LOVE HURTS DUET by M ROBINSON

“I want a guy who wants to be with me. The one who will do anythin’ to make me happy. The man who puts me first before everythin’ and anyone. I want the fairytale, my own Prince Charmin’. I know my worth, and I won’t stop till I find him. I refuse to settle. It’s just not in me.”

We loved how Monica Robinson turned this duet around and we found ourselves rooting for Harley and Jackson. The misunderstandings, the secrecy and the pretence all combined in conspiring to stand in the way of a true love. Harley and Jackson’s very own chaotic version of love. It was quite the emotional rollercoaster and we absolutely wanted to bang their heads together a few times. What they both let stand in their way of finding true happiness in each other’s arms was agonising at times. Monica Robinson threw in a few twists, which we loved, and she made sure we truly felt those important emotions in Love You Now. There’s a fine line between love and hate and Monica Robinson got it just right in our opinion. Love will always win!

Interview with Avanti Centrae, Author of VanOps: The Lost Power

What can you tell us about your new release, VanOps: The Lost Power?

It’s a DA VINCI CODE meets TOMB RAIDER type award-winning thriller, and an instant international bestseller! Readers are really responding to the action-packed mix of intrigue, history, science and mystery. The story begins with a double homicide on a foggy morning in the Napa Valley and accelerates from there.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

When I was young, I didn’t always feel like I fit in, and had an overwhelming mix of emotions that I didn’t know how to handle. Books were my best friends, and authors my heroes. I’ve always wanted to write to keep other readers company during the dark nights and lonely days. Adventure is my favorite activity, and has inspired my novels.

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

I’ve listened to the entire WHEEL OF TIME series at least three times, so it’s right up there. Other favorites include James Rollins’ MAP OF BONES, and Steve Berry’s THE ROMANOV PROPHECY. Carlos Ruiz Zafron did an amazing job with the CEMETARY OF FORGOTTEN BOOKS series, and I recently discovered ORPHAN X by Gregg Hurwitz. All very well done.

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

James Patterson is the most successful author of our time. I’d love to learn his secrets to sniffing out successful story lines, and talk with him about his marketing techniques.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

While outlining, I love to design surprising plot twists. Pulling all the threads of a story together can be like solving a Rubik’s cube, and that’s a lot of fun for me.

What is a typical day like for you?

It depends on where the book is in its lifecycle. Right now, with the release of THE LOST POWER, I’m spending a lot of my time enjoying interviews like this one, as well as polishing book two and designing book three. When I’m done outlining a work and am in the middle of writing it, I’ll spend the day editing the prior day’s work, researching and writing the next chapter. When I need a break from the desk, I throw the ball for my German Shepherd puppy in the big back yard.

What scene in VanOps: The Lost Power was your favorite to write?

There’s an argument just over half way through the book between Maddy Marshall, a tall dark-haired app designer and aikido instructor, and Bear Thorenson, a broad-shouldered marine who has been harboring feelings for Maddy and a secret alliance with VanOps. In that scene, Bear reveals he’s working with VanOps and Maddy is quite angry about it, which sets up a dramatic fight between the two of them. Also, Tim Campbell, the audio book narrator, did a fantastic job capturing their pent up emotions.

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

There’s a refrain in THE LOST POWER that mirrors a practical tool that I use in my life: Listen and Feel The Power. In the story, Maddy is a martial arts black belt who has never felt her own life force, or ki, energy. She has to learn to feel her energy, and she does that by first listening. Really stopping to listen to others, to hear the birds, to hear the pulse of life in your veins, brings with it a host of advantages, including giving Maddy an edge over her opponents. It’s something we can all learn from her.

Interview with Nicholas Bundock, Author of Hillgate Hall

What can you tell us about your new release, Hillgate Hall?

