I’m working on a series of books and online classes for this site, so stay tuned. In the interim, here are some goodies for you to consider. Please note, these are Amazon affiliate links and proceeds keep this site rocking and rolling. I also highly recommend Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited subscription service, allowing you to “borrow” up to nine books a month for free. Many of these books are available on that service.
