Top Ten Tuesday: Authors Who Have a Fun Social Media Presence

This week's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, was a little difficult for me because I don't follow that many authors on Twitter. I mostly follow fellow bloggers and reviewers, but there are a few authors whose tweets I adore so much they managed to make the cut. Unfortunately, one author that… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Authors Who Have a Fun Social Media Presence

It seems to be slowly waning, but lordy there was a point there where I was ready to offer my first born in exchange for some relief.
