Oooh you named a couple there I need to add to MY shelf as well! Thanks! =) Nice meeting you!

my pleasure! =)


Kellie Elmore lol! Yes we do! Looking forward to our friendship! =)


Patricia Graham I love your bio where you speak if how language and more importantly writing should be left in it unedited form. I could not agree more. I have went around and around about dialects and it role in soutern literature. Being a true hillbilly myself, I believe that you incorporate a standarized form of English-then society is bastardizing my culture, beliefs, and traditions.

I'll get off my soap box-- thank you for signing on as my friend-- we hillbilly redneck women need to stick together. lol


Christine Hatfield thanks for being my friend


message 3: by Nancy

Nancy Kellie, glad to be your new friend. Feels kind of weird having an author following my reviews.....you're not grading them, are you? ;-) I'll have to put your book on my to-read shelf. I do love southern fiction even tho I'm from Iowa....don't know why. Fav southern authors: Larry Brown, Rebecca Wells, whoever wrote "Girls and Trucks," Sue Monk Kidd, + others.


Kellie Elmore Nice to meet you.


Douglas Wickard Kellie, thanks for friending me on Goodreads!
