Madeleine, as I understand it the cast are largely unknowns. Mary Kate Wills, who plays Lydia is on another webseries (don't know the name) but LBD is a low budget production so they weren't going to get big names. I actually like it better that way.

A little bit of both, MLE. If someone enjoyed a book and wants to share that information, it shouldn't matter that they happen to be an author as well. Yes there are some groups that engage in ratings-pumping, but I doubt they accomplish much. If the books they push are lacking in quality, the reade...

My best thing today is my latest hitting Amazon in paperback. Now I'm waiting for Barnes & Noble to pick it up. Not the first time I've been through this, but it's still nice. :D Here's a link if anyone wants to check it out. It's not HF, but it's getting good reviews so far. Link to book on Amazon ...
