Watching THE SWITCHING HOUR Being Printed!
It has been a few weeks since I had the wonderful experience of seeing my book being printed, so I thought I’d share it on here (now that I’ve calmed down and can collect some of my thoughts into a post!) I had been looking forward to the day for MONTHS. It felt like suchContinue reading “Watching THE SWITCHING HOUR Being Printed!”
