Progress report January 2019

Book news.  We have a new publication date for Stars Beyond. It’s 22 October 2019* 20 January 2020. We’re looking forward to it. We have also seen the cover, which we can’t show you yet. Love it. The completed rewrite of Stars Beyond is due at the end of January.  Sherylyn has her headphones on,…

We survived pub day
