EMILY BLEEKER: READ OUT LOUD TO YOUR CHILD FROM BIRTH

Emily Bleeker’s debut book Wreckage jumped to the top of Amazon ranks. The novel is standing on #1 spot for the last few days. The readers loved the plot and are giving very positive feedback (av. 4.6 stars from 128 reviews).
Emily has very nice story about her transition between education and professional writing. She was kind enough to share it during our interview.

– Emily, what the readers will find inside Wreckage?
– A story about survivors of a plane crash in the South Pacific. After living on an island for nearly two years, the castaways are thrust into the spotlight after their rescue. Every morning show and news program is hounding them for interviews. But they can’t tell the truth about what happened while they were on that island, so they lie. Eight months later, exhausted by the constant media attention, Lillian Linden decides to do one last interview with hard-hitting reporter, Genevieve Randall. She pressures fellow survivor, reluctant Dave Hall, to join her so they can hide behind the exclusivity clause in their contract. But what the survivors don’t know is–Genevieve thinks she knows they are hiding something and she’s willing to tear their lives apart to get the truth.

DONNA MABRY: I AM A FIRM BELIEVER IN MIRACLES

Maude by Donna Mabry was one of the most interesting entries in Top 20 Amazon Bestselling list for the last 10 days. The self-publishing novel was sitting next to well known names as Stephen King and John Grisham. Something more, the non-fiction story gathers far better feedback (av. 4,6 stars from 370 plus Amazon reviews) than the stars of modern literature’s latest production.
Do you want to know more about Donna Mabry? Join us for the next interview!

MomPix

Maude is one of the best non-fiction books of the year. Would you tell us what kind of story the readers will find inside?
– In Maude, readers will find the story of a woman who knew great love and great tragedy. Orphaned at eight years old, her married sister took her into her home and raised her to the age of fourteen, when she married for the first time. Life to Maude meant being obedient, and that did not change until she was much older and decided to take fate into her own hands. She had five children and had to bury four of them, yet she clung to her faith and went about her life as best she could.

ALAN RUSSELL: PICKING OUT A FAVORITE BOOK IS LIKE PICKING OUT A FAVORITE CHILD

Alan Russel’s next book Guardians of The Night will be officially released on January 1 2015. The novel is available for download as e-book. The story headed Amazon bestselling list few days ago and still is staying as #1. We’ve got a great chance to speak about the book with the author himself. Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time for our next guest – Mr. Alan Russell.

alan_russell

– Alan, your next book Guardians of The Night will be officially released in January, but the novel is already #1 ин Amazon’s bestselling books. Did you expected such result?
– I’ve never written a book with the idea of, “I’m writing a bestseller.” Every book I write I want to be compelling. I also never want to write the same book twice. Some authors only have one book in them, and they keep rewriting that same book over and over. If I make a reader think, and I make a reader feel for my protagonist, then I think I have succeeded in writing the book.
