Heather will contact Createspace about that and soon I will have actual book-books with my “real” (at least the one I use for writing) name. And I’ve been invited to do a signing at … More Writer Wednesday – We have “real” books!
Yesterday I went to a baby shower for a friend, a former coworker. I am very happy for her, not for the usual reasons of the new baby. I’m very happy for her because her life was turned upside down a few years ago. And it was not her fault. She’s a cute, bright, outgoing … More Mitzi Monday…Memories…not all good
