  1. Hello, I just started blogging. It’s all new. I’m a native Texan living in Texas – I think that’s novel. I don’t meet many of us. The best of luck to you in your future publishing efforts!

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Rebecca. It’s always great to meet another Texan 🙂

    Have fun blogging and writing!
