Another Facebook meme, another blog post about female protagonists.
How is it that a month has passed since my last blog! Well, I've been busy putting A Wizard's Forge in book shows, picking up an award medal, and doing a partial preview release of A Wizard's Sacrifice on RoyalRoad.

Vic’s troubles and how she deals with them should inspire some rousing debate. Go chill the wine and prepare yourself with some cool intel to drop on your friends.
