Author event and giveaway: Kimberly Brock
I first met Kimberly Brock on Twitter, so I was really excited when she told me she was coming to Fiction Addiction for a signing and I made plans to be there. Kimberly is from north Georgia and is full of Southern charm. She brought delicious, homemade pumpkin bread to the event. She said pumpkin bread relates to her book, The River Witch, and she will have the recipe plus a playlist on her website. (A song by Anna Kline and the Grits Soul Band inspired her as she was working on her final manuscript and the band will be joining her on a few stops of her tour!)
Kimberly said her book is being sold as women’s fiction but she thinks it’s literary fiction. Whatever it is, it’s getting lots of attention from the likes of The Huffington Post, the Pulpwood Queens, She Reads, and some others!
The first part of The River Witch was written five years ago and then set aside. Kimberly wrote two manuscripts and had a baby before she came back and finished it. She is currently working on another Southern mystical novel.
Kimberly has a degree in theater and worked with severe special needs kids before she had children. She’s married with three kids and is currently a stay at home mom.
About the book:
Broken in body and spirit, she secludes herself in the mystical wilderness of a Georgia island. Can she find herself in the sweetness of old songs, old ways, and the gentle magic of the river people?
