A visit with Megan Frampton, author of Put Up Your Duke

It is my absolute pleasure to welcome quirky Megan Frampton today. Celebrating the release of her new book, Put Up Your Duke, Megan is going to give us a bit more background into her quirkiness. Take it away, Megan!I Am Quirky, Hear Me Roar When I first started writing, some of the people to whom I showed my work commented that my writing didn’t sound much like me—that I needed to allow more of my personality out to really make the writing stand apart. I took that advice to heart, and then some.

Until I started getting more reviews of my books, I didn’t realize…
