Createspace and KDP to merge

  Well . . . Frak. Createspace is getting eaten by KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing).   Technically this shouldn’t be a big deal, and hopefully everything goes smoothly. In the mean time, you can do a few things to make sure the process doesn’t turn into a Frat house on a 5-day bender:   Create […]

#IGAuthorLifeJan Day 27 The new Beauty & the Beast series from Sarah Maas . . . OMG. It’s the size of a Nynex, but I read it cover to cover in a DAY. Stayed up to 3am. SOOOOOO good. The second book (A Court of Mist and Fury) was even better than the first.
