  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Love the background - I'm a Shabby lover, too!

  2. HAHA parole officer?? :-D (Maybe I shouldn't joke?)

    I'm going to check it out. Thanks!

  3. Alexia,
    I just found shabby yesterday and fell in love. Of course I'll probably change my background like I change my hair. Every week. Ha. Hope to see you around both here and at your blog.

    MuuHaaaaaHaaa (gleefully rubs black talon tipped fingers together) A lady has to have some secrets. But for any possible future agents skimming my blog. I do NOT nor have I EVER had a parole officer.

    FULL DISCLOSURE: Do not let my obvious failure at procurring said parole officer smear my reputation. Having a reason for AND obtaining a parole officer remains #97 on my bucket list.

  4. Thanks for the shout out! It's always fun to find new writing friends :)

  5. Your very welcome. Yes it is wonderful for new friends and writers/readers/agents/editors to network. Have a great day.

  6. Great idea. My mom is begging to read some of my novels. I tell her once I secure an agent, I'll send some along.
