Wow, who knew is right and reading the blurb I'd like to know more about what made Damon write this book.

I want to read Damon's book. It sounds so good. I wonder what made him write this book. I wish I was a fly on the wall.

I voted for Carleen

Carleen Brice said...

Kwana & JC, I'll see if I can get an interview with Wayon's to hear how he came to write a book about an older woman. I'm curious too!

Shalema & Aubrey, Thanks!

Thanks for the fantasy genre mentions. The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is blowing me away and I'm only halfway through it!
