The weather is getting downright cold at my house and when the wind blows, my thoughts turn to snuggling up with a good romance novel and losing a few hours in the world the author has created. It also makes me want to create my own stories and dreams of publication, as well sugarplums, dance in my dreams.
This week we bring you some great insight that just might help your dream come true…
