My Chat (and Giveaway) with Kimberly Brock, Debut Author of THE RIVER WITCH

5 years ago

My guest today is Kimberly Brock, who is a sweet southern author with a sassy yet sizzling novel to discuss. Last week I posted my review of her debut book, THE RIVER WITCH.

She received some great news recently when she found out that her book is to be the June selection for the national book club organization, She Reads. It was also recently featured in Deep South Magazine and previewed in Dalton magazine.

I met Kimberly Brock through another fantastic Bell Bridge author, Jessica McCann, and I am sooo excited to have her here today to chat about her intriguing and heart-tugging story.  

HS: Hi Kimberly! Thank you so much for being here today! This is such a wonderful story that pulls at the heart strings, especially those of us that are mothers. What was it about this story that made you feel it needed to be told?

KB: I wrote this novel over a period of five years, so my reasons for writing it changed along the way. At first, it was a story about marginalized women and children, but it also became a look at how family and heritage influence our choices for good and bad. How they define us. And what we stand to lose of ourselves if we don’t cherish and find peace with all that means about ourselves.​

HS: Was this the first novel you had written or do you have a few hiding in some desk drawer?

KB: I have two other novels hidden in drawers and something like a novella based on a character from The River Witch, a POV that I took out of the final draft of the novel.


Read the full post here and enter to win her novel! Giveaway ends tonight (May 31st) at midnight CST.
