Wow! Is it almost April already? Where is the time going? I have to admit that in my fantasies, I thought I would be most of the way to cured by now, since I’m spending the spring on medical leave. Alas, that is not the case. While I can certainly see signs of improvement, it’s […]Read more "Excerpt and Free ARC of New Work! Plus many more giveaways"
