That’s when I take pity. I can even pity an entire country; take Belgium, for example, with its higgledy-piggledy houses,...

Today, five days after the book launch, we met an important milestone. Our crowdfunding campaign has reached the 30% mark! Crowdfunding? What? Yes, now you can know the truth. This whole writing-a-novel ploy is all about the musical. You may have noticed that the ebook is easy to get, but if you...
