I am taking the rest of the year off to have fun for the holidays. When I return after the first of January I’ll start serializing a new novella A Night in a Bell Tower/ A Life in the Country. It’s my version of Hunchback of Notre Dame with special emphasis on how we treat people because of their appearance. In the meantime, you may go through the archives to catch up on my other writing. Since this is the season of giving, I’d appreciated any donations to defray the costs of maintaining my blog. Thank you to my loyal readers, and I wish you happiness in the new year.
