“When you miss someone, they leave a person-shaped hole behind in the world that nothing can ever fill. If you don't keep thinking about them, the edges of the hole shrink and fade. You can't let go or the last of them disappears.”
Martha Brockenbrough, Devine Intervention

“There's a fine line between funny and annoying – and it's exactly the width of a quotation mark.”

Mada, if you send me your mailing address, I will send you a signed bookplate with the stamp. I'll have to design one so it won't be instant. But I will do it!

Mada Can't wait to read Devine Intervention. It seems so funny and amazing and I loved the cover ever since I read the synopsis on Goodreads. Too bad I can get one with your special stamp from Book Depository :(.

Thank you, Jane! Nice to see you here, too! I hope you're having a delightful fall.


Lady Jane Hi, Martha! Miss Grammar Queen! Good to see you on Good Reads! Thanks for adding me here as well as on Linked In. You're so awesome, I love your posts, your articles, and I really need to buy that book of yours as well! The one titled "Things That Makes Us (Sic)." Before my grammar slips to the point of making YOU sic, I will end it here. :) Cheers and have a delightful afternoon, Madame!


Martha Miss Erin,

You have it...right? Let me know. If you don't, I can send.

Happy holidays!
