Meaning behind the name...
Every author has their own "facet", their own color and brilliance, shine and shimmer, like a jewel or a diamond in the rough. Now is YOUR time to let your talents shine through!
Share a short sample (let's say 15 sentences - I'm so generous...you get one more line that last time!) of your clean/sweet/inspirational work-in-progress or published work. Make sure to post a buy link - I want others to find your work.
One last thing...Share this post! If you share this post then we all have our samples read. Easy, peasy, right?