It’s about a single mother surviving in a small English village. Her ex-husband and his awful (and rich) girlfriend are the bane of her life. Her antiques business is a disaster and she mixes with some fairly seedy characters. When she gets a teaching post at a local private school, her money worries seem at an end. But far worse awaits. It’s a suspense story with a gentle romance.
Hillgate Hall is the second novel I’ve had published, but I wrote it before The Mirror Shop, at least in draft form. Writing in the first person as a woman was a challenge (and a risk.) I’ve been encouraged by female friends who’ve read Hillgate Hall and tell me they enjoy Phoebe, the main character. I’ve also been told it’s a #MeToo story, but I didn’t consciously write it as such. The first draft was in fact over 10 years ago.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

As a child, I found books to be some of my best friends, and from an early age I made up stories for my brothers. I had to wait a long time before anything appeared in print.
Landscape, particularly in Norfolk, has been an inspiration. Phoebe in Hillgate Hall has a longing to return to the moors of her native Yorkshire.
Malcolm Ross, my English teacher at secondary school, was patient with my early efforts and more helpful than he ever realized. Later, John Fairfax, a co-founder of the Arvon Foundation for writers, was a huge help.

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

That’s difficult, but here goes.
The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte
Travels with my Aunt – Graham Greene
The Secret History – Donna Tartt
Alice’s Adventures in in Wonderland – Lewis Carroll

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

Stephen Fry (he used to live a mile away from me in Norfolk, but we never met.)

‘Stephen, would you agree that just as identity and identity politics has dominated literature in recent years, so the survival of the planet will be an inescapable theme for serious writers in the future?’

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I love the way characters reveal themselves. It’s almost as if it’s not me at work, but the person in the story deciding what to do and say. If I find them going adrift, it feels like it’s my fault in not listening to them. Can be weird. Fortunately, other writers have the same feeling.

What is a typical day like for you?

Early morning’s best for me – before dawn sometimes, when there is no chance of interruptions. Afternoons are best for re-reading what I’ve written, and revising. I try not to read other novels when I’m writing, and so when I have a break for a week or two, I devour the pile waiting for me – usually what friends have recommended. I still work as a valuer of antiques and fine art, which gets me away from my desk – sometimes, but not always, a welcome break.

What scene in Hillgate Hall was your favorite to write?

I try not to have favourites. Some writers say, ‘Slay your darlings,’ which I take to mean that when you really love something you’ve written, it probably wants cutting out. Hard advice to give oneself, but one I try to follow. That said, I enjoyed writing about the teachers’ common room at Hillgate Hall, and the ghastly staff.

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

In my writing life two quotes I keep in mind:
Robert Graves: Advice given to him by a teacher, ‘Your best friend is your wastepaper basket.’ Nowadays we might say, ‘Your best friend is your Delete key.’
John Fairfax ‘Words have to be taken by the scruff of the neck and shaken into shape.’

Interview with Lindsay Buroker, author of Agents of the Crown

What can you tell us about your new release, Agents of the Crown?

This is a bundle of all five books in my Agents of the Crown series, so it will let people read the entire adventure in one swoop. It’s a fantasy with a bit of romance and a lot of action and mystery. I gave a nod to all the Tolkien/Dungeons & Dragons-inspired fantasy I read in my youth, and there are elves and dwarves in this one. Maybe even a dragon later in the series!

What books are currently on your nightstand?

I’ve been reading some urban fantasy, and I’m finally picking up Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series. A couple of my beta readers adore it and have been trying to get me to read it for ages, so here I am, rolling on Book 1.

What advice would you give your teenage self?

Buy real estate, laugh.

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

Reading or writing. I’m a bit of a work-a-holic.

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

Long hikes with my dogs where I can relax and day dream and don’t run into any other people on the trail. I’m not a hermit most of the time, but I really enjoy opportunities to reset and not have to interact with anyone. And it’s a great time to work out stories in your head!

What scene in Agents of the Crown was your favorite to write?

The very end when the heroine Zenia is… oh, that would be such a spoiler. I can’t share that. But everything comes together nicely for her in the end. 🙂
