    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.


    • jameslloyddavis · June 9, 2011

      Hi, Joani. Glad you stopped by. By all means visit when you can. I’m slowly getting the hang of all this, so I’ll be putting new things up from time to time.

  2. Thomas Pluck · September 8, 2011

    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

    Eileen Carlton is an old friend of mine, I used to write garden articles (& such!) when she was the editor for the Loudoun-Times Mirror. I have a novel I’m trying to get published, and she mentioned you might possibly be able to help. Tim O’Neil bugandfly@comcast.net Appreciate any assistance.
