Eat the Rich by Renee  Miller
"I went into this novel blind. I’d heard it was good but couldn’t remember reading any reviews so had no idea what I was getting myself into. And for the life of me I couldn’t get that Aerosmith song out of my head every time I looked at the title!..." Read more of this review »

Um, nope. Not unless I know them in real life. Makani is cool though, you can visit with her. ;)

Nasuesue Wow! You have a lot of friends! Are some okay for me? MMMMMOOOMMMM?!

Stephanie Skeem Wendy,

Thanks! You're too sweet. I don't know. You're bio is pretty cool. Slaving away on the family truck looks pretty impressive to me. I'm terrible when it comes to those sort of things. :)

Nice to meet you too.

Wendy Steph,
Your bio had me rolling. I've decided mine is entirely too straight laced. Maybe after NaNo I'll think of something a little different. The kids were most impressed by your shadow hoola-hooping too. You are one talented gal!

Nice to meet you by the by.

Stephanie Skeem Love your quotes. Thanks for the add.

Absolutally. Seriously. Lots of other ly's. I loved the premise and I'd buy the book. Getting to read it early is icing on the cake. You have my email, I think.

Ellen Sara I'm still blown away by your writing! I'm very lucky you were in my critique group. After we finish the second draft of the story would you like to be a reader?
