      Yes, it does make sense. ;) I’m not a writer, but I can definitely understand how having new readers could be a bit scary. ;)

    1. No, I haven't been able to translate my novella into a second language. =) Perhaps God will open that door one day, and, if so, I'll be eager to follow! Thank you for asking, Resenhas!
