And I hit a stall…

Firstly, we’re in our two week wait. So, to be honest, my heart hasn’t been in it all week, which has been hard for writing in general.

Updating for the #reissue

Glass Block was originally released in 2015, and spent two years or so on the market before the Alexandria Publishing Group closed.  When it closed, I used that as a sign that I needed to regroup.  I won’t go into all of the details of what happened, but people that follow my main blog @ […]
