Interview with Sophie Barnes, author of More Than A Rogue

What can you tell us about your new release, More Than A Rogue?

It’s a story of personal growth and overcoming insecurities, reaching for one’s dreams and realizing that it’s okay for goals to change. It’s also about learning to trust again and choosing happiness over expectations.

What books are currently on your night stand?

Someone to Hold by Mary Balogh

What advice would you give your teenage self?

Don’t worry so much about what other people think of you and just be yourself.

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

I would love to have more time for reading.

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

My family. They are everything to me. When I worry things aren’t working out as well as I want with my writing, they’re always ready to offer encouragement and support.

What scene in More Than A Rogue was your favorite to write?

I think the beginning where Emily and Griffin argue in the garden right after he catches her with Mr. Bale. It’s the conversation leading up to the kiss that puts the rest of the story in motion. I had a lot of fun with that scene.

Interview with Molly Fitz, author of Dog-Eared Delinquent

What can you tell us about your new release, Dog-Eared Delinquent?

Dog-Eared Delinquent features an amateur sleuth, her eccentric nan, and—of course—their talking cat who thinks he is lord of everything. In this book, a new arrival in town threatens to reveal our hero’s secret while also revealing a secret underbelly of Blueberry Bay no one had suspected even existed. It’s their most twisted, most dangerous adventure yet.

What books are currently on your night stand?

I’m blessed with middle-night insomnia, which means I wake up in the middle of the night to read a couple hours each night. I get through about 2-3 books per week that way, which is why this insomnia is a blessing just as much as a curse! My favorite genres to read are Cozy Mysteries, Contemporary Fiction, and Psychological Thrillers. I tend to rotate between the three. For Cozies, I’ve really been enjoying Mildred Abbott’s Cozy Corgi series and am currently about halfway through.

What advice would you give your teenage self?

It doesn’t get easier, but you get stronger.

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

Let’s be honest here—work, LOL. In addition to writing books both as Molly Fitz and Melissa Storm, I also own six businesses, all related to the publishing industry in some way. This all keeps me very, very busy! An extra hour would be put to fantastic use. Do you have one for me?

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

My five-year-old daughter and thirty-eight year old husband along with our six dogs and long-suffering cat. I love my work, but I love my family even more!

What scene in Dog-Eared Delinquent was your favorite to write?

Any scene with Octo-Cat is always amazingly fun to write. He’s such an over-the-top character, but also so perfectly feline. I love that I’m able to give him a voice and make him a main part of the action. One of the most fun scenes in this book is when Nan puts a bow tie on him as part of dressing up for company, and he just goes spastic trying to get it off. It… Um, may be based on true events.

Interview with Monica Murphy, Author of Save The Date

What can you tell us about your new release, Save The Date?

Save The Date is a fun contemporary romance with a hint of women’s fiction in it. This book isn’t just a romance though – it’s also the story or Caroline, and her friends, and her life choices. She works at a stationery store and helps future brides pick out their save the date cards and wedding invitations. One of her clients happens to be engaged to the man (Alex) who was Caroline’s first kiss when they were kids. All sorts of things happen, including Caroline discovering that Alex’s fiance is cheating on him, Alex asking Caroline to go to Paris with him…this story was a lot of fun to write!

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I was always a big reader when I was a kid. When I was a teen, I discovered my mom’s stash of romance books in the hall closet. I devoured them. Then went to the used book store in my hometown and bought a bunch more. Judith McNaught and Jude Deveraux were my absolute favorite authors in those early years and I often thought to myself after I read them, “I want to write something like that.” Finally, many years later, I started writing, sold my first book (under my other pen name Karen Erickson) in 2006, and the rest is history.

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

This is such a tough question! Okay, let me see what I can come up with:

The Stand by Stephen King
On The Island by Tracey Garvis Graves
Paradise by Judith McNaught
A Knight by Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux
Any book by Jill Shalvis (I love her all of her books, can’t choose one!)

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 ask him about his experience as a writer, because he’s done so much, and had so much success. I’d also ask where does he come up with his ideas. So many of us writers get asked that, and it’s hard to answer, but I’d ask him that question anyway because the ideas for some of his books are so INSANE. His brain fascinates me.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I love immersing myself into the worlds I create. Sometimes I get so into it, I start to feel like the characters I’ve created are actually real. I love the romance writing community. There are so many authors I admire that I can also call my friends! Being able to work from home is pretty great, especially when my kids were younger and they needed me. Being able to write stories about people falling in love is seriously so awesome. I feel pretty lucky to be able to do this.

What is a typical day like for you?

I am seriously all over the place. I don’t always have a steady routine. For instance, right now it’s summer, so my kids are home from school and they’re a complete distraction. Lately I get up in the morning, feed my animals, check my roses (I’ve recently become a bit of a gardener, I seriously feel like my grandma right now LOL), then I start working. Usually working on tasks, answering emails, etc. I start writing in the afternoon, and write best in the evening. I think that’s a hold over from the days when my kids were small and I couldn’t get any writing done until they were in bed.

What scene in Save The Date was your favorite to write?

Oh, I absolutely loved writing the scenes where Alex and Caroline are in Paris. Only because so much of what happened to them, happened to me when I went to Paris back in April. I tried to infuse as many real life details in those scene as possible.

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

I’m a big believer in no regrets. I encourage everyone to ask for what they want – the worst that’ll happen is you’ll hear no. But a lot of the time, the answer will be yes. You won’t know if you don’t try…

Interview with Michelle Hercules, Author of Lost Horizon

What can you tell us about your new release, Lost Horizon?

Lost Horizon is a space fantasy romance retelling of the Wizard of Oz set in a futuristic world. It’s Star Wars meets the Wizard of Oz. Dorothy is a space pilot cadet who ends up on a planet called Oz. Expect to see the novel’s beloved characters reimagined in unpredictable ways in this coming of age, epic adventure with lots of twists and turns, magic, and of course romance. Lost Horizon is a slow burn reverse harem romance.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I’ve always been an avid reader, but never in a million years, I thought I could write a book. My writing career began as a fun project, but once I started writing, I couldn’t stop.

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

Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo

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

J. K. Rowling. I’d ask if she knew from the beginning all the twists and turns of the series.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

The ability to create new worlds and characters readers can fall in love (or hate). It’s all about the experience.

What is a typical day like for you?

Take my daughter to school, sometimes hit the gym, and then write the rest of the day.

What scene in Lost Horizon was your favorite to write?

My favorite scene to write was when Dorothy’s space ship crashed in Oz.

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

Never get too comfortable. Keep moving.
