The fourth book in Jill Edmondson's Sasha Jackson PI series, Frisky Business, has just been released.Usually, I won’t even tell a potential date the titles of my books; if anything I might say they’re mysteries and leave it at that. It doesn’t seem to matter what the source of the date is - whether we met at a party, or on an internet dating site, via mutual friends, at a singles event...But I do try to make it clear upfront that writing and books matter to me. I can’t date a guy who doesn’t like reading, and thinks it’s a “boring waste of time” or something to do “when there’s nothing better to do”. As shocking a realization as this is, a lot of guys out there aren’t into reading. One man I chatted with via an online dating service told me he would never read my books, but maybe his teenaged son would. I hadn’t told him the titles or given him so much as a synopsis of the story.Also since re-entering the dating world, I’ve developed a new understanding of my relationship with reading and writing.
