The Author’s Taproom is the brain child of Crystal and Shannon. Two avid readers, romance lovers, book reviewers, blog owners, and friends. The idea stemmed from the desire to help our favorite authors and promoting the books we love. We understand that as an author, your time is precious. We are here to provide you with more time to write your stories so that they can be in the reader’s hands sooner, with less worries for you.
Shannon started Cocktails and Books in May 2011 as a way to share her love of books with others members of the book club she belonged to (they were called the Friday Night Cocktail Society, so you can probably figure out where the blog name came from).
Crystal started Reading Between the Wines Book Club in September of 2010 to share the books from her small book club that she read and loved. After all, what goes better with a good book than a glass of wine? Since then it has flourished from a few simple thoughts and opinions on books to a book blog that provides readers with quality reviews from their favorite authors throughout the romance genre as well as fun interviews, guest posts and fabulous giveaways for our readers.
