Fun Friday: Taking up the Reins

Yes! I’m back in the proverbial saddle. As in, I sent My One True Love off to the editor, and now I’m taking up the revision reins on a completed novel I wrote some time back. I’m keeping it under wraps for now, but today’s research foray offers a hint in the following, from Charles …
