Featured Author: Beth Albright

bethI just met Beth Albright a month ago in Atlanta when I did a book event with her at The Book Exchange in Marietta, and I love her!  I feel like I’ve known Beth forever and I want to be part of her inner circle.  She’s smart, and funny, and warm, and bubbly, and charming as heck.  She’s also Southern and has the whole Southern Belle thing down to a science…so much so, that she’s writing a series featuring her belles, more properly known as “The Sassy Belles”.

Beth is everything I want to be and more.  I can’t wait for you to meet this amazing talented new author who is taking the world by storm!  Readers and friends, here is the adorable, incredible, vivacious and beautiful Beth Albright!

Beth, is there anything that has surprised you about writing or publishing your books?

Oh my, yes! My nerves are shattered! Hahahahaha…Not really but I was so nervous no one would like the books. So from my very first book “birth”day in June…I have been a wreck. I can’t explain how much it’s just like having a real baby!!

What’s your typical day like when you’re between writing projects?

Same as every other mother or wife…laundry groceries, dishes, you know, the whole thing. And my son is away in college. Hahaha. But I still take care of my biggest baby– my husband! He takes care of me when I’m writing though. And I spend a lot of time promoting the books!! Several hours a day on social media, doing radio interviews or traveling and signing books.

Was there anyone or anything that helped inspire you to be a writer?

My mother and the women that raised me—they were amazing, smart, beautiful, strong and funny. In The Sassy Belles, the first novel of the trilogy, my narrator Blake, talks constantly of her grandmother’s yellow kitchen table. This is where I spent the majority of my childhood with my mother, aunt and grandmother; laughing so hard I could barely breathe. My mother pushed me to write from the time I was little. I was always entering contests. Before I started writing seriously, I was a radio talk show host and an actress on Days of Our Lives as well as owning an acting school and theater for children. When it finally came time to write I knew I would write about my favorite place, my hometown of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and the wonderful women who raised me.

Please tell us about your current release in 2 or 3 sentences.

My latest book is called Wedding Belles. It’s the second book in my new trilogy, The Sassy Belles. Wedding Belles, like the others, is full of sexy southern fun, a mystery, wedding planners gone wild and a redneck psychic as well as portraying the deep bonds of tried and true women’s friendships.

If you could meet one person who has died, who would it be?  What would you want to discuss with him/her?

This is so easy…my dad. He died in a car accident when I was only four years old, so I only have sketchy memories of him. The saddest part was that he was only 24. Oh, I have lots of stories from so many people about him, but one of my greatest desires is to hear the sound of his voice. He was a gorgeous, six foot three, large built man, with magnificent blue/green eyes, deep dimples and jet-black hair. I want to know his touch and hear him speak and talk with him about the dreams he had for himself and what he thought of me for the four years we had each other.

Best advice you’ve ever received?

Several things stand out. My first agent says “Don’t worry Beth, just write! My mother always says, keep your eye on the ball, Beth. But, my grandmother leaned over on my wedding day, just as I was about to walk down the isle and said, no matter what, you can plant the thoughts but always let him believe everything is his idea. It will save your marriage! That one was way too difficult!

Drama or comedy?

The best of anything in film, TV or literature always has elements of both!

Sunset or sunrise?

Sunset for sure. The brilliance of a sunset is the most peaceful view in nature for me. It signals the end of a day, a chance to begin again after a night’s rest. My hobby is taking pictures and I have been known to chase a million sunsets for just the right shot. I have even been able to snap the illusive green flash just milliseconds before the sun disappears into the ocean. I live on the West Coast now and the sunsets over the Pacific Ocean are some of the most breathtaking I have ever seen.

I grew up in a town where –like it says on the back of The Sassy Belles. The first book in the series– There are two seasons in Tuscaloosa—Football and waiting for football! I LOVE it!

  26. They look like stories that I would like to read.

    My summer vacation was gone way to quickly and my TBR pile grew. I’m still trying to read The Returned by Jason Mott.
    I’m so easily distracted by a lot of other fun things to do like baking and working out.

