Proof is in the Pudding

Most profoundly delayed

Circumstances outside my writing life have profoundly delayed further progress on the Reztap book.  I’ve also put into question my decision to solely go with an eBook distribution and marketing. I think I may have it in me to go the distance with a hard copy publisher.  I don’t want […]
