The Southern Fanfiction Review

I am honored and touched. Sandy, from The Southern Fanfiction Review Blog, took the time to say a little something about "Made in the Shades" Click here to read the post. I feel so special that she has the confidence in me to review a WIP.

Thanks, Sandy!

I also snagged these pics from the blog, as they really do capture the essence of Edward in the latter chaps of "Made in the Shades"

*wipes drool*

This one is my favorite ^^

MAL has said this quite a few times, but I'd just like to say a HUGE thank you! 

She's almost at her goal, and it's because all of you have pulled out all the stops and made it happen. The generosity and kindness is astounding. Together, we can make a difference, and we HAVE made a difference. On a personal note, I've heard some people talk badly about the Twi-Fic-Fandom, and on some days I can too. But, this goes to show that we really do have some amazing people within it. I am touched and so happy Mal and Leo are that much closer to meeting, and having their HEA. 

I ONLY do HEAs because I'm a wimp, and this will be no different. I am dedicated and I strive to bring awareness to many of you! So, if you find my multiple posts to be bothersome, I apologize. . . just know, I'd do it for you. 

I'm not giving up, and neither is MAL! So let's get her to her goal! Woot Woot!
