Author Ambitions

Hello my beach friends. Sorry I haven’t been around lately. This week has been rough. I’ve about shaken the cold that held me captive for the first few days this week. I’m much better now.

Today I’m adding something new to my Beach Reads family. Author Ambitions will be a monthly update about authors. If you have a favorite one that isn’t listed, leave a comment. I’ll see if I can find something before next month.

  1. I haven’t read the Richard Paul Evans book, but I don’t care to read Christmas books out of season either.

  2. I’ve been curious about that book but don’t have a copy myself. I have read some very nice holiday books this year, many have been added to my favorites bookshelf!

    Here’s my answer!

    🙂 Wendi

  3. I have some worthy titles to read for Christmas–not hokey.

  4. Hey, thanks for posting about my novel Thicker Than Blood! 🙂
