If you’re a writer, an illustrator or just someone who loves a good yarn, the Book Reviews and Interviews on GSB is very exciting. It’s where you’ll find reading recommendations, successful case studies and behind-the-scenes insights.
This is meant to showcase the type of writing that makes a great story. It’s where we can celebrate the best artwork in books. It’s also about making people aware of what other really interesting and creative people are doing!
