    October Goals – 2019

    We are off and running right into Fall! I'm hoping things settle down a bit more this month so I can get back to writing finally! I'd like to get the following things accomplished: Finish edits on Pieces of the Past, book 1 in the Silver Shores paranormal mystery series. Publish Pieces of the Past.
