Black Heart’s Best of 2015 – Year End Wrap Up

What a year 2015 turned out to be for us black hearted ladies! It was our first full year as a blog and we’ve grown so much. Debbie and Ali traveled to a few places, including their first RT convention and YallWest. 

They also hit up an author event in Portland where they met, live and in person, Tiffany. Convincing her to become part of Black Heart was really easy with a few Vodka Tonics (with extra limes, of course) under her belt.  😉  We’re very happy to have her be part of the blog and part of our little family.

Also in Portland, was Leah.  She didn’t fall for our Vodka Tonic tricks though. But eventually gave in after a night of ridiculously fun haunted houses. Maybe we just needed to put the fear in her? Regardless of how she joined, she’s definitely a fun addition!

We’ve also grown our follower family and we love you all dearly. It warms our tar colored hearts that you all take time to interact and talk books with us every day. 

Below are a few of our favorite reads from the year, leave us a comment to tell us what your favorites were!

Moving forward, 2016 promises big (HUGE) things for us.  We’re hosting our second Emerald City Author Event next April in Seattle and our first event – Mile High Author Event – in Denver the following September. World domination will follow shortly after.
