Sharing the things you want the world to know around the literary industry.
*Note: Although I wrote this for the one year anniversary of my website: http://janachantel.com/ I definitely think that the advice and the message still applies to all. I hope you all find this helpful.* As some of you may know the one year anniversary of my blog is this week (Wed. June 13th).
