Happy 4th of July Happy Birthday America Land that I Love Best Country in the World STAND UP!!! I am an American! My greatgreatgreatgreat grandpa fought in the American revolution.His son fought in the War of 1812. I had one greatgreatgreat grandpa on the Union side of the Civil War and one on the Confederate side. Their grandsons fought in WW1 and their sons in WW2 including my father and Four if his brothers. My brother-in-law was in the Korean War and the Cuban crisis. My husband fought in Vietnam Nam twice. Daniel Boone is one of my great grandfathers and he opened the trail to the West. One of my grandfathers and two if my grandmothers were Native Americans. It's time to stand up for being an American people and not just because its the 4th of July and you get a holiday. It's time to protect our Constitutional Rights from these so called politicians in Washington. It's time to watch the votes and laws being passed in our names that take away our rights and freedoms. It's time to Stand Up!!! My grand pappy said, "You got to stand for something or you will fall for anything." STAND UP!!!

Why would someone get your book for free, read it, tell the whole plot and trash it and do the same to another they get for free? It seems I have an enemy or a great friend. If my books are this bad, I should quit writing and save myself and my poor readers, especialy one from free reads that are horrible. But why read them and tell the WHOLE plot? This is a mystery to me. Please someone tell me is this normal? I had to work hard to get my published books reviewed and they are all grand most five star. So I try to self publish a few just for fun. I guess that was a big mistake but its funny that I am making money on them when they aren't for free. One I offered for free on one day was downloaded 300 times. Is that bad? I just want to know if this is just deliberate trashing or if it is a real person. She hates regency but that's what I write. One is a satire and she did not understand it was supposed to be funny. Okay I'm a failure and on my birthday. I shall crawl away and lick my wounds again; as this person has ripped me open. Write me: Rosedru@aol.com I would love your advice. Thank you

Somebody tell me what is wrong with Face Book? I can not seem to get this social media right. Do you have any advice for newbies? It's all getting to be a little much and I have tweeted my fingers off and my books still get no reviews. I do get bad o Ed for the free ones. Why is that? I am blocked from my own Pinterest page and don't know why. LinkedIn is still a mystery. So what do I do? It's a mystery. If you have any advice please let me know ASAP! Love to all? lol I have a new review to post. Title: The Count's Last Mistress Author: Bess Greenfield Review Rating: Five +Stars Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs Genre:Historical Romantic Fantasy in Paris 1871 Passionate Sparks: an Endearing Romantic Jaunt Olivier Valencourt, the conte de Chaumenay has a letter to deliver to his dead brother's lover. He is grieving and in pain from war injuries.The problem is he finds another woman living in her house raising the son of his brother, Etienne and his lover, Claudine Ardaunt. He is convinced she is a madwoman. She does nothing but lie to him. Jeanne Delancy is using the name Jeanne Henri. She is such a close friend to Claudine that she entrusted her with the care of her young son Alex. Claudine's lover, Etienne broke her heart when he left her. She thinks this man is Claudine's lover because his name is Valencourt. She tells the stranger that Alex is her son and sends him away but she is worried he can see the boy is his because he looks so much like him. Olivier decides to follow her to see if she will lead him to Claudine. She is so beautiful that he can't control his thoughts and finds he is worried she is a low woman. He decides he needs to get Alex away from poverty and this horrible woman that frequents bars drawing pictures. She is poor and evidently selling her favors, which he would love to sample himself. He also sees he needs to ease the boy away from her gently. Olivier makes a plan to offer her employment as an artist to decorate his home. He must also see where their attraction leads. He convinces her that she can't turn down the money. Then he convinces her to bring Alex, her friend, Sylvie Barnett and her son Leo to chaperone and keep his lusts under control. The trip is a great adventure for the boys and Jeanne can't refuse the money because they were hungry. She finds that she is attracted to this rich aristocrat but she is an American hiding from her parents. They thought her crazy and wanted to institutionalize her. She is very afraid. She must keep Alex safe for Claudine's return. She still pretends to be Alex's mom so Olivier can't take him away from her care. She realizes he knows he has a better claim on the boy. She remains completely loyal to her friend throughout. Her poverty is so evident when she sees where Olivier lives that she realizes Alex might be better off with his own family, even though she loves the boy more than she cares to admit. She realizes Claudine might be dead. Alex has become her family and loves her too but misses his mom. This is such a sweet story of love and the personalities of these characters develop before your eyes. They become real to you and you do not want the story to end. They have flaws and fears but they overcome so much in a very turbulent time in France. I will not give any more of the story away but there is so much more. The supporting characters grow too so there are several stories within the story. I was amazed and hope there is another to follow this one soon. I gave the story Five Plus because it captivated me from the first page. The love scenes are so passionate and real. I also liked the fact that the hero was such a manly man. His story was just as tragic as Jeanne's but they outgrew the depression and despair to find their hopes and dreams. Great job Bess Greenfield for a story worth reading. Linda Hays-Gibbs

In many areas of our nation they need help Okla/Mo/ tornadoes Plz
Generosity and love is what they need and volunteers along with Prayer. Show you care!
I know the Red Cross could take donations. We must stick together, as a Nation helping where it is needed. The government of this Nation was never meant to pay for everything. It can only do so much and the rest is up to us.
We did not start a Free nation to become socialistic and feudal like Europe. We started a country where we can do what we want with our lives without interference. How can we have that if we just take and take? We must give too. John F Kennedy said "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country?"
