I've neglected my blog for months. Too busy reading, writing, revising, and traveling. Oh right. And teaching. And now as I write, the sun shines warm, the garden is planted, school is out, and I have a need to let the denouement of my next novel simmer. So among my summer goals is to catch … Continue reading Salutations: The Penny Edition
