Here's a wheel, and it's a very nice colourful wheel. It describes human emotions. Now, if we add a human emotion to a smile, we might very well be moving in the right direction. However, I think we have to bear in mind that a picture paints a thousand words. If a reader can't picture what type of smile it is, then the descriptor is not going to be very helpful. For instance, we might be able to picture a 'sleepy', 'playful', 'serene', or 'bored' smile, but what does a 'faithful' or 'stimulating' smile look like?

Lawrence Kelter (The Death of Red Rocket and the Bright Blue Light);
Jenny Milchman (Mother May I);
Rick Murcer (The Pier); and
Rebecca Stroud (Amelia's Island).
Now, anyone in their right mind would think that was more than enough, but . . . come closer. We've included four full books. I know, I know - you couldn't dream up something like that, could you? Me, myself and I have included Footprints of the Dead, which is one of my very best and . . . come closer - I'm writing the second in the series Whispers of the Dead (Tom Gabriel 2) now, and it'll be published during the first week in September. Also, and as well as - three of those other four brilliant bestselling authors have included a full book as well:
Now, if that isn't the best offer you've had while we've been sitting in this lifeboat wondering where our next meal is coming from, I'll eat all my vegetables up!
