A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

Yes, that's a gif I want to put in my signature! Pebble becomes a huge snow boulder as it rolls down the hill. It must be out there somewhere. If you see it, send me a link.

Thanks.

I hope you have an understanding boss.

Thanks for the support.

One thing that keeps me posting is it's interesting to watch what happens as sales drive more sales. When I first started, I had no idea this was even possible. So I'm watching it as avidly as apparently you and others are.

I'm happy to be giving hope to others as well. Everyone can do this. Its just a matter of writing until it happens. (I think)

I nicked it off another forum, a long time ago. Its one of a few on my own site now so I can link to it. Where it came from originally, I've no idea.

I believe this is what the dancing banana is from:

36 on Day 25.

The boost into the 30 range seems to be holding in the midweek time zone.
