Do I have a PLOT or a STORY?

I had very much intended to launch Book 3 of the Songbird saga this spring.  As you may have noticed…that didn’t happen. There’s a reason for that, and I’ll tell you why. It has much to do with the title of this BlogPost. I started work on TOOTH & CLAW while I was still prepping…
