Alumni Ralene Burke Celebrates First Year Anniversary of Bellanok

by Ralene Burke Happy Tuesday, everyone! It’s been so long since I’ve been a guest on here, and I miss being here. You all are amazing. These writers are amazing. And honestly I don’t know that I’d be where I am today if it weren’t for New Authors Fellowship. Why?   I met my critique […]

One Author’s Journey

One Author’s Journey
