My To Do List for Avenue Arcana

  • Free reads on the site
  • Republish A Case Of Wrath
  • Complete the second draft of “The Widow’s Tale”
  • Begin posting on my YouTube site

Starting Anew

Needless to say, this past year, 2020, has been one for the books. (If that books was Dante’s Inferno!)

After much thought and some initial preparation, I’ve now put this site into place as the central, go-to location for all of my creative works.

In the coming year, I fully expect to produce at least one new novel, new photography, at least one new podcast and begin working on video reviews on the Avenue Arcana YouTube page. (More to come on that!)

For now, I want to wish you all a wonderful New Year and I hope it will be all that we need it to be after all the world has been through this past year.

Peace and creativity!
