Q&A with... Jennifer Yacovissi!!!

1. Tell us about your release. Give us a blurb to tease us! Up the Hill to Home is my debut novel, which was just released by Apprentice House Press of Loyola University on 28 April 2015. Foreword Reviews magazine selected it as one of eight debut novels to be featured in their Summer 2015 issue, which is being distributed at BookExpo America, the American Library Association 2015 annual conference, and the Beijing International Book Festival. Foreword calls it “an emotionally powerful, gorgeously imparted family saga.” Favorable reviews have also arrived from Kirkus.  RRT reviewed my book as a Perfect Ten. Here’s a teaser: Every town, every city, is built by everyday people, and Washington, D.C. is no exception. Anonymous, hard-working women and men form the backbone of the place their families call home: strong women like Mary Miller, who held her family together during the Civil War; Emma Beck, an inventor, career woman, and devoted mother; and Lillie V

Guest Blog from Kat Martin and a Book Giveaway of AGAINST THE TIDE

HOW I GOT PUBLISHED      May 26 th marks the release of the twelfth novel in my Against Series-- AGAINST THE TIDE, Rafe Brodie and Olivia Chandlers' story, the third in my Brodies of Alaska.         After writing for so many years, it's almost hard to remember how difficult it was getting my early books sold.   I’m sure every author has an interesting tale of how he or she got published.   In my case, my husband Larry had written an historical novel titled Shadow of the Mast set in early California, but he couldn’t find a publisher.   I loved the book, which was extremely moving and very romantic.        Since I was a voracious reader and adored the book, I couldn’t understand why publishers weren’t snapping it up.   (I still have no clue as to how New York publishers actually think.)      I decided to see if maybe there was something I could do to polish it a little, maybe help it sell.   By the time I was finished, I was hooked on the idea of writ
