A Note:


I once told myself: IF I am accepted into grad school, this blog would no longer be updated. As it turns out, in April, I received news of my acceptance for the Fall 2013 semester, where I will attain a Master's degree of Science in Nutrition.

Running a blog, as many of you may already know, is a demanding side job once the excitement wears off. And once I fell out of the blogging community's loop (have you SEEN how many blogs there are now? Wow!), it was like the kiss of death. Despite my best efforts, I couldn't get into a blogging routine once this happened due to the disconnect I felt from the community.

So I took a break. I struggled with the loss and with missing my blog. And then I realized I didn't have to run Book Faery to still be a book reviewer; I could read my books and post reviews online. I'm still a book review blogger, just not in the traditional sense.

I'll still be online. You can chat with me on Twitter, where I'll be posting links to my reviews and talking books. I'll also be posting links to nutrition articles. And if you'd like to connect with me where I guarantee I will post reviews, just add me as a friend on Goodreads.

So that's all, folks! It's been a fun and amazing journey, and I thank you all for listening to my thoughts about books. I hope we all can keep in touch elsewhere :)

AAD NOLA Author Spotlight: Megan Grooms

Thank you for letting me guest post.  I'm so excited about AAD. This is my third year going and first year as a featured author. I have one full length book out right now called Finding Samantha. This was released last year around this time. I had hoped to have the second one releasing now however life has gotten in the way as I had my son in January and we are working on our house so we can sell it. The second book in the Rolling Hills Ranch series follows John, it's called Loving Allison. It's about halfway written I just have not had time to do the other half. This book is about John, who we have already had the pleasure of meeting in the first book and his sisters best friend. When his sister comes to visits and brings along Allison. John isn't sure he should give in to his feelings for Allison because it's his sisters best friend. He also knows they are only there for a visit and can't stand the thought of her leaving him after such a short time. John is one of my favorite characters that I have created. He's so lovable like a big teddy bear and he's so sweet.

My plan is to do Jo's story after that and I've already written some on his as well. I also have some young adult books that I am trying to polish up and send to my publisher. I've got so many people running around in my head sometimes I feel a little crazy and they get restless when I'm not writing. I once tried to explain that  I have a lot of people talking to me in my head at once and he thought I was crazy. We went to a book signing of one of my favorite authors and she said the same thing. My husband just looked at me, laughed, and said OK these are your people.

My short stories are Handsome Stranger, Hestia's vacation and Halloween Madness. Hestia's Vacation is in a anthology with four other authors who are absolutely amazing! All three short stories are at All Romance ebooks and Hestia's Vacation is available to buy as a book on the kindle with the other books. It's in Love's Immortal Pantheon Vol. 5. Each one is a short romance but hopefully you will be able to to connect with the characters in it as well as I have. Writing short stories was a challenge for me because I get so hooked on the people I create I usually don't want to let them go, that's why most of my books will be in series.

Anyone can go to my website and check out all the books and read short excerpts from them. You can also learn more about me or ask me any questions you may have.   I can't wait to meet all of you at AAD and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as  I have the last two years.
