My PDF eBook Cross-Train Your Brain is still free and will remain so until I finish the next one, Defang Fear In All Its Disguises. So if you have not downloaded it yet, do so now.
I am turning Defang Fear into a larger work book but hope to get it ready to be published in the near future.. That means I am behind on my goal of publishing something every month. I am moving ahead although slower than I had hoped. Too lofty expectations.
Moreover, my computer crashed and although I hope to recover the data, that is taking a bit of time. So for now, I am even further behind. Lesson: Back up more often and on the cloud.
