    Oooooooohhhhhhh!!! This is sooooooo goooooooood!!! When is this book due to release? Late Spring?? It’s late Spring here!! Isn’t it late Spring there????? You need to live in Florida – – it’s late spring here . . as a matter of fact, I think it might be summer – – whew! It’s hot here – – where’s my back porch, comfy rocker, glass of ice tea AND MY TAMARA LEIGH BOOK????????? Ok, ok – – I know patience is a virtue . . . I’m obviously lacking in that grace.
    I have a question for you . . . why do you need to cut words? Does it have to do with the format of kindle readers or some other reason? Or does it have to do with looking at the book from a past-written and need to stream line the wording POV? Just curious . . .

    • Another big smile, courtesy of Pam! I’m sorry to say that late spring here means late May/early June. Sorry–but it will be a better story for all that extra baking time 🙂

      So why all that cutting? This story was written in the 90’s, and since then my writing skills have grown considerably. I write a tighter story now, which makes for better pacing and far less repetition. The substance remains, just minus the annoying asides and needless wording and rewording. Nothing to do with reader formatting.

      Bless you, dear friend,

    Oh – Ok – now I understand – – and since you’re the writer – I’m sure you know your stuff. Just wanted to make sure I wasn’t losing any of those precious “potato chips” or crumbs. But I know the story will be perfect when you & God get done baking it!! I’ll wait until “late spring” arrives and then dig in!!! Your books are always a blessing – my back porch, rocker and ice tea await!!
