Journal Jabber Moving to New Time

Journal Jabber New TimeBig News!

Journal Jabber, the weekly Blogtalk radio show “that’s by authors, for authors and about authors and all the things we authors care about” is moving to a new time!  The old Tuesday night at 8 p.m. shows are so last year – they ended with Robin Wiesneth’s interview on Dec. 31.

The new, Sunday afternoon schedule kicks off this weekend, Jan. 19 at 2 p.m. central, with Journal Jabber alumni Frank W. Smith talking about his new book, Night Song, the second book in the Wolf Song trilogy.  Tomorrow Frank will be on the blog with an interview and some inside details about his brand new book.

Time zones can be confusing, convert safely with this handy Journal Jabber time zone conversion chart and I’ll jabber with you this Sunday…

Robin Wiesneth is Telling Tales on Journal Jabber!

jj 1Listen in to the last show of the year!

Tonight’s guest is Robin Wiesneth, highly acclaimed author of whimsical paintings that are fine art that makes you giggle and most recently, author of the new children’s book, Tails of Imagination.

Whether you keep up with her on her blog, A Brushjj 6 With Humor or find her new website, Tails of Imagination, Robin is worth hunting for.

As warm, wonderful and whimsical as her paintings… do the children you know a favor (and the secret child inside you) and get some Tails of Imagination into your life. And if all that weren’t awesome enough already, she has some giveaways and free days coming up too!

Here’s my silly rhyme for Robin:

Her trailer’s on Youtube, her tweets are on Twitter

Her Facebook page and her profile are better than sweet apple fritters.

I like her Link’d In, her Google+ I adore.

When you say “Robin Wiesneth” I say “Give us more!”

And I’m done.  You follow the links and I’ll let Robin take it from here ;p

R.A. Giggie, author of Stella’s Plea on JournalJabber

JJ StellaListen in!  Tonight we have a brilliant new author with a talent for telling stories that both terrify and inspire.  Tune in to meet R.A. Giggie as she tells of the divine inspirations and asperations she has from and for her debut novel, Stella’s Plea.

From Amazon: R.A. Giggie was born in a small community in Quebec. She later moved to New Brunswick and has since made it her home. She’s a wife, mother, and grandmother. While her husband is an avid outdoors-man, she’s more a “homebody” and prefers to write stories.

She’s the author of Stella’s Plea (Nov 2012), a Christian suspense about the abduction of a deaf little girl and her mother’s struggle to find her. She’s currently working on a court drama.

Writing is her passion though she works full-time outside the home, but looks forward tojj Renee the day when she can make a living out of writing. Her favourite genres are Christian suspense, historical and Amish. However she’s always opened to new authors.

You can find her book on AmazonTwitterFacebook or on her blog.

As always, the show is sponsored by The Eyes for Editing.


The Christmas Lites trio 2Listen Here!

I am so excited about tonight’s show, the amazing and ever wonderful creator of Journal Jabber is coming on to talk about Christmas Lites III, the yearly anthology project that raises money for the National Coalition for Domestic Violence (NCADV),

Today, Nov. 26, is also the official cover reveal for the book.  The cover is a phenomenal bit of eye candy created by Kyra Cato and it perfectly represents the spirit of the book – a little house has withstood the long, lonely night and remains to greet the dawn.

Many of the woman this book was written for are still enduring their long dark nights, thinking they are alone.  The writers that unite behind Amy Eye every year to contribute to this worthy project do it to try to help bring the sunrise and shed new lite into old lives.  There are few things brighter than Christmas Lites.

With inside graphics by Crystal Bozeman Clifton, compiled and edited by Amy Eye and a list of authors that would make a librairian drool… this is a gift that gives to all involved.

We hope you enjoy the show, but even more we hope that you will take the time to shed some Lite into a dark life and purchase his book to support NCADV and share the magic with your family and friends.
