Social Writer: Pinterest

I’ve talked in the past about how Pinterest can help authors with plotting, but Pinterest can do a lot more for authors. Since deciding to publish The Assassin under a pen name, I’ve created a new social media account for Laura Teagan on every platform. Let me be honest, for the Ginger & Co. brand, […]
