Have a great week!

Thanks for the great links, Danyelle.

I was glad to see Nanthan say it's about social networking not promotion. Hear that Tweeters and Goodreaders who DM me to buy your book which is a genre I don't read. Which you would know if you looked at my bio. ;)

Thank *you*, Stina! :)

Definitely yes to social networking not being about promotion. Most people tend to ignore commercials, I think. :)
