Thanks, Maggie! That is really sweet of you. No nose ring yet, but still mulling it over. :)

LOVE the podcast, I was

LOVE the podcast, I was curious if ya’ll ever considered doing a panel at Bookcon to talk about the podcasts and do like a Q&A with the audience? It would be something I would love to see especially at Bookcon which is more publisher driven than anything else


Hi, Katrina! Thanks for your comment -- I don't know that we'd considered Bookcon, actually! We'll check it out!
