WOW! You've been busy.
Good to know, Emily-Jane. I wish you great sales with your books. Thanks for stopping by.

I am writing my first historical fiction now and I understand about the gaps in time. It certainly is difficult to deal with and keep the facts as accurate as possible. I may have to enlist you gals to give me some feedback once I complete it.
It sounds like y'all are great organizers.
That is terrific news! Congratulations to both of you!
Cyndi: Sorry, no arguments, only a slight disagreement about the tone of the books. The good thing about writing with someone you're so close to, is you can simply tell them what you think, discuss the difference and then come to a decision. That's how it is with us, and though we haven't had any arguments (aside from whose name would come first on the book which was easily settled by going with a pseudonym), we have discussed many, many aspects of writing historical literary fiction vs. contemporary fiction.
Whew! I'm glad you get along so well. I figured that because you're both sweetie pies, but thought I'd ask just in case there was drama to unearth. LOL
Christy: Maybe we can meet here again next year.
Sounds good to me.

I guess I'm not quite that adventurous Mary, LOL but I do appreciate you taking my husband to climb Diamond Head while I recuperated from your EXCESSIVE energy. And it was neat to meet a man from North Carolina who set us up in a condo on the 19th floor with three ocean views! One of the highlights of the trip other than meeting you in person, was going to Pearl Harbor. Wow! What an experience that was for patriotic folks like my husband and I. I shed a few tears at the Arizona Memorial. So quiet.I could look right down into the water where so many of them are still.
Incredibly relaxing and I think I could write there on the balcony with no problem.
I totally agree with you. I've seen some really bad formatting and still prefer a hard book.
Only time will tell, my friend.
Mary also contributed some great recipes for my cookbook, including Stuffed-in-the-trunk mushrooms. Available in Kindle or paperback at Amazon.com
Mary, please tell Ron how much we enjoyed his company as well. Maybe we can link up again somewhere in the future. Hugs to you both and continued success with your writing, networking, art, and photography.

- Leo's Legacy -- the fourth book in the Zodiac Series, which takes place in my country of birth, Rhodesia (nowZimbabwe), and is based on true events. Zimbabwe currently is governed by a ruthless dictator who appeases his disgruntled citizens by allowing them to attack farmers and force them to give up their farms, murdering and torturing them if they feel like it. They also maim and torture the animals, and I plan to bring this horrific situation to people's attention in this story.
- Ass Backwards – the fourth in the Redneck P.I. Series, as told by quirky character Gasser Cunha, whose many talents include farting, computer hacking, and superior guitar playing. This one is about illegal meth labs.
I can hardly wait to read that one!
- My first psychological thriller.
Thank you for the delicious Melktert ! I wish you great sales with all your endeavors.
