A Writer’s Interview on the Self-Publishing Experience: Just Write the Damn Thing!
by Amy Kampstra
An independent and voracious reader tends to be a better author. That may be partly why bonafide word addict, Sarah Winter, effortlessly weaved together a spicy, character-driven plot in her romance novel, Snowbound.
