    Ms. Rusch,

    Your Free Fiction Monday layout got all weird again this week. It hasn’t been off like this for so long (maybe a year ago?) Fonts have changed, spacing is off, and portions overlap, making it much more difficult to read.

    Please go back to the way you’ve had it. I have an android smartphone and like these as bedtime stories.

    BTW recently finished the Protectors and await the next Diving novel. And thanks for putting together the Familiarity collection–love the kitties!
