I spent the day at my sister’s house, hanging out with her and her boys and working with her on the final version of my book cover. It’s gonna look so great, y’all!

Raise your hand if you almost entirely forgot to blog today! Just me? XD What have I been doing instead?

So… I finished the first draft of “Legend” last week!!! 😀 It came out around 14k words (just slightly longer than The Twin Arrows), but I anticipate that changing since I have a few scenes to cut and a couple others to extend.
