Hardcovers for my Stonecharmer series shipped out today. It's not often that I get to ship out an international box, so I actually had to go to the Post Office to make sure I did it right. I did, so woo hoo! Way to be an international author. LOL! Go international!

Last time, I wrote about how I'd found an author while I was driving down the road. After a short search which turned up not much about her, I downloaded her Kindle sample. Was she going to be worth the $2.99 she wanted me to shell out for her book. I couldn't wait to look … Continue reading Because Good Writing Makes Happy Readers
Strangely enough, I think it's the key to world peace. Buckle up and put your hands in the air. It's going to be a wild ride. WII FM?
