A Final End-product!

The proper use of your time after you think you have finished writing your novel is of the utmost importance. Once it has been proofread, edited - oftentimes more than twice - then submitted to a publisher, patience surely maintains it virtuousity. I know. I just went through these motions. With that in mind, I am glad to share the finished project with…
