Author Q & A, Interviews

Lightning Round w/ K.A. Tucker

Hello fellow readers and welcome to my favorite segment, Lightning Round! I’ve realized with the growing community of book reviews and related content posts that it’s difficult to fit in reading all of the things we want to. After brainstorming in an effort to connect readers with authors in a more personal way, I came up with the idea for these “bullet interviews”-think more of a get to know the person who’s writing the book rather than us trying to sell you a piece of merchandise. It’s a fun, fast segment, similar to the templates you currently see in Instagram stories. Today’s guest is Kathleen Tucker, author of The Simple Wild, out today! You can purchase your copy on Amazon HERE. (If you missed my review on Goodreads you can find it HERE).  Please join me in giving Kathleen a warm welcome and come chuckle along with me at her fabulous answers to my ridiculous questions. 😉
