with Aaron M. Ritchey!

 *Snoopy Dance* Yay!!! I am so ecstatic to welcome Aaron back to The Book Tart! We met a few years ago and I love his storytelling, dark, sardonic and shot though with hope.

Interview with author Aaron Michael Ritchey + a giveaway!

The Never Prayer  by Aaron Michael RitcheyI met Aaron at the Romantic Times Book Convention in Chicago last spring at the Fairy ball (I have a great pic at the bottom of this interview) and we began emailing a bit this summer. I’m so glad I met him! I loved The Never Prayer. My review is after this post. Click HERE Where was I? Oh, yeah, Aaron asked for my honest opinion of his young adult novel and I said if I was going to do that I wanted to have my way with him on my virtual couch *tries to waggle eye brows* lol sooo, he was a good sport and agreed. I <3 this interview so much and hope you get a kick out of meeting Aaron and enjoy the hoops I make him jump through. And he is a great guy and giving 2 lucky commenters a copy of The Never Prayer!

Without further adieu….
