Linda LaRoque Yes, it is. But, that's the way things have been going lately. Shoot me an email with your snail mail address and if it doesn't cost and arm and a leg, I'll mail you a print copy of Birdie.

Linda LaRoque Hi CJ,
Can't seem to keep up with it all so doubt you found anything new on my page. Oh, I take that back, I've had two releases since January. Hope they're up there.

I'm having a contest on my website at www.lindalaroque.com
There is still time to enter to win a sterling silver prickly pear cactus charm.

You have a great week too and thanks so much for keeping in touch! I'll check out your page and see what's new with you.
Linda


Christine Hi Linda, stopped by to see what's new on your page. Have a great week.

Hugs, Jeannie


Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hi Linda and thanks for adding me. I think we're friends on at one other group. This is such a wonderful site, too. Just wanted to shout hello to another 'Texas Sister'. I read you bio and I totally understand about 'learning' how to write a novel and perserving. I'm currently co-authoring a romantic suspense with a friend of 30+ years (and we're still friends! LOL). I love you website and I'd love for you to visit mine. I'm up for any and all suggestions regarding writing, getting published or the website, etc.
