Links to All the #notRWA17 Threads!

I’m so sorry I haven’t posted this before now! The wonderful S.S. Jaxon gathered a list of all the #notRWA17 threads several days ago, but I was too distracted by a novella-in-progress to put the links on my blog right away. At long last, though, here they are!

Thank you again to all the presenters (and giveaway authors, commenters, and lurkers) who made our virtual conference so special. ♥
