    Wonderful Blog!!! Erin is a very clever writer. We love to follow her writings and look forward to reading everything she comes up with. She can really hold your interest. I am an old man and Blackhawk Bay kept me on the edge of my seat until the end.

      Can I hire you as my permanent PR person? Thank you so much for the kind words!!

        My PR company is pretty busy, but I will see if we can fit you in. Writing like you do shouldn’t need expensive PR, just good word of mouth.
