I Submitted

Well, I did it! I submitted my second book to my editor, finally!  So, it’s a little later than Spring, but I do think I confessed to never sticking to my own self-imposed timelines.  I have to admit, that it is no less nerve wracking or intimidating to press that blasted ‘SEND’ button – evenContinue reading “I Submitted”
