If you write stories for young readers, be it for fun or as … Continue reading “I Write MG/YA” author blog tag
Every day is somebody's birthday. In fact, once every 365 days, I have a birthday too. (You'll still have to guess when it is, though.) Chances are, today, a writer turned a year older, and nobody knew what to get them. (We can't help being eccentric people, and no thank you, we already have too … Continue reading Gifts for Writers
