  1. If you guys don't win, there should be an investigation!

  2. Thanks Liza and Christopher. Appreciate the support.

    Christopher, I have a friend, Guido No-Neck, who will take care of things for us. LOL

  3. it is a great post! i like it and thank you for sharing your experience!

  4. Well, the team talked me into this. I voted, but mind you, it's only because they agreed we'd use the spoils for reader giveaways. I need an amazon gift card like a hole in the head - do you have any ideas how many books I need to read for reviews and research? An embarrassment of riches, and I haven't begun to utilize NetGalley. Mercy! The writing life is good, isn't it? ;)

  5. Thanks for going over to vote, Christa.

    Dani, I'm like you, I have so many books backlogged for review, edits, etc, I hardly have time to read a book that I just choose for myself. LOL
