How the Literary Librarian Came to Be

The Literary Librarian was an idea born in collaboration between Amarine Rose Ravenwood and Roma Gray from Trick or Treat Thrillers. The idea was that Amarine would host a website dedicated to the support and promotion of fellow authors and poets, with the assistance of fellow author, Persia Black. The Literary Librarian provides a place to endorse the works of others through author interviews and poetry hosting, as well as promotional advertising.
