It's sad to know that because I haven't updated in such a long time and because there are suddenly so many new authors on AC, some people had no idea who I was and thought that story was for real.  Undecided lmao

I need to update more often.

If it helps any, people didn't "get" my April Fool's joke either LOL.  The people on my forum did... and Julilly got it (yay Julilly!), but out of 7 emails I had waiting for me when I got home, 5 seemed to think I was for real. Sad

I realize I have a warped, demented sense of humor that maybe not everyone shares, but seriously... did they not even LOOK at the site???  How could you take that seriously??  On April Fool's Day?

LMAO!!!!!!!!! OMG too funny. You know they probably saw the words published and never bothered to look. Now the rumor mill is going to go crazy and it'll make it's way onto LD that Broken is being published. You do realize this, right?

Broken as a kiddie book, that's the best and I love the chicken with the broken egg.

Which is sad, that no one bothered to look!  I spent HOURS on Saturday Paintshop Pro-ing the fake book pages! LMAO

I guess I fooled people though!  Mission accomplished? Stick out tongue

Did you see the publisher? Cheesy

LMAO aww well it was worth it and yes I saw my publishing company there woot! My first book and I didn't even have to do anything, but wait, that's a publisher's job anyway, right?

It took me forever to make my banner as well but that's because i'm really slow at it. At least we crack ourselves up lol that's the important thing.
