“Full of family secrets, undeniable charm and that particular touch of magic so often found in the South, MIDNIGHT AT THE BLACKBIRD CAFE is a heartfelt and redemptive tale of a daughter looking to move forward in the place her mother couldn’t wait to leave behind. Heather Webber creates a town as dynamic and real as her characters—and a story so compelling that it will stay on readers’ minds long after the final page. I savored every word.”

Kristy Woodson Harvey, national bestselling author of Slightly South of Simple

Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe is an enchanting gem of a novel, brimming with charming characters, heartwarming connections, old secrets, and a setting that makes you want to move there.   As refreshing as a glass of blackberry tea, this is truly magical realism at its best!”

Karen WhiteNew York Times bestselling author

“Family, fate, and magic intertwine in this endearing Southern tale of long-held secrets, homemade pie, and building one’s future from the remains of the past. A tantalizing, delicious delight, through and through. Heather Webber writes with so much detail and imagination that I’ll be craving some Blackbird Cafe pie—and the comfort that comes with it—for a long time to come.”

Kristin Harmel, international bestselling author of The Room on Rue Amélieand The Sweetness of Forgetting

    It would be interesting to hear about the process for a book launch in a future post, Jessica. Author versus agent involvement in planning/marketing and how you manage to gain momentum so it gets picked up by other outlets etc.
