  1. Well done on being nominated. I hope you win something for the cover. I haven’t read the books because I haven’t found them in the iBook store on Apple. Are they only available from Amazon? If so I will have to get another ereader (is it still called a Kindle?) in order to read them.

  2. Well done, Janice, Congratulations. wonderful.
    My book TALON, CONNECTED became as well Semi Finalist in the cover competition with authorsdb
