I was thrilled to have so many of you over for the Sunday Interview series .. and this year it was the Author Book Reading and Interview.. My first guest was Tina Frisco and the post is still being viewed, making it the highest viewed interview of the year. I have taken the liberty of updating the reviews today.

Sally's Cafe and BookstoreWelcome to the series that is connected to Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore. After setting the cafe up last year I intend now to use as the focal point for all book promotions here on Smorgasbord. Once in the cafe, authors can be updated in the twice weekly posts with their new releases and also excellent reviews… but they can now also do a book reading and interview as they might do in a real bookstore.
