April Flipside Month
April is Flipside month on CataRomance. Go to the Cata Q&A Forum and
ask a few questions. Holly Jacobs is there right now and other
Flipside authors should be joining in. The two Flipside books
released this month are Stress and the City by Stephanie Rowe and
Wanted: An Interesting Life by Bev Katz Rosenbaum. Check out the
review of Stress and the City at CataRomance Reviews!

try the Guiltless Caesar Salad. Yummy!

Does anyone have any suggestions for beating spring fever? I'd sure
appreciate them!" If you can help Jessa, run to the Reader's Lounge
on the Forums and tell her what to do, quickly!
