  1. Hey there Julie! I see that I’m mentioned in your author list (yay!), but The Unexpected List (part II of The List Trilogy) is missing on the 2013 book release list (boo!). Any way it can be added? While I’m at it….how about adding part I of the tril- The Life List it to your 52/52 list!? It’s a doozy!
    Thanks Gal! Great blog!!!!
