And for a shameless plug she happened to review something I had a hand in. Tell Tale Kisses is reviewed . This book is still for sale and still benefiting youth sports. Because of the support we got from this community particularly we were able to revive a baseball league on the brink of financial ruin because of embezzlement. This year has begun with the league actually having money in the bank instead of a negative balance.

Tell Tale Kisses continues to be on the top ten list at Star Crossed Productions where you may purchase it <>
