Book Review: Dark Hollows

Hey, everyone. I've been working toward wheedling down my TBR list. Okay, so that's laughable, but I've only purchased six books this month. (So far.) We won't talk about my Net Galley list.

The Dare #WIPWednesday

Hey y’all. It’s time for another WIP Wednesday and this time I’m sharing from a work in progress. I mentioned in the intro post for WIP Wednesday that I’m working on a book of short stories.
