Thanks for the support and the follow. I checked out your blog, and your covers look great. We can be tweeps now that we are following each other. Good luck with your books I will have to look into them.

And let us remember, too, the little blond Zerky who brought peace to the Middle East one snowy night near Mount Ararat where Noah’s Ark came to rest.”
