    Cute, Cool or Quirky Mother’s Day Gifts

    The last couple of days have felt like spring here in Scotland, so I’ve started thinking about spring holidays. Here in the UK, Mother’s Day is just around the corner as we celebrate it in March. I’ve started looking around for cool Mother’s Day gifts that aren’t the usual, unimaginative rubbish. I know, I know, candles, cushions, flowers and wine are universally loved by all women (except me) who have given birth – according to those who work in retail and prepare the Mother’s Day promotions. I know I would appreciate something with a little more thought though. Here are a few suggestions for cute, cool or quirky Mother’s Day…

    Author Interview: Wedding Crashing With Jessica Goodwin

    It’s February, spring is just around the corner and love is in the air! So, what better way to interview my next guest on Rock Paper Spirit than by crashing a wedding! I’m here with romance author Jessica Goodwin at the most glamorous society wedding you could imagine to do some writing research.

    Today on Rock Paper Spirit, I’m welcoming romance writer, Atina Atwood, author of the Holiday Heartbeats series.

We’re at a masquerade ball, people watching and observing all the couples falling head over heels in love. Isn’t it sweet? Atina, welcome to the blog! I love your mask!  Thank you so much! I’m not necessarily one with off-the-runway fashion sense, but I’m really digging the whole midnight black, silver, and sparkling crystal thing going on here. Why don’t you tell me a little bit about your latest book?…

    Interview: Hunting For Magic Treasure With Author Dianna Gunn

    Today, I’m on a quest to find a magic crown. I haven’t lost it, this is going somewhere. I’m interviewing Dianna Gunn, a fantasy author who has just released a new book, Moonshadow’s Guardian. Since she’s a fantasy author, I’m hoping she’ll know how to deal with all the weird creatures I might encounter on this quest. Dianna, welcome to Rock Paper Spirit! What’s the best way to deal with an angry dragon? Rolf, the dragon in Moonshadow’s Guardian, is anything but angry, so I’m not quite sure. But if I had to guess, it would involve hiding. In stone structures, because fire breathing dragon + wooden building = pile…
