Friday Night Drabble Party!
Another Friday is upon us! Huzzah!
Y’all want some micro-fiction? I know you do! I’ll skip the promos this week. Hopefully, being the decent human beings that y’all are, you’ll click on one of the pics at the bottom of the page or perhaps check out the list of novels above. Because you are decent human beings. Decent. Human beings.
