    Ziffit Review

It’s a way to clear out your old books, CDs, DVDs, games etc. and make money at the same time. You can get it from your phone’s app store for free. It’s top left in the picture below. (Disclaimer: I have not been paid to write this post, nor have I received any free gifts as compensation. It is based on my own personal experience) Ziffit came to my attention because it was…

    Interview: Ghost Hunting With Fiona Glass

    Today on Rock Paper Spirit, I’m welcoming Fiona Glass, author of the paranormal romance novella Got Ghosts?. We’ve come to a beautiful English manor house for this interview, one that is actually from Got Ghosts?. It’s called Greystones Hall and dates back to medieval times. So, as someone who firmly believes that ghosts exist and walk among us, I thought I’d do a spot of ghost hunting. Welcome Fiona! Tell us a bit about this novella. Hi and thanks so much for letting me witter on about myself here – I really appreciate it! Hmm, where do I start? Well, Got Ghosts? is no ordinary ghost story, because the ghosts…

    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. I brought a toaster and added it to the gift pile so I don’t feel like a freeloader. The venue is gorgeous; chandeliers everywhere, wall-to-wall designer outfits and…oh champagne! *takes a glass* Can I tempt you to a canape Jessica? I probably shouldn’t, because I’m struggling to lose these stubborn holiday pounds, but… one won’t hurt. Okay,…

    Romance Author Interview: Valentine’s Masquerade Ball With Atina Atwood

    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?…

    Leger’s Valentine by Lacey Dearie

    Yesterday I broke one of my own rules. It’s a rule I made a few years ago and have never broken until now. I hit publish on a Thursday. For a long time, I’ve felt like I have a “Thursday curse.” My husband used to find it amusing because there was simply no logic involved in this long-held belief. Then he started to noticed that everything in my life that went wrong, happened on a Thursday. Arguments, accidents, bad decisions; they all happened on a Thursday. Now, I wouldn’t say he believes in it too, but he is wary. Since I’ve been so unhappy and unwell recently, I decided to…
