Back atcha!

Congrats! And good luck in your blitz! I know how well you can write so I anticipate good news early in the new year!

Thanks for the news! And can I say how good it is to see all these familiar names and their successes written in your pixels?

Well, I haven't been writing like crazy, at least not on my novels, but while I have been in kind of a writing stasis, I've come up with a few solutions and twists to expose my characters to, so it's all good.
>Lots of love and hugs to everyone - have a wonderful

You too Julie! Merry Christmas.
