12 Authors * 12 Days * 12 E-book giveaway.
For my part on the hop I get to host Wade Kelly and I couldn't be more excited!
Real, Raw and Riveting is Kelly's tagline and it couldn't be more accurate. I love her work and how she incorporates real life issues in her stories with three dimensional, perfectly flawed characters. I'm excited to be on a panel with Wade Kelly and Morticia Knight at GRL this year so, if you're attending, be sure to make time to attend our panel.

Did I mention our 12 Question Q&A? Well, here's Wade's...
Alexa question/ Wade – When you write, do your characters hijack the story, or do you keep a tight grip on the reins? The characters hijack things for sure!
Great answers Wade, I'll be interested to read everyone else's over the next 12 days.

Tam's Review of Back Off! That's My Jock
Wade Kelly lives and writes in conservative, small-town America on the east coast where it’s not easy to live free and open in one's beliefs. Wade writes passionately about controversial issues and strives to make a difference by making people think. Wade does not have a background in writing or philosophy, but still draws from personal experience to ponder contentious subjects on paper. There is a lot of pain in the world and people need hope. When not writing, she is thinking about writing, and more than likely scribbling ideas on sticky notes in the car while playing "taxi driver" for her children. She likes snakes, can’t spell, and has a tendency to make people cry.
