In addition to his cover design competition once a month (check out the entries and winners for November!), his blog is an awesome resource for all things publishing. IBGW happens to be one of the businesses listed. Go us! Getting to the point, he's recently released the new book I'm gonna tell you all about now.

Play nice and have fun. If you're a jerk, I won't publish your comment. My blog. My rules. Thanks for taking the time to chat at me!
