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 »

Channel Surfing: Before Sunset

Channel Surfing: Before Sunset

I’m happy to welcome Arlinda to Literary, etc! She’s guest blogging today and she’s here to review her favorite film, Before Sunset. It all started with a random conversation with a complete stranger on a train. Nine years later they are reunited by the book Jesse wrote about his night with Celine. Upon the success of his novel, Jesse embarks on a promotional tour in Europe with the last stop in Paris. It is at the infamous Shakespeare and Company bookstore where he at long last runs into Celine. She walks in. She’s listening to him ramble on about a book he wants to write and then he sees her. For a moment you can feel the tension and the connection and the realization that this is the person they’ve… 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 »

Gillian Flynn Chicago Discussion of Gone Girl

Gillian Flynn Chicago Discussion of Gone Girl

I’m excited to welcome the lovely Rachelle B as today’s guest blogger! She was kind enough to attend Gillian Flynn’s discussion and book signing in Chicago. If you’re wondering, I’m the friend who sent the book. On 2/13/13 I had the opportunity to hear Gillian Flynn speak at the Harold Washington Library. I had never read anything by this author, but a friend of mine in New Mexico is a huge fan, so I figured I’d check her out. My friend ended up sending me a copy of Flynn’s newest book, Gone Girl, so I definitely had to go now. I’m so glad I did. Flynn is an entertaining and inspirational person. When asked when her interest in writing ‘darker’ books began, she told us that her very first short… Read more »
