As an author new to the writing game completing and releasing The Lion's Mouth brought with it an interesting blend of emotion. With the first book I was excited to make my mark on the writing world. I kept my fingers crossed that it would be well-received...and it had.

With book two I became nervous prior to its r... Read more of this blog post »
