Blood, sweat and vampires

I wrote this article, based on my experience with writing and helping clients who want to write: So, You Want to Write a Book? And then, magically, I take no credit for how this happened, Anne Rice–yep, that Anne Rice– was made aware of my article and this happened:           And now,…
