FollowFest 2014


It’s that time of year again! Not only is it almost time for Sugarcane Festival, but blogger and author extraordinaire, Melissa Maygrove, is hosting Follow Fest again! Woo-hoo! *Fist pumps*

Purpose: To meet other writers and build our platforms.

Follow Fest ’14 runs thru Friday. There’s still time to sign up! More details here.

So without further adieu!

Quanie Miller

Fiction or nonfiction?
Definitely fiction!

What genres do you write?
Paranormal and romantic comedy.

Are you published?
Yep. My debut novel is a romantic comedy called It Ain’t Easy Being Jazzy. My first paranormal release, The New Mrs. Collins, will be available via Amazon October 13. You can add it to your Goodreads shelf here 🙂

Do you do anything in addition to writing?
Yes, I beta read. I also do some developmental editing.

Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a wife and (brand new!) mother. I’m from New Iberia, Louisiana, one of America’s prettiest towns. You can read my full bio here.

What are you reading right now?
I have quite a few things in my TBR pile. Up next is Finding Forever by Christina C. Jones.

Which authors influenced you the most?
I’d definitely have to say R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike.

Where can people connect with you?
You can subscribe to my blog by clicking “follow” on the bottom of the page. And here are other places you can find me hanging out online:

Do you have a newsletter?
Not yet.

Is there anything else you’d like us to know?
Let’s see…I probably make the best pralines you’ve ever had (Okay. Maybe not better than grandma’s!). I’m also happy to participate in release day activities/blog tours for other authors (like posting covers, excerpts, author interviews, etc). Just ask! I’m also hosting a blog tour for my upcoming paranormal release. If you’d like to sign up you can find the details here.

Thanks for stopping by! And please hop over to to meet some of the other authors participating in Follow Fest this week.

Until next time!

  1. Hi Quanie,
    It is nice to see another indie author making a career doing what she loves 🙂
    I couldn’t help but notice that you were doing a blog tour. I offer blog tour services on my indie publishing companies sister site. I am in the process of building up to four events coming this October and November. I was wondering if you would be interested in helping out I can send you an email on the information. I would also be happy to host your event also 🙂 We are always accepting guest posts, interviews, reviews, and much more on our site.
    The site all these items are listed on is @ I don’t have our tour information up yet. But, all the items we feature make up all the content that fuel this sister site to Dragon Knight Chronicles.

  2. Nice to meet you, Quanie. Congrats on the new little one and your latest release. The cover is spectacular!

    (Hoping this comment will actually post. I’ve been having problems with non-Blogger blogs eating my comments 🙁 )

  3. How wonderful to learn more about you, Quanie. I didn’t realize you were a new mom. Congratulations!!! I love babies. They are sooo enjoyable so treasures these infant years. Do you have any other children or is this your first?

    Anyhoo, send some of those delicious pralines my way and stop selfishly hoarding them. 😉 Also we should both feature each other on our upcoming blog tours. I can do a book blurb spotlight for ya if you’d like. Let me know.

    • I know, right? She’s just over a week old and already running the house, lol! And this is our first. We’re over the moon! And we should definitely swap blog features! ABSOLUTELY. Would love to! (And if you’re ever in my area, I’d be happy to make you some pralines:)

  4. Hi again! Firstly – congratulations on being a new mum 🙂

    I beta-read too, and as we appear to have similar genre interests, let me know if you want to exchange.

    Also, I’m happy to feature you on Writing Room 101 during your upcoming Blog Tour. I can be a stop along the way, if you’re in need of stops or support in any way!

    • You’re welcome! If you plan to participate I hope you have a blast. And thanks for the congrats! You know, my regular writing schedule has always been in the wee hours of the morning and it turns out that’s when the baby is sleeping! So I am truly blessed to still be able to write (and get some sleep!).

  5. Ya know, I almost totally forgot FF this year and if I didn’t get email updates from your blog, I would have prolly missed it! So I’m so glad I’m a faithful subscriber!

    Anywho, congrats on the new baby!That’s amazing news!And your latest book looks so promising!Already added it to my tbr list!

    • Me, too! My daughter woke up at 3 am to eat and I thought, “Well, shoots. If I’m up I might as well do something productive.” I wrote my blog post for the morning and checked my email and saw Melissa’s post. So glad I did! And thanks for the congrats and for adding my book to your TBR list!

  6. Congrats on your new baby! I’m always happy to help out with blog tours and I’m looking for beta readers still. I’ll definitely sign up for your next blog tour. If you need promotional graphics for your tour I know someone who does great work for very reasonable prices as well.
