Holly LeCraw Takes on THE Dreaded Question

Holly LeCraw Takes on THE Dreaded Question

As Holly LeCraw prepares for next Tuesday, April 6th and the launch of her debut novel, The Swimming Pool, she’s realized that writing her book was probably the simplest task of being an author. For she has learned it doesn’t matter how literary critics describe her novel: “Strong writing keeps the reader sucked in to LeCraw’s painful family drama debut. It is a story of deep and searing love, between siblings and lovers, but most powerfully between parents and their…

For Holiday Gift Giving: An Autographed Book

For Holiday Gift Giving: An Autographed Book

More than likely those visiting this site would agree that books are among the best holiday gifts with autographed ones being perfection! Autographed, is that possible without going to a book signing? Indeed it is and, with the holidays only more than a month away, this Fairy Godmother contacted authors who had had a new book released within the past six months to ask, “Do you autograph by mail?” So anyone searching for that unique, reasonably priced, perfect present, here…

What of Our Debut Authors, Ivy Pochoda and Therese Walsh?

What of Our Debut Authors, Ivy Pochoda and Therese Walsh?

Five weeks ago today, Ivy Pochoda became a debut author when The Art of Disappearing appeared on bookstore shelves. And, although the day before the novel’s release The Divining Wand posted — Ivy Pochoda’s The Art of Disappearing –, it was Ivy’s own post, Let the Games Begin written on the same day, that really tells her story. Yes it’s all about a dream coming true after years on a journey of writing, finding an agent, selling the manuscript and…

The CHRISTMAS Book

The CHRISTMAS Book

After six consecutive Mondays of presenting new releases or debut novels, there is a lull in the flurry of publication…at least for our authors. Yet what perfect timing since it allows this Fairy Godmother to carry on a tradition that began on my former blog — Seize a Daisy — and present this year’s The Christmas Book by Neiman Marcus. The luxury, Dallas-based retailer, known for offering its customers, the ultimate in cutting-edge, dream-fulfilling gifts, has done it again by…

Let’s JUST BE NICE

Let’s JUST BE NICE

In choosing an author as I would a friend, I’ve “met” and made wonderfully caring writers/friends during the past three years. And Judy Merrill (Moticka) Larsen (All the Numbers) is certainly one of them. In fact, shortly after we met and a post of her debut novel appeared on my former blog, Judy was inspired to create her own blog, Not Afraid of the “F” Word. However you may have heard that inspiration struck again on Monday afternoon when Judy…

Presenting Debutante Eve Brown-Waite and First Comes Love, Then Comes Malaria

Presenting Debutante Eve Brown-Waite and First Comes Love, Then Comes Malaria

[Note: It’s mid-week of the continuing celebration for The Debutante Class of 09 and it’s time to spotlight Eve Brown-Waite’s adventurous memoir which debuted in April.] From the cover of her memoir, Debutante Eve Brown-Waite’s “eye” peeks out from behind the jungle foliage of either a Latin American, Asian or African country, and one can only imagine what she has seen. Perhaps it’s something exotic, dangerous, or yet another test of daily survival during her years in the Peace Corps?…
