There will be ample opportunities to learn more about each author and you must not forget to follow them on their social media and blogs to stay connected with them after this party.  They are great authors, indeed, but they are also thoughtful and lovely people.

Without further delay, I'm thrilled to introduce my fellow authors. Here they are as follows in the order that they will make their guest appearance on this website. I'll catch up with you tomorrow, Saturday, December 2nd with more details on the Book Giveaway Contest. Read HERE.

C. E. Clayton was born and raised in Southern California where she worked in the advertising industry for several years on accounts that ranged from fast food, to cars, and video games (her personal favorite). This was before she packed up her life, husband, two displeased cats, and one very confused dog and moved to New Orleans. Now, she is a full time writer, her cats are no longer as displeased, and her dog no longer confused.
