Edits Edits Edits

I’ve been a little MIA around here, I know. Really, it’s the editing that’s to blame. Finishing Midnight (The Romany Outcasts, Book Three) was more extensive and exhausting than I thought it would be. I’ve spent the last three years working on this series, and now that it’s coming to an end, it was a […]

Well, I’m pretty impressed with myself, I have to say. I’m actually writing a blog post about 2015 on the 1st of January, 2016. Look at me, starting the year all organized. Yeah, I know…it’s only the first day. Little victories. 2015 was a really crazy year for me, like it probably was for you. […]
