A Helping Hand for 2014

Wow, I can't believe it's our last Friday the 13th in 2013--where has the year gone????

Don't worry, we'll be back in January with more truths and dares and public humiliation. But as we move forward into a new year, we thought it might be fun to do something a little special for the 2014 Authors who are about to enter the madness of their debut year. We know how crazy and awesome and stressful the book-launching process can be, and we wanted to share one piece of advice we've learned through our own adventures and experiences.

So, inspired by THIS post, we give you: Thirteen Helping Hands!
