Happy weekend, everyone!

Allow me to remind you, once again, that our book, The Royal We, is out and about and very appropriate for your Nearly Summer Poolside Readings, if you haven’t picked it up. If you’re still on the fence, by the way, those first seven chapters are still free. And, elsewhere:
