Month: October 2017

All Change

Okay, there’s no avoiding the inevitable. With this being the last day of October, NaNoWriMo begins tomorrow. I have my official site blurb all edited and uploaded, there’s a book cover made and we are ready to roll. Starting tomorrow I’ll be doing some changes to this site, all in line […]
