Wow, 100 Followers!


A special THANK YOU to all my followers and readers of my blog.  I have now reached over 100 followers!!!   I am so excited!  I have been blogging for seven months now.

There is much more to write about and I hope you all will continue to follow me.  I follow many of you too and have enjoyed your blogs immensely.  I continue to learn the ins and outs of blogging by reading some of your  fascinating work.

Blogging has opened my mind, my heart and my whole being to new and exciting things and enabled me to enlarge my small world and meet so many wonderful people.  I am proud to say many of you I can now call my friends.

Please continue with me along my ventures in creating and publishing more books.  I am happy to have published one so far but there are many more I have sitting in the wings just waiting for a chance to fly.  I will work hard to make them the best books they can be.

I am excited to bring my books to local schools and libraries.  Seeing the happy faces of children reading my books will make me realize why I am doing all this hard work!

Come along with me, my friends, for we have a lot of road to cover and like the saying goes, ‘you ain’t seen nothin’ yet’!!!!!  (I know this is a double negative, and ain’t isn’t a word but bear with me; it is how the saying goes.)  This doesn’t look good for a copy editor and author.

Thank you all for your support!!!  I couldn’t do anything without you!!!

REMEMBER:  READING GIVES YOU WINGS TO FLY!  (Boy, are we going to fly!!!)

Thought for the day:   Nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself!

      • Hi Janice, if you email me your questions I will try and answer them 🙂
        I would love to promote you and your books on my blog – if you go to my blog Contact Me, you can see what type of articles I do and what I would need from you – a GUEST AUTHOR article is my favourite kind because I learn lots more about authors that way and not just what I can find online (HINT) 🙂
