Tennessee Valley Author Event: Spotlight, Interview and Giveaway: Amy Miles

With the Tennessee Valley Author Event looming only days away, I'm spotlighting some of the authors from the event! For those of you who can come to the event this is a great way to get to know a little bit about each of the attending authors ... and for those of you too far away to come, this is a chance to discover new authors and new books that just might be right up your alley! And so, without further ado:

Brandi Kennedy: Amy, welcome to my blog!

Amy Miles: Thank you so much for taking the time to host such a great spotlight feature. I'm sure every TNVAE author is grateful for your efforts!

Brandi Kennedy: Actually, while it has been a good way to help promote the event, I have really loved that the interview series has allowed me to get to know the attending authors, too. Speaking of which, why don't you tell my readers a little bit about yourself?

Amy Miles: My husband and goofball son are my life.

Interesting fact: My husband and I met as pen pals while he was living in England. NO, we didn't "hook" up in a chat room. YES, his accent is awesome!

I've been a carbaholic since birth and am now hopelessly addicted to frozen Cokes. I mix coleslaw into my KFC mashed potatoes, soak cornbread in my milk and never drink from a straw. I'm not a really big chocolate fan (I know, GASP!) and I want to run a marathon by the time I'm thirty-five. Ok, maybe forty. Forty-five???

My vice in life, apart from cupcakes, is Vera Bradley! Why does she have to make such amazing accessories?!?!

I'm a world traveler at heart who loves setting insane goals and working to meet them. I adore attending book signings to meet new friends and am trying to overcome my introvert nature. I spend far too much time on Facebook chatting with fans and have a heart for raising funds to help Action for Autism, a truly amazing St. Louis based organization that helps kids reach their true and unique potential.

When I'm not writing I can be found on the golf course, enjoying the lake life or coming up with some new "urban homesteading" idea to try. My amazing husband is the founder of Red Coat PR so we are always busy!

Brandi Kennedy: So I assume TNVAE is not your first signing by a long shot, then. Are you more of a seasoned pro at this point?

Amy Miles: I've had the pleasure of attending several book signings over the last two years so I am pumped and ready to go for TNVAE. Word of warning ... I love to chat books so if you get me talking you WILL have to stop me. :)

Brandi Kennedy: How many titles do you expect to have available by the time of the event?

Amy Miles: I will have twelve novels out, life willing!

Brandi Kennedy: Wow! And will you be bringing all of your titles to the event?

Amy Miles: Yes.

Brandi Kennedy: Is there a way for fans to contact you, if they wish to order signed copies of books you won't be bringing with you? Or if they won't be able to attend the event but would like to order books anyway?

Amy Miles: I always have my books in stock since I seem to be doing one or two book events every month this year so feel free to hit my up on Facebook and I will get back with you. I'm always on FB. Some people say it's an addiction ... yeah, I kinda agree with them!

Brandi Kennedy: What other forms of social media can readers use to follow you and your writing?

Amy Miles: Facebook, of course. Twitter, LinkedIn, Goodreads, Amazon and my newsletter.Or you can email me at Amy@AmyMilesBooks.com

Brandi Kennedy: Well, I'm really looking forward to meeting you at the Tennessee Valley Author Event, Amy. Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions today.

Amy Miles: Thanks so much for taking the time to do a spotlight for me. I love meeting new friends and can't wait to see everyone at TNVAE! I know it's going to be a blast!

Alright, readers, there you have it! Amy Miles!!
And now, a giveaway!!
