To everyone new here to the blog: Welcome! Every Saturday, l post links to some of the things I shared on social media over the past week that I thought were interesting. I’ll also include book news, cover reveals, and more goodies.
Not too much going on this week at Roger Central. I’m still plowing away on the edits for my hockey novel which I hope to have out within the next month. Then it’ll be on to finishing up my novel about the magicians. Oh, I didn’t tell you that I was writing a novel about magicians? Well, I am. I’ll chat more about that in an upcoming post.
If you enjoyed this post, feel free to share it with your friends, and family. I would really appreciate it.
Okay, on to this week’s roundup!
