I remember when I started Writers' Ally. Yeah, I talked about it HERE, in case you missed it. Figured I'd write a little here, a tad more there, and that would be that. I never dreamed it would become all it's grown to mean to me. 

*SNIFF, SNIFF* We're growing up. *Wiping a tear*

It's my new outlet and a way to make connections with other writers, mainly all of YOU.

I am whole-heartedly grateful and humbled that you've chosen to stop by and share my journey as a zany mom and feisty writer. But that you've chosen to follow me, keeping in touch on a daily and weekly basis floors me. I am unworthy.

Psst....want'a know what I gut for y'all???
Are you sitting?
No drinks in your hands or hot coffee that could scald you, right??
Do you have flip-flops on? 'Cause you need to be careful walking...Ss...sorry. CHEESE.

For my first drawing, I have a TEN BOOK GIVEAWAY open INTERNATIONALLY.
TO ENTER GIVEAWAY: slick as nature's knoll covered in dish soap.
(Don't knock it. That slip-n-slide is a favorite of the kids out at camp. Granted, we provide the dish soap... GREEN-safe, of course.)
Simply FILL OUT the form at the bottom of this post and hit SUBMIT. DONE. Glad to have you. Rules: -Random selection and open INTERNATIONALLY to whereverBook Depository ships.
