Re: Non-fiction humor queries

Same general genre? Really? I like meeting my own kind. :) What is it that you write? I agree with that about needing humor in these times. The goal here is really just to make people laugh and if I can make money from doing it? Red letter day. Hopefully there are people out there like me that laugh...

Re: Ask Nathan

10 Grammar Fail points for me. I will definitely be giving all of this a lot of thought, ingesting lethal amounts of caffeine, and possibly querying you some time in the future.

Re: Non-fiction humor queries
