Today I am spotlighting Beth Hale; In her own words:

Beth Hale writes about what she knows: strong, Southern women and the men who love them. She twines believable characters, realistic circumstances, and heart-felt emotions together to create sassy, sexy contemporary romances. She draws inspiration from the every day life problems we all face, and expands them into vivid, interesting, hard-to-put-down stories.

She learned the joys of reading from her mother, and her love affair with books has only grown stronger. If she isn’t breathing life into a new character, she is trying to make a dent in her large to-be-read pile.
Beth lives in a small town in Mississippi with her own real-life hero and two children. They share the house with a variety of pets. When she is not working her “day job” as an E-911 dispatcher, you can find her curled up on her couch, with a blanket, coffee, and notebook.

She is the author of the Unexpected Emotion Series and the Magnolia Series.

**Unexpected Emotion: Love doesn’t care if you’re looking for it or not.**

Book One: Trusting Jack. Emma must decide if she can put aside her past hurt and learn to trust Jack as much as she loves him. (Available now.)

Today I am spotlighting Micki Peluso, author of AND THE WHIPPOORWILL SANG

In her own words:

I have written since I learned to hold a pencil. But life interferred with serious writing until a tragedy struck my family.I have written since I learned to hold a pencil. But life interferred with serious writing until a tragedy struck my family. This time I took up the pen and wrote as a catharsis to my grief–where spoken words failed, written words helped heal my wounded soul.

My first short story of the incident was published in an International Journal, and a career in writing was launched.After enough rejection slips to wallpaper my kitchen, I discovered writing for newspapers. After that there were no more rejections, which was a great relief. I became a staff freelance writer for a bi-weekly award winning newspaper and freelance slice of life writer for the larger local paper, serving a city of 500,000 people. The diversity of writing for newspapers let me experiment in many areas of writing from essays, commentaries, interviews, humor, pathos, analogy, and short fiction.

I have recently published my first non-fiction book, . . .AND THE WHIPPOORWILL SANG, dedicated to the one I lost. Published by Light Sword Publishing, it is a funny, poignant celebration of life rather than a eulogy of death. My next book is a sci-fi chapter book for children, co-written with my 11 year-old grandson, who demands top billing. I still write short stories, my favorite category, especially humor and paranormal and have several other childrens’ books in progress

BETHANY TURNER “PAY IT FORWARD” WEEK – Today’s RRBC Author – Bethany Turner (HERSELF!)

Bethany 

Good afternoon – today on THE GUNDERSTONE REVIEW, as well as on ALL of my social media sites, I am going to spotlight, promote, and propel one of my fellow authors from my online book club – #RaveReviews BookClub ( #RRBC )

The “BETHANY TURNER “PAY IT FORWARD” WEEK” effort is the brain child of member Bethany Turner to which I have volunteered – three days in total this week for three different authors.

Today I am spotlighting, as it would just so happen, Bethany Turner herself!

In her own words:

Bethany Turner is the author of the Abigail Phelps Series of books:
I’ve Loved These Days, Scenes From Highland Falls, and Two Thousand Years.
You can follow her journey on her daily blog, The Year of Blogging Faithfully.

With the Abigail Phelps Series, author Bethany Turner had the unique opportunity to bring together in one series of books all of the pop culture places and things with which she has ever been obsessed. We should have known it would come to this..Her first writing award was in the 2nd grade – at a State-level contest, students were given the assignment of writing about any living person they would choose to have lunch with, and why. While do-gooders all around her chose Reagan, Thatcher, and Gorbachev, Bethany chose John Stamos – yes, Uncle Jesse. Her obsession with pop culture continues more than 25 years later, and Bethany is proud to say that John Stamos ignores her on Twitter and Facebook, even to this very day.

Bethany is a born and bred Kentucky girl who relocated to Colorado in 2001, three years after meeting the love of her life in a chat room – back before anyone knew that wasn’t a good idea. Thankfully, it worked out in this case, and she and her husband are the proud parents of two boys.

BETHANY TURNER “PAY IT FORWARD” WEEK – Today’s RRBC Author – Denise Liebig

Good afternoon – today on THE GUNDERSTONE REVIEW, as well as on ALL of my social media sites, I am going to spotlight, promote, and propel one of my fellow authors from my online book club – #RaveReviews BookClub ( #RRBC )

Today I am spotlighting Denise Liebig, author of Dear Maude (The Dear Maude Trilogy Book 1)

In her own words:

“I’m Denise Liebig, a writer and long-time Las Vegas area resident.  When I’m not busy living my life as a wife and mother of three kids, I write.  And when I’m not writing, I’m thinking about writing.  When I’m not thinking about writing, I’m generally asleep (dreaming of things to write about).  I could go on, but in the end we’d probably all be asleep!

Before my current experience, I worked for a consulting engineering firm, where I wrote proposals and other marketing materials.  Although this was a somewhat technical gig, I did not lose sight of my underlying passion – writing fiction.  I put it on hold, but it never went away – it just took about twenty years to realize!

I started “Dear Maude” many years ago, while also helping my husband with his business and being a “kid shuttle.”  Once the kids were older, I also found myself in the fortunate situation of working from home – alone.  That is when I started to write full-time.  Once I completed “Dear Maude,” I made the difficult decision to postpone publishing it until the other books in the series were complete.  Crazy?  Yes!  Worth it?  Absolutely!  Although this approach might not have worked for others, it served as an amazing learning and writing experience that I would not trade for anything.  I hope that you enjoy reading the series as much as I enjoyed writing it!”

BETHANY TURNER “PAY IT FORWARD” WEEK – Today’s RRBC Author – Jean Shorney

Good morning – today on THE GUNDERSTONE REVIEW, as well as on ALL of my social media sites, I am going to spotlight, promote, and propel one of my fellow authors from my online book club – #RaveReviews BookClub ( #RRBC )

Today I am spotlighting Jean Shorney, author of the Aidan McRaney series

In her own words:

“Jean Shorney is a writer in the South of England. Jean’s books cover a wide range of topics, from horror to gangland, while experimenting with other genres.

The modern phenomena of self-publishing has given Jean the opportunity to show her work to a wide audience. Her work has already drawn favourable interest from readers voraciously enjoying the exploits of her characters.

Jean grew up in rural West Berkshire, which is a place rife with tales of folklore and lurid ghost stories. These tales ignited the writer’s passion for writing, allowing her to weave her own tales while absorbing books from classics to science fiction.

Classics such as Dickens’ works were often given as presents by her family, while Jean sought out writers like Ray Bradbury and Isaac Asimov, which were sourced from places such as the nearby American airbase.  Along with these authors, other influences such as Jack Higgins’ thrillers, and classic TV like The Outer Limits and Gunsmoke, really piqued Jean’s interest in different styles or storytelling.

Now, following a happy marriage and raising two children, Jean has thrown herself back into her writing, exploring the platforms the Internet is offering, such as Twitter.”
