Hi everyone! First off, I want to thank Laura over at Little Read Riding Hood and Shirley over at Creative Deeds. This event wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for them. They’ve put in a tremendous amount of effort and time and I love them dearly. I could probably write an entire post on just how awesome I think these two are. I’m the luckiest author alive to have them on my street team and even luckier to call them friend. If you’re an author or reader please check out their blogs, folks. Everything they do is for the love of books and it shows. And if you haven’t followed them on FB or Twitter or visited their blogs, you should. Go ahead and do it. I’ll wait.
As part of the event, each author is paired up with a blogger. Today, I’m paired with Ally from All Things In The Cloud Sweet. Although Ally lives far away in Mexico, there are times when it feels like she’s right here in Georgia. What can I say except that I adore Ally. We chat on Twitter now and then, and she’s not only one of the nicest people you’ll ever follow there, she’s smart and funny, too. Find Ally on Twitter and Goodreads.
Bloggers are always interviewing authors, but I think it would be fun to interview them instead! Since I adore Ally, I thought you’d like a chance to get to know her as well. Please give her a warm welcome.
