I've been so excited to buy it since you mentioned it at the FAB event - word of mouth is definitely the most earnest form of advertisement 💛

How about a surprise ? I saw a ton of misinformation on traditional publishing on a Facebook friend's post, and it's sticking in my craw. So: THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT TRADITIONAL PUBLISHING (AND ABOUT WHICH YOU MIGHT'VE BEEN MISINFORMED).
