    Animals in stories is my Achilles’ heel, so when I saw the first Pets1 I immediately snapped it up. I’m so glad I did too. You’ve all come up with imaginative stories that I just love. Pets2 is just as awesome! I’ve found some terrific new author’s to love and you can never have too many of those. I hope there is a Pets3 in the future!
    Thank You for the contest! I would love this in print.

    Disappointed I missed the giveaway, BUT I loved Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2.

    • Alexisa says:

      What country/ time zone is this site using? I had to do a double take when I saw the time stamp said 11-10 3:58am. Thought I fell into a time warp again.
      5 hours ahead. Now I have to go look up time zones.

      • Hi Alexisa. Blog time is certainly different than my time. I’m guessing it’s probably based on Grenwich Mean Time, since it runs more than a half day ahead of my local time on the time stamp. Thanks for commenting. 🙂
