  3. Hello Jaime, a fellow Laurelite? I’m excited to make your acquaintance and since everyone is related down there, I can’t wait to discover how close kin we are! I grew up as Johnny Odell Johnson, by the way–from those Jasper County Johnsons, and Scotch-Irish Sumralls.

      Jon, if you are going to be in Laurel soon, I would be honored if you would let me interview you about your upcoming book. If not, perhaps we could arrange something via email.



  4. Jamie (if I may), My name is John Sledge and I am the Books editor for the Mobile Press-Register. I’d like for you to consider doing freelance reviews for our Sunday page. I am impressed with your stuff (discovered you thru your Amazon reviews). Email me if you would and let’s caucus. We do pay. Cheers.

  6. Hi Jaime. Do you allow authors to submit books to you for review? If so, how? I am on wordpress too at tothepowerofzero.org if you would like to respond that way. Thanks!

  7. I love your blog! PS, I like the background, I actually have The Third Son for review (from Netgalley). Are you promoting the book?
