Robert Courtland grew up on the great plains and migrated to the foot of the Rocky Mountains for collage. He took his time getting around to writing seriously.

It seems that these days some people are too easily offended. I freely admit there are a great many things in this world that we should get offended at and it is really telling if you don't, but what I am talking about are things in ficiton.

Gusto Dave Robert,

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!
