And now 2020 is today. O.o. Start practicing writing it on papers … More 2019 in Review 😉

Today I… Did some final, minor edits on “The Night Archers”. Gawked over the full spread of my cover. Learned some formatting tips and tricks from my sister Perry Elisabeth over the phone. (Dropcaps are so cool! So is Perry.) Formatted. Almost bought an ice cream sandwich. Was saved by having no change on hand. … More A Phone Call with the Dropcap Ninja
It’s been a while since I’ve shared anything related to “The Night Archers”, so here’s an excerpt of what might be one of my favorite scenes. Gavynn and his archers are gearing up for action… (Insert obligatory this-is-not-the-final-draft warning here. 😀 ) A team of rebels rammed at the gates with a heavy log.
