Why Whimsically Yours? Well, once upon a time I was a book blogger and that was the name of my book blog. This is a homage of sorts. If you know me from Twitter, you know that I like to keep things real and hopeful and I like to gush about my favorite books and shows and book events I’m going to/have gone to. I’ll be doing all of that, and maybe more, here in a format straight to your inbox.
Who is this for? Anyone, but really creative minds (which is kinda anyone as I feel all of us are creative in some ways). If you’re a professional writer, artist, etc. you’ll find this newsletter especially appealing. I’ll be talking both as a writer and book publishing professional about all the things. And I welcome questions here (leave a comment!), on Twitter, or via email.
