I want to help share with the announcement of Colleen’s new business (she never asked me to) because I’m not only so happy for her new venture, but because I can personally recommend her services. Colleen is a workaholic when it comes to her writing, poetry, and book reviews, but what some of you may not know, Colleen is amazing with techy stuff, backdoor blog nasties, and is a forever learner, always keeping up with what’s new in the publishing biz.
