“Chats With the Author” is here!

In case you didn’t know, I have a Facebook Group for my Nerdy Romantics fans and newsletter subscribers. We used to have book discussions, but our best discussion we had was with Talia Hibbert on her book Get a Life Chloe Brown. Yes! Talia Hibbert chatted with us!

I wanted to bring that same great discussion back, so next month I will be revamping the book discussions in the group. It will now be called “Chats with the Author”  and instead of just us talking about a book, I’ll invite the author to come tell us what they think.

I asked for author suggestions, and one of our nerdy romantics in the group, @JessieMarie suggested having Camille Baker talk about her debut romance novel Have We Met? Well, Camille said yes!

It’s been a long time coming … (questions answered)

I’ve been thinking a lot the past few weeks about brand awareness, engagement, and what it means to really connect with people about a topic we all love–in this case, books, specifically love stories.

It’s caused me to re-think some of the things I’m doing to connect with you, and it’s shown me that I may need to clarify some of the stuff surrounding my brand and well … me. Read on for answers to your two (three, really) biggest questions below.

Help an author in need

Kelly Hartog and I are members of the Women’s Fiction Writer’s Associaation. She’s been a part of many virtual write-ins and her presence has helped me get over a hurdle or two in my writing.

I knew Kelly was awaiting a kidney, but when I saw the following post from another member, I had to reach out to ask your your help:

Kelly is awaiting a kidney transplant and has to, unfortunately, turn away work right now for medical reasons. And when I say it takes a lot for Kelly to not work, I mean, this is a woman who survived a suicide bomber in Kenya and managed to write the story even then. Please consider donating something to the GoFundMe her friend Kymberly Harris has set up to help with Kelly’s living expenses.
