We’re back! Absolutely thrilled to finally be settling into our new living arrangments and finding our footing again. To those of you who have stuck around, thank you so much for your continued support.

To Our Readers

This month we will be trying out a new schedule to make space for book reviews and allow us to explore topics outside of just tips and tricks. This is a temporary schedule that will become permanent if the reception is positive. Any feedback is welcome.  Let’s Talk About it Tuesday will be replacing Tools, Tips & Tricks and will be posted every other Tuesday. It will be posted opposite the week of the MSQ which will keep it’s Wednesday spot.

Next Month

With the change of our writing schedule, we will be hitting on topics like the importance of libraries, a creatives curse and a couple book reviews of new and old authors.

Any suggestions or books for review are welcome!
