The Write Snark Store

I gave away an urban fantasy tote bag at the Deadline Dames last week and in the comments, readers talked about seeing the design on a T-shirt, etc.  It occurred to me that I haven’t pimped my store in forever!  This blog used to be called The Write Snark and I started it to go […]
