Author Interview: Ride with Me into Christmas by Rachael Phillips

Author Interview: Ride with Me into Christmas by Rachael Phillips

When you like books as much as I do, you’re bound to start making the acquaintance of few authors here and there. Coincidentally, Rachael and I graduated from the same college. And through similar interests, (hmmm, wonder what that could be?) we met. So it’s really fun for me to get to interview Rachael Phillips here today about her Christmas novella, Ride with Me into Christmas, that’s a part of A Door County Christmas collection.   About Rachael Phillips: Rachael,...

Author Interview: Wrapped in Red by Meghan Gorecki

Meghan Gorecki and I grew up in the same circles (same school scheme aka homeschooling, nearby communities, same church), but we didn’t really meet each other until we’d both blossomed into stunning young women. (Okay, so I’m biased toward Pittsburgh women) But I was so excited to find another writer bent on making the writing life happen. And this Pittsburgh lady is on fire. In the last few years, Meghan Gorecki has published two books with plans for more. But...

If you’re interested in my review of The Engagement Plot, you can read it on @CordiallyBarbara! About Krista Phillips:...

Author Interview: Joshua’s Prayer by Olivia Rae

The author life only has to be a solo one if you choose it. More and more, I’ve discovered how warm and welcoming the writing community can be. There’s room at the table. Grab a chair and we’ll scoot down. That’s the beauty of community. There’s always a way to make room for more. Anyway, all that to say, that I’m so excited to have Olivia Rae with us today for an author interview and to hear a bit about...

Author Interview: 12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep

Norton Conyers Manor Home

One of my favorite things about having this little space of internet is sharing it with others (who knew sharing could be so fun!). Anyway, I’m excited to have Michelle Griep here today because, honestly, I just love how she describes her novel, 12 Days at Bleakly Manor. But, even better, this book incorporates Charles Dickens. What! Yes. I just love books with layers. And Christmas. Shhh, I know it’s September. But everyone knows that Christmas starts early for artists,...

Oh, friends, I am so thrilled to be able to be a part of the book blog tour announcing The Thorn Healer by Pepper D. Basham. Seriously, this is a proud moment for this little internet space.

When my sister found out that Pepper was an author, my sister kind of sort of made internet introductions....

Author Interview: Robin C. Farrell

Resistance Rising by Robin C. Farrell

I love friend recommendations, which is why I love book recommendations,…which is why I’m so excited to introduce you to my friend-recommended friend, Robin, who has a book recommendation for you (and me). I met Robin through a friend who said something along the lines of “you do literary things and so does she.” And you know, that pretty much sealed the deal. When Robin shared that she had a completed novel (my heart went out to her because I’m...
