But truly, though, the greatest reward is knowing someone I've never met found some truth and beauty in my words. Tell your friends! That is how books stay in the world. Thank you, again.

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!
