SALT
by Lorette Luzajic

I just finished reading this wonderful collection. I was reading it slowly. I am sure it will not defraud me with its last offerings. So far, it’s been another emotional rollercoaster.

Poppy Hey Rose! Author's Registry is based in England - so thanks for responding, but I am pretty dubious about its legitimacy. Or at most, it appears to track down those printed materials for which royalties were not paid and SHOULD have been.

BTW, I see below that my original email address is wrong. Here is my current one: bfsheeps@gmail.com. Love to hear from you!

Poppy Rose, I need to get in touch with you, but I don't seem to have your email address. Here is mine:

jschutz@nc.rr.com

Please send me an email, and I will fill you in. BFS (Poppy)

Rose Boehm Never mind. I'll plod through it. Can only teach me something...


Katherine Marple Thanks for adding me as a friend, Rose Mary! I tried to look up how to do the author page, but I've completely forgotten how!
