Weekly Roundup for July 3, 2021

Weekly Roundup

Happy Fourth of July to my American friends! Hope everyone has a fantastic and safe holiday.

I just finished the first (crappy) draft of the fifth book in the Ghost Oracle series. I finished it early in the week but decided to take a break so when I do get back to it, it will be with fresh-ish eyes. Hopefully next week. Then, the laborious editing process will begin. Truth be told, I really don’t mind editing – I find it rather fun.

By the way, I also send out this weekly round-up list each week to my newsletter. So if you wish to receive my weekly roundup in your email inbox each week, you can subscribe HERE.

So on to the roundup.
