    Hey man, thanks for liking my post and for following me! I think this is a pretty cool website, it’s exactly what I wanted my blog to be when I first started, years ago. I had a few other sites, but before I had no guidance, now I know my way around! So glad I do because I got to find you

      Hi. That is so kind of you. I appreciate it. 🙂 Once I finish editing my second book over the weekend and close the 365 segment on the blog, I will be spending more time checking out everyone I have been missing for weeks! And see what you’ve written, too!

    Do you even actually READ my blogs here: https://darrelhoff.wordpress.com/
    It feels as soon as one of my posts are published I get a like from you immediately… so either you read VERY VERY fast or you’re like my blogging…for other motives (traffic to your blog? Hmm?) sorry… I’m just skeptical!

      I do. I work from home, so WP Reader is open all day long. Sometimes I catch things as soon as they refresh on my screen, sometimes I am busy writing and catch up all at the end of the day. No worries to be skeptical… when it happens within a minute or two, it does look kinda funny. I agree. 🙂

        Okay cool. Thanks for reading my blogs then. Appreciate that. I dislike it on instagram… when random spammers comment on your posts just to get attention to theirs…sigh 😦

        I know the feeling. I go thru an clean out all social media roughly once a month when I see those types. Twitter is the one that gets me. When someone follow me, if they have way more followers than people they follow, I just skip it as I know that’s all they are about.

        When I had less than 1000 followers on WP, I commented every day on every post. Now I’m more about reading and liking, and when I’m not actually in the middle of writing a book, I can interact more. I turn internet off during the day during those periods.

        I gave up on Instagram except for book friends as I enjoy their posts, but the rest I just kinda ignore.

      Hi! You’re absolutely welcome to anytime. I never worry about that sort of stuff — it’s always helpful and done in a positive way. I didn’t sign up for the tour only because I had already read and reviewed. I’m doing a post on her later this week, but if you need a spot filled, I can re-arrange.

        Oh its not a tour. It’s a new service I’m offering. I’ve featured her book on my sidebar with a dedicated page advertising it for a month. It’s worked out great 😊

        Thanks Jay!

    My name is David Belau and I have a short story I’d love for you to review.

    It’s called The Demon Hunter. I can send you a free Kindle copy if you’d like to review it.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Hi! I found your site through Didi Oviatt. She was promoting the cover of your third Braxton Campus Mystery. I’m excited to investigate them further.

      Hi! Great to meet you. Didi is fantastic. The first book in the series is FREE on Kindle downloads right now.


      My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, is also free on Amazon today.

    Tried to pre order the third Braxton novel but it’s only available in Amazon us. So that might E the last book I get from you.

      Hmmm, that’s odd and frustrating. I’ll check with the publisher to find out if there are any issues. I know of several folks outside the US that were already able preorder the 3rd book. What kind of error message were you getting?
