I donâ€™t want to say â€œout with the old,â€ so letâ€™s just agree to welcome in the new.
Last week, I was The Next Big Thing! This week, Iâ€™m the last big thing.
The Next Big Thing is a a sort of â€œpay it forwardâ€ interview series providing readers with an ever-growing series of discussions about writers and their works. Â It offers an inside view of our process, our passions, our efforts to create our best work.
Author Debra Leigh Scott asked me to participate a few weeks ago. You can see my write-up about her interview here:
