NEW NOVEL....The time is near.....SCATTERED PIECES

I think we've all been there......

That point in your life where you're full.... so full you just need everything to stop. You fill if you could just step out of yourself and get a chance to revive you'd be fine.... better....able to cope.

You've taken on the problems of others, the issues you can't control but you want to steer, trying to understand the "why and what if" of it all..... you need a break from it all.

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
