- Stay tuned for news about Joe’s latest novel, FOSTER ROAD, forthcoming from Holiday House!
- A Mighty Blaze is a literary collective founded in March 2020 by novelists Jenna Blum and Caroline Leavitt. In April of that year, as businesses of all kinds closed their doors, Joe and his friend and fellow writer Kimberly Hensle Lowrance launched Authors Love Bookstores through A Mighty Blaze’s platform to support independent booksellers.
Authors Love Bookstores pairs an author with a bookseller from an independent bookseller that they love. Over the course of a 45-minute interview they talk writing, reading, publishing, bookselling, and provide visibility and support for that week’s store.
Now over 100 episodes in, Joe and Kimberly have “visited” bookstores across the US, Canada, and the UK. Features authors include Judy Blume, Tom Perrotta, CJ Box, Mikel Jollett, Ann Patchett, Josh Ritter, and many more. Episodes air at 4PM/ET on A Mighty Blaze’s platforms (@amightyblaze Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter) and back episodes can be viewed on YouTube.
