I write for the same reason people fall in love: because the soul needs to communicate with others. And as with love, writing is not a one-way street. Every writer is a reader, and every reader is a participant in writing. We create based on what we’ve learned from others, and when we read, we tr... Read more of this blog post »

I'd say it's good to go into this book blind, but only if you have no triggers. If you do, then check the reviews. Also, if you like your heroines v... Read more of this blog post »
