Real Life Procrastinator: Chronicle of a So-Called Adult

The new year is almost upon us, and I’ve neglected this blog for far too long.

My first blog for indie publisher Quirk Books was posted yesterday: It’s National Library Week, and even fictional characters need a place to check out books from time to time. Though it’s not always the case, fictional libraries tend to be magical; after all, they’re created by writers, and writers know the power of the written word. If they’re going to invent a repository for knowledge, then at the very least, it should…
