How does it feel to be doing a blog tour again? Getting a sense of deja vu?
I’m delighted to be ‘touring’ again. I had so much fun last time connecting with readers and other authors. And this time I’m not as daunted and am much more relaxed. Plus, I love getting to connect with people again on different blogs that I may have met last time.
You’re a well established Harlequin Special Editions author now. Would you like to change imprints? Try something new for a change?
I truly love writing for Harlequin Special Editions. They have long been my favourite series romance to read so being able to write them is a dream come true to me. I love the strong sense of family and community in the books and the heroes are always so wonderfully ‘real’. As for something new, well I have plans for a Single Title book in the next year or so and am currently working on a novella. The wonderful thing about
being a writer at this time is there are so many opportunities opening up and so many different ways that as an author, I can connect with readers.
What’s the best thing about having a new book out?
There are so many great things about having a new book out. Brand new covers…new characters to talk about on social media…new people to connect with through blogs etc. And my favourite part, which is readers sending me emails to say how much they liked the book. And the knowledge that another book is being written at the same time.
What’s harder, writing or publicizing?
Honestly, I don’t find writing hard. I love it. I love that I can have a career doing what I’ve always dreamed of doing. I love creating characters and giving my hero and heroine their happy-ever-after. And I like the publicity side too….I love working with Nas from Romance Book Promotions and being a guest on blogs like this…doing giveaways etc. It’s all part of the journey for me and I’m grateful every day that I have the opportunity to do it.
Can you sum up your book in a Tweet?
The last line from the back of the book ….. He kissed her. And reawakened the passion that could change their lives…forever.
Can you share your future plans?
So many! I’ve just been contracted to write three more books for Special Edition which is very exciting. And I have a Single Title project in the wings and a novella…so the future looks very bright.
Thank you for having me here today. I have a copy of Date With Destiny to give away to one commenter.
DATE WITH DESTINY
Financier Grace Preston did fourteen-hour days in New York City. She didn’t do small towns in Australia. Not since she’d fled almost twenty years ago. But when a personal trauma sent her home-with a secret she couldn’t reveal-the last person she needed was her first love. Local cop Cameron Jakowski had loved Grace for most of his life. But he wanted marriage and family and she didn’t. He was small town, while she was big city-and lived half a world away. But for now she was right here-a walking, talking temptation. One he managed to avoid…until he made one mistake. He kissed her. And reawakened the passion that could change their lives…forever.
