• Beaumont and Beasley: Big Announcement! (and Other News)


    I have a terrible confession to make. I am going to fail Camp NaNoWriMo. I may as well admit it; the handwriting is on the wall. My downfall approaches. (more…)

  • Doctor Who: “Smile” Review

  • Some Quick News


    This isn’t going to be a long post; I just wanted to update my followers on a couple of things.
