For Writers


Writerly Wednesdays here are dedicated to writers and readersIf you've published something awesome, shoot me an email with a blurb. If it's a good fit for my readers, we'll schedule you a feature date. I'll be shouting about awesome books, sharing new covers, or participating in book releases every week--and I'd love to share yours. 

As part of our features, we play the Truth or Lie game with giveaways and too much cheese. (Is there such a thing?) You can see an example of our regular fun HERESpots are filling up quickly, so schedule a date now by emailing 

For those of you looking for advise and encouragement, here are my meager contributions:
