Book Banter S3 EP 111: J.R. Byers Interview

Hello My Happy People,

I am so glad I can finally get this email out to all of you. I have been having nothing be technical difficulties today and people messaging me left and right about different things, it has just been hectic.

The next issue of Book Banter Magazine is almost finished, but I was not able to touch it all all today with everything else going on. At least you all get to hear the incredible conversation I had with historical fiction/paranormal romance author J.R. Byers.

Janet is the last author in our regularly scheduled LoveFest author group, but next week you will get a bonus author. She had to drop out of the regular lineup but we managed to get her rescheduled in time to bring her in at the end.

But enough of my rambling, let's get on to the amazing J.R. Byers, paranormal romance author.

To say that J.R. Byers is a lifelong fan of romance novels is not much of an exaggeration. She fell in love with the genre at the tender age of twelve. Since then, her love of romance has only grown. When J.R. first felt the urge to pen her own fiction, romance was the obvious choice. 

With so many sub-genres available to dabble in, J.R. has used her platform to explore more than just one theme for her storytelling. Writing contemporary, paranormal, and historical romance novels gave her a creative outlet that has been well received by her readers. 

While her current books in the Blackwood series have not received numerous reviews as of yet, the ones they have acquired are amazing. To find out more about J.R. Byers and her books, listen to her interview on now and then check out her pages in the Feb/Mar issue of Book Banter Magazine.
