Today we have a sneak peek from author Emma Meade’s new paranormal novel: Under the Desert Moon.
Seventeen-year-old Erin Harris spends her time daydreaming, hoping to escape her small town life in Copperfield, Arizona.

Though I will say that it helps. 😉 Continue reading “Top d20 Signs You May Be An Epic Fantasy Writer”
