Winter of the Wolf First Draft is Done!

It’s not pretty, but it’s done. Clocking in at 192,123 words, it’s my longest book yet. I’m hoping I can trim a little, though first reader has had no luck in identifying what can go. It’s all necessary because the

Changing Things Up. Again.

I swear, I’m not normally this flaky. People who know me in real life consider me stern and serious. I only say this because I’m pretty sure that no one who knows me in real life reads this blog unless
