LINDA DICKSON

I’ve spent a lifetime doing what everybody else wanted me to do. Now, I don’t. It’s taken a long time but I’ve found my voice. I love hot-water cornbread and fresh fried corn. I believe in what is real, not what I’d like things to be. I write in a room with the door closed and an electric fan running as to block out all sound but the sound of the voices I wish to record.

Authors of fiction are good at two things. They lie and they steal. Steal from other peoples lives and lie about what happened. I’m good at both those things.

Tale of Storyville only 99c for Kindle

Editor’s Note: CASTLE JULIET is magical, inspirational, and fun to read, but it is also a meaningful and profound book that teaches us the ultimate lesson: the meaning of life.

Book Description: Imagination and immortality are the themes woven throughout Castle Juliet. With Jack and Alice being the best of friends, they discover what it truly means to be children, their relationship to the adult world, and the magical festivities throughout the holidays. Castle Juliet is fun, loving, warm, honest, and magical.

Readers who love Charles Dickens and Roald Dahl will enjoy Castle Juliet

Author’s Inspiration: A close friend of mine showed me the cover of a book with a boy and a girl leaning over a horse corral. You could just see their back sides. She looked at me and said, “This reminds me of us.” And my head exploded with the idea of a ten year old boy and girl, the best of friends, and the adventures they took throughout the year. I wanted this to be a wholesome, fun read, sort of in the vein of Dandelion Wine. A great, warm, summer read that just makes you laugh and cry and feel good in all the right ways.

BRANDON BERNTSON

Depending on the season, I love all kinds of fiction, but mainly the classics. Dickens is a big inspiration, especially during the holidays. But I am not averse to penning the dark tale, the light tale, and everything in between. It’s what you feels that counts, and there is a little bit of truth in everything I write. I reach deep inside and pull out whatever I can find, but only if the feeling is genuine. I start there. I hope to write the kind of books and stories that people never forget and want to read over and over, always seeing something new each time they read them. I want to do more than just entertain you. I want to inspire, uplift, and make you see things in a different light

Book Description: After graduate school at Florida State, hip young professor Oliver Hardin returns to Satilla County, GA, with high expectations for the good life among homefolks: “Cock-a-doodle-do.

The pork is on the pit, and the chicks are on the way.” Then, in the year he is up for tenure at Georgia Southeastern College, storm clouds gather.

Jackie Weger

I’ve been writing romance novels off and on for thirty years. It always excites me to sit at my keyboard and meet the characters in my books for the first time. I enjoy writing about ordinary people coping with difficulties. I find the ordinary person–man,woman or child is honest, often owns a quiet dignity and hopes to do the right thing as he or she struggles to make the best choices. I relate to that and I hope my readers do.

Humorous and Poignant Holiday Tales

Editor’s Note: WISE MEN AND OTHER STORIES is full of insights and also full of humor. The short essays make for quick reads that will brighten the holidays for anyone.

Book Description: The subtitle of the book says it all: “Lessons from the Holidays About Santa, God, Heaven, Death, and More Fun Stuff from Someone Who Still Has a Lot to Learn.” It’s a collection of short essays about lessons learned from various holiday experiences, told with a good deal of self-deprecating good humor. 

Author’s Inspiration: My inspiration was the experience of being cast as a “wise men” in the school play when I was in the second grade. A “poor” boy from the class was also cast as a wise man. (I later learned that everybody in my class, including me, was poor. But he had even less than the rest of us.) So the book started with lessons learned from a school play and went on to include other lessons from the holidays.
