Hello Riki,
I'm reading your Everland stories online. I think they're wonderful. I could read them all night long. Do you ever do booksigning? If so, let me know when and where so I can come.

Ricardo, thank you for including me as one of your friends. I checked out your book synopsis. Sounds interesting. What is the "big idea" that drives your story (i.e. what ethical/moral concept are you hoping to convey)? Nowen is interested.

Ricardo, I like those girls!

Comment by lo p on 9/11/2008 at 9:45 AM:
I feel like I have to work harder at the writing....it doesn't come as easy as pictures. Regardless, it is great to be able to communicate through words and pictures, by themselves or combined.
Comment by Julie Shore on 9/10/2008 at 1:35 PM:
Hey Riki--I was just checking out your site recently. I see we are in similar boats. Congratulations to you! How's the marketing going? J

Hey--I just saw your comment on my blog, and I guess all I have to say about Kate's choice of photots is: Whatever it takes! Ha! Julie

Hi Ricardo,
I have two manuscripts with publishing companies, they've had one of them since January so my fingers are crossed. If the books are rejected I plan on self-publishing and will certainly let you read it and see what you can up with. Thanks for the offer, it's greatly appreciated. ... more

Hi Ricardo--I'm still stuck on my email troubles. Did you receive the email I sent you? Did you respond? Either way, can you do me the favor of emailing me from my profile, and then let me know on my comments that you did? I would appreciate your help on this. Thank you! Julie
