Songbird News – 2nd May 2021

It’s been a while. The March 17th launch of Hunters came and went, so let’s take a look at the news… As I mentioned above, the Hunters launch happened. And as Borat would say… The pre-order for the ebook went great, and since then I’ve been selling something like a book every few days. It’s…

Inclusivity? Isn’t that how it’s supposed to be?

Those who are eagle-eyed may have noticed that I altered my Twitter profile this past week. I changed both my header and my little avatar picture. I felt it was something I should do in light of the issues going on in the #WritingCommunity with a series of revelations regarding male writers using a female…
