Hold Me Closer, Necromancer is both funny and creepy. Just the thought of disembodied heads has always bothered me, and this book has one as a character. It also has a despicably villainous villain, a werewolf girl, a couple of witches, and ghosts. However, Sam, though a young necromancer, is likable and sensible, just trying to do the right thing and keep his friends and family safe. The plot zips right along, and if you are into paranormal fiction at all, I think you will like it. (MHouse)
I am in a confusing mess with too many gmail accounts. I have a personal account, my firstname.lastname@example.org account, and an administrator account I have to use for Google Apps. I was relieved to discover that Google allows me to sign into more than one account at a time. This is an advanced feature, and Google wants to make sure you know what you are doing before you do it, but if you are tired of skating between accounts, you might give it a try.
Mrs. Schroeder suggests making labels rather than groups when trying to send out group email.
I use labels instead of groups. You can assign a label to any of your contacts. When you need to email that "group", click on Compose Mail. Where you would add in the email addresses, click on the "To". Where it says "My Contacts", click on the drop down arrow. Choose which label you need and Select All and then Done.
