The May issue of Indie Writers Monthly should be free by now. You can download it (and read my latest short story) HERE.

Have a good weekend, and I'll see you on Monday.

Cool, glad you are using the Blogger comment box again.
Next time I yawn around someone who's boring, I'll just tell them I'm cooling my brain.

Hi Alex, yes, Blogger comments work much better than the Google system. I should have switched back a long time ago!
