Reality Check: Canon’s See Impossible “Author” Ad

I have a very close friend who will often call or text me and request what he calls a “reality check.” He’ll then present me with some personal, professional, emotional, or psychological event he’s experienced or is experiencing and explain his reaction to and thoughts on that event.

Hey, kids. As you all know, yesterday I dropped the long-awaited finale of my Slingers Saga (which you can purchase via that link or by clicking here). I couldn’t be more pleased with the first day results of SAVAGE WEAPONS, which saw direct sales out-performing Amazon sales 40-to-1. That’s phenomenal.
