Guest Post: Switching Gears with Karen Akins

When Amie invited me to contribute this guest post, my first question was, “Is there a particular topic you’d like me to write about?” She said it could be anything publishing-related…maybe the challenges of writing time travel.

(I haven’t eaten one since.) So I find it somewhat ironic that I’m now a science fiction author. […]
