Get the t-shirt: Tea... It's just not coffee

Runnerup!

It’s not first place, but CLOUD FORTRESS took a solid second place in Kobo’s Best Indie Book Cover Contest 2019. Congrats to RJ Blain for winning the top spot!

Thank you to everyone who voted and spread the word, and to Bonnie Donaghy for the amazing cover! Getting runnerup is a big honor, and a great way to start 2020!

In other news, I am now 39 for 39 on The Great Challenge’s weekly short stories—75% of the way to a year’s worth of weekly short stories!

“Tea… It’s just not coffee.”

From my 2014 book HOME SWEET ROAD, this little line remains one of my favorites.

And it’s not that I dislike tea. Tea is lovely. In its own way. It just isn’t coffee, and coffee is where my heart is. Feel the same way?
