Meah. Based on movie trailer, I really thought it'd be much better.

The writing was good, but I found it a bit slow-moving. As a writer, not sure what the author could have done better. Makes sense that he needed time to set things up. Perhaps I just

Jan Cullinane Hi Theresa,

Another place to connect!

Gusto Dave Theresa,

Thanks for approving us as friends.

I’m Gusto Dave Jackson, publicist for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and I wouldn’t be worth my salt if I didn’t tout our blog and organization. Chiseled in Rock http://chiseledinrock.blogspot.com features side-splitting satire and some flash fiction for intellectual readers.

Today on the Rock: pick up a laugh from the hilarious E.C. STACY, writer of risqué romances and basher of grammar and the overworked comma.

RMFW has several bestselling authors such as NYT Bestseller JEANNE STEIN and J.A. KAZIMER. You have an open invitation to the Rock for contests, entertainment, and an insight to the world of writing! Let’s follow each others’ blogs!


Marne Ann Kirk I'm so happy to see you here, Theresa! Amazing bar cookies, btw. Thanks again. Have you joined any groups yet?


Lizzie T. Leaf Nice to have you as friend here on Goodreads, Theresa!


Theresa Rizzo Thanks, Peg. Just learning how this works, but thought I'd take the plunge.
