. Huh.

You should head over to the Towards a Newer Blue thread in the NC-17 section (if you're over 17). Its where us erotic romance/erotica/general pervies hang out and commiserate.

Oh, and welcome!
