Imagine this…

by Rebecca

I was recently a part of an author’s panel discussion that took place in Asheville, North Carolina, at a lovely independent bookstore called Malaprop’s Bookstore & Cafe.This was an event that I had put together, after a failed singular attempt earlier in the year, when I was informed by the Events Coordinator that Malaprop’s was […]

Own up, baby. Own up.

I hate to sound like a broken record. But every day, literally every day, new developments come to my attention, and I feel the need to comment on these developments.I am referring, of course, to being a newly published author.
