Hello all!

In my spare time, although I haven’t been writing much on TCTG, I have been compiling some more poetry. I will be posting those up shortly, I hope!

Also, my wife and I found this crazy cool bookstore in downtown Portland! Here are a few pictures for you! If you are interested in checking out there website, you can do that HERE!

I have been working on a small sneak peak the second book in The Curious Tale of Gabrielle series and am hoping to get that up soon as well….so don’t abandon me for other, flashier blogs… *splashes water on face*…what we have is special and I can’t do this without you!! 

Besides, I like to think that I bring the funny….or just the incredibly awkward…

    1. That’s a good question Jeremy! I thought I’d linked it but I suppose not, so I’ll do that later today. Its called Carlson and Turner and it’s in downtown Portland Maine. They do have a website and I believe they ship books if your looking for a particular antique.


    1. Thnks for the question. I am fortunate enough to where I have a job that allows me to do some writing in my office when I don’t have other meetings and such. It is difficult to balance but strangely my ADHD helps with that because I will do a little of everything everyday to keep my mind occupied. I also find that I write better at night so that’s helps me get more writing done.

    2. I also have a habit of starting things and then inishing them a while later so a few of those books were ones that I had started last month or the month before and picked them back up in July to finish them.
