First, my gratitude to two kind bloggers:
On December 10th, Richard Hughes (Writing and Living by Richard P. Hughes) posted a nice review of my book, The Fourth Wish,on his blog. You can read it here. So, belated thanks, Richard. And for readers of today's post, Richard has an interesting blog that includes articles about the writing journey, book reviews, and snippets of his own fiction. It's a spot worth visiting often.
Additionally, Ann Best mentioned my book on her December 10th post at her wonderful blog site. Thank you, Ann! Ann's memoir, In the Mirror has earned 24 five-star reviews at Amazon, and she has published two other books. You can learn more about them here:
If that wasn't enough, Richard included me on his December 3rd list of recipients for the Great Comments Award, a very nice award indeed: A condition of the award is to pass it on to the top 20 commenters on my blog. Well, that's very hard to sort out, as so many people do leave great comments, but here are 20 who come to mind:
Rosi Hollinbeck Joanna Marple
Rachna Chhabria Tanya Reimer
Richard Hughes Lauren Boyd
Carol Riggs Lydia Kang at The Word Is My Oyster
TGayer Julie Musil
Ann at Inkpots and Quills Kenda Turner at Words and Such
David Powers King Gary Gauthier at Literary Snippets

I hope you will visit their sites. You are in for a treat at each one.
Next, the Book Review:
When the Howard family moves from Denver, Colorado to Shreveport, Louisiana -- a military move because the father is in the Air Force -- their new home is a creepy old house with what turns out to be a mysterious garage. And it seems the former inhabitants of the house disappeared years ago with no explanation.
