Turning the Tables: Amazeballs Book Addicts

Starting a little something fun here called Turning the Tables, where I interview bloggers (instead of the other way around!). It's something I'm going to try to do once a month, to help shine a light on blogs and bloggers who are making a difference in the indie author world. This month's blog is the awesome Amazeballs Book Addicts. Tabitha and Gia, the blog's owners, rock when it comes to supporting pretty much anything book related! Be sure to go show them some love on their Facebook page or their website! Now, let's get down to the interview and see what these ladies have to say! Where are you from? Tabitha- North GA Gia - Rhode Island Tell us a little bit about yourself (married, kids,

Planning vs Pantsing with Lorah Jaiyn

Today I'm joined by fellow romance author Lorah Jaiyn and we're talking about how we plot our stories. I'm a definite planner, whereas Lorah is a pantser. We'll each talk about what our respective terms mean and how we work with it. Hopefully, this will give those unsure of where they fall a bit of insight or ideas on how to complete their works-in-progress. :) Let's get started! PLANNING What is a planner? It's pretty much how it sounds. Someone who is a planner tends to lay out their stories ahead of time, so they know exactly where it's going, the pace of it, and so on. Why this works better for me than pantsing I guess I'm what some would call a Type A personality. lol I need the structu

You Reap What You Sow

I wasn’t going to address the situation currently exploding all over social media. I tend to try to focus on my own work and stay out of the drama, but this is far more than that. And a comment made during a conversation with a friend who is an aspiring author made me realize I can’t be quiet about it after all. The comment? She said she wasn’t sure she wanted to publish the books she wrote, after seeing all that has gone on over the last few days. It was a wake-up call for me. So, while this situation hasn’t affected my books personally, I feel I need to publicly stand with the authors it has. When I was writing my first book, I was in awe of how the indie community was so welcoming and hel

Me+You Author Interview: Lynsey M. Stewart

Lead Me To The Water by Lynsey M. Stewart Lead me to the Water When my mum died, I didn't expect her to offer me the opportunity to start again. She told me to take chances, travel, discover life and fall in love. It sounded beautiful in theory, but sitting on the beach wondering where I was going to start was terrifying. Good thing there was a distraction… Contemplating life is easier when you’re watching a hot Surfer emerge from the water, peeling himself out of a wetsuit like a scene from a Bond film. Life doesn’t always go to plan; sometimes a curve ball leads you in a different direction. For me, it was a rogue olive. Spraining my ankle wasn’t part of the start a new life and be fabulou

Me+You Author Interview: J.L. Leslie

Freeing Fenley by J.L. Leslie I am a perfectionist. My parents will not allow anything less of me. I will not allow anything less of myself. I follow the rules and I never break them. I strive to accomplish my goals and, for me, failure is not an option. I can handle a playboy surfer. His smiles do not charm me. His touches do not warm my skin. His words do not make me forget my promises. I did not see Brigham King coming. He is my client. I never mix business with pleasure…especially when my job is on the line. “I want to make you live, Fenley. I want to make you come alive.” * Freeing Fenley contains adult language, adult content, and sexual situations. It is intended for mature re
