Tom Barnes Hi Carolyn,
Well, here we go again finding something else in common. Goodreads is very new to me, but I have a feeling I'm gonna enjoy it once I get the hang of how it all works.
And if I have a dry day I can always fill in by posting my review of your 'Frugak Book Promoter.'
Tom Barnes



Stacy-Deanne Stacy-Deanne Hello, just passing through to say hello! Look forward to being your friend here! Best Wishes!


Jeremy I want to apologize for the all the recommendations from me yesterday. I wanted to share the Stoker Award news, and I only pressed the send button once--I'm not sure what happened to create so many messages. Some weird glitch.

Argh...this is terrible...

Again, I'm very sorry.

-Jeremy


Jeremy Here’s wishing you a nifty New Year filled with noiseless noses, neato nicknames, noble Nebraskans, gnarly narcoleptic nebulas, and novel novels about nut-eating narwhals and novercaphobic gnats.

-Jeremy :)

P.S.—I’m currently offering autographed/personally-inscribed copies of my novel, Vacation, with free shipping for those in the US. If there’s anything you could do to help me spread the word about this, I’d really appreciate it. Feel free to click here for details:
http://hauntedhousedressing.com/signe...


Jeremy Hi Carolyn!

Here’s wishing you a yippee-filled Yuletime overflowing with yard-long yams, yapping yoyo-yanking yetis, yak-milk yeast-cakes, and yellow yarn-yielding year-end yard-gnomes.

-Jeremy :)


message 6: by Jeremy (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:07PM)

Jeremy Hi Carolyn!

If you don't mind sharing--I was wondering, what's your favorite novel of all time? Or novels?

Here’s wishing you a fantastic day filled with fabulous friendships, fanciful festivities, and frolicking phantom footstools.

-Jeremy :)

Jeremy Thanks for the friendship, Carolyn! If you end up checking out any of my work, I'd love to hear what you think.

And here’s wishing you a fantastic day full of first-rate fates, fascinating flavors, and famous fire-eating ferret faeries.

-Jeremy :)
