Hello Library fans. I’m of two minds as I write this but only one school. You’ll get what I mean in a second.

A Saga Continues…

Greetings. I THINK I’ve responded to all emails. There’s a chance I haven’t. There’s 30K words of my new book due to my writing group on Sunday so naturally I’m blogging with you all instead.
