  1. I know you don't expect comments here, but while I'm at it, I may as well go for the gusto, eh? You do a good news article, precise and information and I wholeheartedly thank you for mentioning my stuff. Much appreciated, too! Sheri

  2. Dear Sheri,

    I really do appreciate input on this column. I want people to know that it is an avenue for people to get information out to readers at Whispers. I know the print magazines that advertise here have received submissions from contributors. It is my goal that we reach beyond to provide writers opportunities and connect people in ways beyond the site. Thank you for your ad and your support.


  3. Welcome to all new comers to this column. I am yet to be a contributor other than being grateful for you all and especially to you Karen for your additional opportunities through this column. Hopefully I will someday be able to advertise a book of my own. :) As for now I am glad to know where I can come both to purchase and to advertise. A true blessing.
    Love, Charlene
