On Sale: Prime Minister by Ainsley Booth & Sadie Haller

Prime Minister

by: Ainsley Booth, Sadie Haller
Frisky Beavers #1
Publisher or Imprint: Booth Haller Books
http://www.friskybeavers.com

iBooks | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Amazon | Google Play

Gavin:
Ellie Montague is smart, sensitive, and so gorgeous it hurts to look at her. She’s also an intern in my office. The office of the Prime Minister of Canada.*
That’s me. The PM.
She calls me that because when she calls me Sir, I get hard and she gets flustered, and as long as she’s my intern, I can’t twist my hands in her strawberry-blonde hair and show her what else I’d like her to do with that pretty pink mouth.**

Ellie:
How much I like the PM varies on a daily basis. He’s intense, controlling, and a perfectionist in every way—and he demands the same of his staff.
How much I want him never wavers.
There’s something about him that tugs at me deep inside, and makes me wish that just once he’d cross the line in a late night work session. I’d take that secret to the grave if it meant I got a taste of the barely restrained beast inside him.***

FOOTNOTES:
* This is a fictional erotic romance. No prime ministers or interns were harmed in the making of this book.
** Except it’s a BDSM romance, so they were hurt a little.
*** Spoiler alert: she gets more than a taste. And she likes it.

Getting to know…Alys West

November and December haven’t been the best of months–still dealing with a couple of health issues, which has meant I’ve had to slow down a bit. Trying to get back on track now with my Getting to Know… series, which I had to set aside for a while. Starting to feel a bit more like my old self, so let’s hope 2017 will bring us a much better year. 🙂

For our very last Getting to Know of 2016, we’re sitting down with Alys West, who writes romantic fiction with a steampunk twist. I like that! 🙂 Her latest book, The Dirigible King’s Daughter,  and her first novel, Beltane, are both available as ebooks. So grab a cup (or glass) of your favourite beverage, make yourselves comfortable and let’s get to know Alys.

Thanks so much for joining us today, Alys. Tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from originally?

alys-west-2

Author Alys West

I live in the lovely historic city of York in in the North of England. I was born in the south of England but I’ve lived in York for most of my life. My interests are drinking tea and eating cake in nice cafés (I’m not sure if that actually counts as an interest but I do spend a lot of time doing it.

I would definitely count eating cake in nice cafés as an interest. It’s one of my favourite things to do. 

We’re kindred spirits then. I’m very thorough in my researching of cafes to find the nicest ones), going to folk music gigs, crocheting and baking.

Crocheting is one of those things I always wanted to learn to do, but never got the hang of it. And I guess we can add writing to your list of interests. 🙂 Did you always know you wanted to be an author? 

When I was eight my teacher gave us 20 sheets of A5 paper and told us to write a long story over the Easter holidays. Mine grew and grew until I’d not only filled the 20 sheets but half an exercise book. Like most 8 year olds in the 1970s I was reading a lot of Enid Blyton so the story I wrote was heavily influenced by the Famous Five but with added ponies as I was somewhat obsessed with horses at the time. Now I teach myself I feel sorry for my teacher who read every handwritten page but I’ll always be grateful that he set us that task because it set me off on this path and made me believe that anyone (even eight year olds) could write books.

Sounds like a great teacher. Now before we go to the next question, I just want to share with my readers the blurb for your new book, The Dirigible King’s Daughter :

the-dirigible-kings-daughter-by-alys-westWhen Harriet Hardy moved to Whitby, newly famous from Mr Stoker’s sensational novel, she thought she’d left her past and her father’s disgrace behind her. But then an amorous Alderman and a mysterious Viscount turn her life upside down and she’s never been more grateful that she doesn’t leave home without her pistol.

But when defending her honour lands her with an attempted murder charge, Harriet’s only option is to turn to the mysterious Viscount for help. Fortunately, he turns out to be not so mysterious after all and, fortified by copious amounts of tea, she sets forth to clear her name.

As the court case looms Harriet fears she’ll forever be tarnished by her father’s scandalous reputation. Can she avoid conviction, and just possibly, find a happy ending? Or will she always be trapped by her past as the daughter of the notorious Dirigible King?

