Next Book Projects

I’m working on three projects at the same time. I think it will be easier to do several books at once since they are all fairly far along in the process. Also, I tend to forget how to do something if it’s been a long time since I’ve done it.

The upcoming books are This ‘n’ That Poetry, Meow Poetry and a book on blogging ideas which I haven’t decided on a name for it, yet.
