Jo Glim Hi Carson,
I'm not sure if this is the way to submit a request like this or not... but here it goes!

Please take a look at my new blog, "Diary of a Nascent Author." The intent is to meld my business and writing expertise into helpful information for fledgling writers/authors.

I would love to hear your thoughts and insights. If you think it's useful please pass the information onto your friends. I would much appreciate your support.

Thank you,

message 3: by Ed

Ed Rambeau Thanks for your friend request, Carson, which I happily accept. You seem like an interesting person, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS. If that genre appeals to you, you may like it.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
