Interview with Claire Contreras, author of Half Truths

What can you tell us about your new release, Half Truths?
It is a romantic suspense novel set in a university. The heroine is a transfer student who goes looking for answers as to what happened to a missing girl she used to know when she gets reeled into a secret society.

What or who inspired you to become an author?
My father was a writer. I knew I would follow in his footsteps when the voices in my head wouldn’t shut up.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
The Bronze Horseman, The Shining, Since We Fell, The Nightingale, Pretty Girls

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
Stephen King. I’d probably ask him if I could borrow his brain for a little while.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

Finding out what happens to the characters in my story.

What is a typical day like for you?

Pretty boring. I do the typical mom routine in the morning, try to get a workout in, write, write, write, and back to the mom routine in the afternoon.

What scene in Half Truths was your favorite to write?

It’s too spoilery to say, but it’s in chapter forty-nine

Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
Seize the day.

Interview with Z.L. Arkadie, author of Enthrall

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

I believe it’s my best work yet, and was mighty fun to write. I love writing tortured heroes who are not cliche. I hate reading or writing stories that shove square pegs into round holes. This book/trilogy that does not do that and yet still delivers on telling the sort of romance that readers find satisfying.

What books are currently on your nightstand?

I’ve just finished reading “Inside Out” by Demi Moore and before that “Education” by Tara Westover.

What advice would you give your teenage self?

Get therapy sooner! Therapy helped me become less codependent and more self-aware and that has forever changed my life.

If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?

Relaxing after a hard day of work.

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

I want to avoid giving a complex author-like answer here so I’ll simply say loving the people in my life, especially when they have birthdays and there’s birthday cake! Why? Because loving people and birthday cake are both so delicious.

What scene in Enthrall was your favorite to write?

I loved writing all the scenes between Spencer and Dr. Sharma. Males are often depicted two-dimensionally. Those scenes aid in allowing my readers to experience Spencer three-dimensionally.

KISS AN ANGEL by SUSAN ELIZABETH PHILLIPS

5 'I'm absolutely in love with this book' Stars!

"You're such a damned romantic. Sometimes when I see you looking at me, I have the feeling you're not seeing me at all. Instead, you're seeing the way you want me to be."

One of my reading pleasures is revisiting SEP's stories I've read and loved. Imagine when I discovered one I hadn't read before! It was like winning the book lottery. Seriously, these books are like a nice warm hug, they're like coming home and I loved this book so, so much! I loved Daisy, Alex, the circus setting and the circus animals…oh little Tater completely stole my heart!

If you haven't yet experienced the incredible work of Susan Elizabeth Phillips, you really are missing out. I could sit and read an SEP book every day. They're emotional, passionate, sweet, humorous, swoony - well, everything you could want in a romance book! Another winner from one of my all-time fave authors.

SEP has a knack of writing a really good hero. One who makes us work for his affection, for his love, they're as tough as they are soft, as prickly as they are loving…once you scratch beneath the surface, that is. And Alex Markov struck quite the wounded hero who was certainly a bit of an arse, but to see him crack….oh just take my heart and shred it right now!

Daisy Devreaux, what a doll! Sure she could be a bit whimsical, and she had the tendency to lead with her heart - but scatty Daisy was an absolute sweetheart. There was a time I was reading with choked up emotion clutching my heart because Daisy’s hurt was so palpable and I felt it.....I mean I really felt it. So absorbed was I in the moment I didn't even realise the tears were streaming down my cheeks.
