I have started writing a new column over at SheWrites called "Countdown to Publication." I will post every Wednesday about the inside story as I prepare for the launch of Silver Sparrow. I just posted my first piece, which is Five Things I Wish I Had Known When I Published My First Book. And to give you a sense of how long ago that was, here is my very first author photo. Yes, it was that long ago. The post is up, and I invite you to go check out. And even leave a comment if you feel like it.
