Let's kick off our February Featured Author Spotlights with Traci Angrighetti. I have two things to say about this interview: 1. This might be the cutest cover I've seen in ages. Love how eye-grabbing it is, and 2. I will never look at silkworms the same way again! And off we go....
Coming out of hibernation to post this week's Friday Feature interview with the adorable Jennifer Anderson. Grab a blankie and some hot chocolate and find out what this author of YA and NA is up to!
I am an expert at bombing at self-promotion. I work a day job. I am lazy. I am allergic to Twitter. You know, the usual excuses.
I have learned a few things though, in reading Twitter, which I do when I’m sitting here, brain frozen as I try to dredge up one interesting tweet that will never come because most of my days consist of ‘Clock in. Rearrange things. Clean things people mess up. Go to lunch. Come back. Do it again.’ I have learned, my friends, how not to sell books. I may even be an offender on some of these points, so don’t crucify me. Just take these as educated observations.
Here are a few of the biggest offenders I come across:
William Nikkel is a man with an impressive library of books to promote. If you're looking for action and suspense, I think you've come to the right place. Check out the interview below and more importantly, check out Mr. Nikkel's works!
I am a terrible, terrible blogger! I have spent the entire day thinking it was Thursday, and not posting this wonderful interview with author Linda Rettstatt. This is a crying shame, too, because...well, have you ever based reading preferences on an author's attitude or personality? Well, Miss Linda here is just an awesome lady, and even though I only know her through the mystical, magical interwebz, she's become one of my favorite gals in the writing biz. I will have to beg her for forgiveness for my goof. Please read on, and give her books some love!
I hope everyone is having a great time for the holidays. Aside from the fact that I would have liked to have just a smidge of snow from Christmas, and coughing, and sneezing, and....well, aside from a suicidal immune system, I can say things are going well. The cat hasn't brought down the tree (yet), so yay! This is the best part of the holidays, though, isn't it? When you can finally breathe, curl up on the couch, and read your accumulated Christmas stories. Which means it's the perfect time to put those gift cards to use on this week's featured author, Jim Cangany! Keep that in mind as you check out our interview below:
Looks like things are a little closer to normal here on the homefront, so I can revert back to the regularly scheduled Friday Featured Author posts. Thanks to J. C. Edwards for taking the time to appear on the blog, and to take the plunge on Friday the 13th, no less! And away we go....
I love hearing about what authors who are in the process of writing think about their craft. No matter what stage of the game we're in, I think anybody who has made the crazy choice to write a book can relate to the ups and downs and the ins and outs of it all. Christine Delmater is experiencing that emotional roller-coaster, too, so I really enjoyed her responses below. I need to take a moment to thank her for her patience. I had a family emergency arise after Thanksgiving, and sending questions to my December Featured authors totally slipped my mind. Christine was due to be featured on December 6th, and was a real champ, answering the questions in an unfairly short amount of time, and agreeing to be a mid-week post. I appreciate you not thunking me in the head for my bungled scheduling, Christine! Now, on to the interview:
Friday calls yet again, and I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving. In between all the leftovers meal-planning and Black Friday shopping adventures, make sure you take the time to relax, enjoy the long holiday weekend, and read about fellow Turquoise Morning Press author Judy Alter. Welcome Judy, and take 'er away!
It's very rare to find a fellow writer out there who is supportive just for the sake of being supportive, but fellow Pennsylvanian Sharon Saracino is that kind of gal. I have a bit of a girl crush on her. So it gives me a happy to be able to return the favor in a small way by taking part in her cover reveal today, for her forthcoming book, Life After Death, the sequel to her debut novel, Death Benefits! Keep your eye out for release in January 2014. Read on for deets, and how to score a little author swag to mark the occasion....
