Book and Book Tour Updates

Hi everyone! I know I’ve been doing a bunch of writing lately and part of that was to make sure I made up for last week. One of my co-workers got fired for stealing cartons of cigarettes.

Oops, I did It Again (I Got a Job)

I’m working at another convenience store. Sadly I’m not making enough money on here or C4SS to live off of (though it’s not bad and I appreciate that money for sure). So I have to take up a 20+ hour part-time job in the meantime until I can figure something else. It’s just to pay…
