    Hi James!

    I’m so happy you’ve got your own cozy place where I can come to visit once in a while.

    I’ve missed your wonderful stories.

    James, I’d like to get in touch with you about the stories for the Lost Children Challenge. There is a contact form on my blog http://www.pluckyoutoo.com so neither of us has to post their email address publicly.
    Could you drop me a line there?
    Thank you.
    -Thomas Pluck
