Hi Carmela,
Last month I appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show regarding the book I wrote and self-published. Oprah discusses the importance of teaching children to tell someone if they are being abused. Tell a parent, tell a teacher, tell a police officer.

Hi Carmela! Thanks for your blog help. :)
Comment by Debbie Dadey on 11/9/2009 at 1:17 PM:
Thanks Carmela. Isn't it strange that I didn't know before hand? Are authors always the last to know?
Comment by Debbie Dadey on 9/9/2009 at 8:19 AM:

I see you have the same post on your blob as on JacketFlap. Do you just copy and paste? I don't know how these things work, but I have a blog on my website.

Teaching authors is great!

Hi Carmela, I'm trying out JacketFlap! I'm so proud of myself, but realize I'm way behind. Hope your writing is going well, Debbie Dadey

Hi, Carmela,

I am trying to catch up -- or at least run after -- all the great things offered on the Internet. I probably won't be very active but at least I'm here today. Thanks for contacting me. I'm happy to be one of your official friends.

Always good to bump into you... in virtual space if not on Michigan Ave. Great to find you on Jacketflap.
Comment by Jill Westberg McNamara on 5/26/2008 at 11:07 AM:
thanks for recommending me, Carmela. Took me long enough to register. Now, I suppose, I'll need to find some sort of picture. And that bio. Ahhh!
