HB: Yep. But today is little different than most nosh days, and I’m not happy about it.
SPAL: That’s right. Absolutely no treats for you because I’m staying in my bed for this one. I’m a little tired. So I’m handing the blog over to L. Diane Wolfe today.
HB: But I thought if we shared what the authors were writing and selling, they would share some good nosh with us.
SPAL: Nope. Not today. I’m tired of your behavior, stupid. You need to learn a good lesson.
HB: That’s not fair! Mean-ole-pansy.
SPAL: You can think whatever you want. Anyway, L. Diane Wolfe has finished a long time project. She wrote this for all the nice people to read. It’s a steal at 4.99 on ebook.
