After checking my DBP (Donna's Book Pub) folder where I store my "good stuff" to be read --- articles, blog posts, announcements, writing tips, and the like --- I found it chocked full of, how shall I put it, Oh, yeah--amazingly good stuff.
Most of it is too good to keep to myself, so I thought I would share with you all.