If you like Gail Carriger or Georgette Heyer you’ll love this sparkling romance with a steampunk twist.

I love the blurb! Adding The Dirigible King’s Daughter to my TBR list. I haven’t read a lot of steampunk, but I really like the description of the plot. So tell me, Alys, what’s your favorite part of being a writer?

Making up characters and stories is definitely the best bit of being a writer. I love telling stories whether in novels or making up stories for my nephew and godson. When I tell a story or read to an audience there’s this moment of magic when I can tell that the person listening is hooked and they really want to know what happens next. The best feedback I can get from someone was ‘I just couldn’t put your book down’. And when people tell me that they love one of the characters in my books then that’s an amazing feeling. To know I’ve created characters who can go out into the world and make friends with people I don’t know is a very special thing indeed.

I know that feeling. I really love it when, as a reader, I connect with characters so much I want to tell the author about it. And as an author, I love it when my characters speak to my readers. 🙂  Which of your characters is your favourite?

Harriet Hardy from The Dirigible King’s Daughter is my favourite (but please don’t tell the others as I don’t want them to get upset!)

Your secret is safe with me! 😉

I love Harriet because life has been hard for her, she’s faced grief, tragedy and prejudice but she’s come through them and created a new life from all that adversity. She’s feisty, funny and determined and, because this is steampunk, never leaves home without her pistol.

She sounds like a fun character! I can’t wait to get to know her. Are you working on a new book now? Can you give us a sneak peek of the plot?

screen-shot-2016-12-26-at-18-46-55I’m currently working on the second of the Spellworker Chronicles books called Storm Witch. It’s set in the beautiful Orkney Islands in the North of Scotland and it starts with a magical ritual in the Neolithic burial chamber of Maeshowe. Winston from my first novel, Beltane, features in this book and there’s some new characters to keep him on his toes. It’s partly a murder mystery and partly a supernatural romance and there’s going to be a lot of mayhem and magic unleashed in Orkney.

Ooh! I like the sound of this. I’m going to keep an eye out for it then.  What about dream writing projects? If you could work on a collaborative project with any writer, who would be your dream writing partner?

It would have to be Dorothy L Sayers although I would be so in awe of her that I probably wouldn’t be able to speak, never mind actually write anything!

I know what you mean! If I could have worked on a project with Ruth Rendell…I probably would have been too starstruck to be much help.  As a writer, you must be an avid reader. What are you reading now?

I’m reading Beside the Ocean of Time by George Mackay Brown. It’s a book that I first read over 20 years ago and it’s started my love affair with Orkney although it was another 15 years or so until I was first able to visit the Orkney Islands for the first time. As Storm Witch is set in Orkney I’m reading everything I can find about the islands and it’s a joy to go back to this book. It’s lyrical and beautiful and is the next best thing to actually being in Orkney.

screen-shot-2016-12-26-at-18-57-46

The Orkney Islands

I always love finding out which authors other authors would recommend. Who would you recommend to people looking for someone new to read?

For fantasy I’d say check out Guy Gavriel Kay who writes the most amazing fantasy books. The Lions of Al-Rassan is my favourite which is loosely based on the history of the Moors in Spain. I’ve recently discovered War for the Oaks by Emma Bull, one of the original urban fantasy novels which sparked the whole genre and it’s just brilliant. For steampunk, I’ve just finished Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear which has a wonderful, smart-talking heroine and has shot straight to the top of my list of steampunk favourites.

I will have to check all of these titles out. What’s your take on fiction addressing social issues?  Some readers say they only read to escape and don’t want to be reminded of racism, social inequality, etc when they open a book.

I think it’s entirely possible to address social issues and still produce a fun, escapist read. One reviewer said that The Dirigible King’s Daughter, which is steampunk romantic suspense, “addressed issues of prejudice in all its forms in a well-woven and thought-provoking way”. I think I’ve been influenced by some of the writers that I love like Dorothy L Sayers. There’s a lot in her books about the position of women in society, prejudice and discrimination but all woven into a really enjoyable detective story.

