Awesome cover. Dark and appealing story. Another book I must add to my buy list.

It was coolio.Coolerific.Coolio-coolerific.
That's enough said. The book speaks for itself.

I only said ten because there was no 11!
I never wanted to put this book. Unfortunately, I attend a Catholic school, so this had to be a "Home" book!

This novel is an incredible walk through the science fiction realm, and totally plausible. Ms. Druga-Marchetti is an expert storyteller and her words will keep you on the edge of your seet and enthralled. I expect more from this author and I will be watching with a great deal of anticpation.
See ye in Baltimore, m' lady! You are a talent and a find!!!

YES! I've been waiting for this one. I was privledged to hear Ms. Druga-Marchetti read an exerpt from this novel at a forum in Pittsburgh. CHILLS! The concept is not so farfetched as it seems; the shroud of Turin could contain DNA!
Looking forward to reading this, and getting my copy signed in Baltimore!

I have to admit this one is well written. I am shocked that they did not take it. I did not send any of mine to them because well you will see why when you go through "Room For One More" and "Vein Puppetry" which are the two of the more maleviolent pieces on there but there are some really dark and nasty little ones on there and each one has its own nasty little personality. This is a strong story as well -- thank you for writing it.

Your story was "all that", I can relate very well in this short story as well as what I got from it. It's funny how God and faith sometimes go hand in glove. I recently loss my Dad. And I too had a very, very, unconventional Dad. And just as you, I watched all of his friends and associates look at him for the last viewing, and watched each one of them "compare" notes on all the funny and crazy things my dad did. He too was quite a character. I just met you, and I want to thank you for sharing this short story, and don't ever stop writing from your "HEART". Thanks, Rozie

Karla has been talking about this poem ever since she read it; had to check it out. She is right. An awesome tribute to finding a hero to save damsels in distress. Congratulations! BRAVA!
(((HUGS))) and much love, Karen Lynn in Texas. :D
Now: does he have a couple of brothers to share with Karla and myself? *grins*

Really an inspirational work and a lovely tribute to someone you love.
Enjoyed, and many more happinesses.
Heroes (Poetry) - 2/8/2006 5:22:32 AM
Congratulations on finding your hero and for penning this awesome tribute. So many outstanding lines; so much love in your words. Excellent!
My favorite lines:
"I now write for the love of the word
He inspires me to write so I can create heroes like him, not heroes instead of him
And in this real life, should I now ever be the damsel in distress
I'd have no fear. I know and sleep well because...
a hero is near."
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Jake shared this poem last night at our writer's group, and it nearly brought tears to everyone's eyes. I had the honor of being invited to her wedding reception this past weekend (February 4, 2006), and this poem truly captures the happiness she feels toward her new husband, Chuck. Great poem, great inspiration. :)

Now all someone needs to do is invent some water undies. Then everybody can have a butt like J.Lo.

That has to be one of the greatest thing one can do for themselves...if they really feel the need to do so. It is more important for a woman to feel that good about themselves by doing whatever it takes short of surgery. Beautiful story in this write.
FATE (Poetry) - 7/19/2003 9:51:51 AM
Fantastic write, deeply insightful, with a wonderfully rewarding ending (or should I say "beginning")!!
FATE (Poetry) - 6/14/2003 6:58:37 PM
Jaqueline, this is a very upbeat statement of hope and the ability of one to come back and live the life they create. It can be done, as you obviously know. When it isn't done, serial killers can be created, too. Please read my Long Gone Love, Willow, Old Souls and Journey. Also my story, very short- The One That Got Away. Give me some feedback, please. You will enjoy them, I promise you. Thanks- Jerry

the environ of a child has a lot to do with its developement...
FATE (Poetry) - 6/11/2003 12:44:23 PM
I'm glad these two people found each other ... fate was kind!
FATE (Poetry) - 6/11/2003 12:23:46 PM
this started out so sad, but wound up so hopeful...well done
"...you were doomed, you know
to meet me
to be loved unconditionally
wanted, needed and appreciated for who you are
never to look back on what was, but on what will be
and without a doubt...
spend the rest of your life with me"
(((HUGS))) and love,
*although i'm not a bastard child, i've felt those feelings myself...doomed to be a failure, having to prove myself again and again to a family that doesn't appreciate me for who i am--this touched my soul, and will be added to my library to read again and again*
