Kimberley Carter Spivey wants to help you “Bloom”

Do you feel a constant tug on your heart to go after your goals? Do you feel a constant tug at your heart telling you that you were meant for more?

If so, Kimberley Carter Spivey wrote her new book for you.

Bloom: How to Get from Good Enough to a Life You Love is part memoir, part self-help, and Kimberley wrote this book to help you make the life of your dreams a reality.

Kimberley is the woman behind the blog Girl, You Write and as she juggles marriage and motherhood with a writing career and a day job, she certainly knows what it takes to go after goals. It’s her go-getter attitude that made her See Jane Write Member of the Month back in September 2019. And now the See Jane Write community can’t wait to dive into her new book.


Author Q&A with A.S. Mackey

As a Christian, I strive to have childlike faith in God, but the book The Edge of Everywhen by A.S. Mackey reminds me that sometimes even children can struggle to believe in the goodness of God when times are tough. But this novel offers a message of hope that will prove particularly poignant for writers and readers who believe words can change lives.


How to Read More in 2020

Stephen King once said, “If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”

We writers know that reading is one of the best ways to improve our craft, yet we often fail to make the time to do it. Frankly, many of us even fail to make the time to write!

But reading can benefit us in more ways than we know and making time to read may be easier than we think.


Member of the Month: C.J. Wade

The See Jane Write book club See Jane Read is back and this month we’re reading the novel The Morning After by C.J. Wade. C.J. is also the See Jane Write Member of the Month for July 2019 — and not simply because we’re reading her book this month.

C.J. is a powerhouse of a woman — a Jane of all trades and a master of many. She’s an author, blogger, teacher, dancer, and massage therapist! She’s also one of the kindest and most compassionate people you will ever meet.

If you’re in the Birmingham area, you can see for yourself when you meet her at our book discussion, set for Tuesday, July 23 at 6:30 p.m. CT at the Panera Bread located at 521 Fieldstown Road in Gardendale. You can RSVP here.

If you’re not in Birmingham, don’t fret. We’ll be having an online discussion of the book throughout the month here.

Read on to learn more about C.J. and more about The Morning After.
