Thursday is here. Have no fear though, tomorrow is Friday! And it just so happens I have some lite reading material to get you through the day. Today’s Blog Swap Tour post features Laurie Gardiner and her amazing story Retribution. When I read this story, I had to put down A Journey of Words for a few days to recover from its power. Here is Laurie’s interview, remember to check out her website and facebook page, as well as her incredible first novel, Tranquility.
