The Big 50 Giveaway (for writers)

For my birthday the past several years I’ve tried to do a bit of a giveback to the writing community–meaning I harangue my author friends to help me give away a bunch of queries. This year, the birthday is bigger (*gulp* no specifics, but the number might be in the title!) and so I thought […]

April 2019 Book List

My April reading & audiobook listening habits were a bit varied–and kind of busy! I had a number of ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) to read for books that are/were about to be released.
