Keeping it Together
I had talked about separating No Promises Large Enough, the sequel to Headless, into two books. I am not doing this. There will still be Part 1 and Part 2 inside, but it will be one book. Ultimately what made the decision for me was the fact that this “episode” of the story does not…
