It’s been an exciting month for Heroine Training, as I celebrated my 2-year ebook anniversary by giving it a makeover and adding an Addendum on Depression [available here!]. I made my debut in The Guardian with my piece on How Harry Potter Changed My Life, and Bobbi designed me some new business cards. Here’s what I’ve been reading lately. What about you?
