We’re Talking ‘Stationery Love’ at Jera’s Jamboree!

Are you a bit of a stationery addict? We are…! 🙂

So Ron and I were delighted to be invited back to the wonderful world of  Jera’s Jamboree – with a brand new interview for Shaz’s Stationery Love feature!

To read our interview – and ogle at our photos of quills, wax sticks and seals, and more stationery treasures – please visit Shaz’s blog via this link.

We hope you enjoy it! Why not have a mooch around Jera’s Jamboree while you’re there? 🙂 Shaz has reviewed plenty of books to whet your appetite!

Oh, one last thing … the word count for the first draft of Lazuli Portals 3 has finally crept past 74,000, so the end edges ever closer! (Eek!) At the moment I’ve stopped writing in order to review all the ideas I still have, and all the loose ends that need to be resolved….!

Have a wonderful day!

A Q&A: Joanna & Ron at Jera’s Jamboree

We love visiting Shaz over at Jera’s Jamboree! It’s a great blog – filled with book reviews, photos, interviews, and giveaways.

Jera's Jamboree

Shaz invited us to take part in a Q&A – how could we refuse!?

Pop over to her blog now to discover our answers to the following questions, and much more:

If you could choose to be one of your characters in your book/books which would you be? and why?

Does your book tackle a social barrier? ie bullying, sexuality, internet stalking. How have you incorporated it into the story?  

Which authors have influenced your writing?

Here’s the link to the post. We look forward to seeing you there!
