SUBject Matter

Hi, everyone~ It seems like forever and a day since I've been over here at wordwranglers. I've been on my personal blog doing my first ever blog hop, that was fun, and on Inkslingers last Friday. But for the last month, we spotlighted some authors whose work we admire. Check them out for some great tips!

Today, because it's getting late and I'm running low on time, I'd just like to say it's about a month until both my books. Eep! How exciting! I just can't wait. I love how fast digital publishing moves.

I'm on a time crunch today, so will leave you with a call for submissions. I don't have any firsthand knowledge of these pubs, except Lyrical.  Just passing on info, folks.

  1. Good information, D'Ann. It's kinda good to be home here, isn't it, after the company leaves? Sure enjoyed them, but it's nice to put our feet up and eat popcorn.

  2. Thanks for the great info. I'll pass this on to my writer buddies!
