There's a few of these I really liked so I may repurpose them for something else in the future.

Gardinel's almost gone forever

We have around 30 copies left of the book, going down from 100 in just a weeks time! wow

If you like haunted houses, and spooky stories, and supporting artists you like, consider getting one before they are gone forever and you are haunted with the ghost of regret.
