And Now For Something Completely Different...

And I'd like to start with a quick note about Valerie Connelly.
Valerie interviewed me last week on her program, Calling All Authors and I had the chance to meet her last night when she visited the Robeson County Library in Lumberton, NC. It would take to long to list all of Valerie's experiences, achievements and travels, but safe to say I learned a lot from her last night! She's also the owner of Nightengale Press a truly unique publishing business model.

And now on to the news!
