Gusto Dave Greg,

Thanks for approving us as friends.

I’m Gusto Dave Jackson, publicist for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and I wouldn’t be worth my salt if I didn’t tout our blog and organization. Chiseled in Rock http://chiseledinrock.blogspot.com features side-splitting satire and some flash fiction for intellectual readers.

Today on the Rock: pick up a laugh from the hilarious E.C. STACY, writer of risqué romances and basher of grammar and the overworked comma.

RMFW has several bestselling authors such as NYT Bestseller JEANNE STEIN and J.A. KAZIMER. You have an open invitation to the Rock for contests, entertainment, and an insight to the world of writing! Let’s follow each others’ blogs!
