Authors from the historical romance collection The Blue Ribbon Brides Romance Collection (Barbour Books) visited through online video with readers at The Vine, a Christian bookstore at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana. The authors are spread out all over–from Alaska to Virginia–but were able to each visit with the book club through sessions on Skype. Each visit ranged 10-20 minutes as authors shared behind-the-scenes peeks at their work life and faith, and insight into their historical romance novellas.
