The Cream Rises to the Top

Hop over to the Novelists, Inc. blog and read my “Mark Twain Didn’t Twitter” blog posted on October 15, 2010.  I’m sure that will be a popular one, especially since it follows right behind an industry professional’s blog whose job is to promote authors and their work. Once I’d finally…
