Just to Let You Know

Hi, everyone! I’ve been debating how to balance One Vignette with my author site, leahfergusonauthor.com. I want to keep my professional site, well, professional, of course, but since so many of you have been rooting for the writing stuff just as much as you want to hear about how my kid fell down the stairs and I refused to show you photos of his black eye (you did, right, want to know about that?), I figured that I could do this: When I blog about writing, I’ll mostly keep those posts on Leah Ferguson, Author.

I saw something about Kate Middleton readying the nursery in some palace or manor or what-have-you for her impending royal offspring, and didn’t think anything of it, mainly because Quinn was sprinkling pretzel Goldfish all over the floor of the car. But later…
