    Not that I’m likely to buy something called Redneck Cinderella without a very strong recommendation from someone I trust, BUT — how can a book that’s not released until March help me get ready for Valentine’s Day???

    @Miki It is just a promo thing I received in the mail but some readers like a heads up on what is coming out so I thought I would post it. I should have marked it promo and will do so in the future.

    @Jane: That’s fair, Jane. It is prettily organized. But I was surprised they didn’t even include links! (One of those [e]books has already made its way to my reader…:wink: )
