by Laura Orsini

Most authors in the Phoenix Publishing & Book Promotion Meetup are familiar with my tolerate/hate relationship with Amazon. To put it succinctly, I am not a big fan.

Here’s today’s inspiration: “The hardest part about writing a novel is finishing it.” I can attest to this, first hand. Please feel free to check in with me in a week to see how much progress I’ve made on Stan Finds Himself on the Other Side of the World. Gonna get it done before Labor Day. Really.

Finishing the novel
