Could not agree more. Beth is such an amazing person--the success could not happen to anyone more deserving. And it feels like an honor to know her and be along for any part of her journey.

Beth rocks. I remember when I read the very first chapter, it was like almost six months ago now, and I was so impressed. I'd only been following her blog for a little while at the time, but I started to hit her up, asking for her help with query critiques on my blog when I did them.

She responded every time, and always made time to stop by and lend a hand. A NYT bestselling author, emailing little old me. Some things are right with the world people. Some things.

Beth rules.

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
