Took a little longer to put these together than I had hoped, but here we are finally. It’s a simple plan. Of course, simple doesn’t doesn’t mean easy. My 2018 writing goals: 1.

Here’s a little bit about the story… Centurion New planet, new problems Josu and his father trade up for a second chance […]
Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!
