I learned more than three things from Melissa Brayden at #gcls2015 – now to put them to work! Plus, here’s the current opening of Captain of Industry I read at the Con.
Stepping Stone reviewed at Dear Author. They seemed to like it.
Today’s the day! Stepping Stone is releasing from Bella Books and is on its way to readers everywhere.
