New Site

Until further notice, I’m ceasing updating this blog. All my attention will be on my new site http://www.JonRauthor.com which will focus on my current (and future) books along with the occasional blog post that relates more to the overall goals of my writing. Posts that fit that were transferred over from this blog as well, creating a much more individualistic approach on the new site. Thank you for following, and feel free to follow me there! 🙂

The “working title” persisted, and the book is officially called Take Back Home. Continue reading

Sometimes they are so obvious and simple you wonder why its not more common for other people to think of and why so many people fail to follow these obvious truths? This quote is my contribution. It’s something I always believed in but never had the words to describe it until it came to me one day.