It’s the same for me. I really love when writers weave issues of the day in their writing. This was something Ruth Rendell did as well, and it’s one of the reasons I’ve always loved her novels. Before we finish up, could you share some words of advice for novice writers?

I teach creative writing classes for Converge, an arts project for people with mental health issues, so I give quite a lot of advice to novice writers these days. I think the most important thing I’ve learned from teaching writing is that everyone can do it. It doesn’t matter how old you are, how good your health is, when you were last in education or how many qualifications you have or haven’t got. Writing is about doing it, about putting pen to paper or touching those computer keys and finding the words that matter to you to tell your story in your way. That’s what makes a writer; not how you’re published or what your rankings are or how many Amazon reviews you’ve got. Everyone’s got a voice and that’s what’s precious because no one else can tell that story or write that poem like you can.

Thanks again for doing us today, Alys! I really enjoyed getting to know you and I am sure my readers did too!

These are just a few ideas! I’ll be back soon with more! 🙂

 

Excerpt Reveal: A Veil of Vines by Tillie Cole

 
To most people, princes, princesses, counts and dukes are found only in the pages of the most famous of fairytales. Crowns, priceless jewels and gilded thrones belong only in childhood dreams.
But for some, these frivolous fancies are truth.
For some, they are real life.
On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, people have always treated me as someone special. All because of my ancestral name and legacy. All because of a connection I share to our home country’s most important family of all.
I am Caresa Acardi, the Duchessa di Parma. A blue blood of Italy. I was born to marry well. And now the marriage date is set.
I am to marry into House Savona. The family that would have been the royals had Italy not abolished the monarchy in 1946. But to the aristocrats of my home, the abolition means nothing at all.
The Savonas still hold power where it counts most.
In our tight-knit world of money, status and masked balls, they are everything and more.
And I am soon to become one of them.
I am soon to become Prince Zeno Savona’s wife…
… or at least I was, until I met Achille.
And everything changed.
Caresa

I closed my eyes as the music pounded through my body. The air was sticky from the mass of bodies on the dance floor. My body swayed to the beat, my feet ached from the five-inch Louboutin heels I was wearing, and my skin was flushed from the copious amounts of 1990 Dom Pérignon I had consumed.
“Caresa!” My name split through the harsh sound of drums and synthesized piano notes. I rolled my eyes open and looked across our cornered-off section of the club at my best friend.
Marietta was sitting on an oversized plush couch, waving a new bottle of champagne in my direction. Laughing, I followed my throbbing feet to where she sat and slumped down beside her. In seconds, a champagne flute was in my hand and the bubbly was flowing once more.
Marietta sat forward, swishing her long blond hair over her shoulder. She raised her glass as though she was going to make a toast. But instead, her bottom lip jutted out into a pathetic pout.
I tipped my head to one side, silently asking her what was wrong.
“I was going to make a toast to the Duchessa di Parma, my very best friend,” she shouted over a new but similar-to-the-last song. “To my best friend leaving me here in dull old New York to go marry a real-life godforsaken prince in Italy.” Marietta sighed and her shoulders slumped. “But I don’t want to. Because that would mean this night is almost over, and tomorrow I lose my partner-in-crime.” A sudden sadness bloomed in my chest at her words. Then, when her eyes filled with tears, those words became a punch in the gut.
Placing my glass on the table before us, I moved forward and put my hand on her arm. “Marietta, don’t get upset.”
She put down her own drink and grabbed my hand. “I just don’t want to lose you.”
My stomach rolled. “I know,” I said. Then I didn’t say anything else, but I could see Marietta register my unspoken words. I don’t want to go either.
Keeping my hand in hers, I slumped back against the couch and let my eyes drift over the busy dance floor below. I watched the throng of Upper East Siders losing themselves in the music. A pang of fear swept through me.
This really would be my last night in New York. In the morning, I would fly to Italy, where I would live from that day on.
Marietta shuffled closer to me and cast me a watery smile. “How are you doing?” she asked as she squeezed my hand.
“I’m okay. Just nervous, I guess.”
Marietta nodded her head. “And your papa?”
I sighed. “Ecstatic. Overjoyed that his precious daughter will be marrying the prince he chose for me as a child.” I felt a pang of guilt for speaking about him so negatively. “That was uncalled for,” I said. “You know as well as I do, Baroness von Todesco” —Marietta scowled playfully at my use of her title— “that we don’t really get a choice in whom we marry.” I leaned forward and picked up my champagne. I took a long swig, enjoying the feel of the bubbles traveling down my throat. I handed Marietta her glass and raised mine in the air. “To arranged marriages and duty over love!”
Marietta laughed and clinked her glass with mine. “But seriously,” Marietta said, “are you okay? Truly okay?”
I shrugged. “I honestly don’t know how to answer that, Etta. Am I okay with the arranged marriage? I suppose so. Am I okay with moving to Italy permanently? Not really. I love Italy—it’s my home, I was born there—but it’s not New York. Everyone I know is here in America.”
Marietta’s eyes softened with sympathy. “And am I okay with marrying Zeno Savona? The infamous Playboy Prince of Toscana?” I took a deep breath. “I have no idea. I guess that will become apparent in the next three months.”
“In your ‘courting period,’” Marietta said using air quotes, and snorted with laughter. “What a joke. What twenty-three-year-old woman and twenty-six-year-old man need a courting period?”
I laughed at her sassy tone, but then soberly replied, “Ones who don’t know each other at all? Ones who have to see if they can stand each other’s company before sealing their marital fates forever?”
Marietta shuffled closer. “You know as well as I do that you could hate this so-called prince, detest everything he is—and he you—and I’d still be your maid of honor at your wedding on New Year’s Eve.” She sputtered a laugh. “The very fact that the date has been set says it all. This marriage is happening.” Marietta held up her glass, got to her feet and, with arms spread wide, shouted, “Welcome to the life of the European blue bloods of the Upper East Side! Drowning in Prada and Gucci, dripping in diamonds, but having no free will to call our own!”
I laughed, pulling her back down. She broke into hysterics as her ass hit the couch, spilling champagne all over the expensive upholstery. But our laughter waned as the house lights came on one by one. The last of the dance music drifted into silence, and the rich patrons of Manhattan’s most exclusive nightclub began making their way to their limos and town cars. It was three o’clock in the morning, and I had six hours left in the city I loved beyond measure.

