This week we have for our delectation an interview with Jamie Baywood who describes herself as an ‘accidental author’.

Jamie is also giving away a free signed copy of her book, ‘Getting Rooted in New Zealand‘ to one lucky commenter. All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is follow the instructions at the end of this post 🙂

Well it’s time to welcome this weeks guest author on the Thursday Throng and today I’m welcoming Dave Sivers, author of The Scars Beneath the Soul. He is very kindly offering a FREE copy to one lucky commenter too, just leave a comment below to enter the giveaway.

In this week’s Thursday Throng we have a self-confessed ‘thinker’ in our midst. His books so far explore the creative process, philosophy and creative productivity. He also offers a time management programme called Bending Time, which explores the relationship between time and consciousness. Finally, he’s offering one lucky commenter the chance to win a copy of his book, This We Know which sets out to explore two simple questions. What do we really know? And what don’t we know?
This week I’d like to introduce you all to Steven Harz who anthology of stories and poetry, Stories You Can’t Dance To, is featured in the review. When I visited his website I found the following quotes at the top of his About Me page: “If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story” – Orson Welles “Or where you begin it” – Steven Harz. Having read the stories and poems I believe this sums him up wonderfully.
One lucky commenter will also win a PDF copy of Songs You Can’t Dance To. All you need to do is leave a comment for Steven at the end of this post.
