Welcome to the Bold Strokes Books Authors Blog!

I am not an author, but I am an avid fan who wants to know what’s going on with the BSB authors and interact with them so I created this site. I am hoping that other fans of BSB authors want this too. This forum is all about fun, getting to know the authors and asking your favorite author questions you’d like answered. You’ll get to see at least one author blog a week, and maybe more if we’re lucky.  Every few weeks I will randomly draw a comment posted and that person will win a Bold Strokes title of their choice.

To give you an idea of what I envision this site to be about, I just finished Water Mark by JM Redmann (see excerpt under this month’s book excerpts). JM uses New Orleans as a character. So it got me thinking about Greg Herren (Vieux Carré Voodoo) and Ali Vali (The Devil Be Damned) who also use this setting as a character. All of them do such a great job of giving us a rich exciting picture of the city. They also have  shown us graphically what Hurricane Katrina has done to New Orleans. They gave New Orleans its own voice through their books. So I want to know more about using setting as a character. How hard is it to do? When does an author choose to go this route? Maybe we’ll see one of these authors blogging their response. I hope so!

So for now, let’s hear from the authors and from you. Tell us what you want the authors to blog about.

And most of all, let’s have fun!

    Hi Kathi!

    I very much HEART the idea of a BSB Author blog. ❤ I know I'm awful at keeping up with emails *hangs head in shame* but blogging is right up my alley!!

    I answered your author-question in my personal blog (http://www.merryshannon.com/blog/) as it relates to my own stories — thanks so much for the inspiration! Hope you'll keep posting discussion topics like this, I like mulling over them. 🙂

      Why don’t we post it here too?

      I wish you would post it here too – since the day still has only 24 hrs , I can’t possibly keep track of all personal websites and blogs

        I think Kathi’s working on adding me as an author to this blog so I can post it here. 🙂 Though if that doesn’t work she’s welcome to copy-paste it here if she wants too, that’s cool by me!