Whitney and Mason’s life is perfect. When Beth explained her Seven Year Theory. They scoffed at the idea of the seventh year of marriage being the make it or break it year for most couples. That theory didn’t apply to them. They were the perfect couple. Their brand new house overlooked a spacious lake. Their brand new cars were state of the art. Their careers were taking off at an accelerated rate. Their sex life was incredible. Their lives were perfect.
Mason considered himself incredibly lucky to have a wife like Whitney. She was beautiful, sexy, smart, had a professional attitude toward life and she wasn’t interested in starting a family. When Whitney’s widower brother-in-law was killed leaving his three small children in Whitney and Mason’s charge, Mason is exposed to a new side of Whitney. A side he was not prepared for, a side he never thought he’d see.
Suddenly Mason’s world was filled with diapers and stains. His perfectly coiffed wife quickly transformed into an unkempt mother of three living in jeans and carrying a diaper bag as a purse.
Mason’s needs were no longer being filled. His house was a noisy mess. There was a 6-year-old boy looking to him for fatherly attention. But fatherhood requires a man to live for his children and not himself. Mason was not prepared to do that, but how could he walk away from Whitney in her hour of need?

Most lovers can’t wait to celebrate their first Christmas together –

but for Suzy and Garrett, the special season comes with a few surprises

 SUZY

I got the happily-ever-after that I had always hoped for. My life in New York seems like a fairy-tale – though my knight is not a white one. He is all the colours of the rainbow, and I love him more and more with each passing day.

Despite my happiness, I miss my home. I miss my parents. I miss my friends.

I wish I knew of a way to combine my past life with my present.

Maybe I can wish for a little Christmas magic?

GARRETT

She’s my light – the only one who can see into the depths of my soul. I’ll do anything to keep her happy. I wish she would let me inside her mind so I can help erase the shadows from her eyes.

Our happiness is interrupted when my family find themselves in trouble. I have to help them get back on the right track before it’s too late.

