I got a two-star review on Goodreads. It didn’t have any text attached to it. So I don’t know what exactly the person who read my book (I do hope that they actually read the book) didn’t like about it, or what they found wrong with it. It felt strange.

Again. I keep trying to do everything right, but I never succeed.” Of course I don’t. … Continue reading The choices we make

I have to admit, I have never been good … Continue reading Her Majesty Consistency
