Featured Books Friday!

Image-6

Here we are again for Featured Books Friday! I was at the fabulous Storymakers conference last weekend, so I will try to get some of the attendees to post here. 🙂 I love reading through the book blurbs in the comment section. I encourage you to do the same and support these talented authors. You can also scroll through old posts for even more amazing books and authors.

Below, in the comments, you are welcome to add your name, title, and genre – along with a 500 word scene or blurb. (Please no erotica or extreme violence) I will blast and share away.

Thanks for playing!!

Here’s mine from my novel “Broken Smiles” (Women’s contemporary romance.)

Run barefoot in fields of golden wheat

Feel the forest floor sink between toes

Discover caves where nobody knows

So kick off the shoes that weigh you down

Eileen lay still in her deep sleep, unmoved, unchanged. Laidan set down her guitar and went to the attached bathroom. Her hands gripped the sides of the vanity as she braced herself. It had been so hard when she’d lost her father — she couldn’t go through it again.

Happy reading!

My interview with “The Newest Novelist”

It was fun to be highlighted on this blog. She asked some unique questions. I love to do interviews and if you would like to have me on your blog, go to my contact page and send me an email. Thanks!

The Newest Novelist

I’ve just been in touch with the lovely Tara Mayoros, author of the newly-released novel, Broken Smiles. It’s always exciting to me when an author publishes her first book, but when it’s an author I know personally, I want to jump up and down for joy! I met Tara last year at a book launch, and ran into her again at a recent writer’s conference. Tara was gracious enough to grant an interview with The Newest Novelist.

TNN:  When did you actually start writing?

TARA:  I have…
