Hello everyone! Hope all of you are doing well. I’ve been through a few extremes lately. Last week I was on a beach and the weather was pushing eighty.

Also, the second chapter of The Newstead Project, uBook style is now out. Please feel free to share however you’d like.
 
 



Due to reader feedback, I’ve included a narrated version. Here is The Newstead Project, chapter one, narrated by Nathan  Moran. Enjoy.
 
 

Take care,
