Thanks so very much to CE Black for tagging me to take part in her Tag You’re IT blog hop. I get to share a few tid-bits about my current work in progress, and tag three other authors and invite them to answer the same questions for their Monday blogs.
They then tag 3 more authors, and so on and so forth till it’s one great big giant Tag-Along! Sound good? Here goes!
1. What are you working on right now?
I’m polishing Book 3 of my Island Moonlight Collection, Mistress at Midnight, a sensual love story geared to readers of contemporary romance fiction.
2. How does it differ from other works in its genre?
This particular story has a Hawaii and Greece setting – two beautiful islands for lovers Viviana and Micah (Michaelis) to carry on their passionate shenanigans, and to build on their powerful attraction for each other. What makes this story different is that the heroine’s twin sister, who’d recently passed away, lingers on in spirit. Her spirit helps bring Vivi and Micah together. While the paranormal element is mild, it adds a layer of emotion to the story that anyone who has ever lost someone close to them can relate to.
3. Why do you write what you do?
Sexy romance with characters committed to each other – I think because happily ever afters are an enduring fantasy for people, men and women alike. It doesn’t matter what your profession or career is, how successful or where you are in life financially. When love and desire strikes, you’re going down! The dynamics of that magical thing called chemistry and how physical attraction can blossom into love is fascinating to me.
5. How does your writing process work?
I write a blurb or outline of a new story. Mostly, I see the setting and characters in my head, and have a basic idea of how the story is going to flow, key scenes and such, and what the moral of the story is. Example: What you’re looking for might be right in front of you ~
I pound out the first draft in all its ugly glory, polish it up, then let it sit. I go work on something else for a while, then go back to the story later on. I find that letting a manuscript sit for a month is a good way to freshen my perspective on it when I go back to polish it.
Here are the 3 authors I’ve tagged for this hop:
Mahalo for stopping in, and happy blog-hopping!