All they want is a Merry Christmas, but how is that possible when the outside world won’t let them?

***Author’s Note: This is a novella in the Believe Series and it is important that you read Fool for Love first.***

EXCERPT

SUZY

“Never thought it would happen,” he whispers. His hand moves from my breast, up my neck, then finally rests on my jaw. He traces my lips with his fingers, and a delicious shiver runs down my spine. The pads are rough, but his touch is as light as a feather.

My heart melts.

“You never thought what would happen?”

His eyes roam my face as he makes me wait for his answer. The heat in them makes my breaths grow more shallow, and it feels as if every part of my being is singed from his fire.

“Never thought I’d find a woman who’d be able to pull me out of the darkness.”

I stop breathing for a moment. My eyes prickle as tears gather in them.

It’s so rare that he talks about his past now, that it always takes me by surprise when he mentions it.

His eyes stop their perusal as he touches his forehead to mine for a short moment.

“Never thought I’d be so lucky,” he murmurs.

My arms constrict around his neck.

“Never thought one woman’s smile would light me up from within like yours always does.”

“Please stop,” I whisper, my voice trembling from the love that I can feel touching my soul in his every word.

“My love.” His lips brush mine, and I lift my head, trying to deepen his kiss. He won’t have any of it, though. Both of his hands come down to frame my face, and his thumbs sweep my hair away, baring me completely before him. As always, I yield to his will, even though patience is the last thing on my mind right now.

“You’re going to make me bawl like a baby,” I sniffle, trying to smile.

He laughs low, the deep rumble that I love so dearly, but it’s gone as quickly as it started.

“I hope I’ll never stop being worthy of the love you have given me so freely.”

Even before he’s done talking, I shake my head.

“I promise – I swear – that’ll never happen, honey.”

AP new - synopsis.jpg
A Christmas novella where everyone gets their just desserts.
Olive had a major crush on Hank in high school. She was the too-smart, slightly chubby girl who gawked as Hank ran track and made all the cheerleaders swoon. After high school, the two went their separate ways. Olive opened a yoga studio and swore off sweets while Hank traveled the world. No problem, right? At least there wasn’t a problem until Hank moved back to town and opened a candy shop across the street from Olive’s studio. Now, Olive will do everything she can to shut her old crush down. But Hank has other plans, and all of them end with an Olive sundae.

Author’s Note: This is a sweet Christmas treat that will leave you satisfied, yet desperate for a little taste of sugar.
 
 
 
 
 
 
“Can you call that number again, dear?” Mrs. Carmichael adjusts her enormous bifocals. “I couldn’t hear it over my cats. They meow something terrible when they’re hungry.”I glance around at the cat-free common room. “Sure. I-14.”

“Thank you.” She stares at her upside down bingo card.

“I wanted to ask you something last night, but I couldn’t quite work up the nerve.” His fingers linger against mine again as he hands me the next ball.

“What?” My voice comes out breathy as I call out the number. We should have had a bingo by now, but I’ve learned everything takes a little longer at the senior center.

He leans over, his warm breath tickling my ear.

“I was wondering what your favorite candy is.”

Goosebumps break out along my neck and arms as I snatch the ball from his hands and announce the next number.

“I don’t like candy.” I glance at him. He’s watching me, eating me up with his eyes. Problem is, I can’t say the sensation is unpleasant. Quite the opposite.

“Come on. Everyone likes candy.”

“I don’t.” His nearness is throwing me off, and I stutter out the next number.

“You sure? I saw the way you looked at my candy apple.”

I huff out a breath. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

He moves closer, our arms touching. “Don’t worry. I won’t tell anyone.” His conciliatory whisper has my heart stutter-stepping. “You look beautiful, by the way.”

I can’t focus on the numbers, not when he’s winding me up like a clock. It doesn’t help that this is the most distracted I’ve been over a man since … Since senior year when I stared at him running track instead of doing my homework. I’ve fallen into the same hole with the same guy, and I can’t seem to get myself free.

“Candy apples.” I keep my voice low.

“What?” God, his voice in my ear sends shivers shooting down my spine.

“I like candy apples the best.”

