About the Blogger

Laura Chapman writes sweet and sexy contemporary romances. A native Nebraskan, Laura holds a journalism degree with minors in English and history from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Before pursuing a career as a novelist, she reported for local and regional newspapers and traveled the country as a corporate journalist. Though she always knew she wanted to write books, these experiences taught her that every person has a story worth telling. (It also gave her plenty of time behind the wheel to fantasize about all of the stories she wanted to make up.) When she isn’t penning her next novel, Laura enjoys watching football, traveling, crocheting, binge-watching Netflix, and hanging out with her cats, Jane and Bingley.

About the Blog

Change the Word was established in 2009 as a way for me to share my adventures in the written world. Then an aspiring author, the blog was a way to keep myself on task. Ultimately it became much more than that.

During the past several years, I have shared more than 150 book reviews, dozens of interviews and guests posts from fellow authors, in addition to various reading and writing series. Today, CTW is a place for me to share the stories I love, news and behind the scenes info about my projects (past, present, and future), and anything else that strikes my fancy.

I love hearing from readers. Let's keep in touch. You can find me on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. You can also sign-up to receive my e-newsletter for updates.

Editorial Policy

CTW is no longer open to review, guest spot, or feature requests. After more than four years as a book blogger, I'm retiring to focus on my writing projects. Thank you for your interest and best of luck to you in your promotional endeavors.
