Author Spotlight: Sarah Addison Allen

One of my “go-to” authors when I need a well-written book that I know will be satisfying is Sarah Addison Allen. She writes magical realism with a heaping spoon of romance and Southern living. However, she is not just a great author, she is also a great person. Read this, from her Facebook page:

A real life GARDEN SPELLS romance for Christmas:

Carl got in touch with my publicist at St. Martin’s Press:

“Ms. Allen’s book Garden Spells has a cute connection in our relationship because it was actually what my girlfriend let me borrow to read during our first “date.” It was her copy of her favorite book, and I enjoyed it as well, so I think there’s some special meaning to the work. I thought I could give her a new, maybe even a first edition of the book, as an early Christmas gift. However, I was wondering if Ms. Allen could personalize the copy, but also write something about me having a question for her, or ‘Aliyyah, Will you marry Carl?’ “


This made me smile, so of course I did it, and wished Carl good luck.

I’m happy to report that Aliyyah said, “Yes.”

How adorable are they??

  1. eBook review request – Fancy Pants PoetryHello Carmen, I found your blog on Book Blogger Directory. I'm promoting my eBook titled Fancy Pants Poetry. Would you consider reviewing it?Cover IMG: http://i.imgur.com/nYupU3z.jpgCover by: Samantha ScafidiThe poetry you'll meet in this collection will be biting, defensive, cynical and sarcastic. Dark humour is used to elaborate upon bleak life outlooks. At many times the spirit in these poems are rooted in antonymous rebellion. All that said, the reader will also encounter various instances synonymous with the proverbial “light at the end of tunnel”.https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23642813-fancy-pants-poetry50 pgsDec 1 2014978-0-9936659-3-6Agostino Scafidi.
