I think it’s pretty universal that no matter how many times we’ve been burned by book adaptations, we’re still going to scream with excitement about a new one.

Character Spotlight: Shri

Character Spotlights were a weekly Wednesday series where I used to talk about characters from the novels I was working on or had already completed, but they kind of fell by the wayside, as these things do sometimes.
