"Amazon does NOT always follow the lowest price. I managed to get iUniverse (the publisher) to drop the price of Tourist Trap to $4.99 early in 2013 because I feel this is reasonable for an unknown fiction writer--which I feel should be…"
"Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is 200 years old this year, and still a wonderful read. It's spawned lots of derivative works, and I reviewed one of them today: Mr. Darcy's Diary, by Amanda Grange. A very enjoyable read for those of…"
"I used characters and background from my books for A to Z Challenge posts this month, and today's is Wif, who in my SF world is the currant Guardian of Earth. Not the aliens seen talking to the president in the sensational press, those are…"
"What with my lifelong learning classes I haven't been very regular about posting here, but I've kept up with the A to Z Challenge, as well as some regular posts (weather, quotes, Jarn's Journal and Sunday Snippets.) Today on A to Z I…"
"Have a double again today. First my A to Z Challenge, where R is Roi Laian, the main protagonist of all my novels, as a youngster. Second is a quick weather observation: the snow is finally melting, and Houston, we have puddles!"
"Haven't had time to post for the last week, but I've had an A to Z post every day introducing my characters. Today I broke the pattern a little with my Q blog on Query letters, but I also had a second blog with my regular Friday feature,…"
"I haven't been able to keep up with listing my posts here lately, but I've been posting one and two times a day during the A to Z Challenge. My theme is characters (telling their own stories) and background from my books. Today Jarn, the…"

Hi, Sue Ann -- I don't know if this remotely answers your WordPress question, but I'm wondering, when you're asked for your identity to leave a comment, if you need to leave your WordPress user name (i.e., not the name of the blog). Or are you doing that (i.e. and I'm misunderstanding you)? I ran into a similar problem, but for me the reason is that I'm using wordpress.org (so even though I have a WordPress site, I'm not recognized in the .com paradigm). I work around it by using a non-WordPress identity. So much to figure out!
Hi Sue Ann, I don't know if you added me to your blog roll. My blog is new and I don't have a roll yet, but will soon! I am at www.healnowandforever.net. It is a spiritual and inspirational blog! Thanks, love reading about your journey! Love, Jodi
