Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that My Short Story Prequel -Shattered Souls of Innocence is due to release real soon!

Like your wacky wednesday. Cute hats. Your car looks like mine when I have grandchildren in it. I carry permanent activity boxes for each one of them. Have fun.

We always look like The Grapes of Wrath when we travel as well....uhmmm we don't always wear that type of clothing. :-)

I love all your tid bits of info- these were some great sites! Thanks for sharing the wealth. I'm taking a break from all the "business" of writing this week.

Hi, Ruth! We've been lucky with our kids. They've always liked to travel. Now they are teenagers and we don't hear a peep out of them thanks to their Ipods! LOL

LOL Stacey! We are a crazy group that's all I can say. Their hats in the picture are actually pillows! I just love their creativity! :)

Taking a break huh...I guess that's allowed. :) Missed you Friday!
