As you might suspect, Tate's Hell is a bit less damned than our Captain thinks it might be, but I'll have to pick up on Discovery's adventures next weekend - and I've got a seriously good excuse. The next book in the Crimson Son Universe has a cover! I hope to do a reveal next … Continue reading To be continued…
This week, I want to step back into reality (which may or may not vary from the story of our intrepid Captain and crew...) We've been nomads for four months now. While we're still newbs, we've developed a few useful insights I'd like to share. First, this isn't a lifestyle for everyone. You need to … Continue reading Behind the Scenes of Discovery
