WAITING FOR MY QUEEN by GEORGIA CATES

‘The story will begin like this: Once upon a time, a devil fell in love with an angel.’

It’s been a while since we last read a Georgia Cates book, so we were so excited to see this Author was releasing a mafia romance set in the 70s, and a dark one at that. Waiting for my Queen did not start gently, rather it had quite the exciting and powerful beginning.  We were immediately drawn into the mafia romance of Emilia and Luca and were compelled to find out how this anti-hero could possibly redeem himself in Emilia’s eyes. After all, his atrocious acts of dominance and control were not forgivable in our eyes.

WAITING FOR MY QUEEN by GEORGIA CATES

Interview with Jo Fenton, Author of Revelation

What can you tell us about your new release, Revelation?

It’s set in early 1989 in Manchester, and follows 2 students, Becky and Dan, in the aftermath of the suspicious death of their friend, Rick.

Revelation is a story of unrequited love, grief, friendship, prejudice, revenge and the challenges of being a student in the late 80’s.

It’s a crime thriller, so there is plenty of intrigue, suspense and suspicion.

This is the start of a series, and Revelation is a prequel – with the next in the series starting 30 years later in the present day.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

My husband always said I should write a book, but it was a combination of events that got me started. Early in 2011, I did a touch typing course, which allowed me to get my ideas down on paper in a manageable format, and I started by writing a few short stories.

Then in October of that year, I heard about NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month. My husband suggested I should give it a go, and I sat down to think about what I could write about. The concept of my first novel, The Brotherhood, popped into my head within about 5 minutes, and 6 years later (almost to the day) I finished writing the last draft, and starting submitting it to agents and publishers.

I was lucky enough to be taken on by Crooked Cat in December 2017. They have published The Brotherhood, its sequel The Refuge, and are now, under the Darkstroke imprint, publishing Revelation.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

Gaudy Night – Dorothy L Sayers (beautifully written, character driven, and tightly plotted. Inspirational.)

On The Night of The Seventh Moon – Victoria Holt (love the dark gothic intrigue, and the romantic but terrifying setting.)

Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte (another brilliantly written novel, with fascinating characters and a disturbing dark side.)

The Harry Potter series – JK Rowling (the whole series is so well constructed. Attention to detail is perfect, and the plotting is immaculate. Brilliant world building and character development.)

His Dark Materials series – Philip Pullman (I only read this recently, but was struck with another example of fantastic world building, plotting and character development. I also loved how the author explores current issues through his fantasy world.)

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

JK Rowling – one of my questions, that has been burning a hole in my brain for a long time, is whether the cat, Mrs Norris, was based on the character from Mansfield Park. I’m sure I could find some other questions to ask too.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I love escaping into a world of my own creation, and having the power to dictate what happens in that world. Although sometimes my characters tell me what’s going to happen, and that’s pretty exciting too.

What is a typical day like for you?

I have a full time job in Clinical Research as a manager, so I have to fit my writing in around that. I try to write for 15-30 minutes a day before work, as my brain is often frazzled by the end of the day. During the evenings, I usually manage to fit in some time for social media and marketing activities, but my favourite writing time is at weekends, when my husband and kids are at football, and I get a couple of hours to sit and immerse myself in my latest work in progress.

What scene in Revelation was your favorite to write?

There’s a scene about half way through, when Dan is struggling with his grief so badly, that he finds himself on a bridge over a railway. I loved writing that scene, because it allowed me to delve into the emotions that led him there and his subsequent terror.

Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?

I have a set of rules that I try to live by:

‘Challenge yourself to be as amazing as possible.

Be kind to others. Most people will be kind back. The others aren’t worth worrying about.

Move out of your comfort zone whenever possible. Your comfort zone will become huge.’

The Story Behind Swinging Strike by Kimberly Readnour

By Kimberly Readnour

What do you do when those sexy baseball players won’t get out of your head? Well, you start a new series. Yep, you read that right. I have a brand-new, stand-alone spin-off series, Cessna U Wildcats, coming your way. The leadoff hitter is Swinging Strike, an enemies to lovers romance featuring Cara Gonzalez and Braxton Smith.

