I love all seasons, really. I get excited about each one in their turn. Know what I also get excited about? All these TERRIFIC links! Check ’em out:

>> There are certain books (like Daughter of the Forest) that I will continue to reread my whole life.
>> My goal is to publish 3 novels/projects this year. 🙂
