***Closed to Queries***

I will not be accepting any queries in the month of July. Any I receive between now and August 1st will be deleted with no response and you will be blacklisted forever.

Just kidding. I’ll delete any queries I receive after today, and hope to hear from you in August!

    Sorry about deleted – slipped on the sidewalk and fluffed my lines. 😉

    Nice one by the way – have a great time!

    I love the "be back in five minutes" that are sometimes posted up on blogs too.
