6. HOT author:

A big thank you to Alessandra, Deb, Care, Naida, Joanne, and Guatami for your comments. I used Random's number generator to pick a winner. Congratulations to Joanne! I'll be e-mailing you about your fabulous prize. :)

I am a huge Dune fan, and I think that's great your parents named you after Jessica in the book... take care :)
