Important Site Update ft. KJ Harrowick

Earlier this summer I put a commission in to fellow writer (well, she’s the published author!) to design a new site banner for this site’s rebranding. In the following weeks between real life family and work stuff, we threw out ideas, images, vectors and all things sparkly. I mean, just take a look at my…

Introducing a New Blog Series

As I’ve mentioned before, things are changing here on anotherhartmanauthor. Blog series have finished, so it’s time to begin a few new ones and see how they go.
