Amanda Setasha Hall (azenakira) | 1051 comments Hey, I'll make you off in about an hour when I get home from work!

I haven't decided yet.
I can make a google doc layout if people think it'd help. We got our 5 (7) cards in the Review Chat already too. Haven't gotten a chance to look into the details myself yet. :)

If anybody wants to use a similar author whose name is really 'Richard' (for example), please link us to wikipedia/amazon/their website where their full name is stated when posting your review ☺
