I've set myself a grueling schedule of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for updates. It's Monday and I've updated. We'll see how long I can keep this up.

Looking at having a book cover designed? Cover Artist Scarlett Rugers answers the big questions on what to look for in a designer, how to create a compelling cover & the do's/don'ts of book covers!

She covers a lot, so I've broken them into two posts:

One Hundred Percent Lunar Boy is a weird science fiction tale set on the moon. But is it worth your time? Find out here: It is illegal to speak of the existence of the so-called fourth primary color.
