Author is Miranda July...I just finished it last night it was due monday...oops i guess i'll have to pay a fine lol...Anyway I like shortstory books I might add that group to my shelf, this one is funny in a real surprising kinda way...At times her humor and words are so unexpected its kind of jarring...forwarning some stories could be considered R-rated
Hey I saw that u were in the short stories group...Im reading a great compilation of short stories "No one Belongs here more than You" right now pretty funny writer Its bright yellow cover attracted me at the local library and It happens to be a really fast read...
Thanks for the note you left on my profile. I've really enjoyed the Janis Harrison gardening series, but it's the only series of that sort I have read. However, I do know that Ann Ripley and Rebecca Rothenberg also write gardening series. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
I thought you might be interested in a contest. It’s wacky, creative and ‘killer’ fun. ‘Create a Corpse’ Contest lets you name a character in my suspense novel Divine Justice. Of course, you guessed it—the character dies
For contest details, just scroll over the following URL, copy and paste into your browser. This is a great contest for avid readers who’d like to be part of the process. I look forward to receiving your entries. :)
~Cheryl Kaye Tardif,
I'm not sure if you've bought Whale Song already, but I thought you might be interested in this:
As part of my month-long virtual book tour, today's special treat is an excerpt from my new bestseller Whale Song, a novel that will change the way you view life...and death.
I ONCE FEARED death.
It is said that death begins with the absence of life. And life begins when death is no longer feared. I have stared death in the face and survived. A survivor who has learned about unfailing love and forgiveness. I realize now that I am but a tiny fragment in an endless ocean of life, just as a killer whale is a speck in her immense underwater domain...
Read the excerpt.

Happy reading! :)
Thanks for accepting me! :) And I am sure you will enjoy Whale Song, based on the novels you've read. It is my "heart book" and a portion of my royalties is going to help 3 major Edmonton charities.
I am going to start reading Lovely Bones next...whenever I can sneak some time away from writing...lol
Well, since I've only read 3 Christie novels I'm not informed enough to answer your question. I really enjoyed Murder on the Orient Express; do you have any suggestions for my next Poirot novel or first Marple book? (And Then There Were None is, so far, my ultimate favorite.)
About Kid B, as far as writing, it was decent. I was really agitated with the portrayal of the b-boy/b-girl world being parallel to that of gangbangers. As someone who danced from the mid 1980's on, this was a false look as far as I'm concerned. Overall, 3.5/5 for me.
I am currently reading the first book of the Dark Hills Divide series. It is good so far. The cover is what drew me in. You should check out Percy Jackson and the Olympians series they are wonderful! Since you teach preschool I wonder if you have heard of the book: The Sound of Colors. It would be a great book for that age. The illustrations are some of the most interesting I have ever seen.
Wow ! A preschool teacher ! That is awesome !! My daughter is in preschool and she has this great teacher who I am soo thankful for. I think that is so important because it is their first exprience of school !! As for my hubby, he is a musician. So he got the book to help inspire his creative process..And me, I like to write fiction, erotic stories, poetry...Nothing that I have ever submitted before though...eeek !! :) What are your favorite things to paint?
My last note disappeared so I am trying again..My husband actually got The Artists Way as a gift...It was in our house for literaly years before I picked it up and read it..I liked it, enough to buy two more of her books..Someday I want to write and have it in the public eye, so it was nice to find her book :) So you mentioned wanting to write, but then found your true passion, what is your passion? Well, hope you are having a great wekend !
Hello ! I love your shelf ! How did you like The Artists Way? I thought it was pretty interesting. I followed the course and was inspired to buy two more of her books..I am not a novelist yet, but who knows. :):) I used to live in Austin ! I miss it sooo much !!! :) Well I just wanted to say hello :)
