And Kids Love Comics is looking for samples of work by people who make comics for kids. […]

    Can you help? I am looking for a German press to publish my novel. Would you be so kind as to make a suggestion, if you can? Thank you. Dorie LaRue

    Nice looking website, can I ask you what template you are running and how much it costs? I have been using free ones but can’t find one that I really like.

  6. Hi there, nice site with good info. I really like coming back here often. There’s only one thing that annoys me and that is the misfunctioning of comment posting. I usually get to 500 error page, and have to do the post twice.
