Thanks!

Thanks, for the support! I love bouncing between ATL and DC. I want to bring NYC into the mix. My goal is to build enthusiasm for all our publications. I've been "good" busy the last few days.

Next summer, will be a blast!

Hey Stafford, it's been a year since I visited your page. I love what I see. Congratulations on everything. Look, I've been fooling around in MS Paint and producing some amazing stuff for an amateur, and I love that sketch of you on your profile. It looks like what I see can be done in MS Paint. Did you do it there? See some of my sketches on my blog http://artthebeautyoflife.blogspot.com/

Blessings,
Princess Ayo

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Blessings,
Princess Ayo

Hi Stafford. I see you aren't too far from me in Maryland. Shoot! I missed the Book Fair at Andrews Air Force Base, I'm often right near there. My children's picture book is about to be released by Sweeties Books.

SPAM IS SO NOT COOL!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
SPAMMING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED
