“What’s the matter with him?” Goth screamed at me. “Besides being married to you? I don’t have a clue,” I mumbled. She took a sharp intake of air at my comment. “Shit -- did I say that out loud?” I asked. I could see Jed’s head nodding. The kid on Alan’s left side snorted at my reply. “This is funny to you?!” Goth ripped into the youth. “It was,” he told her as he hefted her sagging Alan back up.”

David Crane Hi I, hope you are doing well. I just finished reading Honor Harrington Book 1 by David Weber. It is an interesting space adventure and I enjoyed it very much. There are so many novels to choose from, the world library is huge!I am a writer myself, and to improve on my craft, I read books on many genres and like to review them to share my opinion with other readers. From your messages and posts it is evident that you read a lot and enjoy reading. Best wishes to you always and a Happy Holiday Season!


Diamond Sky Hey my new friend- thanks for asking me to be your friend... I look forward to reading your books. Just wanted to let you know that I have a book out and its called " Confessions of a Female Sex Addict" by Diamond Sky and was hoping you could check it out AND if you liked it if you wouldn't mind writing a review? Its going for $2.99 US on Amazon.com at this moment. I would give it to you for free but I really, really need the sale right now. In debt up to my eyeballs. It would help me out so much. Thanks- you rock!
