Hi. Thanks for visiting my site! I'm glad you've liked the first chapter of F.A.I.R.I.E.S. and you are welcome to post a link. I must let you know though, it is a Christian book and from some of your links and content it may not be what you are expecting. Just wanted to give you a heads-up. You are welcome to visit me anytime.
