Carina Press Spotlight :: RWA 2012

Carina Press did an informative session about the history of the brand, and then had some fun -- letting attendees decide the covers of a couple of books. It was great to see how people reacted to the different options, and why. I'm so excited to see how readers react to the BDSM trilogy from Linda Aicher coming out in November. It's scalding hot. Now for the Carina basics ::