    Many unezpected happenings this summer – looking forward to things quieting down.

  29. I’ve been working all summer, but was fortunate enough to see one of my favorite ’80s musician, Adam Ant, in concert. I’ve also met some great authors at book signings and am super excited about seeing Depeche Mode (another ’80s band) in September.

    I’m currently reading The Life List by Lori Nelson Spielman and loving it!

  30. I love that Beth would like to speak with her father if she had the chance.

    I’m currently reading Out of the Blue by Belinda Jones. It’s about a girl who loves working on a cruise ship who somehow ends up unexpectedly in Myknos for the summer.

    I love summertime and am not looking forward to it ending. Luckily the next couple of weeks are action packed so I can extend my summer a little longer!

    Thank you for sharing the interview of Beth. Her books sound great. Looking forward to reading them.
    Right now I’m reading The Newcomer by Robyn Carr.

  34. My summer has gone entirely too fast, mostly due to finding out my son has become an alcoholic since returning from Iraq; and he has been diagnosed as being bi-polar. His marriage is in trouble because of the alcohol. I have been finding him an addiction clinic, and setting up AA meetings and post-clinic counseling. I read pretty much anything I can get my hands on, and could sure use a feel good book right now.

  35. I have had a busy summer with our children. My nieces just left from a visit and we are busy getting ready for back to school. I just finished reading Hotshot by Julie Garwood and am currently reading Rush to the Alter by Jamie Carie and the Lone Star Sisters series by Susan Mallery on my ipod (audiobooks).

  36. I’ve had a nice summer so far. And pretty soon I will be heading up to Santa Barbara for a quick getaway, so I am looking forward to that. I am currently reading a cozy mystery by Juliet Blackwell called “Murder on the House” which takes place in San Francisco’s Castro district. It has been a fun read.

  37. I love reading about newer authors. Their stories. Their ideas. Thanks for sharing. For answering questions! 😉 Have a great day!

  38. Forgot to answer the question. Reading Pride & Petticoats by Shana Galen. Just finished Forged in Steele by Maya Banks. And summer is still in full swing here in Phoenix. 😉

  39. My daughter got married in June and since my husband and I paid for everything, that was our summer vacation. We wouldn’t trade it for the world. I’ve been reading Nora Roberts Chesapeake Bay Quartet. I’m on the last book and it has been a wonderful series.

  40. Thanks for another great author to add to my list. These books sound like so much fun!

    I am reading Hooking Up and an ARC of Holding Up by Jessica L. Degarmo

  41. My summer consists of working, having my three grandchildren to stay, planning for a large family party on August Bank ~Holiday Saturday, hoping for good weather. Reading whenever I can grap a few minutes, either book or ereader. Just finished reading The Memory Garden by Rachel Hoare & starting the latest Danielle Steele “First Sight”. Hoping to get you Good Wife Trilogy from my local library ASAP if I don’t get fed up of waiting & go out & buy them first. Also enjoy readying Susan Wiggs, Susan Mallery & Debbie Macomber books.
    Have a good day.

  42. Thanks for sharing a new author! Her books sound great!
    I’m not really doing anything too exciting this summer, heading to Chicago later this fall

  43. Hi Jane. Beth sounds like some sassy southern fun herself! Glad I found this post. I’ve been busy this summer vacationing in Bermuda, getting my daughter ready for college, and putting the finishing touches on the soon-to-be released print version of my novel, Blue Hydrangeas, an Alzheimer’s love story. I’m in the middle of reading several books, including One Last Dance by Eileen Gouge.

  44. It has been a relatively quite summer for me which is nice. I have had quite of few more rainy days than normal in North Carolina. Lately, I have been reading a lot of PNR for a reading challenge that I am doing at goodreads and rereading books in a series that comes out next month. Right now I am reading Night Embrace by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

  45. I have had a blast this summer. I got to spend a week in the Outer Banks with 4 of my girlfriends and our husbands. Then I got to spend another week at the beach in NJ with my husband and another couple. It’s been so great! I just finished reading Ruin by Rachel Van Dyken. Very excellent book.

