The Sandmann's Journal Vol. 6

Published on February 20th, 2020, this book is my tenth publication. A unique feature on this edition is where the cover art shows at the Berlin Wall in Germany. Most of these entries come from my most recent blog, where I have deciphered many of the circumstances that have led to heated debates on social media. You can find such an example in my rendition of today's dating experience. Some segments speak of my support for women, LGBTQ + and law enforcement."
