Guest Post: Short Books and Scribes
A Guest Post I wrote for the site Short Books and Scribes. What’s especially cool is that Nicola who runs the site is from the same town as Def Leppard.

Review by Avalinah’s Books
To sum it up, you’ll love this if:
- You like real life characters (all characters in the book were very nicely done and realistic)
- You like strong women and character growth
- Would like to read about the life band members live
- … would like to stay up at night reading

Behind Keith Kutter’s Name: From the Rock of Pages
How did Keith Kutter get his name? I really really wanted to put an umlaut over the ‘u’ but it didn’t work out, as I am not typing in German. But whatever, the name still works, right? This is how he got his name, and whether I think he’s a legit love interest for Brenda.
Guest Blog Post on Hello Chick Lit: I Published a Book, and it’s Completely Awkward
Nobody prepared me for how weird it feels to tell people I’ve published a book. Am I being spammy when I meet people and tell them this?
Author Interview on My Book Place
I got a bit punchy on this one and decided to have a little fun with it.
Author Interview: Bookgoodies.com

From Pretty Little Book Reviews

From Ben Writes Books
I loved the concept of this book. You just don’t see a lot of stories like this. That alone made me excited to read this book. Aging 80’s metal bands getting involved with the normal world is always entertaining.
Fluff Smut and Murder
When I think of the bands that covered my walls back in the day (Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Depeche Mode), I remember all of the dreams and fantasies they were involved in. Back then, they were the demi-gods in my life; now, I’d probably ask if they can remember the lyrics to the obscure track on an early album.
