I’m delighted to have interviewed debut author Betty Culley for my first interview of this new(ish) feature! I’m planning on hosting a lot more authors on the blog in the coming months, and I’m so glad that Betty gets to be the first.
Betty Culley wrote a YA contemporary novel called Three Things I Know Are True, which is coming out on 7th January. It’s a great book about a girl whose brother is now paralysed from a gun accident, and she has now become his carer. She also has feelings for her brother’s friend who was with him at the time of the accident, so it’s a bit complicated! Three Things I Know Are True is super emotional, and I’m so happy to be giving it and Betty a spotlight today.
One of my “unofficial” goals for 2015 is to get more authors involved with my blog. I really want to take the time to get to know the authors behind some of my favourite books, and to also show other people how awesome they are. With this Author Spotlight feature I will be showing off the authors’ books, giving away some of them (depending on what my money situation is like each month!) and just generally fangirling over some of the masterminds behind my favourite stories.
The spectacular honour of kicking off this new feature of mine goes to Emery Lord, author of Open Road Summer and The Start of Me and You. I have read both books, and really enjoyed both of them. I don’t think TSOMAY beat ORS in terms of overall feels, but it was still a great contemporary read.
