It's finally summer. Hooray. Okay, this is the thing, I'm ticked off so you're going to hear about it. Seems fair. Good chance I'm not the only one annoyed so feel free to be pissed right along with me! :)Pet peeve 1: Blogs by non-writers telling people how to write a book and stating shit … Continue reading Hot Child in the City

I heard back from my new beta readers and dealt with the raised points and enjoyed the fabulous … Continue reading Now what?
