Love the snazzy intros!ReplyDelete
It looks great! Thanks to everyone who participated and of course especially to Danny, who did yeoman labors to bring it into being... Can't wait to read everyone's posts...ReplyDelete
Congratulations on all the essays. I shall find a nice quiet spot in the park, take along some snacks and have a good read!ReplyDelete
Is it too late to submit an entry? Somehow this slipped past me, and I'd like to contribute an entry (on a Carole Lombard film, of course, especially since she's not represented -- any day in the blogathon is OK by me).ReplyDelete
I'm so excited about this book; I've always wanted to be part of an anthology and now I am.ReplyDelete
Thanks to Danny, a CMBA Board Member, for the hard work of putting together the eBook. I've formatted and published before on Amazon and Smashwords and know it can be tedious, exacting work. Really appreciate it.