Cara is the strong-willed sister to AJ Gonzalez from the Bad Boys Redemption series. Wanting to escape her past drama and focus solely on school, she transfers to Cessna University. With one semester under her belt, the remaining two years should be smooth sailing. No drama, no dilemmas, and more importantly, no hot athletes to foil her plans.

Insert Braxton Smith, captain of the baseball team. He has it all from talents to looks, but struggles aren’t always visible. The moment I penned Braxton down on paper I fell in love with him. I knew my months-long journey into writing these characters were going to be a fun ride. People ask all the time how I create the stories, but honestly, they create themselves. Braxton was one of those characters that swooped onto the pages and took over.

Letting go of characters is hard. They become real. When you’re done writing their story, it’s like saying goodbye. When the other baseball series wrapped up, I was left with Cara’s character and couldn’t bear not having her story told. The rest escalated from there and Cessna U’s world developed.

I have lots of hot athletes coming your way, starting with the captain of the baseball team. I hope you enjoy Braxton and Cara as much as I had fun writing them!

Interview with Jamie Blair, Author of A Dog Day’s Night

What can you tell us about your new release, A Dog Day’s Night?

When a motorcycle club rolls into town and the leader opens a biker bar, it stirs up more than dust in Metamora.

The little canal town is known for its grist mill, antique shops, and bed and breakfasts, not for hosting a parade of noisy motorcycles. Cameron Cripps Hayman’s neighbors are up in arms about the Night Hounds Motorcycle Club and even start a petition to get the mayor to ban the new establishment. But the mayor says he doesn’t have the power to kick a business owner out and there’s nothing in the town statutes against opening a bar.

When the Night Hound’s leader is run off the road and left for dead, his wife comes to Cam and her Action Agency to track down the hit and run suspect. With her team down to two members, will they be able to solve the case like they’ve always done in the past? They’ll give it their best rip roaring try!

What books are currently on your nightstand?

I’m currently reading Pushing Up Daisies by MC Beaton.

What advice would you give your teenage self?

Don’t be afraid to take risks, and don’t spend time worrying about anything out of your control.

I’d like to say cleaning or writing, but I’ll be honest. I’d probably spend an extra hour sleeping or watching TV.

What makes your world go round? Why does it bring you joy?

My kids and my dog. They’re the loves of my life and I enjoy every minute I spend with them. My kids are teenagers and they’re always gone these days, so when they’re around I’m always bugging them to spend time with their old mom.

What scene in A Dog Day’s Night was your favorite to write?

There’s a scene where three of the main characters try to fill a waterbed. I laughed the whole way through writing it.

The Story Behind No Damaged Goods by Nicole Snow

By Nicole Snow

Opposites collide? Oh, it’s all that and so much more in my latest Heroes of Heart’s Edge book, No Damaged Goods. An unlikely small town love story with a side of madness.

Blake Silverton’s standalone story has been a long time in coming. Between serving as the fierce small-town fire chief by day and moonlighting as a rough velvet talkin’ radio love doctor, he’s also a full time single dad to a mouthy sixteen-year-old girl waist deep in teenage rebellion. The last thing he needs – the very last – is a sunshiny slip of a woman colliding with his world.

Peace didn’t plan on making Heart’s Edge home. But one unexpected van fire introduces her to a longer stay and one very handsome grumpasaurus firefighter who also becomes her late night radio obsession.

She just wants to sing her heart out making music. He’s damaged goods to the core. A walking, snarling Bad Idea of a man who’s more than a little irresistible to Peace. Then a brush with a dangerous arsonist lands her on his doorstep, and a date with destiny gets way too real.

If you’ve read my books before, you know I adore the hulking alpha protector trope with a side of suspense. That’s all here, but there’s so much baggage for these two to unpack on a long, bumpy road to the Happily Ever After.

The best love stories ain’t easy. This one is scorched freaking earth, which makes it so achingly beautiful when the magnetic pull between these two hearts finally sticks. Don’t miss this hot, wild, and emotional standalone slow-burn – it’s Free in Kindle Unlimited!
