I recently found someone who could create a map for the worlds my books are in. It's pricey. Not audio book pricey, but still pricey. Do you as a reader look at them?

With how crazy the world is at this moment, I wanted to celebrate even a small victory. So here it goes.... Woot! I pdf'ed Relic 2 up last night and sent it to the Beta readers.
