Kimberly Brock/Deep South Magazine Literary Friday Chat

Today is Friday. But Deep South Magazine (@deepsouthmag) calls it Literary Friday. Why? Because Friday is all about either chatting with an author or finding out some literary facts.

Today, Kimberly Brock (@kimberlydbrock) is the author that is being interviewed for Literary Friday. Stop in on Twitter and actively participate with the chat by using the hash tag #southernlit between 1 and 2 CST time. If you can’t make it, check out the facebook page of Deep South Mag. Erin so kindly posts the link to the chat for people to read later.

Psst… A copy of The River Witch will be given away to a lucky person today.


Happy Literary Friday!

The River Witch by Kimberly Brock (June’s She Reads Book Club Selection)

Kimberly Brock has taken the publishing world by storm- her debut novel, The River Witch, is earning high praise from other authors and getting quite a bit of attention from other bloggers.

Kimberly- no stranger to social media (if you follow her on twitter, you’ll see that posts quite a bit and retweets even more) has been promoting her book like crazy. Reaping the awards of good promotion- on June 8th Deep South Magazine will conduct an online chat with her about her book and writing, She Reads has picked The River Witch as their June book selection of the month, and other bloggers have been giving away her book to their followers.  Hallie Sawyer featured a fabulous chat and book giveaway a few days ago with Kimberly Brock

She Reads will be hosting The River Witch as their book club selection for month of June. They will also be giving away fabulous prizes for commenting and joining in the book club.

With all the great publicity for The River Witch, if you have not found a book to read this summer- give this one a look. Find you a cool place to get, a comfortable chair, delicious drink and sit down to enjoy this book.

Upcoming Book Signings….

Excited to hear that 2 of the authors that made the Deep South Magazine’s 2012 Summer Reading list will be coming to book stores nearby for book signings/readings. Kimberly Brock- The River Witch and  Karen White- Sea Change.

Both books have intriguing covers and definitely have my interest for an addition to my summer reading list. As of now, I’m pretty sure I’ll be attending both events (I’m a book nerd- so I love to go to book signings), so check back for pictures and snippets of information from the book signing and readings.

2012 Summer Reading List.

Check the 2012 Summer Reading List for new books to read if you like interesting books or southern lit books. I dare say that the list Erin compiles is some of the best and brightest established authors or debut authors. Enjoy summer reading!
