My apologies, I am once again caught short by someone not coming through with their blog invite. I do believe I have my answer that this experiment didn't work and invites and spotlights are now going to be left in 2014. So as I struggled to come up with a blog post I think we'll go with the spotlighting me because isn't it all about me anyway? In case you didn't know, I'm not one to put things on sale, I'm writing to get paid and I already have one free book and one only 99 cents at all times. Get them before the sale ends tomorrow.

Just like others in Chicago a blind eye is a content eye until it’s all brought into sharp focus by her younger brother one late night. She hasn’t seen her brother in years and the last time she had she’d told him she never wanted to see him again so she knew it was desperation that led him to her door. Before, he’d flat out stolen from her but now he’s pleading for the money.
