Fun & Writing with V.Joy Palmer, author of Love, Lace and Minor Alterations

Just Commonly welcome authors to drop by and share with us their take on a book that embodies a predetermined Word of the Month!  For the full year of 2017, every Monday at 7:00 AM EST, a new post by a new author will be live!

I love that this month's word is "FUN" and this week's author is such a good author in representation of the word. V.Joy Palmer's debut novel, Love, Lace and Minor Alterations is a perfect example of fun reading, fun writing and fun all around! Don't believe me? Check out my review of the book HERE. It's also on my multiple Year-End Favorite lists too!  I'm so excited to see what recommendation this FUN author have to share with us!

"Fun is so inadequate of a word. . ."
- V. Joy Palmer

"This was a little hard for me. I’m the kind of person who recommends four or five different books at a time. But the more I thought about it, the more I knew it had to be Match Point by Erynn Mangum, Book Three in the Lauren Holbrook Series. Yeah, the third book. *grins sheepishly*

Fun is so inadequate of a word to describe Match Point! Quirky characters, matchmaking, and a main character with a coffee addiction the literary world has never seen the likes of before or since. Match Point also awakened new life in me as a writer and is the reason I started writing romantic comedy. Before reading this, I had been bouncing from genre to genre. After reading this, everything within my soul cried out, “This! I want to write stories like this!” Erynn Mangum showed me how fun writing could be! And not to brag or anything, but the main character and I share the same married last name.  So, yeah. It was kismet."

V. Joy Palmer is an avid blogger and is co-founder of Snack Time Devotions. She is a youth leader at her church, and loves acting crazy and drinking coffee with the teens.

When Joy isn’t urging the elves that live in her computer to write, she’s hanging out with her husband, their adorable baby girl, and their two socially awkward cats. This is her debut novel.

ABOUT MATCH POINT (Lauren Holbrook, Book 3) by Erynn Mangum

The conclusion to this matchmaking series offers readers another helping of chocolate and humor as they share Laurie Holbrook's search for wisdom from God when Laurie finds herself on the receiving end of the matchmaking.