“I’d like to see you eat one of my candy apples. Extra caramel for you.” He hands me the next ball, his index finger skating along mine. “Something sweet on your tongue.”

My body goes up in flames as our eyes meet, and I call out, “O-69.”

My Review

I love holiday-themed stories, so when I was asked if I’d like to review Celia Aaron’s Christmas Candy, I jumped at the chance. I’d heard good things about her writing style and I thought I’d give it a shot.

Christmas Candy tells the story of what happens when former chubby girl turned yoga instructor Olive is faced with the return of her former crush, Hank–who’s opened a candy shop directly across the street from her yoga studio. Olive is hell bent on trying to close down Hank’s shop, but he’s got other ideas…

Christmas Candy is a fun, quick Christmas read that has great comedic timing and amusing characters . I really liked how Olive and Hank’s chemistry and the snarky, sexy banter between them. This is one of those stories that will have you giggling along with it. So if you like Christmas romances, and you want a quick read with a sexy, snarky but fun feel, then you should definitely read Christmas Candy!

My rating?

Getting to know…Karen King

I thought life would calm down a bit in November, but it’s been even more hectic than October. It started with NaNoWriMo, add to it a crazy blizzard here in Stockholm, then a death in the family, add a few more unexpected events and you get a month that has made me want to hibernate. But now I am trying to find my bearings again. Whew.

We’re back with another instalment of Getting to know… and today we’ve got author Karen King with us. Karen writes sassy, contemporary romance just right for reading on the beach. ‘I do – or do I?’ is her first chick-lit for Accent Press and has recently been nominated for the RONA (Romantic Novel of the Year Award). She has also written several short stories for women’s magazine and had 120 children’s books published.When she isn’t writing, Karen likes travelling, watching the ‘soaps’ and reading. Give her a good book and a box of chocolates and she thinks she’s in Heaven. So let’s get to know….Karen King!

kk-head-and-shoulders

Author Karen King

So tell me, Karen, what is your favorite part of being a writer? 

Getting a letter or email from someone who’s enjoyed reading my book. That makes my week! It’s so heartening to think that someone has not only read my book and enjoyed it, but also taken the time to write and tell me so. I really appreciate that.

I know what you mean! Sometimes fan mail can make up for all the times I’ve wanted to give up on a difficult story or character. Or when my writing day hasn’t gone as planned. What would you say is the most difficult part of being a writer and how do you deal with it?

Finding time to write down all the ideas that are whizzing around in my head. I have notebooks everywhere, failing that I’ll write on anything, receipts, serviettes, the back of my hand.

i-do

Karen’s latest novel, I Do? …Or Do I?

I agree. Sometimes it feels like there aren’t enough hours in a day. I try to jot plot ideas down as soon as they pop into my head. Sometimes I lose the notes and have to try to remember them…well, it happens sometimes. 🙂 So tell me, with all the ideas buzzing around, are you a plotter or pantster?

A bit of both. I like to know my characters really well before I start so I’ll write character profiles for them, and then do a basic outline of the story. After that I start writing and let it flow.

It’s the same for me. Started off as a pantser, but now I am a little of both. By the way, I love the cover of I Do…Or Do I? I just want to take a minute to share with my readers the blurb: 

Local journalist Cassie is getting married to hot-shot lawyer, reliable Timothy, and his mother Sylvia, who Cassie has nicknamed ‘Monster-in-Law’, wants to plan the entire wedding. When Sylvia books the exclusive ID Images to take photographs of the extravagant do, Cassie has no idea what she’s walking into. 



The elusive JM, ID Images’ newest photographer, just so happens to be Jared, Cassie’s first love and ex-fiancé, who broke off their engagement to travel and take photos of far-reaching wonders. He’s back to pay for his next wild adventure. 



Cassie decides it’s best to pretend not to know him, but when she’s asked to write an article for her newspaper, she’s tasked with a column surrounding all things wedding related. When Cassie jokingly writes a column meant for herself depicting her situation, a co-worker submits it in place of the real article and it’s soon making headlines, with readers asking the age old question – Who Will She Choose? 

