I know I got a couple of questions about the name I chose for the villainess in Dragon Noir.

Ellie didn’t come in with the coffeepot as she often did, and not for the first time I wondered… Read More Dragon Noir: snippet 9
You can find the other snippets here… First Marriage “I’d been told I’d die, after the elfshot. But hours turned into days turned into months… Mother was concerned about me, I’m sure.

I will have a cover done this weekend, aided by potential bad weather that will trap me in the house so I have to work… or fool around. But I think I’ll at least get the cover done!
