Dani Thanks for adding me as a friend. I took a look at your book, and I definitely want to read it! I am also an aspiring writer, and you also have the same gripe as I do about authors and books. The droning on and on for pages. I want to write something that is never boring, and you have to skim read most of it! Thanks again, and I will check out your book soon.


Bradley I hope you are having a good day! =)
