One Down, Million to Go …

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Sometime over night, between June 27 and 28, I sold my first copy of “The Nice Guy”. I’m a little surprised that it took this long, as Bat Garrett is such a prominant character in “Lost Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch, book 3″. I think, as time goes by, more and more people will… Read more »

On a Roll (and trying not to slip on the butter)
