January is YA Radio month on A Book and a Chat, with special guest throughout the month, not only authors but bloggers as well.

Today’s guest on a book and a chat was author Heidi R Kling, whose book “SEA” comes out in June. While I knew a large number of people wanted to listen and talk to Heidi little did I know just how many.

The show was full of questions either from the chat room or from people dialing in. Be it half asleep bloggers, family members, fellow writers or a neighbor Heidi had not spoken to for many years, all wanted to chat to and ask question of the fabulous author.

My guest on today’s YA MONTH – “A Book and a Chat” was one of the YA bloggers I call the Sham-wow of Young Adult LiteratureTirzah who writes in the blog “The Compulsive Reader”.

The show as normal was full of interest and entertainment and Tirzah shared with us how her love of reading had lead her to produce not only her blog, but reviews and book trailers amongst other items. In fact there seems no stopping her. With over a thousand book, I’m sure she’ll have her own library soon.

Many interesting questions were put to Tirzah from people in the chat room, to which she supplied some really interesting answers.

During the show we learned about her favorite books both ones she reads as “comfort books” as well as sharing with us not only her most enjoyed books of 2009 along with some she is looking forward to reading in 2010. We also found out that Tirzah would have loved to have been around in the early twentieth century, chaining herself to railings and shouting “votes for women”.

January is YA Radio month on A Book and a Chat, with special guest throughout the month.

My guest on today’s YA MONTH – “A Book and a Chat” was BREE DESPAIN author of “THE DARK DIVINE” which had it’s launch party just a few days ago.

Like all good times when you are enjoying yourself, this one hour special just seemed to fly by, being both a fun and educational sixty minutes.

During the show we learned about how life and directed Bree along the various byways to find her true calling of producing, this her first, but certainly not her last novel.

The Dark Divine has received rave reviews about her book full of suspense and mystery, characters with unexpected depths, a romantic plot yet with twists and turns that keep the reader wanting to turn the page. And all the time as the tension continues to build you’ll learn more about the supernatural elements and the creatures in this fantastic YA novel.

Bree shared with us her experiences from her writing and having Egmont as a publisher, to her book launch where King’s English Bookshop or TKE in Salt Lake City, where so many people turned up it was standing room only, how some people even had “Dark Divine” t-shirts. the book stored which actually “asked” if they could host the book launch, and despite extra copies of the book sold out on that day. They even baked special purple halfmoon cookies for the event.

During the show Bree divulged the writing of a second and possibly a third novel about the more in the lives of the Divine family as they deal with their problem and Grace and Daniel learn to accept and cope with the differences between them.

And why does Bree dream about large lumps of cheese covered in honey?
