      1. Cool. Cant wait! I don’t have as much chance to catch up on my blog roll as much as I used to, so if I miss it, please feel free to drop me a link.


  1. Thanks for sharing this, Jessica.
    I am new to writing. And even though I don’t write fiction, this looks like a treasure chest full of great tips. I will definitely have to read your book a couple more times.
