This sounds like a great book. It's just perfect for Valentine's Day. Thanks for sharing this information with us. I appreciate very much your keeping us informed about the writing world, new publications, and contests.

I thought of your while it was snowing this weekend and I'm sure you had a beautiful snow on Cherry Mountain.

Thanks Brenda, The snow was deep and beautiful. I am still snowed in, but I hope with the warm up, I will soon be driving down the mountain.
