Another One Bites the Dust

      1 Comment on Another One Bites the Dust

If you spend any time within the self-publishing areas online, then you likely know that Pronoun has shut down. If you don’t, let me explain a little.

So, I released a cover a while back that was still tugging at me, saying “No, no, I need more, preciousssssss.”  (Yeah, I don’t just have characters telling me what to do — I have covers as well.)