  46. This summer I enjoyed my vacation to Alaska so nice to see this state and beautiful scenery like the glaciers and animals. I am currently reading the series Sicily’s Corretti Dynasty.

  47. I just finished The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and will finish Market Street by Anita Hughes today. Wow, am I glad you introduced me to her!!!

    Summer is going way too fast and it makes me sad.

  48. These books look great! Thanks for sharing another great author for the “to-read” list. I can’t believe that we are already almost at the end of August, summer is going by so fast.

  49. So sad we are nearing the end of summer! It means back to work and school for myself and the kids…I would love to have another month with them, it has gone by too fast!

    I am just starting “While we were watching Downton Abbey”, by Wendy Wax, which I think was featured or mentioned in your blog earlier this year. And anxiously awaiting your new book!

  50. My summer has flown by – I have had 3 week long vacations, it has been awesome. Right now I am reading The Day After Yesterday by Kelly Cozy. Thanks for introducing us to another great author. Her stories sound wonderful!

  51. Missed most of summer with a broken foot. Really not looking forward to the end! Caught up on lots of reading tho and would live to read The Sassy Belles,

  52. Summer harvest of tomatos is starting at our house. I must say that JP surely brings out the most amazing debut authors and my husband would agree with the ‘football season and awaiting football’ as the 2 seasons!

  53. I am captivated with this new author and her series. What a great interview which is so interesting and special. My summer has been relaxing at home and I am reading Lighthouse Bay by Kimberley Freeman.

  54. It’s been a great summer. One of my big highlights was meeting you at RWA conference in Atlanta. Such a great event. I’m just finished ME BEFORE YOU by JoJo Moyes. Such a great book. Next up is WHISTLING PAST THE GRAVEYARD by Susan Crandall.

  55. I have a love hate relationship with summer. I love that it is warmer but hate high temps and humidity. I love that my kids are around and we can spend a lot of time together. I hate that they prefer their laptops/ipods/smart phones/TV to actual time spent together. It’s like I took their best friend away when I ask them to go somewhere as a family. I love that I have so much time to read and write. I hate that there are so few days in a “summer break”. I am thankful that my husband can support us so I can be home for our kids. Currently, I am reading Grace Burrowes Beckman and Susan Mallery’s Just One Kiss and an ARC of Season for Scandal by Theresa Romain. However, mt TBR pile has over 100 books and my Kindle has at least twice that waiting TBR. Donna’s series sounds great. My pile just got bigger…

  56. Great answers from Beth!
    My summer flew by. I work at a summer camp, it was very busy. I am back at work as a Preschool teacher. Most of my reading consists of lesson plans! I am waiting on your new book Ms. Jane 🙂

  57. Hi Jane , my summer was busy with a couple of vacations and getting my 2. Children ready to go off to college. I am an empty nester by the end of this week!! I am currently reading water witches by Chris Bohjalian and just finished outlander by Diana Gabaldon. The interview with Beth was great. She and her books sound like a hoot!

  58. My summer has been a little complicated. My granddaughter has been in the hospital a couple of times and I just finished my RA infusions and promptly got really sick. I’m not quite back on my feet yet. I haven’t been reading as much because I’m having a little trouble with my eyes. I’m about to finish Werewolf in Alaska by Vicki Lewis Thompson, love her books. I’d love to read Beth’s new series.

  59. Our summer has been busy. Our daughter graduated college and found a teaching position which she has started this week while we will be bringing our son back to college this week too. Right now I am reading Dangerous by Amanda Quick.

  60. Summer always seems to go by so quickly and I am left say Z”oh I sound have done this, or we should have done that.” My Emma has had a very fun summer, camping, acting school, breakfast at the Saratoga Race Track and swim lessons. As long as she has had a fun and memorable summer that is all that matters to me!

    Love ya, Jane!!!

