The first of the fall newsletters for the year went out yesterday, and you can catch up with it here and grab all the free goodies and deals included.

Malachai returns in The Willful Inheritor, but of course he does! (Coming soon!)
I'm visiting my family of origin for the first time in two years (thanks, plague), and I just wanted to share a few photos of some neat stuff! I assume this is a scouting troop project. A lake. The northeast has more marshy land than one would expect. Theoretically, I love a swamp. Glenn Ellis… Continue reading Some Sights from NH and MA
I was a real crankosaurus rex the other day, so I wanted to do a little self-indulgent and positive post about my career too. Here is that.
