This week I’m doing a lot of ghostwriting (peppers! Celiac disease! change management! and tons of other topics) that I cannot share with you, but I’m also doing a bunch of really fun dating site pieces. I wanted to invite you to come check out klaT’s dating websites, where you can chat with singles and find restaurants, parks, bars and lots of other places to meet singles in your area. I’ll be adding more resources regularly so be sure to check them out and leave reviews of any that you’ve visited. Feel free to post about singles resources in your area, too!
Just visit the klaT! main page and scroll down to the bottom. Beneath the Site Directory you’ll see a bunch of singles resources. Find the one closest to you and begin connecting! Obviously St. Louis has a place in my heart, so you may find my own personal stories there. 😉
This week, I’m also working on not one but two books, and I will have three more out this year total if I get finished! My latest book, Falling for Fall, is available at my alter-ego’s website to the right of your screen (remember, adults only).
