I just love these "breaking news" posts you do. Goodness so much drama with the FTC, you would think this was an episode of the Hills.

Looking for a great gift for YA, the new fantasy novel, "Gateway to DreamWorld," was released last month and has been receiving rave reviews.

During the cold months ahead, they will curl up in a warm blanket or in front of the fireplace and enter a fantasy world filled with excitement and suspense.

The book is listed on, Barnes&, and Powell’s

Donna said...

TJ & Colette - Thanks!

KC - I know, right!?! I think most everyone will be alright just as long as they are honest about where their books come from. I've always said where mine come from. I've been lucky to win a few and get some for review but usually they come out of my own wallet. Can you hear the pennies clinking? :)
