As you all know, or maybe you don't, I've been writing a decent amount (for me) of short fiction lately.

Hey folks! I meant to have this post done Friday, but I didn't so here we are. As previously mentioned here, I went on vacation for two weeks in June. I've been back at work for a little over a week now and things are finally starting to settle enough for me to find time... Continue Reading →
