We’re skipping YAmondAY once again, because the release week for Wicked Sense ended up being longer than seven days. I might rename it “The Longest Week,” as if it were an old World War II-movie. Anyway, the “week” will wrap up on Wednesday Sep 19th, with the Goodreads Giveaway (1,000 entries and counting!) … Continue reading
