Announcement | June 2020

Hello, everyone!

Not really a book/writing-related post, but an announcement: I’ve been absent for a while, but I’m back in June! What with?

Two (for now) book reviews, several book tours, plenty of giveaways, the return of the Writing Wednesdays series… So, yeah: what you usually find around here.

Oh, and I actually have something for you before then: a writing prompt is coming up on Wednesday (May 27) and a book blitz – excerpt and giveaway included – on Friday.

Keep healthy! 💙

A Personal Announcement and on Updates

About a week and a half ago, my grandfather got really sick. We took him to the ER, but he wasn’t getting better and today, he passed away. I’m sorry, but I’m in no state to be writing right now so for the next week or so, there will be no updates on Patreon or on Wattpad. I have a couple of pre-written posts that will go up on the blog, but that’s about it.

Anyway, today’s announcement doesn’t have to do with my blog. It has to do with an online event, and more specifically, a Wattpad online event.
