Hey Tess - I'm with Arlice - our computers must be conspiring against us - that word verification still will not show up!!! But anyway, I did want to let you know that I am super excited for your next book venture. But what was the first one about? Oh, and I know what you're saying about taking the time to write. Before I die I'd like to get my compilation of short stories published, I haven't worked on anything new in more than a year! Too much blogging probably!
