An enjoyable book from the master

I have enjoyed Stephen King's books for longer than I care to remember. Some are wistful with just a light supernatural touch. Others downright terrifying. And some are like Joyland, a masterful mix of both. A pleasur

Hi Timothy! Lovely to meet up again, even if it is in cyberspace. To be honest, I am a totally clueless techno-eejit....and have never been able to master Goodreads, to the point I am rarely if ever on it. Delighted though you are putting up an author page, just wish I could have been more help!


Timothy We meet again miss Dane. Thank you for your friendship. Any idea how to make an author page on this site? I'm finding it quite difficult to navigate.


Savannah Raven,
Thank you for the friendship.
Stay naughty,

Bill Hi Lisa,

I'll take a look at your work. My latest is : The Feathery...It blends romance, suspence and history in with the game of golf. Check it out on Amazon UK.

Best and thanks for the UK frindship.

Best,

Bill

Raven Dane A bit alarmed with this networking site. I posted a review on a piece of writing, the review didnt appear but an icon stating that I liked the chapter did. Nothing could have been further from the truth!
It was not only poorly written and inept but was insulting to the spiritual beliefs of many people ,myself included.
Worse of all there was no way of deleting the icon.
