Mada, if you send me your mailing address, I will send you a signed bookplate with the stamp. I'll have to design one so it won't be instant. But I will do it!

Mada Can't wait to read Devine Intervention. It seems so funny and amazing and I loved the cover ever since I read the synopsis on Goodreads. Too bad I can get one with your special stamp from Book Depository :(.

Thank you, Jane! Nice to see you here, too! I hope you're having a delightful fall.


Lady Jane Hi, Martha! Miss Grammar Queen! Good to see you on Good Reads! Thanks for adding me here as well as on Linked In. You're so awesome, I love your posts, your articles, and I really need to buy that book of yours as well! The one titled "Things That Makes Us (Sic)." Before my grammar slips to the point of making YOU sic, I will end it here. :) Cheers and have a delightful afternoon, Madame!


Martha Miss Erin,

You have it...right? Let me know. If you don't, I can send.

Happy holidays!
