I’ve been rather silent on this blog for a while, but I haven’t been inactive. If you want to see some of the results of my hiatus, go to my new website. Future blog posts will all be there. And ah, yeah, I’ve also dropped my pen name “Jacob Schriftman.”
As you might have noticed, there haven’t been any new posts in recent months. I’ve had a lot of work and other writing projects going on, so I’m taking a little hiatus from this blog at the moment.

Well, she’s certainly a beauty, and beautifully placed for a great photo.)
