Sunday Post #1

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

Inspired by the meme, In My Mailbox - it's a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books, things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

So lets get started :)

Sunday, June 3
On Sunday we had author Stephen Zimmer on the blog for his Spirit of Fire blog tour. His guest post - War: What is it good for?
Sneak peak - "Conflict is one of the most critical elements of a compelling story, and there are few better contexts for bringing conflicts of all kinds into a story than war. Wars provide an environment in which characters of all kinds develop, are tested rigorously, and ultimately go through their individual arcs to destinations that are for the better or worse."  Read more here

Eternal Hunger has that part in it, but I feel that Sara (human mate) accepted it too fast - any sane person would put up more of a fight, I mean, he's a vampire, hellooo - grab your lip gloss and run!!"

On Tuesday we had author Elysa Hendricks over for a guest post - A Reading Writer's Dilemma.
Sneak peak - "But for every upside there's a downside. As my writing skills increased I found my enjoyment in reading decreased. When I began writing my muses were already active, but my inner critic had yet to show up. My muses live in the attic of my mind. When I'm in the creative process these beautiful, energetic ladies with their wild imaginations leave their aerie and join me in my office to inspire and excite me." Read more here

Thursday, June 7
On Thursday we had author Natalie Hancock over for an interview, telling us about her novels, her characters and those sexy book covers of hers.
Sneak peak - "Q: If you were deserted on an island, who are 3 famous people you would want with you and why? A: JIMMY THOMAS!!!! Do I really need a reason..." Read more here
