Despite Arachne keeping our authors hard at work with events to promote our books, they do have a (writing) life outside Arachne. Because Arachne was set up to support authors as well as produce books which we hope the reading public will fall in love with, we are very interested in what our authors are doing outside of their Arachne stuff.