  61. Good afternoon ladies,
    I met Beth shortly after her trip to Atlanta when she made stops in her home state of Alabama. Beth told of back stories of her books, how she came to meet you, Jane, i.e. the limo ride, and also person going through her tote. Beth is totally southern, and I enjoyed meeting her, her mom (gracious lady), her brother (what a sweetie, getting Beth a cold drink) and her nephew briefly. And, Beth is totally correct, her mom is a huge rah rah supporter.

    I just finished Forged in Steele by Maya Banks. Now, it’s time to pick out my next read.

    Jane you have got to get to our home state of AL. We’ll take you to Dreamland for some BBQ. Ask Beth, you can’t go wrong…

  62. Hi Jane!
    My summer has been great, but busy with football and waterpolo! Right now I’m reading a Kristin Hannah book, but I can’t wait to read “The Good Wife”!

    Take care!

    Amy P

  63. My summer has been about the same doing some work outside in the yard and things like that. I do try to take a walk about everyday just because I need to do the walking for my back. Have a lot of back problems now. I have been doing a lot of reading on my kindle but am between books right now and not sure what I am going to read next. Just finished a mail order bride story. Time to read a contemporary now.

  64. We spent the summer working on both our daughters houses and our own. It has been some long days, but so much fun! I would love to read this book! I just finished reading Diane Chamberlain’s Necessary Lies.

  65. I loved reading about Beth and her Sassy Belles trilogy. I can’t wait to read it. Thanks for another Author I have definitely got to read.
    My summer was hectic, spent with the grandkids and my kids at BBQ’s, outings, festivals and car shows.I’m reading What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty & A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams. Two of the most fabulous reads this summer. You must try them.

  66. eight days and counting down til I head south to a beach vacation with the family – haven’t been there in 14 years so looking forward to it!! I’ve just finished two Victorian’s by Victoria Alexander – I’ll be looking for a contemporary to start next.

  67. This summer has been a growing year for me – it’s been about regaining my courage and optimism and that long ago vanished free spirit that I had as a child. I am growing as a person to realize that I am strong, brave, and that I am enough as I am (good bye perfectionism, self doubt, etc). I’m currently reading Brene Brown’s book Daring Greatly. While most of my reading is fiction, this inspiring non-fiction book is a wonderful read for any woman who wants to improve her peace of mind, relationships, or just wants to live whole heartedly and enjoy each moment.

  68. I love the sound of these books. Thanks for letting me know about them, Jane.

    I just finished reading HE’S THE MAN by M. Malone. Now I’m reading THE BABY DEAL by Kat Cantrell.

  69. Thanks for introducing us to Beth! I am reading Perks of Being A Wallflower & watching the summer fly by. Off to Mackinac Island, Michigan for a long weekend!

  70. As always, I enjoyed the author interview. The books sound fun and the covers are so cheery. Seems to me this summer has been the summer of things breaking down in the house. But, I am fortunate that I can get them fixed. I now have a brand new oven…the old one had been in the house since the 1970’s.

  71. Thank you for sharing a new author to add to my reading list :). I am currently reading “The Lost Husband ” by Katherine Center… So far so good.

  72. Wow, another great introduction to a new to me writer. Thank you Jane! I will look for your books, Beth. I have been reading The Newcomer by Robyn Carr and Two of a Kind by Susan Mallery. Been a little busy around here getting my dad in assisted living…he loves it…and trying to get his home ready to sell. We are so ready for Football and cooler weather.

  73. I finished Whistling Past the Graveyard not a romance more of a coming of age story I enjoyed it. With my youngest starting college and my oldest just graduated from college been a little too busy to read 🙁

  74. I’ve spent the summer getting written by the romance bug! Started with Nora Roberts and have been working my way through Jill Shalvis, Kate Angell, Carolyn Brown… and Jane Porter! It has been quite a summer, I must say. And now there’s another great author to add to the list.

    Thanks for the opportunity to throw my hat in the ring. (Now I’m going to read through all the other comments and see what everyone else is reading!)

