I didn't even know the novella was on here until a few days ago -- because it's not under the right "Amanda Carlson." I emailed them to have it fixed :) But saw you marked it! So great. Looking forward to chatting with you!

Mine would be higher if I would get more books on here! But I swear I can't remember which # book goes with which story to give it the right review! I must be getting old.
