Hi Fellow Readers!
With the holidays rapidly approaching, take a break from all the prep and see what’s happening over at Shelf Pleasure. New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins pays a visit this week to discuss her latest novel and her unique writing process, which is particularly interesting as Hopkins is known for writing in free style verse. We also welcome C.E. Lawrence, author of the Lee Campbell thriller series, who explains why she carefully chooses the locales where she writes her stories (this is especially important when writing about serial killers!).
