Time Flies When You're Listening To Finished Audio Fiction!

Issue #54 | 13 Sep 2023

I need your thoughts and prayers, faithful readers. My mother-in-law is in town. Yes, the struggle is real. (Nah, I'm kidding. I get along great with my mother-in-law. Always have!)

A quick update on the new website and newsletter: I'm making solid progress, but it's a process that I really don't want to rush, so I'm not going to. With luck, I'll have all the kinks ironed out next week. But if not... Not. Pushing it to the end of the month is probably a good idea.

Let's get into it, shall we?
