Regarding the contest: the race to get to 150 “Likes” on Facebook. Hmm…this is going to be trickier than I thought. Yessirree, I may have to rethink this.

Ruth offered to do the illustrations herself, but trust me, I’ve seen her work…”

Good things come to those who wait.

And! Until then! We’ll have at least once a week chapter releases to entertain us, starting back up again tomorrow night at midnight, with…
