Mi Amore on Every Day Fiction One of my published flash fictions pieces.
If you want to check out a dance videos from a ballroom comp.: A crazy QuickStep show number. Not happy with the beginning, but it smooths out as we got into in. My instructor is Matt Keller of DreamDance
This is a great flash fiction web site, started by a Bookcrosser. This was one of my earliest submissions, based on a scene from my soon-to-be-available novel, Dancing Between the Beats. Search for one entitled, Mr. Machismo.
This is my favorite wild release ; it just keeps traveling and this one
I've lost count, and so has BookCrossing, of the number of booksI've mailed out as RABCKS or as part of a Trade; my controlled-release stats above are not correct.

And, as far away as ... Portugal, Cyprus, the Netherlands, France, Russia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Argentina, Australia, Iran, New Zealand, China, Germany, Italy, SriLanka, Brazil, Finland, Uganda, India, Philippines
Books, BookCrossing & Me:
So what is it about BookCrossing I enjoy so much? There are so many bits and pieces:
I love the book club aspect of book rings, the altruistic facet of wild releases, the sharing part of RABCKS and trades, and of course the community feeling of the forums. I've made many online friends and I've been lucky to meet several of them in person. BookCrossing was my first introduction to "social media." I keep in touch with many BC friends now on Facebook.
Also, one of the joys of BookCrossing has been the discovery of new authors and book titles I might have otherwise left untried.
