Change of plans

I was drafting a post on how I use Amazon star ratings while book shopping, but I’ve had to delay that in favor of work. My eyeballs and brain will be utterly exhausted by the end of the day.

Congratulations to Jaci Burton for making the USA Today bestseller list with Changing the Game! I love love … Read More »