Sounds like the perfect book for this Thanksgiving weekend!  So, readers, if I Do?…Or Do I sounds like your cup of tea, make sure you pick up a copy. Get your copy here:

Amazon – Accent Press – Waterstones – Book Depository – W.H.Smith 

What’s your typical writing day like? Do you write full-time? 

I switch on the computer as soon as I’m showered and dressed, then it’s butt on chair, fingers on keyboard. I answer urgent emails, do a bit of social media then start writing. I’ll carry on writing all day, with the occasional coffee and social media breaks. Often, I’ll write for a couple of hours in the evening too. But I only get a couple of actual ‘writing days’ a week, other days I’m marking assignments (I’m a writing tutor), running courses, visiting schools and other stuff so might write in the evenings.

I write whenever I can snatch away time for it. Still working full-time, but hoping to eventually write full-time. When you write, do you imagine any particular actors or actresses as your leads? Or do you find inspiration elsewhere?

I don’t imagine actors or actresses as my leads but I do look through magazines and cut out pictures of people similar to how I imagine my heroine and hero to look. I also do a Pinterest board of work in progress and pin pictures of things related to my plot on it. For example, for ‘I do?…or do I?’ I pinned lots of wedding related pics, as well as pics of France and Venice which both feature in the story.

Karen’s writing room – organised chaos 🙂 

Another Pinterest enthusiast! I do the same. I love Pinterest. I even have a board for my dream writing space. Right now, I do most of my writing in my messy home office/guest bedroom, while sitting on my living room couch or in cafés. What abut you? Do you have a favorite writing space?

I’m lucky enough to have my own room to write in. It’s usually very messy, but it’s organized chaos and I know exactly where everything is. If I tidy up I’ve had it, I can’t find anything for weeks.

I am with you there! Whenever I clean my writing space, I can’t find any of the things I need. But when I don’t clean it, the chaos can sometimes overwhelm me. Let’s talk reading. What are you reading now?

I’m reading The Pact by Jodi Picoult.

I read that one a few years ago and loved it. She is one of my favourite authors. Are there any subjects that are taboo for you when it comes to reading or writing?

Horror – I scare easily.

Once upon a time, I wanted to write horror. Nowadays, I prefer writing love stories. Now what about social media? Some people say we authors can’t survive without it.What’s your take on social media? Do you think it’s vital for us?

Yes, I think it is. One well known publisher told me they wouldn’t even consider a book unless the author had over 1,500 followers on Twitter. I like Social Media, it’s a great way to interact with people but it’s easy to while away hours reading the latest Facebook posts or chatting on Twitter so I try to restrict myself. Twitter is my favourite platform, then Facebook and Instagram. I’m on Google+ and Pinterest too but am not as active on them.

What was the best piece of writing advice you ever received?

It was back in the early days of my writing career when I was writing for several children’s magazines and had to come up with story ideas at very short notice, sometimes having to write one in a couple of hours. An editor told me to ‘give a character a problem and solve it’. I added ‘in an unexpected way’ to that and it’s been the basis of my stories ever since.

What advice would you give to novice writers?
Stop faffing about and get that first draft down. Then you can go back and reread, revise and rewrite. If you don’t write something you have nothing to hone.

Thanks again for joining us, Karen! Readers, make sure you follow Karen so you can keep up with the latest! Follow Karen here:

Melanie Moreland

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.

Jacquelyn Ayres

I am a domestic engineer (born and raised in New Jersey) whose sole responsibility is guiding three young, impressionable kids into becoming phenomenal adults. This challenging yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine), and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work all of this magic from the beautiful state of New Hampshire.

Before becoming a domestic goddess (not really), I spent over a decade working in the medical field, where I wore more hats than the queen.

I have loved the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl. When I wasn’t reading about people and the places they lived, I created my own characters and adventures. Finally, I started putting a pen to paper and allowing my characters to come to life. When I don’t have a pen in hand, you can often find me laughing at the conversations my characters are having in my head.

Reading and writing are her therapy, her solace and often the one thing that gets her through the long nights. (That and copious amounts of caffeine and sugar!)
She loves to connect with readers, so please feel free to friend/follow her on Facebook, IG and Twitter or join her reader’s group, E’s Elite ❤
