SPECIAL BONUS: REST STOP RESPITE. Every good road trip needs a few rest stops. Come grab a coffee and kick back with bestselling, award-win-ning Erie author Susan Gable (half of the Dynamic Duo of “Trippin’ With Holly & Susan” podcast). Chat about writing, about publishing,about...well, like any good road trip, the conversation occasionally goes off-roading. But Susan is happy to take a spin around the unexpectedblock.
