Interview with Ava Ryan, Author of The Billionaire’s Beauty

What can you tell us about your new release, The Billionaire’s Beauty?

The Billionaire’s Beauty is a modern and sexy take on Beauty and the Beast, with gruff alpha boss Griffin “The Beast” Black unwillingly falling for his feisty executive assistant Bellamy Forest. Office romance. One night stand. Enemies-ish to lovers. Emotional ups and downs. Happy ending. It’s got all the feels!

What books are currently on your nightstand?

I’m reading Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s Finding Freedom about Harry and Meghan. Very engaging. I feel like a fly on the wall!

What advice would you give your teenage self?

Easy. Don’t worry so much. Things usually work out.

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

Also easy. Reading or napping. I’d love to say eating, but that seems like a bad idea.

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

My family. Giving my dogs and cats ear scritches. Traveling (when possible). Anything that makes me smile.

What scene from The Billionaire’s Beauty was your favorite to write?

I’m laughing as I write this. There’s a scene where Bellamy makes manicotti for dinner but Griffin behaves like a jackass in his ongoing efforts to keep her at an emotional arm’s length and makes her angry. I call it Manicotti-gate. You’ll see. 😉

Interview with C.C. Wood, Author of Wild For You

What can you tell us about your new release, Wild For You?

Wild for You is the second book in my latest small town romcom trilogy. The books can be read separately but they are even more fun when read in order.

What books are currently on your nightstand?

Swing and Mishap by Tara Sivec, Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews, and The Adventures and the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes.

What advice would you give your teenage self?

Don’t compare yourself to others. It’s the thief of joy. And stop worrying so much about what other people think. They don’t have to live your life and what makes them happy probably won’t make you happy.

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

Either sleeping or playing with my daughter. Or reading.

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

My family, especially my daughter. She’s seven and one of the funniest, kindest, and smartest people I know.

What scene from Wild For You was your favorite to write?

Oh, definitely the scene between Sierra, Ben, and Gary. See, Gary is a raccoon that Sierra’s best friend, Cam, has been feeding since he was small, so he’s practically tame. However, he and Sierra love to hate each other. Ben thought she was exaggerating how much Gary the Evil Raccoon hates Sierra until they happen to see him in the backyard one afternoon. After that encounter, Ben is definitely a believer in Gary’s evil ways.

Interview with Measha Stone, Author of Hound

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

Hound is book four in my Ever After Series. It’s a stand alone novel loosely based on the story of Fox and the Hound. Jackson is like a hound with a bone, he won’t let go one he’s gotten a hold of it, and Kegan is sly like a fox. When they get together, sparks fly. He wants to know her secrets, and he won’t stop until he does.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but I never thought it would be an actual possibility. My husband is to be credited with pushing me to start putting my work out there. Thanks to his encouragement, I went back to school for creative writing and then began my publishing journey.

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

Nora Roberts. She’s written an astounding number of novels; I’d love to ask her how she keeps her material fresh.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

The escape it gives me.  I’m honest that I don’t write my stories for my readers. I write for myself and just have fun with the stories. Thankfully, readers enjoy the journeys of my characters as much as I do.

What is a typical day like for you?

I’m a pretty structured person, so unless there is an appointment or meeting that I have to attend it’s pretty standard every day. Get up and get dressed first thing, feed the dog, make sure the kids are up for school, have breakfast and coffee. Nothing important happens until I’ve had my coffee. I homeschool my son, so that takes up the morning. The afternoon I spend with my daughters helping with homework or just hanging out. I work in the late afternoons either writing, doing business stuff or both, then spend the rest of the night with the family.

What scene from Hound was your favorite to write?

The hunt. I love writing pet play because the characters can have so much fun with it. And being hunted down by Jackson in the woods sounds like an amazing way to spend an afternoon.

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

Make it a great day! – While other mom’s send their kids off to school with a “have a great day” I tell mine to “Make it a great day!”. It helps remind me that I’m in control of my day, and I can make it as great as I want.

Interview with Isabel Jolie, Author of Lost on the Way

What can you tell us about your new release, Lost on the Way?

Lost on the Way is a different take on the friends to lovers trope. Jason and Maggie have been friends for years, but their relationship has become unhealthy and toxic. The two struggle with how to adjust as their relationship evolves and as they face the changes they individually must make.

What books are currently on your nightstand?

I’m currently reading Reckless Kiss by Amelia Wilde and Waiting for Max by Ella Jade will be my next read. Both are on my phone. I do have a Kindle reader, but read almost everything on my phone. That’s probably why I’m slowly going blind.

What advice would you give your teenage self?

Don’t stress over all the little stuff. Focus on the long-term, because you’re barely going to remember all the things that have you worked up right now. College is going to be a blast, and when you make it to your twenties, those are the years that will be everything. Oh, and don’t bother spending money on getting that film developed. Save your money for a day when you need it (cause it’s coming). You’ll lose all those photos anyway and in about fifty percent of them the flash didn’t work.

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

Going for a walk or reading. Or playing a game with my family.

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

My daughters and my husband. Or at least, right now my world revolves around them, my core family unit. Watching my daughters grow up and evolve, seeing them happy… well, their happiness brings me joy.

What scene in Lost on the Way was your favorite to write?

Maggie and Jason exit his office after an intimate interaction that shocked and blew Jason’s mind. In his office, she unexpectedly fulfilled a fantasy he’d had for years. And at first, he’s blown away, but then when they exit, they’re holding hands and he freezes, overwhelmed by emotions. He’s once again crossed the line and he sees how Maggie is interpreting it. They run into his colleague and Maggie carries on an entire conversation that he’s present for, but he doesn’t absorb. He focuses on his physical symptoms and wonders if he’s getting sick and he spirals down the mental rabbit hole.

Later, we see the whole scene from Maggie’s point of view and it’s so clear the two had completely different perspectives on the discussion in the hall and what happened.

I think that kind of thing happens a lot in life and I loved how this hall scene reveals how different their two perspectives of the same event are.
