TCL’s Countdown Questions #11: Authors Heather Webb & Hazel Gaynor.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week I’m featuring two authors who recently published their second collaborative novel Heather Webb & Hazel Gaynor. Long ago, when I was first blogging, I was fortunate enough to read Heather Webb's debut work "Becoming Josephine" which I called "a masterful debut novel" and I've been a fan … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #11: Authors Heather Webb & Hazel Gaynor.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #10: Author Kate Quinn.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week I’m featuring author Kate Quinn. Before I read "The Alice Network" and "The Huntress" I had heard of Kate Quinn, but never read any of her books. This is probably because her previous novels were set in ancient Rome, and although I enjoy that era for … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #10: Author Kate Quinn.

#6Degrees of Separation for August 3, 2019.

From "Shtum" by Jem Lester to "Kiss Me First" by Lottie Moggach. This is a monthly link-up hosted by Kate at Books Are My Favourite and Best. Each month a book is chosen as a starting point and linked to six other books to form a chain. A book doesn’t need to be connected to all … Continue reading #6Degrees of Separation for August 3, 2019.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #9: Author Mary Glickman.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. This week, featuring author Mary Glickman. I discovered Mary Glickman's historical fiction work via the wonderful NetGally. Admittedly, I was curious and a bit wary of these books because they sounded like there were Jewish themes, and Mary isn't a very Jewish name, yet Glickman could very well … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #9: Author Mary Glickman.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #8: Author and Poet Kathleen Rooney.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. These are the questions I'm asking authors to answer, as I think they'll give insight into them as people, as well as who they are as writers: If you could visit five (5) places you’ve never been, where would you go and why? Name four (4) foods or … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #8: Author and Poet Kathleen Rooney.

TCL’s 2019 Summer Bucket List Book Tag

Sorry! I should have posted this sooner! I want to thank Siobhan from Novelties for tagging me, which was pretty unexpected (I don't have all that many followers, so I didn't think that other bloggers were paying much attention to me, to tell the truth). I’m not totally sure that I have absolutely loved doing … Continue reading TCL’s 2019 Summer Bucket List Book Tag

TCL’s Countdown Questions #7: Author Alma Alexander.

I "met" Alma through the usenet message board misc.writing. Although we've never met in person, and Alma writes in a genre that I don't generally read, I have read one book she wrote, together with the man she later married, Deck Deckert, "Letters from the Fire" which was (we believe) the first email epistolary novel ever written!

TCL’s Countdown Questions #6: Author Joanne Harris!

So... how does an essentially unknown book review blog like this one get the world-famous, international best selling author Joanne Harris to participate in her five little alternative author interview?

#6Degrees of Separation for July 6, 2019.

From “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak to “Shtum" by Jem Lester. This is a monthly link-up hosted by Kate at Books Are My Favourite and Best. Each month a book is chosen as a starting point and linked to six other books to form a chain. A book doesn’t need to be connected … Continue reading #6Degrees of Separation for July 6, 2019.

TCL’s Countdown Questions #4: Author and Poet Paula Light.

An Alternative Author Interview: TCL's Countdown Questions. My fellow blogger Jill Doyle has a lovely thing on her blog called “Five on Friday” where she asks authors five questions that each require five answers. I thought this was really great, mostly because I’ve never done an author interview myself – at least not a good … Continue reading TCL’s Countdown Questions #4: Author and Poet Paula Light.
