Mary Deal Congratulations, Glenna. Have you had your book edited? Am asking because I am putting a book of poetry together and have not begun to look for an editor of poetry.


Glenna or Multiplicity Hi Mary just letting you know that My first published bood of poetry will be coming out on Barnes&Nobles and Amazon about july end. Title is 'Tapestrys Of Life'

I am somewhat nervous at this new step out to share my world of thoughts as they are expressed on the printed page. Wish me luck!

Glenna
