Blog Tour- Interview with Laura Beege about her novel These Things About Us


Laura contacted me when I first began this blog asking if I would be interested in participating in the blog tour for her soon to be published novel Those Things About Us. Of course I said I would! I love helping self-published authors and talking to authors about their work.

I had the opportunity to do a video interview with Laura so that we could chat about These Things About Us. Check out what she had to say below!
