Guest Post: Novel With a Mission by Tanya J Peterson

Guest Post: Novel With a Mission by Tanya J Peterson

I’m really honored to have Tanya J. Peterson guest blogging today! She’s talking about Leave of Absence and what inspired her to write a novel about mental illness. I reviewed it here and I really hope Tanya’s guest post inspires you to check out Leave of Absence and hopefully read it. Novel with a Mission Jessica, I’d like to express to you and your readers how very pleased I am with your review. My happiness, though, is perhaps for a different reason than what people might assume. Of course, we all create things (writing, paintings or drawings, elaborate meals or desserts, craft items, quilts, clothing, etc.), and as human beings, we do want others to like our stuff. I do, too, of course, but I do realize that there are… Read more »

Woo-hoo, today’s our stop on the Kissing the Maid of Honor blog tour and I’m happy to be part of the bridal party.

Please give a warm welcome to Robin! Hi Jessica! Thanks so much for having me on Literary Etc. It’s great to be here! Weddinspiration… I saw this word somewhere on the Internet recently, and I just loved it. It inspired me to talk about what is at the heart of all weddings—love. Yes, I’m in a total wedding state of mind right now. Not because I’m getting married. I married my high school sweetheart a long time… Read more »

Guest Post: All-Nighters by Gretchen Archer + Giveaway

Guest Post: All-Nighters by Gretchen Archer + Giveaway

Today we have a very special guest post from Gretchen Archer! Gretchen’s book Double Whammy is currently available in paperback and e-book format. I haven’t had the chance to read it, but I did purchase a copy and can’t wait to get lost in it later this upcoming weekend. We also have a giveaway, more information located below her post. All-Nighters My work in the publishing industry began at a very early age. Five or so. My first job was End User. Decades, and much reading, would pass before I crossed to the dark side to write, and while I love what I do, which includes a ton of work-related reading, I miss reading for pleasure. My bookshelves are a testament to my favorite genre. I have complete and beloved… Read more »

Blog Tour: Guest Post & Giveaway-Arthur Gonzalez’s The Photo Traveler

Blog Tour: Guest Post & Giveaway-Arthur Gonzalez’s The Photo Traveler

Today, I have the honor of having Arthur Gonzalez as our guest author and it’s also our stop on The Photo Traveler blog tour. I asked Arthur to write about the memory he’d love to revisit since The Photo Traveler is about being able to time travel to a particular moment in time (provided there’s a physical photograph or drawing). I reviewed The Photo Traveler here and you can read my interview with Arthur here. I hope you take the opportunity to add The Photo Traveler to your TBR list and get lost with Gavin. I really liked the book and I hope you do too. Okay, let me gather a box of Kleenex real quick. Got it. My father passed away six years ago (it will be six years… Read more »

Guest Post: Write What You Know, Right? by Susan Shea

Guest Post: Write What You Know, Right? by Susan Shea

I’m really excited for today’s guest! Today, I have the honor of having Susan C. Shea as our guest author. She delves into the background of The King’s Jar as well as how her real life experience influenced Dani’s character. The King’s Jar will be released on May 1st and I reviewed it here. I hope you take the opportunity to add The King’s Jar to your TBR list and get lost into Dani’s world. Write What You Know, Right? Well, right and not right. It helps to start somewhere solid, whether it’s an emotional truth, an experiential base, or a firm knowledge of a specific discipline. As a writer, I need to make my story credible. If I set it in an auto body shop as the late, much-admired… Read more »

Guest Post: The Destruction Of Innocence by Rebecca Reid

Guest Post: The Destruction Of Innocence by Rebecca Reid

I’m really excited about today’s very special guest! Today we have author Rebecca Reid and her psychological thriller, The Coop, is one of the best books I read in 2012. If you’re interested in knowing more about her, feel free to read her interview. The Destruction Of Innocence This may not come as a shock to you, but writing is so much more than hitting a few keys on your computer. It is so much more than creation. It is alive. To me at least, I can speak for no other authors when I say that. There is no plot line, no pre-planned chapters, just a cold cup of tea and burning fingers. I settle to write and it becomes me. The destination of my journey is unknown, as are… Read more »
