  5. If I were better prepared, I would give a link to my review of “Doll God,” Luanne. I am rather haphazard with my tags or I could lead us straight to it. 🙂
    I am proud of your book and how it transcends one book type or genre. It includes within your poems many messages which are meaningful, some spiritual to ponder upon.

    • Ah, thank you so much, Robin. Your support means so much to me! Very inspirational! I hope your weekend is a good one!

      • Luanne, so happy for you to have two published books. I had a lovely weekend, baby shower for a younger friend, grandies overnight and today, state park and dinner out with my little “shadow,” Micah.
