Hi R.P.:

I must say thanks for the connection that friendship brings! I simply love the re-tweets! Thanks Loads...
I do hope that you've enjoyed the short story:
"Bowery of the Crimson Frock and Flesh!"

The continuing adventure of Philadelphia's Fairmount Park continues in "REGATTA" and "SHAMAN" from:
"FAIRMOUNT": Terror In The Park

Peace and Love,

Dale Thele R.P., thanx for accepting my friend request. Looking forward to reading A Dead Red Oleander :)

Christine Hatfield Thanks for being my friend

R.P. Dahlke Hi L.C. ! glad to see you here on GR. Great place to be!

message 6: by L.C.

L.C. Hayden Thanks for befriending me. I've downloaded some of your ebooks and have enjoyed them. Good going!
As you may remember, I left my traditional publisher and am now an e-book author. I've made more money and have had a lot more exposure now that I'm an e-author. Loving it--but still have a long way to go. I need people to download my books and read them. That's always so hard. Still, it's a nice adventure!

message 5: by R.P.

R.P. Dahlke Hi Zoe, I just finished my third Lalla Bains book. Been selling pretty well, and surprisingly my romantic sailing mystery is also doing well now... I'll do a trilogy on this subject since I have years of notes on Mexico and sailing and all the characters down there.
I'm really happy being an Indie author on Amazon. Those checks every month take the sting out of all the Publishers rejection over the years....LOL.
How about you? What's doin?

Zoë Sharp Hi Rebecca
