I’ve known for a while, something was, not right with my manuscript. I had edited and read, reread, I’d added and changed the atmosphere as well as descriptions and inner thoughts of the characters. It didn’t matter what I did, I couldn’t get that sparkle, my characters just felt wrong. So, I walked away for a […]

A Beagle Update

May 10, 2016 hollie8985 What's happening in my life

During October, Jessica Faust, at Bookends Literacy Agency started the […]
