Authors Blog Tour…A New Approach

 

Belinda Y. Hughes tagged me in this blog tour, which is a spin-off of the Writing Process blog tour, a blog tour she has participated in before.

Here are Belinda’s blog tour questions for me:

If you were beginning your writing career today, what would you do differently?

I would learn about social networking immediately. Authors are responsible for much of their own promotion and they need to understand the platforms so many readers use today. When I signed my first contract, Facebook, Twitter and Google might as well have been words from a foreign language. I’ve spent the last couple of years running to catch up while self educating on the vast wastelands of the internet.  

What’s the one thing about you that might surprise readers?

I’m a chronic hair twirler. Seriously, I always have a hank of hair entwined in my fingers. In fact, when I cut my hair in preparation for chemotherapy, my girlfriends saved a hank and sewed it into a headband so I could twirl while I was bald. 🙂

Tell us a little about your main character in your latest book. 

Jane is a bit of a klutz but it’s her free spirit that earned her the nickname, Calamity Jane. She lives life on her terms, despite her family’s disapproval, and deals with the fallout from her choices with a shrug, and often, a grin.

 

The Wild Rose Press

Amazon

What are some of your favorites…

Color?  Green. Like the hills around our ranch in the mountains.

 

Food?  Lobster. I grew up in New England, you see. Yummmmm!

 

Place? Well, you saw the pic of the road to my ranch and it’s pretty terrific up there, but I grew up surrounded by water. The ocean, a calm lake, I love them both.

 

 

Now, I am tagging the following authors in this post:

 JM Stewart

JM is the author of passionate, heartfelt contemporary romance. She’s a wife, a mother, a spiritualist, and lover of puppies, and happily addicted to coffee and chocolate. She lives in the rainy Pacific Northwest with her husband, two sons, and two very spoiled dogs. She’s a hopeless romantic who believes everybody should have their happily-ever-after and has been devouring romance novels for as long as she can remember. Writing them has become her obsession.

*****

Georgie Tyler

Georgie Tyler lives on Sydney’s leafy North Shore with her husband and three children. After years of being a stay-at-home mum she decided to branch out and return to university to study teaching and pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a writer. When she’s not teaching or writing she likes to watch movies, catch up with family and friends, and has been known to dally on social media.

*****

And last but certainly not least…

LaVerne Clark

A proud Kiwi, I write Romance. Whether its fantasy or suspense, I love to take my readers off-the-beaten track to explore hidden pockets of New Zealand.

Like the heroines in my stories, I married my own gorgeous hero and have been blessed with both a son and daughter. I’m involved with the charitable organization, “Greyhounds As Pets” after falling in love and adopting my own ex-racing greyhound. Perhaps, in the back of my mind was the old adage of owners looking like their dogs; but sadly, my legs don’t seem to have got any longer and my waist hasn’t shrunk to minuscule proportions. But on a good note, at least my nose isn’t any longer!

 

I want to thank all of the authors who participated in this blog tour.  Let’s keep it going!  Feel free to link back to my post and tag other authors!  Happy posting!  🙂

Love requires a leap of faith…

She’s everything he wants…

For years, Kyle Morgan has hidden his true feelings from the gorgeous girl next door that he grew up loving and protecting. But when she shows up at his apartment in the middle of the night, desperately needing comfort and support, his iron will begins to waver…

…and the only thing he can’t bear to lose.

Kyle was always the big brother Cecelia Anton never had, but suddenly her goofy best friend has become a sexy man she can’t keep her thoughts—or hands—off of. As their deep connection melts into uncontrollable desire, Ceci is willing to put it all on the line for a shot at true love. Only Kyle is keeping a terrible secret about Ceci’s past that could destroy not only their lifelong friendship but their happily-ever-after…

For a moment, she stared, her eyes searching his, then she straightened her shoulders. “Why’d you kiss me?”

Panic curled through him, sending his pulse pounding into his rib cage. Damn. Why hadn’t he expected her to ask that? But he couldn’t answer it. To do so would be tempting fate. An intense need for distance seized him. Half afraid he’d lose his mind and do something else he’d regret, like pull her into his arms and show her why he’d kissed her, he shot to his feet.

He flashed her a smile he knew had to look as phony as it felt. “Headache’s better. Thanks.”

He didn’t wait for a response but strode toward the yard.

“I need to know, Kyle.”

His answer sat on the tip of his tongue, but the voice of reason sounded in his head. Don’t say it. Whatever you do, do not say it. Just keep walking.

Her soft footsteps sounded behind him. “You can’t just do something like that and walk away and expect me not to question it. You blow hot and cold, do you know that? I know desire when I see it, yet you just keep walking away.”

“Ever think maybe I wanted to kiss you?” The words left his mouth on a hoarse whisper, and God help him, a desperate need to see her eyes seized him. He turned to find her directly behind him. She stared for a fraction of a second too long, heat and curiosity blazed in her eyes. A heartbeat later, a light blush stole into her cheeks, but she didn’t move, didn’t say a word.

Everything inside of him ground to a halt, his mind twisting off in another direction. I’ll be damned. If ever he needed a confirmation, there it was. Whatever had happened between them was definitely not one-sided.
