News Week - 08/31/09
September guest-bloggers, I will ping those that expressed interest shortly, but please send me your article no later than September 12th (Saturday)! I will need time to schedule your article before I take off.
Article can be about anything book related. If you prefer a theme, you can write about a book that influenced you or how writing your book helped you grow and why. Thanks, everyone!
If you have it written, just send it on over. My email: rtlovejoy (at) yahoo (dot) com
