Go here to order your copy. Write a review and send it to thecomingofthetoads @ gmail dot com, and I’ll post it to the blog.
I love the name you chose for the book, end tatters. I imagine you worked in all the bits written on fly away post its that have lost their sticky part, and the obligatory cocktail napkin. Though in your case it would be the not so fancy donut & coffee napkin. I’m looking forward to my copy.
Love you lots.
