Last Thursday, I left you all hanging with the promise of more from my notes on Paranormal Chat from the 2016 RWA National Convention. The speakers were Heather Graham, Nalini Singh, and Rebecca Zanetti. Sadly, my notes aren’t clear on who said what most of the time. But let’s just jump in, shall we? Read the rest of this entry »
