Welcome to Insta-Bloom Week with the Tall Poppy Writers #tallpoppywriters #instabloomweek

I’m BEYOND excited to join the Tall Poppy collective today as one of the featured “bookstagrammers” for insta-bloom week! I’ll be on Instagram and Facebook today talking books and bookstagram!

If you’re already “In Bloom”, I’m preaching to the choir when I rave about these authors! You don’t need me to tell you how kind, warm, funny and talented these women are.

If you’re new to the group, I can guarantee you will love the incredible reader community they have built – over 9,000 strong in their Facebook group!

Each week a different Tall Poppy takes over and we, readers are invited into their homes and lives in a truly intimate and personal way. It’s a unique and welcoming place like no other I’ve seen.

Susan Meissner, Kathryn Craft, Amy Impellizzeri and Sonja Yoerg were among the first Tall Poppy authors I discovered. Kathryn’s incredible book THE FAR END OF HAPPY will forever have a spot in my top ten favorite books. When I first read Amy’s LEMONGRASS HOPE, I discovered how an author can throw in a twist that will blow your mind! Sonja is an incredible wordsmith and THE MIDDLE OF SOMEWHERE is a beautiful tribute to hiking, personal redemption and the outdoors. I have had the privilege of meeting Susan Meissner several times as we both live in Southern California and she is my go-to for all things historical fiction! I recently read her backlist title A FALL OF MARIGOLDS, another dual timeline story that has stolen my heart. I also got to meet the lovely Kristy Woodson Harvey this year, she’s as classy and talented as you’d think. SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE is the first in a series of perfect “beach reads” that will have you sipping sweet tea and enjoying the juicy drama at Peachtree Bluff!

  1. Love this, Jamie! And the lovely Julie Perkins Cantrell is a Tall Poppy Writer as well. So is Patti Callahan Henry. Tina Anne Forkner invited me to appear on Boom’s FB page when Little Tea released, and it was the best experience, ever! All an extremely great group of authors. I’m so pleased to learn of your involvement!
