They deserve your best writing, research and story. Don't shortchange your own story by not getting the quality presentation of your book.You can write the best story but, if the cover isn't good or there are formatting errors galore, you'll lose your reader. It's not their job to edit your work. You only lose that reader once. They won't be back.

Hi, Beth. It's great to see you here, too. One of these days, I just HAVE to get down to see you all again. It's been too long since I visited.

Hope you're having a good day, even if it IS a bit frosty! LOL

Hi, Linda. It's wonderful to connect here on Goodreads, too. Thanks for the recommendation. I love whodunits. If you'd like to try a spicy (not erotic) contemporary romance, I can recommend my book, "Satin Pleasures". It's funny and will get your motor running, too!
