  1. Thank you so much for sharing Mae’s wonderful post today, Jaye! I was pretty excited about having her help me re-launch the #FabulousFridayGuestBlogger feature on my blog, and I think she did a great job. And if you haven’t read this and Book 1 of Mae’s Hode’s Hill series, I highly recommend them both. Excellent stories, told excellently–what more could anyone want? 🙂
