Oh thank you God its the weekend!! One more day and I might have gone off the deep end.
So yesterday i blogged about that I might actually be on target but i thought maybe the rest of the world would interested in what editors are buying outside of what i write. So here’s a quick list to inform everyone. If anyone else has information about the good old world of publishing add your comments. I am building up my knowledge base, when i have time that is. As we speak I can hear my child starting to wake up, so much for getting a few minutes to write.
