After all, I want to touch the hearts of millions with my books, entertain, inspire, and empower. T

Tom Blubaugh Hi Carolyn,

Thanks for joining my circle of friends.

Kayla Stonor Thanks for friending, Kayla

message 4: by Bill

Bill Wetterman Hi Carolyn, if you are a Balducci fan, you have good taste. I read many of his books along with Tom Clancy and William Bernhardt. Glad to have you as a friend. If you like thrillers, consider Room 1515, my new novel. You can watch the trailer by going to Google and typing in Room 1515 YouTube to see if it is a read for you.
I've done mostly freelance. So this is my first novel, and I'm doing shameless marketing to obtain readers. lol

Douglas Wickard Carolyn, thanks for friending me on Goodreads! Can't wait to bite into ELEVEN! Nice having your support on Twitter as well.

Christine Hatfield thanks for being my friend

Thomas Amo Carolyn! Thanks for the blog comment! I totally get ya on the series thing!
Cheers Tom
