C.D. Sweitzer C.D. Sweitzer's blog:
Among the challenges of finishing a novel set roughly in the present time, but written and revised over a period of 20 years or so was the sudden appearance of anachronisms.

Pro Bono was sort of my first "real book." I had already done The Table of Truth before then, and had even printed a picture book of my movie Stolen Souls. But Pro Bono was the first book that I really promoted and distributed. It's where I learned how to do everything. Thus, I got a lot of thing... Read more of this blog post »
