Danielle and Casey: Coming Soon to My Writing Blog!

I am pleased to reveal that not one but two writers are visiting my blog this month, as part of their respective Virtual Book Tours (VBTs) to launch their latest titles.

On Wednesday 6 May, I will be joined by Danielle Thorne, who will be talking about her new historical romance The Privateer (available in e-book form from Awe-Struck Publishing).
The Privateer is based in 18th Century England, but Danielle actually lives near Atlanta, Georgia! I'll be asking what made her choose to write about this setting and period, and how she went about researching it. And, of course, I'll be getting her top tips and advice for other aspiring romantic/historical novelists.

On Tuesday 26 May, American poet Casey Quinn comes to my blog to discuss his first published volume of poetry, Snapshots of Life, from Salvatore Publishing (soon to publish a novella of my own, by the way).

Snapshots of Life is a collection of witty, humorous but above all accessible poems about everyday life, all presented with a wonderfully ironic slant. I'll also be publishing one of Casey's poems, My Niece, which as an uncle to two teenage nieces myself I could really identify with!

I'll be asking Casey how he got into poetry, and any tips he would like to pass on to other aspiring poets. I'm also planning to find out more about Short Story Library, his free weekly online magazine and writers' forum.

And, as usual, I'll be asking both my visitors to nominate their three favorite writing websites - though I'm pretty sure I already know one of the sites Casey is likely to include!

I'm really looking forward to hosting both these excellent writers on my blog, and hope you will enjoy learning more about them and their books too.
