My good friend Jennifer Brozek tagged me in this blog hop tour where writers answer a couple of questions about their writing: 1. What am I working on? 2. How does it differ from others of its genre? 3. Why do I write what I do? 4. How does my writing process work? What am I […]
So here are the results of the “Tell a Friend about Tears of Rage” Day. Thanks to everyone who either told some friends about the books, or picked them up. International bestsellers all around.
