These are some great sites to check out. Some are author friends; others are writers I’m just in awe of! This is by no means a complete list-that would wrap around the globe.
I’m also including publishing and fiction-writing links of interest.
If you’re looking for info on how to become an author yourself, I cannot recommend www.rwanational.org highly enough. And for great how-to tips and much more, see www.eharlequin.com.
