Special Announcement: Join Us and These Amazing Authors for Our Three Year Blogiversary Blowout!!!

It’s really kind of hard to believe that we’re celebrating our 3rd blogiversary. For those of you who don’t know it started out with just me, but I quickly realized that in order to have the kind of blog I really wanted I would need others who were like minded. So I began building a team, and what a team I have. Their dedication to finding books and authors they believe in matches my own, and really that’s what our focus has always been and will continue to be. One of my goals with this blog was to find ways to support books/authors beyond a review, a cover reveal, an occasional guest post, and all modesty aside…I think we do that and do it very well.

I also wanted this to be a fun place for people to visit, and I sincerely hope that YOU…our readers, our supporters, our followers find that to be the case. There are so many book blogs for you to choose from, so when you choose to click one of our links, or when you enjoyed a post and clicked on one of the share buttons, or left a comment, or tweeted/retweeted on Twitter, liked/shared on Facebook?!? Well, that lets us know that all the time and effort we put into Bookish Temptations is absolutely worth it. Thank you!

To the many authors who have worked with us, who have given us guest posts…not just this year but over the past three I want to tell you something. We never, ever take you for granted. We still fangirl when you say yes to a request to appear on our blog. We appreciate the time you take, the giveaways you offer, the links you provide on social media and your website…every single time. Thank you!

Now I know that some of you didn’t come here to read a speech…you just want to know the good stuff. Am I right?!? 😉

Ok then…here you go. It’s with great pleasure that I share the authors who will be joining us as we celebrate our third year…

Hollywood in Fiction: A discussion between authors Morgan and Jennifer Locklear and Alexandra Richland

For those of you unfamiliar with these authors, they have written books set against the backdrop of Hollywood.

Alexandra Richland spends rotating twelve-hour shifts working as a registered nurse at a Toronto hospital, indulging in her love of science and medicine and caring for patients with their own unique tales to tell. 

When she is not on duty, Alexandra escapes into her own imagination. Therein lies a fantasy world of thrilling adventure, gorgeous men, classic Hollywood glamour, exotic getaways, and a seductive dose of romance. Alexandra captures these stories in her popular novels, The Starlight Trilogy and Frontline, her novella, Slip Away, and her short story, Gilded Cage. 

****

Morgan and Jennifer Locklear met in 1989 as teenagers and became high school sweethearts.  They have been married since 1995 and live in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States with their two children, a son and daughter.

Although both enjoyed creative writing in their youth, they have only been working as a writing team since 2010. Since then they have created a dozen full-length and short stories together.

Jennifer has been employed in fundraising and development for a non-profit organization since 2000. She also enjoys participating in charitable activities, both locally and online. In her (limited) free time she is an avid reader.

Morgan has been employed in the hospitality industry since 1998. He has been active in the local performing arts community since childhood with many acting and directing credits to his name. He is also a musician and songwriter and has recorded 6 albums.
