We salute the hard work of our authors, editors and designers. The manuscript of my newest book for young adults and teens, “The Illuminiers” was completed during NaNoWriMo and is undergoing editing and preparation for release in January. This is always a painstaking process, yet so far, it has gone through some “test marketing” with great success!  My daughter...
