  1. Thanks, I'll be looking out for this one!

  2. Sounds interesting. Did you rate this one on Goodreads? Do you read mainly new books? What about your writing? Have you had anything published yet? I do need help with blogging, I don't even know where to start asking questions. Not sure how to send and receive messages except in these comments--I wish this worked more like Goodreads! Also, what is a GFC follower? And how do you find followers when you are just starting out?

  3. Hi Karyn!
    Thanks for visiting. This is a good book. I'm about three quarters way through reading it at the moment and will post a review here when I am finished. Rather than try to chat here in relation to your many questions, drop me am e-mail to:
    and I'll try to answer your questions by e-mail which would be a lot easier! Take care for now.

  4. How exciting! I wrote this book - always love picking up news of my work on the internet. Can't wait to see what you think of it. Sara
