Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. I've read Gardner's The Art of Fiction, which taught me a few things.

    1. I have a lot of his writing books (maybe all?), but have yet to read one. Looking forward to reading this one.

  2. Clever thinking from Deb ! I haven't heard of your book, I got The dead secret by Wilkie Collins, so now let's play 😉

    1. Wilkie! I have about a third left of The Woman in White. Really enjoying it, though I've been reading it since September. lol Enjoy your read!

  3. I like books about writing - hope this one is interesting and inspiring!