  75. Hi Jane and Beth!! I havent read anything form Beth yet cant wait! I have to say i spent my summer corralling children. From swimming to slipp n slides popcicles and bbqs when I wasnt doing that I was reading everything I could get my hands on new favs like Jennifer James and old favorites like Jane, sandy Blair, Nora Roberts

  76. Hi! My summer has been quite busy but doing a lot of summer reading-just finished reading J.D. Robb’s book Calculated by Death, super good! My son has returned home from college so I needed to rearrange my playroom so he could have his room back,trying to finish my teaching degree but can’t this semester for the classes I need are already full, bummer..need to check out Beth’s books they seem really good and love a new author too! I love to read so its always nice to add more books to add to my booklist! Have a super day!

  77. Jane,

    I am doing a lot of working, reading, and now football with my son. And soon Dance Team with my daughter. Never a free moment but a lot of time spent waiting for them so I get to read and I never leave home without something in my purse…whether it’s my kindle or a hardcopy 🙂

    Can’t wait to read The Good Wife and now I am excited to read The Sassy Belles!

    Hope you are well!

    Cindy

  78. Great Interview! I love getting to know (new to me) authors!
    My summer has been pretty laid back compared to most others where we were constantly on the go with our son’s baseball schedule. It’s been nice hanging around our house and enjoying the great weather here in PNW. We’ve had a few BBQ’s with friends just catching up & hanging out.

  79. School has been in session for awhile here, so the newest thing is the homework grind. Textbooks are not as fun as Jane’s books.

  80. good a new writer to read! thanks! well summer is winding down and time to get the little one ready for school. we had a joyous summer w.fun in the sun, vacations, no waking up to an alarm, just enjoying time together.

  81. What a fun Belle, down to earth and real. A super great interview, she is a Doll Belle. Haven’t read anything lately, been traveling to different beaches while biding time to our fun trip to Palm Springs.

  82. I wish that I could tell you what I am reading now, but the truth is that I have barely found time to read my emails. I am just counting the days until the kids go back to school and I can catch up on my reading. I look forward to reading the books by the authors that you have featured here and I can’t wait until The Good Wife comes out!

  83. My summer has been filled with 2 surgeries in the family. A new grand niece was born today.
    It has been raining almost everyday and i have been reading Stephanie Bond on my Kindle.

  84. My summer has been extremely busy! I started a new job in May and I work a lot because a lot of people in my department like to call out and so they ask me to come in and cover. Also my sister is coming home from Australia to visit for 3 weeks. I’m excited to see her and spend time with her. I haven’t seen her in a year and a half today. I love being asked what I’m reading because I read so many different kinds of books. I’m currently reading This is How it Ends by Kathleen MacMahon. It’s really good. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity!

  85. My summer has had ups and downs. My 21 year old son moved away from home for the first time, our family dog passed on, other than that life has been boring this summer. I am reading All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins. Thank you for the chance to win.

  86. My summer started off with a move, and I can say unequivically that I am NOT settled in yet. I spend way-ay-ay too much time on the computer instead of getting the house in order! And I’ve been reading — just finished THE BRIDGE by Karen Kingsbury and COCKATIELS AT SEVEN by Donna Andrews. I’ve *just* begun a SISTER AGATHA story by David Thurlo and Aimee Thurlo. I also have started WONDERLAND CREEK by Lynn Austin for my church ladies books club.

  87. Hi Jane! Thanks for introducing another author, I will check out her work soon. This summer, in addition to attending most of the local theaters production of Shakespeare’s play, I will also get the chance to see Chris Botti perform @Thornton Winery in Temecula. Yay! I am currently reading Anita Hughes’s new book “Lake Como” and liking it so far. 😀 I also learn about Anita from you and got a chance to attend her book signing in Laguna Beach last weekend (saw you there also). Thank you! I can’t wait for “The Good Wife!”

  88. Loved everyone’s comments! Thanks for making Beth feel welcome! 🙂
    Time to announce our winner and that’s –

    #31 Lee Strickler

    Drop me an email, Lee and I’ll get prize in the mail asap!

    love to all!
    Jane
