Today we have an authors spotlight.
Welcome Tammy McKee author of THE BONE TREATY.
First off I’d like to thank May for having me on her Blog and giving me the chance to talk a little bit about myself. You’re awesome. Truly. Writers and readers are always so helpful. I can’t imagine what the world would be like without them. Shudders.
This year has been a pretty busy year for me. I’m the owner and acquisitions editor at a small publishing house called BookFish Books. You can find out more information about me, the team, and see a lineup of our books here: http://www.bookfishbooks.com. When I’m not reading submissions or writing my next installment, I’m busy taking care of my family, spoiling my Great Dane (see picture above), or looking for a way to have some down time, which generally consists of reading more fiction.
My own debut, The Bone Treaty released on August 11th of this year and it’s been a wonderful experience for me. There’s nothing like the feeling of opening a box, reaching in with grabby fingers, and grasping your own book for the first time. I squealed. It was kind of embarrassing, but a necessary reaction all things considered. Taking a story from a few words on a page and morphing it into a book is not an easy feat.
How about you? Are you there yet? Do you hope to be soon?

Love and Salt: A Spiritual Friendship in Letters, is something completely surprised me. I was torn picking this one up, I love reading books based on letters or journals – however, the authors faith was not something I related to. I feared that I would end up spending more time rolling my eyes than enjoying it.
Boy, was I ever wrong.
I have become slightly obsessed with this book. It was just so, so well written. It’s honest, (very honest) and at times raw. You can tell as you read that the authors are close and tell each other everything. Everything, also went into this book. It’s very personal. Which made it something that I could easily relate to.
It wasn’t just letters written between people. It was a book I could see some of my own struggles in.
I really appreciate being able to see the authors struggles – and see them questioning faith. That made this book for me. They didn’t just blindly accept their faith.
Love and Salt is a book that transcends faith. It is a great book for those on a spiritual path and aren’t sure where they are going to end up. It gives you a lot to think about.
Now, it also has an accompanying readers guide that you can download on the authors site, making it a great book group read.
It could actually be a great tool for letter writers who wish to follow the same kind of challenge but are still seeking out more of their own path.
Of course, it is also a great read for someone who just enjoys journal, or letter reading.
If you are only going to read one book this year that has a slight (but not over powering) religious feel to it, this is that book.
LOVE this book. Definitely a five star read.
