This is a horrible attempt by Amazon to turn over to a computer program, things that should be handled by a real live person. The program adds incorrect information all the time - particularly to characters and locations. Feel free to go into the edit history and reverse those submissions.

Thanks much. TL

However, the next time you have a birthday, you should tell your family that you want a autographed copy of this as a present.
Hope you're enjoying your summer. We have been enjoying ours and having some book signings along the way have even made it better.
I notice that the suspense and thriller group has just added my book, "Splattered Blood" to their shelf. I'm very proud of that. I forger, have you read it yet?

I sent the last note before I noticed you'd joined the J. D. Robb Rules group. This is your official welcome and I hope you'll add to the discussions as well as feel free to create your own. Please post a comment in the Welcome New Members discussion topic so others may welcome you and know more about how you became an In Death fan.
You gave me a great tip and here's what I hope is a good one for you. It appears you are a fan of the In Death series. You may be interested in the J. D. Robb Rules, which is devoted to the series. Check it out - would love to have you join if it works for you.
Hi, Karen. Got the FB request, thanks. I'm also on Goodreads. I'll try and find you there, but if not, feel free to throw me an invite. Not on librarything or netgalley, but will check it out.
