http://www.huffingtonpost.com/katie-hurley/theres-nothing-selfish-about-suicide_b_5672519.html I was scrolling through my Face Book page and I came across the above article.

Prequels, Work, and Perception

I was watching Perception last night and the episode was titled “Prologue.” At first, I thought it was an old episode, except all the episodes recently have been new.

The Neumarian Chronicles, Balance Review

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this novel. As the third part in the series, I wondered if it would be the conclusion or just another stepping stone.
