Preparing for the Release of “Where There’s a FitzWILLiam Darcy, There’s a Way”

I know I have been excessively quiet regarding my upcoming JAFF release. In truth, I had hoped to have it ready by mid-August, but now it is looking closer to mid-September for its release, for I am doing a rewrite of the ending. However, I thought it time for a teaser, which you will find… more goodness …

Another year, another race, another reader

I recently went on a vacation with my sister. We’ve never done anything like this before, and I wish we had. It was great to spend that time with her and do things together.

That’s Right, it’s a Post About Privies

That’s Right, it’s a Post About Privies
