Vincent Zandri Hey, you're an old friend, at least through the magic of cyberspace !!!

Williammaltese Vincent. It's always my pleasure to run across another author, especially one with your impressive credentials. Although, as you've probably noted, I've not exactly been reading a lot of books, these days. Like you, I seem to find it hard to find the time, although you're admittedly doing better than I am. Anyway, glad to meet you. Don't be a stranger!

Jennifer Can I only get your books on a Kindle? or is there a place I can get a copy for my Nook?
