Interview | Mindy McGinnis

Mindy McGinnis….how has the world lived so long without having a Mindy McGinnis book on the shelves until now? Her debut, Not A Drop To Drink, is a tour de force. You know those blog posts you see about writing where they advise you to have action on every page? This book has action and tension and suspense in every sentence. I’m not kidding. I read this book in one big inhale. I teared up at about, oh, FIVE different parts of the book. And even though the story is about survival and justifying the means to an end,...

Interview | Jaycee DeLorenzo

Jaycee DeLorenzo is a woman on a mission: write the best books ever and introduce the world to New Adult. She is succeeding on both fronts. Her book, The Truths about Dating and Mating is fantastic and fun, and her website NA Alley is one of THE central hubs for all things New Adult. It’s an incredible resource for both writers and readers.  She hails from Tucson, Arizona and is a member of Romance Divas, Romance Writers of America and The Saguaro Chapter of Romance Writer’s of America, and a contributor on group blogs such as Indie Ignites.

And she has released a lot of books, but nowhere in the bio does it say they’re fantastic, fast-paced and captivating reads. And nowhere in that bio does it say how devoted her fans are to...

Interview | Kate Brauning

I can speak from personal experience that Kate is great. Amazing. Wonderful. I heard about her through Twitter via one of my favorite authors who had used Kate’s editorial services. So I checked out her website and was basically blown away! From her bio: “As an associate editor with a publishing house, I bring to my critiques my knowledge of the market, comparison titles, and genre trends, and my knowledge of story structure, voice, grammar, sentence structure, plot arcs, and character development. Having interned at both a literary agency and Entangled Publishing, I’ve had significant experience working all kinds...
