Big announcement: We’re shifting our focus

July 15, 2012

Dear friends, writers, and fellow CLMP members,

To my fellow CLMP members, if I can help you with Facebook page “likes,” Twitter “retweets,” or blog links, just let me know. I’m also available on LinkedIn.

All the best for your continued writing and publishing success,
