Just a Girl hosts Jolene for an interview about Night Sky, "I start with a VERY loose idea of where the story might go (it doesn't always go there) and then I just write the scenes that come to me, AS they come to me.

Bundles of Books 101 - Guest Post by UNTIL NEXT TIME's Amy Lignor



At Bundles of Books 101, Amy Lignor talks about Until Next Time, "The response I’ve gotten back from readers thus far has caused a ‘split,’ which is also fun. Some prefer Jason, who seems to have a great deal of romantic power over the angel; whereas others want to see more of Matt the next time around - which they will. In fact, Book II is a much more in-depth story when it comes to the ‘swoon worthy’ warrior."

Melanie's Musings - Guest Post by NIGHT SKY's Jolene Perry



Melanie's Musings hosts Jolene for a guest post for Night Sky - "The simplest reason that writing people of color is important: Look around at the store. At the gas station. At the mall. Down the street. We live in such a wonderfully diverse world, that I think it’s a great thing to celebrate that in our books. Also, I love to learn about other cultures, even if it’s a small part of what I’m reading."

Lissette E. Manning reviews The Priest and the Peaches, "We’re able to watch a family grow within a period of seven days while faced with an adversity that, at times, seems to want to topple the family altogether.

aobibliosphere reviews The Priest and the Peaches, "I am an orphan myself and the eldest child too. I can relate well with Teddy, the eldest brother, as he gathers his wits about him now that he takes over his late father's role as head of the family. The circumstances and intensity may be different but the emotions he felt were real and familiar because i went through them at one point in my life."
