Busy Day!

It’s been a busy day here at Twin Cedars, but I have managed to get a lot of work done on the next chapter of The House of Loki. Hopefully it will be ready to post soon, both here and on its fanfiction site. Stay tuned! Wishing you all sweet dreams tonight.

A Couple of Announcements

Hello all! I hope you are all healthy and happy during the Great Quarantine.

Just wanted to post a reminder that the newsletter is on hiatus this month, but it will return in August with more reading goodness!

Also, I need to announce a change to my social media contact information. As of 7/10/2020, I will no longer be on Twitter. The vitriol and hate that is allowed on that platform has become too much for me. It used to be a joy to log on every day, but now I dread it. The fun and joy has been drowned out. So I am turning my attention to more focused media. I will also be focusing more on this blog, which I admit I have neglected of late.

I have updated my contacts page with some new contact links, repeated here for your convenience:
