    Hi there William,
    Thanks so much for stopping by. Are you referring to the children’s blog at Picture Book Depot or this one? Doesn’t really matter, either way, I’m thankful for your kind words.

    If you’re leaving a comment in order to receive my last copies of the two I Say You Say books, you’re in luck, no one else has claimed them. But I can’t really tell by your comment whether you just like the site or you want the books. If you do, please send another email to this site with your address and zip code. I WON’T PRINT YOUR PERSONAL INFO ON THIS SITE, so you don’t have to worry about that.

    By the way, I just checked out your website. Your books are nice. Please consider publishing your book cover on Picture Book Depot. At no charge, I can post your picture book cover(s) on Picture Book Depot’s bookshelf so that my visitors can find your site and your books.

    Have a great evening.
