All this week I will be featuring 3 Wonderful ladies, that I will call “The Pretty Little Writers” (Melissa Brown, Maggi Myers & Andrea Randall). I will be posting different information about ALL 3 LADIES and their books this week. They have all provided me with some really great things to share with you!

GIVEAWAY IS POSTED ON THE BOTTOM OF EACH OF THE AUTHOR PAGES (LINKS ABOVE).
So, let me start off by introducing “The Pretty Little Writers”
(Melissa, Maggi & Andrea)
Again, I am able to start on a little personal note, I was fortunate enough to also meet both Melissa and Andrea in Chicago! Unfortunately, although Maggi was there too, I did not meet her (yet), I look forward to that happening in Boston!
Melissa was one of the organizers of the TFEIC Event. While I was anxiously awaiting the TFEIC I noticed that she had released her first book “Bouquet Toss” so I had made up a page in my scrapbook for her to sign figuring I might see here there. I will always remember the surprise on her face and the genuine appreciate she had for me asking her to sign my scrapbook.
While I attended the Meet and Greet, I was able to talk to Andrea a little bit about her book that she had just released….I had already marked it as to read, so it was definitely one of those pleasant surprises to meet her and have her sign in my scrapbook also. I also wanted to let you know that Andrea is also giving back…….This month she is donating 25% of her sales to Veteran’s For Peace Chapter 41. More info can be found on andrearandall.com.
ABOUT MELISSA (taken from Melissa’s website):
I am a writer and stay-at-home Mom living in the Chicago suburbs with my husband and two young children. I love books—everything about them. I love reading them, being surrounded by them in bookstores and libraries, and most recently, writing some of my own.
“Bouquet Toss” is available as an e-book and in paperback. It is a story that is very close to my heart, one that was very cathartic to write and has opened me up to all sorts of writing possibilities. I truly hope you will enjoy it.
“Champagne Toast” was just released – It is the follow-up to “Bouquet Toss”.
I also love to bake. Cake truffles, cupcakes, homemade fudge and bark, cookies and whoopie pies are some of my favorites to make. I enjoy making creative gifts for friends, family and my kids’ teachers. I’m excited to share my baking adventures with you.
And finally, I must admit, I am wild for actor Henry Cavill. He makes me swoon like no other celebrity can. I love reading his interviews and admiring him in photos. I can’t wait for Man of Steel to open on my birthday next summer!
Magnolia, that’s me! My given name is actually Maggi. When I was a baby my wonderful and wise Gran baptized me “Magnolia Blossom” in her kitchen sink. She didn’t take too kindly to the fact that my heathen parents skipped over my christening, endangering my mortal soul. So moving forward from the day of my re-birth, Magnolia became my nickname. Ta-da!
I was born in West Des Moines, Iowa and raised in Miami, Florida. I now reside in Greensboro, North Carolina but have lived in Colorado, Wyoming and Texas. My family is in Iowa and I love to visit there. Yes, I said I love to visit Iowa. Why are you staring?
I strive to be a wallflower and lead the most vanilla life possible. So far, that hasn’t worked out well for me. I have quite a bit of ornery in me and as hard as I try not to cause trouble, I do. I appear rather unassuming and non-threatening which works to my advantage when the s**t hits the fan. “It was her? No way, she looks so sweet!” I have a innocent face and a devious side; troublesome combination. This past year, I decided to put some of that ornery to good use; I started writing a book. I began writing as a child and much to my parents chagrin, wrote about the dark and heavy bits of life. I got away from writing when I became the parent of 2 special needs children, thinking that I didn’t have time anymore and my “hobby” had run it’s course. Beginning again, I can’t believe I ever gave it up. Here within these pages is the journey to being published. Pull up a chair and stay for a while.
25% of Andrea’s sales in January are going to Veteran’s For Peace Chapter 41.
