Hello readers! What a good few months it's been!

That post is … Continue reading The Future of Pick a Card, and More on Alice in the Palace of Spades — Out now!
There is no way back from Wonderland—or so they claim.Not when the only door leading to my world is broken, and the magic of Wonderland has been thrown out of order. The magic itself relies on the clock at the center of Wonderland; but with the clock broken, my home in a state of disarray, … Continue reading Alice In the City of Diamonds is coming January 21st!
