By Maureen Bonatch: What Will They Say About You?
I like to think we’re leaving an impression behind us every day, and not just after we’re gone. That what we do, and how we treat others, will be how we’re remembered. Authors might have a little of an advantage in that we can leave a little bit of ourselves in our stories, or share some of our personal journey through life on our blogs, although this depends on just how much we want to share with our readers.

This tour reminded me to be mindful of how routine interactions each day could leave a lifelong impression. Of how our stories, both in reality and fiction, can live on in other’s lives.

I don’t anticipate people wanting to tromp through my home one day and discuss the mundane details of my life, or peer into my writing room and try to make sense of my mind from the material articles I’ve left behind. But I can only hope that by being true to my heart and passions, and good to those around me, that the impression I leave is a good one and that perhaps one day I’ll inspire others to follow their dreams too.

What Do You Hope People Will Say About You?

Maureen Bonatch grew up in small town Pennsylvania and her love of the four seasons—hockey, biking, sweat pants and hibernation—keeps her there.
Limecello: Ask Me Anything 2.0
Hi friends! Today’s post is on a whim. Yes, the topic is right and true. You can ask me anything. It’s inspired by a conversation I had at RWA. Jamie Beck told me I did something nice – and to be honest I’m still not entirely convinced she meant me – and that she isn’t confusing me with someone else … but it was really nice to hear, so <3. ANYWAY ideally, this is a time for you to ask anything book related. Blogging, guest posting, reviews, so on. I promise to answer any question you might have about it. “The industry.” Of course, we all understand the answers are all just from my experience/my opinion. I also invite anyone else to chime in with their own answers too! 🙂 You can feel free to ask me a question about anything else as well … but I reserve the right to not answer that. You can also check out previous instances of “AMA ALBTALBS Style.

Happy weekend, and start firing off those questions!

You Can Bet Your Bottom Dollar I Did My Research
by Tracy L. Ward
If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say, “Canadian history just isn’t that interesting,” I could retire a very wealthy woman. It seems, in comparison to the oft romanticized aspects of American history (a rebellion for liberty from British rule, a civil war to free the enslaved and multiple presidential assassinations) any history Canadians have been a part of feels downright yawn worthy.
