I mentioned previously how I took a big (for me) leap this summer by signing up to be on two different launch teams (I reviewed the first of those books, Holly Gerth's Fierce Hearted, here in case you missed it).

I'd heard of the Hitchcock movie, natch, but I don't recall ever having… Continue reading Book recs for writers: Rebecca – Daphne Du Maurier
