Author Q&A: Summer Prescott

Author Q&A: Dakota Storm

The perception of reviewers as people who’ve failed at the skill they’re critiquing doesn’t hold true for Nanee McGee. Her book blog, Up All Day Read All Night, inspired her to expand her creative endeavors beyond photography and into telling her own stories. And writing romance novels has given her...

Author Q&A: Linda Smolkin

Right now, it rocks to be Linda Smolkin. An enthusiastic drummer in her spare time (to the sometimes chagrin of her family), Smolkin is now also a published author receiving accolades from amateur and professional reviewers alike. Now that Among the Branded is out and fulfilling Smolkin’s childhood dream of...

Author Q&A: Sariah Wilson

Romance author Sariah Wilson may never have jumped out of a plane or climbed Mount Everest (as she makes clear in her Amazon author bio), but she does have an adventurous spirit. When her editor asked her to take on a project without providing any details, she said yes. And...
