One: I smelled autumn in the air today. It’s on the way here, and I’ve seen leaves changing color already. Two: Once again (and I’ve answered this so many times I’m sick of the question): I’ve explained time and again on Facebook, on this blog, on Twitter, in my newsletters, why my indie paperbacks are […]
