Ok – I am trying to get back into my groove- It’s amazing how much one’s health can slow things down. I had oral surgery a few weeks ago and have been having problems ever since. It’s been rough and has really destroyed my work ethic. last night was the worst. I went back today […]

Still struggling with a couple of comments not moving over to their correct pages- haven’t figured that yet. Other than that- we keep trudging along. Mind you this a rough… so there are grammar errors and spelling errors at times. When the books go to print this is all corrected

Everything should be fixed now. If you have a problem please let me know so we can fix it. Also let me know what browser it is on as well.  Yet the site has been scrubbed clean:)  

This has been a fun section to work on for me. It’s allowing me to look at the story more as a story than that of just a boy on a quest. We fixed the glitch-Sorry if you got redirected. Things are all clean on our end now- if you have any problems let me […]
