A Re-Release, Coming Soon!

Hey, all! So the second book in the Ashten Falls series is finally coming back to your favorite e-book retailers THIS SUMMER! Oh, and did I mention it’ll be available in paperback, too?! It definitely will be, a couple weeks after the e-book release. Woohoo!! While this book was released initially a couple years ago, I took it down and re-worked it the way I always wanted it to be. Sam is still growly as ever. Emma is strong and…

Cutting the Cord

Cutting the Cord

I did it. After years of of saying I’d do it, and a bunch of research, I cut the cord. I got rid of cable. I moved in October and when I did, I noticed my cable bill kept creeping up, a couple dollars every month. I had Spectrum. I hate Spectrum. But anyway, I was annoyed. I called a couple times and their retention specialist were not helpful, at all. In early March I did speak with someone who…
