Savannah Patty, thank you for the friendship.


Anna Marie Thanks for accepting my friend request, Patty! I am reading Writers of the Future Vol 27 and enjoyed all the layers of This Peaceful State of War so that I had to look you up on Good Reads. I have been working on a couple short stories myself. So thank you for the perfect example of one that is original and satisfying.


TashJann Thank you for connecting with me, Its so good to have another book loving reader as a goodreads friend. I look forward to sharing my love of books with you. Please check out my book blog "Where Every Book = A New Adventure", if you haven't already. -♥-
