Hey Robert, I wasn't aware that you are on Fictionaut! Cool! And welcome, so nice our paths cross here as well.

Cherise Wolas – Aug 15, 2010

Thanks Robert, for reading and the fav!

Robert James Russell – May 19, 2010

Thanks. I'm the same way - I'm all for digital publishing, but nothing beats a hardcopy. :)

Cherise Wolas – May 19, 2010

I have printed out LIZ to read in hard copy. I love that you posted a story this length. Of course people tend to bypass, but I love printing them out and reading them off-screen.

No problem, Bill. Like I said, quite enjoyed it. How long have you been on the site for?
