It is good to see you here. Thanks for the friend acceptance. It is always fun to see what you and others are reading. I just found this place yesterday, Gregg Olsen recommended it to me.

Gusto Dave Hi Cathyscott! Thanks for approving us as friends.

I’m Gusto Dave Jackson, Publicity Chair for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and I wouldn’t be worth my salt if I didn’t contact book lovers to tout our blog and organization. Chiseled in Rock http://chiseledinrock.blogspot.com features side-splitting satire, cartoons, and some flash fiction for intellectual readers.

This week we’re poking fun at Jonathan Kellerman, spreading it on thick about what authors might do to stay published, and debunking stupid writing rules.

We also plug an occasional book and interview bestselling authors. For writers, we offer tips and agent/editor interviews. RMFW has several bestselling and award winning authors as members such as Mario Acevedo, Joan Johnston, C.J. Box, and Carol Berg. You are invited to follow “The Rock” for contests, entertainment, and an insight to the world of writing! We follow all bloggers who extend the invitation back!
