A Conversation with Michelle Gross, Author of HEARTBEAT GIRL (with a giveaway!)

Thanks so much for agreeing to be with us today, Michelle! Thanks for having me! What 5 things should readers know about you? Hmm. Questions about myself are always the hardest because I feel like I don’t have anything interesting to say about me, but here goes. I’m a mom to twin girls. And autism mom. I write the best at night. Sometimes, I can write a book in weeks while others can take months. The editing process takes months, regardless. I have this irrational fear that I’ll never write all the books I want before dying. So much inspiration…

A Conversation with C.J. Campbell, Author of TEMPEST (with a giveaway!)

Thanks so much for agreeing to be with us today, C.J.! Thrilled to be here, too. Love any opportunity to get nerdy about stories. What 5 things should readers know about you? Ah! It’s awesome to be hanging with you guys too. Oooh. Straight in with a tough question. Hm. Lemme think . . . Okay; I’m not shy. I’m just quietly trying not be weird. Like, people always assume ‘oh you’re a bookworm you must be shy and introverted.’ NO, Susan, I’m just a nerd with social awkwardness. So, please, if you ever meet me feel free to be…

A Conversation with Alexandrea Weis, Author of HAVE YOU SEEN ME? (with a giveaway!)

Thanks so much for agreeing to be with us today! What 5 things should readers know about you? I am a vegetarian, run five miles a day, am an animal advocate, love french fries, and live on chocolate when I write. Well, I’m with you on the last 3 items… 😉 Where did the inspiration for this book come from? The inspiration for the story was the cover. My manager sent me a pre-made book cover—yes, the cover is pre-made—by Gabriel De Leon. She said, “This girl has a story to tell, and I want to know what it is.…

A Conversation with Fern Ronay, Author of BETTER BELIEVE IT (with a giveaway!)

Thanks so much for agreeing to be with us today! Happy to be here! What 5 things should readers know about you?  My first name is Jennifer but my friends call me Fern. I am 100% Italian American and from New Jersey. I love Sarah Jessica Parker, SATC, Golden Girls and historical fiction and history in general.

I believe in signs from the other side and have a podcast called Signs from the…

Q&A and Giveaway with Bestselling Author Jamie Beck, Author of IF YOU MUST KNOW by Jamie Beck (Potomac Point #1)

How do you describe your newest novel If You Must Know? This book is a “beach book” in the best sense. It’s not angsty, yet it has a page-turning plot and a bunch of interesting, relatable characters. I think it’s entertaining and heartfelt at the same time, which is exactly what many enjoy reading while on vacation. What inspired the novel? The external plot came to me as a result of the influence of two people in my life. My dear friend’s husband is a forensic accountant, so some of his stories about how people hide money and flee their…

A Conversation with Nicola Davidson, Author of SCANDALOUS PASSIONS (Highland Menage #1)

Thanks so much for agreeing to be with us today, Nicola! What 5 things should readers know about you? Hmmmm. I am an unashamed history geek, I’m from New Zealand, sex scenes are my favorite to write, I spend way too much time online, and I will fight anyone who attempts to come between me and dessert. LOL—I’m with you on numbers 1, 4, and 5. Especially 5. Where did the inspiration for your book come from? Good question! I’m not entirely sure. I felt a bit jaded with Regency and wanted to write something completely different. Era and relationship.…

Thanks so much for agreeing to be with us today! What 5 things should readers know about you? I live in Chicago, I have a twin, I’m originally from Maryland, I believe my characters are real, and I love a good fancy bottle of Jameson. Oooh, a twin—fun! And of course your characters are real…aren’t they? 😉 Where did the inspiration for this book come from? This book’s inspiration came from my friends in Chicago. I wrote a book five to six years ago about me moving to Chicago, coming out, and dealing with heartbreak. I wanted to keep that…

A Conversation with Catherine Lanigan, Author of HOME FOR CHRISTMAS (Shores of Indian Lake #12–with a giveaway!)

What 5 things should readers know about you?  They should know I take my writing very seriously. I feel a responsibility to deliver the best of my talent at the age I am when writing it. I’ve been writing for 40 years. I work endlessly on screenplays. My first Hallmark movie, THE SWEETEST HEART was aired last year I love to cook. Congrats on the Hallmark movie! I’ll have to check it out 🙂 Where did the inspiration for this book come from? In my town, La Porte, Indiana, there used to be the most fabulous all glass greenhouses built…

A Conversation with Maria Cleveland, Author of REFORMING THE CEO (with TWO Giveaways!)

Thanks so much for agreeing to be with us today, Marisa! Thank you so much for having me! What 5 things should readers know about you? This is harder than it should be, so I’m going to choose one thing from each of the past five years to make up my five things readers should know about me. One: In 2014, author Sonya Weiss released the first book in her A Stealing the Heart series. A novel titled Stealing the Groom. To this day, I claim to everyone who will listen that I discovered Sonya Weiss on May 22, 2012…
