Hello, all! Just a reminder, I have a free read for you over at Wattpad. And also, I forgot to mention, I’ve got more freebies for you bookworms on Microcerpt. Both of the stories and more are available on Amazon, and will be included in the upcoming Spring new release. (The cover reveal is Friday!)
Two Green Chairs
