Yee ha! I've got 100 Followers! Thank you everyone. I soooo appreciate my book friends.


On a personal (and sad) note, which I'm writing here because my son reads my personal blog but not my book blog, and I just had to share with someone:

My son, who is 16, was at a party Friday night and the next morning, while on Facebook, he found out that one of the kids at the party had committed suicide at 4:00 that morning. My son wasn't close to him, but the neighborhood is small and everyone knows everyone. The high school's graduating class had 25 or 30 kids, and this boy was one of them. He was a football player and wrestler and the cutest, nicest kid. It's tragic, and I hate that these teenagers are getting their first taste of grief, as did I at the same age. You just want to put them in a bubble, don't you?

Thank you, my book friends, for listening :) I do hope you all have a wonderful week of reading. Be sure to give your loved ones an extra big hug today.

Feel free to comment on my books or my news. Didn't mean to bring everyone down!
