Jane Dickerson Hi,

Thought you might like to know that Letters to a Young Madman has been chosen as a finalist for a 2013 MN Book Award. Here's a link if you want to see all the books in all categories: http://www.thefriends.org/programs/mn...

Happy reading,
Jane


Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hey Nick. Thanks for the add. Austin huh? I was there last wkend. We have a son & family that live there, but my hubby was born and raised there. GO HORNS! Anyway, if you have time, I'd love for you to visit my web site, www.jeanniebarber.com. I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it. I’m co-authoring a novel with Patty Wiseman, another friend on Goodreads. We’ve known each other for over 30 years. While you're there, please sign the guestbook, too! There’s also a link to our book you can click on…clairkelley@synthasite.com. This site is brand new and in the editing stage as is our story. Please visit it as well. We’re both very green, but we’ve met so many people on this site willing to reach out and offer advice or a guiding hand, we feel very blessed.
Thanks,
Jeannie
