Meet our Book Club Bloggers
Chick Lit is Not Dead
Tiernan McKay was raised in Southern California but now lives in the Rocky Mountain foothills just outside of Denver.
She is a homeschooling mom of three who believes that books are absolutely essential to education (both formal and informal) and sanity in general.
When she's not reading, riding a horse, educating her kids or looking at her hubby with googly eyes, she may be helping one of her neighbor's write their memoirs (seriously).
Tiernan shares her thoughts about life and the books she's reading on her blog at tiernanmckay.blogspot.com.
Romancing the Book
Jen is the fearless leader behind Romancing the Book. The site started out in 2007 as a simple review site where Jen and her best friend talked about the books they read. But when they started interviewing authors, the blog took off and they never looked back. These days they are sought out by new authors as well as best sellers to help promote their newest releases through interviews, guest posts, contests and reviews. These days Jen does very little reviewing as she coordinates the blogs guests and manages a review staff of over 20 reviewers from across the globe with varied tastes in books... but all with a love of romance. Visit Romancing the Book at http://www.romancing-the-book.com or follow them at @RtBBlog or on Facebook.
Chick Lit is Not DeaD
Booking Mama is a stay-at-home mother of two whose passion (besides her family) is books.
She's an avid reader who enjoys all types of books, although she mainly reads fiction. In addition to books, she also loves to crochet, knit, scrapbook and cook.
The ultimate luxury for blogger Vera is curling up with a good book and a warm blanket.
The next best thing, she says, is reviewing books and sharing them with others. She does book reviews and giveaways and even suggests other books you might like.
