I published another paperback!

It took the best part of a week, but with the help of the support team at Draft2Digital, I finally published the second paperback in the Twee Tales series. Twee Tales Too is now available on Amazon. I also created a mock-up in Photopea for today’s post illustration, and I saved the featured images for the next three plan/wrap-up posts.
