Hi, guys! Amy here. Hard to believe it's been a month since FIELD OF GRAVES came into the world, right? Did you have fun getting to know all of your favorites before the series began? I know a lot of people enjoyed seeing Taylor and Baldwin's relationship blossom. But me? I'm glad I finally know how Taylor got that infamous scar. J.T. likes to put together a digital scrapbook of sorts for each book. So I've taken the liberty to co...

Happy Sunday, folks! Amy here. Are you having a good time settling into summer? In Nashville, that usually means coming to terms with never-ending sticky weather with thunderstorms every afternoon. But you know what? I'm making peace with it because . . . TOMATOES ARE HERE. I repeat, TOMATOES ARE HERE. 🍅🍅🍅 I live for fresh tomatoes. By themselves with salt. On a freshly grilled hamburger. In pico de gallo. With cottage chee...

by J.T. & Amy Ahh... can you feel it? sweet summertime is fast approaching! Memorial Day Weekend marks the beginning of summer—and the frenzy of barbecues and beach trips and gatherings galore that require cold beverages. Before you scramble to find wines to pair with your grill fare, check out these Under $20 favorites we like to cool off with. White Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio ($8) – serve with grilled chicken & veggie salads Lone...

Hi, Chickens! Whew, it's Sunday! Are you getting much relaxing done? I'm editing away on the next Nicholas Drummond book, making up for lost time, because instead of working... I spent this week at Book Expo America (BEA) in Chicago, one of the biggest publishing events of the year. Industry folks come together and talk about the biggest books and trends in the market. I always like to see what other genres and houses are up to, i...

By Amy I promise I'm not shirking my white wine duties. But. I really couldn't let you go another day without hearing about this zinfandel. And what I paired with it. As for the wine, Kenwood's 2011 Yulupa Zinfandel is just delightful. Fruit-forward and balanced, with a nice touch of acidity and mild tannins, this zin was a refreshing to drink while I prepared dinner. And the price isn't bad, either; it was about $15 at my lo...

Happy Sunday, lovelies! Did you have a good week? Yesterday was my birthday—thank you for all the love, by the way!—so I'm still riding high on birthday weekend bliss and brand-new hardwood floors (which came after a leak in the kitchen, so... not planned, but certainly not unwelcome, either). Here's what they look like! I'm over the moon. I think they count as a birthday present, right? Anywho... Here's what happened on the In...

Hi, lovelies! It's J.T.!!! I know I'm breaking my silence, but I am so excited to share some awesome news with you today! Remember during my annual review last year, when I listed a secret project in my word counts? It's not a secret any more! I'm writing a new standalone thriller! It's called TEAR ME APART. Here’s the announcement from Publishers Marketplace: NYT bestselling author J.T. Ellison's new standalone TEAR ME A...

by J.T. Let's talk about Italian reds, shall we? There are many wine-producing regions in Italy, but one of the most prolific is in the northwest of the country, in an area called Piedmont ( Piemonte, in Italian). Nestled at the base of the Alps, Piedmont produces some fine wines, particularly from one of my favorite grapes: Nebbiolo. Since Piedmont is has lots of hills, temperature and terroir vary wildly—and so does the grape. Yo...

For the past two weeks, I’ve focused on how a life-long pursuit of perfection has created issues in both my creative and personal lives. Today, I’d like to turn all of that on its ear. Because, honestly? Striving for perfection has created great success for me. The term success in and of itself is subjective. The traditional definition—the accomplishment of an aim or purpose—seems less than the word’s current connotation. Suc...

Happy Sunday, chickens! Happy Mother's Day! I'm sadly in another state so I don't get to see my mommy today. Give yours an extra squeeze for me. I'm gearing up to go on the road, and this time my travels take me to BEA (Book Expo America), one of the biggest book events of the year. Are you around the Chicago area? You should stop by! Click here to find me this week. And now, without further adieu... Here's what happened...

From the time I was able to hold a pencil and write, perfection was my friend, and mistake my enemy. It was a paralyzing combination. I wanted to be an artist, but when faced with a blank sheet of paper, I was terrified. Not with fear that I couldn’t draw, couldn’t create. I knew I could. No, my fear was I would ruin the pristine paper with a line out of place, and I’d have to throw it away. I would have ruined the paper with...

Hi, lovelies! How are you this fine Sunday? I've sequestered myself on a writing retreat, praying the Muse will fill me with words to jumpstart my latest projects (that's right—plural—hence the prayers). I hope this break from routine sparks some much-needed creative flow over here! *Sidenote: I'm going to be at SOKY Book Fest this weekend! If you're near the Bowling Green area, you should see me at the signing hall on Saturday. ...
