New Release : Empty Room by Cortney Joseph

I can truly say that in recent months, my art has suffered greatly. However, in that suffering I managed to put together something special.

“Darkness” by Cortney Joseph

Scared As Hell.

At this point, the novel should be out and I should be letting it do whatever it will do, considering I'm self publishing. However; the thought that comes to mind each time I make up my mind to get back into re-writing and editing my debut is; what if it doesn't do shit? What if…
