Desert Island Books
Say waaaat? Awww yeah. It’s exactly what it sounds like. We interview a kickass author and find out what books they love rubbing on their faces, which books they feel have made them the writer they are today, how they write, what they write, what it’s like to be suddenly living the author dream, and all those kinds of glorious writerly things. It’s going to be so so so so so good.
