Note: This title was actually release June 19th. It was originally supposed to be a July release and my eyes played tricks on me. Since this was posted and send to the feeds already I will leave it as the feature, let’s just admire its already released beauty! 😉
When Heather’s not writing, dressing up, dancing and reading, she’s answering email, which she LOVES to get. You can email Heather by using the contact form on the right. But before you do, make sure you check the FAQ to see if your question has been answered there. Unfortunately, Heather cannot respond to all emails, as doing so would take up valuable writing time (and we wouldn’t want that, would we?), but you can always reach her by commenting on her blog or her Facebook, or by following her on Twitter.
