Tattoos and flaws and anorexia, oh my!

I’m thinking about flaws today. It’s one of the things that I’m having fun with as I go back and look at some of my backlist books. I’m not revising heavily, but it’s fun to be able to fix a few of the flaws that maybe made it through the copyediting/galley process. But what about… Read more »

Adventures in eBooking

Well, folks, my ebook journey kicked into high gear yesterday (can you say “formatting”) and although I’m hardly the first to blog about it, I also probably won’t be the last.
