      Wait – I won an ebook AND a signed copy?! Sweet! Thanks! 🙂 All those book title ideas were really good. I was kicking myself over a few of those, wondering why I didn’t think of them.


  2. Karen Clark

    Galactic Visionary Productions’ motto: “Why limit yourself to the Universe when galaxies await our arrival!” Just my sense of humor’s answer to Universal.
