    I follow you too, Nathan! :>

    I also follow Erin Morgenstern, Fredrik Backman, and Bette Lee Crosby. I have many writer friends who are working towards publication, so I follow them too to support them and just to get a fun view of what else goes on in their worlds when they’re not at with their manuscripts.
