Building A Series Wiki Part Two

Last time, I talked about wanting to create a wiki containing the background information for my long-running Kormak series. I managed to write a thousand words without addressing how you do this.

Upcoming Releases

Last year was a quiet one for me, at least in terms of releases. This year is shaping up somewhat differently. The past couple of years left me sitting on a pile of manuscripts that needed licking into shape. These included 4 Kormak novels and one longer epic fantasy about wizards and dragons set in […]
