See Jane Publish: my new group blog

See Jane Publish

This month, I’m joining a relaunched group blog called See Jane Publish. We are eight romance writers standing at various viewpoints along the publishing path, and we thought we’d pool our knowledge — and our questions! — and share our journey.

I’ll be posting on the fourth Thursday of every month. You can scroll down the page (to below the author bios on the right-hand side) to subscribe to the blog via email.
