As this difficult year comes to a close, we at Dead Darlings would like to thank everyone who brought light into our lives by making 2021 so great for readers and writers…from the helpful publicists to our talented bloggers to all the authors we interviewed who so graciously shared their insights and advice. We brought you award winners from big publishing houses, self-published debut authors, and everyone in between. Even a few authors who graduated from our very own Grub Street Novel Incubator program. We covered every genre of novel from middle-grade to YA fantasy, literary fiction to romantic comedy, historical fiction to mystery and crime thrillers. Truly, something for everyone. On top of that, we posted a slew of articles and essays on the craft of writing that we hope inspired you to keep going on your own writing project. Most of all, we’d like to thank you, our readers. We wouldn’t be here without you. Please keep reading!
