I love books. I love to hold books, look at books, hoard books, buy too many books, and most importantly read books. I decided one day that instead of letting characters act out the day inside my head, that I would put them down on paper. Thus, the birth of Pressing Flowers, my first self-published novel.

Pressing Flowers Playlist

A lot of people have asked me about my inspiration for 'Pressing Flowers.' I love to listen to music while I write, so I figured I should make a blog post to share the playlist with you. Listen while you read, or after and let the story live longer. Happy reading!

Pressing Flowers by Katie Blanchard
"What a story

From the moment I opened my Kindle to read this book, I knew it was going to be a good one. I laughed, I got upset, and I cried. Grief is hard to handle especially when it is because of a loved one. Thank you so much for the story of Miri" Read more of this review »

"Cathartic

Characters so well developed. Storyline that will touch many people especially those, who like me, have experienced grievous loss. I lost my husband suddenly in a work accident at age 38, my father to a sudden heart attack, and my sister-in-" Read more of this review »
