Laura Roppe Actually, Kindle Love Stories is going very well. I've really enjoyed being a part of it, it's so much fun. I had already published a book before hosting the show (but my real occupation is singer and songwriter). My first book was non-fiction, a memoir with strong romantic elements. And everyone always told me I absolutely had to write fiction. Then, for some reason, talking to people about books every week, and especially after reading The Fault in Our Stars (literally one of my all-time favorite books along with The Book Thief), I started to know the story I had to tell. And since I'm a singer-songwriter by profession, I wrote songs for the book, too (because my characters are singer-songwriters). I thought of you because of how cute and heartfelt you are and how adorable you are and how you read the kind of books I read, too. It's coming out May 13. And you? How are you? I think I told you when we got to talk that you always made me want to hug you. P.S. Was your hair always blue, or do you change it up? I love it! Don't remember it being blue. XO L

Brigid ✩ Cool Ninja Sharpshooter ✩ Hi Laura! It's so nice to hear from you! How is Kindle Love Stories going? That's awesome about your book ... When is it coming out?
