Re: Any Dark Erotica Fans?

I was able to secure an option with an indy producer, but God knows what the other party has been up to. I can only hope that my letters did their job.

Re: Tick borne relapsing fever in Florida, U.S.

Re: Any Dark Erotica Fans?

Thanks so much, Claudia! LOL, although the woman on the cover does resemble me, it is a model. RR has some fantastic covers, and I'm very happy with the work they did for this book. The other two installments of the trilogy will be available in the coming months, and I also have a sci-fi space odyss...

Re: Contributing Factors

I think that the pathogens to which we are/have been exposed from our pets, as well as the vectors that can come with them, may contribute to co-infections that can complicate Bb infections, as well as "chronic" forms of bartonella, mycoplasma, salmonella, etc.
