Synopsis: Isabel Bandeira joins us for a live show from Short Stories Bookshop and Community Hub in Madison, NJ, where she discusses her debut novel, Bookishly Ever After and the follow-up, Dramatically Ever After. She also talks about positive representation in books, her cat-and-mouse publishing journey, and balancing a day job with the demands of a writing career.
And stay tuned to the end for a special greeting from a tiny fan (my kid).
Thanks to Short Stories for hosting us and in case you hadn’t noticed, the books discussed are not linked this week. I did that to encourage you to seek out your favorite/closest independent bookstore to buy them. Saturday, April 29th is Independent Bookstore Day, so support your favorite shop and buy local!
