Writing a “Keeper”

christmas pam bill moveYou learn a lot about yourself and why you hold on to things when you move! We are downsizing significantly to a simplified #midlifeadventure home.

What are Influencers? by Jill Williamson

JillWilliamsonACFWHeadshotAn influencer is someone who dedicates themselves to helping spread the word about your book. You, or your publisher, compensate them by giving them a free copy of the novel.
