    1. This is the first time I get disappointed from your new “post”! I couldn’t read much of any stories! All is like the introduction/ advertisement leading to paid subscriptions !

      • Paid subscriptions? Where? I’m sorry but I do this in my free time. I am launching a podcast – it too is FREE. I am trying to promote it. Is there a problem with me occasionally promoting a new activity designed for your future enjoyment? There is nothing paid on this site, the podcast is free… I really do not understand your message and if I sound a little irked well I am. This site is paid for in time and money by ME. Hosting alone is close to $250 a year. The endless hours I put it if they were charged at anything like a reasonable rate – thousands of dollars a year. All free to you. If I chose to occasionally promote a book or a podcast I think I should be able to. And if occasionally, I sell a book it helps defray the not inconsiderable costs of doing this. I note you read my books when I offer them for free. Have you ever purchased one? They too represent hours of my time. Again, I find your criticism rather irksome so apologies for the tone. Thanks for visiting the site and I hope you continue to enjoy it but I will post advertisements for other activities from time to time. Have you listened to the podcast? It is also FREE.
