Welcome to a Back to School freebie edition of Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly linkup hosted as always by the marvelous team at The Broke and the Bookish. Since we were given much freedom with our topics today, I opted to feature some of my favorite books with teachers as […]

Friday completely snuck up on me this week. But here it is!!! Yay! And since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line! The book I’m featuring today is The Thorn Keeper by my dear friend Pepper Basham. And […]

This week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is going to be fun to follow around amongst all the different blogs and see what everyone else posted. We’re talking about things that books have made us want to do – and by association the books that have inspired us to do […]
Hello ladies and lords! After this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post on Books Set Outside the U.S. – in which I purposely left out England too – a couple of my dear reading friends still bemoaned England’s absence. I am nothing if not accommodating, but it really needed its […]
Yay for Fridays! And since it’s Friday, it’s time to grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line! BUT WAIT! Let’s mix things up a bit today. Since it’s July 15th (7/15), you can either leave the first line from Chapter 7 or Chapter […]
Hi everyone! We are kicking off summer today on Top Ten Tuesday with our lists of beach reads! After last week’s atrociously difficult prompt for which I was only to come up with an embarrassing FOUR books (it still hurts a little), I have gone above and beyond this […]
Confession: I had no idea what to do for this week’s theme. The ladies at The Broke and the Bookish suggested that this week be about those books for which we feel differently now that time has passed. Ugh. First of all, if I love a book, I love it. […]
Welcome to a new week of the Readers Appreciation Giveaway (put together by 10 of your fave authors)! Today, we get to hear a special message from one of my very fave people – Pepper Basham! Readers make this journey remarkable. Thank you to all of you who’ve read my novels, found […]

Each day, you’ll hear from a different author with a special message for YOU, their readers. Each day, you’ll have opportunities […]
This week’s theme is books that make you laugh. My first thought was, “Really?” Because it feels like I just did that topic (probably since I did). So I thought about doing some bookish humor instead… but … eh. At the end of the day, I decided I have enough […]
“Ain’t is not a word.” “Put your ‘ing’ on the ends of words.” “Light is made up of a diphthong, not one long, flat vowel.” “Stand up straight.” “Put away your toothpick.” These are just some of the “bossy’ (per Reese) reminders that Dr. Adelina Roseland passes along to Reese […]
Just the word brings about images of tall, strong, and swoony men emerging into a story with enough testosterone to encourage a primal growl from the purist of prudes. Okay, so some heroes might encourage more of a quiet sigh as their tenderness, touch of tease, and/or quiet strength wrap around your heart like a constant hug…from nice strong arms.
Yeah. I hate Spring Daylight Savings Time. So I thought we could all use a bit of cheering up.
How about some free books? Or some great discounts?
(As always, please double check the price before you one-click!)
Do you see me jumping up and down right now? Well, I am (and you should probably be glad you in fact can NOT see me as it’s not pretty.)
I am honored to be the final stop on The Thorn Keeper blog tour with Singing Librarian Books. I am excited to talk about this latest book by Pepper Basham. And I cannot WAIT to remind you all why it made my KissingBooks 101 Lesson 2 post.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted as always by The Broke and the Bookish) is “books to read when you’re in the mood for ______”. I really enjoy these more open-ended themes because everyone’s posts have a greater chance of being tailored to their own personalities.
I. Am. SO EXCITED. As soon as I saw that today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic was a Valentine’s KissingBooks Day freebie, I knew immediately what my post would be about. Way back in August, I wrote my KissingBooks 101 post and it remains one of my most popular/highest viewed posts. But since then I have discovered some additionally swoon-worthy KissingBooks – or remembered some that I forgot about when I was writing the first lesson. I’ve had several people ask me to do another KissingBooks 101, and I am nothing if not accommodating when it comes to this topic 😉
When I originally reviewed The Thorn Bearer, I was a couple weeks into this whole blog thing & I featured it as a Favorites Friday post. At the time, I said, “I’m sure I will still be thinking about The Thorn Bearer months from now…” Now several months later, I not only am still thinking about it as predicted, but I would also still feature it as a favorite because it’s just that beautiful.
You may remember December 31st as New Year’s Eve.
I remember it with great fondness as “Pepper Day”.
On December 31st, I devoted my blog to my friend, author Pepper Basham, in celebration of her birthday and her upcoming contemporary romance, A Twist of Faith – a modern and Appalachian twist on My Fair Lady.
