I don’t think it’s any coincidence that the Rita finalists have been announced and there are some very recognizable names on that list – people we’ve interviewed on Author Talk. Yes, no coincidence at all.
Here’s a round of congrats to:
and the actress JD Robb
The new “season” of Author Talk should be starting soon, and we’re excited to get our new videos out. In the meantime, here are some of the videos from our Rita nominees – congrats again!
Vicki Lewis Thompson with special appearance by the actress JD Robb:

Gena and I escaped the tornadoes of Oklahoma only to arrive JUST IN TIME to enjoy the largest earthquake in Southern California since 1994. A good time was had by all!
We ran into Barbara Vey from Publisher’s Weekly and did a quick Drive By Video for her Beyond Her Book Blog. It’s about one of the most exciting guests we’ll probably, most likely should be interviewing shortly. You can check it out here.
(Will embed the video later – promise).
The Wet Noodle Posse asked me to write a up a blog on how Author Talk began, and answer a few questions. You can view it by clicking here.
Friday we’ll have our latest Author Talk interview – you’ll get two authors with this one!
PC Cast’s Warrior Rising, or Warrior Riiiizing as more commonly pronounced, was released this week. In it, PC retells the story of the Trojan War. Now before you jump to conclusions, this book is not about THOSE kind of Trojans. Rather, it’s about some war that took place in China or Africa, a horse may have been involved…I don’t know. I do know that PC Cast is a fabulous writer and she can make a book, even if it’s not about THOSE kind of Trojans fantastic.
PC and her daughter Krissy were in our third Author Talk video. The comments Gena and I receive about this episode are varied, but one thing is for certain – teenagers hate me. I’ve been called anything from rude, stupid to a mahjor bitch (yes, that’s the spelling used). Feel free to join in on the fun of calling me something nasty by visiting here.
