Freebie Fridays: More Than Twins; A Tale of Temperance

Freebie Fridays: More Than Twins; A Tale of Temperance

Just a couple of quick notes this week. First, I’ll be away next week, entertaining friends, so the blog will be silent.

The Mountain’s Price

The Mountain’s Price

This is the final installment in my Wandering Mountain’s series. If you need a refresher, it started with Child of the Plains and continued in Man of the Mountain, then again in Legends of Old. It picks up with Council of Silver and The Traitor’s Trial followed by Spirit of the Mountains. Here’s the story: …
