"Three weddings and a food truck on the beach"

 

Ahead of our live Book Club chat with Jan Moran on Tuesday November 22 (find all the details at bingebooks.com/pages/live-author-chat-with-jan-moran) we asked Jan to tell us a bit more about herself and her writing ...

BingeBooks: Where and when do you like to write?

Jan Moran: Mostly afternoons and evening—and almost anywhere with my laptop. Variety keeps me fresh and inspires me, so you might find me in my garden, at the kitchen table, at a coffee shop, or in a library. My faves: Writing near the beach on in the mountains, on airplanes, and in beautiful hotel lobbies. My office is for business, not so much for creativity.

BB: Is there anything - furnishings, art, equipment, etc - you always like to have around you when you write?

Before their live chat for BingeBooks Book Club, on Historical Mystery Day, Thursday September 29, we asked Sara Rosett and Lee Strauss to answer some favorite author questions.

 

BB: Where and when do you like to write?

SR: I use dictation to get a first draft down in the morning. Once it’s transcribed I like to edit the draft in my office, which has bookshelves full of my favorite novels and all my reference books.

LS: Usually afternoons in my sunroom. I take care of business matters in the mornings. I also like to play pickleball three mornings a week, so it's nice to have a flexible schedule.

 

BB: Is there anything - furnishings, art, equipment, etc - you always like to have around you when you write?

SR: I like to have my divided keyboard, which keeps my wrists in alignment s…

Favorite Love Story

A.L. Jackson recommends The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon:

"The Law of Moses is hands-down my favorite book. I have never been quite as affected as I was by this love story. It marked me and I carry it with me always."

My name is Jen Webster, and I am a team member, site curator and pinner extraordinaire for BingeBooks. I also pen the blog The Immersive Bookshelf. My blog’s chief focus is on reviewing my immersive reading experiences.

What is an immersive reading experience you say? Well, let me tell you, it is an experience worth trying. Immersive reading is listening to an audiobook while following along with the book. Whether it be a paperback, hardback, or a digital copy on your e-reader, the results are the same. Pairing a fantastic book with a phenomenal narrator and you have a reading experience that is spectacular!

If you love a book or series, and you get lucky enough to get a great narrator that can truly bring the story to life, you will experience it in a way you never expected to …
