    No one wants to read your book, that's why you'll have to make them. Step one: Make it readable.


    Grammar, sentence structure, and spelling aren't sexy, but they are essential in grabbing your readers and holding on till the last page.

The Books and Buns Podcast

A fun, in-depth look at literary. The hosts are knowledgeable and entertaining!

Infectious is just that

I am a huge audiobook fan, so when I heard this podcast was going to be posting 2 chapters every day, I knew I wanted to tune in. Although I do love listening to books, I often find myself having a hard time getting into them. I keep listening HOPING I’ll eventually love it... however, I got hooked right away with Infectious! We are now half way through the book and honestly, my only complaint is ONLY getting 2 chapters each day. However, it is fun getting to look forward to new chapters each day!
