Monthly Recap, July 2017

We did it! We “survived” another active month of blogging, publishing at least one post a day! That was the goal for this month… though an exhausting one, at that. In future I suppose the posting will be a little less frequent, to give everyone a sanity break. πŸ˜›

Before we begin, I have a very new, exciting announcement. You may have noticed that along the right sidebar of this Blog, there are a few new fancy widgets. I’ve created direct links to the TAODC series, and Olive’s Book Writing Advice Series. AND… you can now follow us via email! How cool is that?! Just enter your name and email, click “Follow,” and you’ll be notified when new posts and CB store updates are published! HUZZAH! πŸ˜€

Now, without further ado, here is a recap of all the posts that have been published this month. Most of the series below are new, and still ongoing.

We’ve written advice on how to participate in Arts Festivals
