  1. Thank you so very much! What a wonderful, wonderful surprise! I enjoyed being a part of the Opening Kickoff for your blog. You ladies cover such a variety of worthy subjects, and the reader comments are fun and enlightening. I wish you all much success! May the Lord always bless you and keep you in His care.

  2. Congratulations, Virginia and Janalyn! Thank you ladies, and thanks also to everyone else who's visited and commented, for your many kindnesses.

  3. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I feel like Cinderella, about to go to the ball, only instead of having a fairy godmother I have inkies!

    Yesterday I identified a goal of ramping up my blogs. I even posted on a forum asking for help finding a good three-column blogger template. Imagine my amazement to learn of my win of, among other things, a blogger makeover. I'm grateful for that, and for the other author helps. I love books and review them regularly on one of my blogs. I especially treasure autographed books. And did I mention I love both coffee and surprises?

  4. Here at the inkwell, we know nothing happens by accident, so thanks be to our Father for choosing two of our special readers!

    It's been so much fun to get to know you all, and we are very blessed to be able to share our thoughts, our love of fiction and the wonderful faith we share.

    Congratulations, Virginia and Janalyn!!

  5. Virginia and Janalyn, what a blessing to be able to bless both of you! Meeting new friends has been one of the unexpected bonuses of starting this group blog. I look forward to hearing more from you and our other lovely readers in the months to come :+}

  6. Janalyn,

    Wow, I never thought of myself as a fairy godmother. I will be sticking an autographed hardback version of The Novelist by Angela Hunt into the mail today.


  7. Vriginia,

    Many blessings. Your little cat profile picture always brings a smile to my face.

    I will be sending you an autographed trilogy of Diann Mills novels. I hope it brightens your day as well.
