A good day to pay it forward

cj Sez: Yep, today is a good day to pay it forward… 
   Mobile area readers and writers, mark your calendars for this one-day FREE conference:

   Browse the shelves of Mobile's beautiful Ben May Library, sit in on workshops, and meet local authors who'll also be available to sign their books. I'll be moderating a panel and hope to see you there. 

   Authors everywhere:

   And this from The Mad Catters announcing the launch of Book 8 in their Familiar Legacy Series:

   “Did I mention that Trouble's latest adventure, TROUBLE'S WEDDING CAPER, by Jen Talty, is available Feb. 4th? Perfect timing for Valentine's Day."

  That’s it for this week’s post. You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same.

I loved the way each chapter ended with a big “omigosh” moment that made it hard to put it down, just because I needed to find out what happens next. I suppose that’s the essence of suspense. Her style reminded me of Dan Brown, since he similarly keeps those chapter-to-chapter hooks going.
She obviously did a lot of research in several diverse fields to keep the details so wonderfully specific and accurate relative to weaponry, aeronautics, biology, astronomy, Japanese, and various secret government agencies and programs. Very impressive.
Great job!  I can’t wait to see her next one.
