Chat Between Chapters: Authors who should collaborate on a book

 Are there any authors you think would write an awesome book together? Share which authors you would love to see collaborate on a project.  Julie: I’m sure there are plenty of authors who would benefit from a collaborative work, but off the top of my head I can think of two lovely ladies who I would love to see collaborate – Rachel Vincent and Sophie Jordan. I’ve read many of their books and have met them in person several times (Sophie Jordan lives locally to me). They’re even friends! I enjoy their storytelling styles and I think their talent for… Read more »

You’ve got to be kidding.”  (Kate) “Is it too on the nose?”  (Nick) “I thought you were James Bond today.”  (Kate) “I’m trying to keep things interesting.” (Nick) Nick grabbed her, pulled her close against him, and kissed her.

Interview with Sarah Mäkelä, and Giveaway

Interview with Sarah Mäkelä, and Giveaway

Author interview with Sarah Mäkelä: Describe Beneath the Broken Moon in 10 words or less for people who are just learning about it. Female werewolf torn between an alpha werewolf and vampire.

This is a tough question since I’ve done both. I was working on another book when Beneath the Broken Moon resurfaced. I’d originally written it November 2010, but I dug back in and… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Genre Shaming

Chat Between Chapters: Genre Shaming

 Have you ever gotten caught up in genre shaming? What do you think about it?  Julie: Bookworms like to read – period. Does it really matter what we read? I say, no, it doesn’t. So what if we’re grown ups who enjoy YA? So what if someone only reads romance aka “smut”? Why do some people who read “literary fiction” tend to look down their noses at that? I say we’re all reading and that is wonderful. Reading is a hobby, and we should be able to pick the books and genre that makes us happy to be a reader…. Read more »

Let’s chat about our bookshelves again, shall we?

Taken From Home – Guest Post by Jana Grissom

Taken From Home, Guest Post by Jana Grissom “You call CPS right now and tell her to take me back to my mom!” screams a big brown eyed little girl. She’s hurt, confused and just wants to go home. It wasn’t her choice. She didn’t want to leave her real family in the first place, but Child Protective Services swooped in and took her anyway, leaving a trail of tears in their wake. I was a foster parent for four years in Texas. I can vouch for CPS, they want to protect children. According to DFPS regional statistics for, 15,924… Read more »
