Happy June, everyone! Gosh, where is the time going? Seems like 2019 just started, and here it is June already.

The best I […]Read more "Get a Sneak Peek of the Cover for “Half a Dream”! Plus This Week’s Selection of Giveaways"

Happy 2019, everyone! How is it 2019 already? My 2019 is starting off well-ish, in part because I’m on medical leave. That’s not normally a positive, and I’d much rather *not* have to be on medical leave, but since I do, I might as well look on the bright side. And one of the bright […]Read more "Yin, Yang, and New Year’s Resolutions That Won’t be Kept (plus more free books!)"
With the coming New Year, as we say in Russian! I hope 2019 brings whatever it needs to bring for all of us.
