I’M FAMOUS…well sort of…

Hi everyone. Like it says above, I’m famous! Well, not really. But I feel kind of important today. Why? I am in the newspaper.

                        TA-DA!!

No, it’s not the New York Times but still, this paper circulates around all of NW Arkansas which for me, is big.

I hope it might be the beginning for more exposure for my first full length novel, Angel in the Shadows , and also for my short story, Second Chances, A Christmas Story, which is one of 8 Chritmas themed stories in the Soul Mate publication, Sizzle in the Snow.

I am currently working on the second book in the Angel series, tentatively titled, Stone Cold Angel.

Also, when Angel in the Shadows becomes available in print version, (around May or June of this year), I plan to begin do book signings. I am in the process of contacting a few places around NW Arkansas that would allow me to set up a book signing table.

But in the meantime, if you’re interested in a good book, please check out Angel in the Shadows or Sizzle in the Snow. Both are currently available on Amazon. And if you do purchase one of these incredible titles, please leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads. Reviews help us authors more than you can possibly know.

Saturday’s Special…Erin!!

Good morning all! Today I have Erin Bevan and her book, Wedding Day.

image

Hi Erin! I’m so glad to have you here today. So your book is called Wedding Day. Can you tell us a little about it?

Sure, here’s the blurb.

Famous Bull Rider Dallas Day met Cassie Bailey briefly in high school, but her plain looks and quiet personality left no lasting impression on him. Cassie, however, couldn’t say the same about Dallas.

Their paths cross again ten years later when Dallas is home recovering from an injury, and Cassie is the only veterinarian who volunteers her services at the home-town rodeo. She’s jump-starting her new practice, and every eligible man within a ten-mile radius is trying to land a date with the attractive vet.

Dallas’ older brother bets him that, even with all his charm and fame, Dallas can’t land a date with the reserved lady vet. Not one to turn down a challenge, Dallas makes it his mission to win a date with Cassie. After seeing her, he realizes they’ve met before, but he doesn’t remember her being so pretty. His persistence pays off, but when Cassie finds out about the bet, their new love is put to the test.

That sounds pretty intriquing. And like a fun read. How about a small taste?

Alright, here’s a sample. 🙂

“Is there anything I can help you with?” A deep voice asked from behind her.
“No, I think we have it.” She hopped down from the pen. Glacier blue eyes locked with hers. She would know his eyes anywhere. Her heart quickened just as it did the first time she’d ever laid her gaze upon him, and a tingling sensation shot through her.
Dallas looked older than she remembered, broader, gruffer, but still sexy.
Tucker, you have Tucker.
Where was he, anyway? In her haste to get ready, she’d forgotten to call him.
“Dallas? Yeah, we can use a hand.” Chevy still fumbled with the lock. “Can you come over here and help me with Knuckle Head? Dr. Bailey wants him to walk around so she can get a closer look.”
“I really don’t think that’s necessary–”
“I would love to help. That’s why I’m here.” Dallas jogged to the front of the bull and grabbed the lead rope with his left hand. A plastered cast circled his right wrist and rose halfway up his forearm.
She turned to Spencer and furrowed her brow.
Spencer stared back at her and displayed her pageant winning 2005 Miss Frisbee smile, her thumb up in the air. Some friend she was.
Dallas and Chevy led the bull out of the pen while she observed the bull’s gait.
“Let’s get him over by a water hose. I want to get a closer look at his foot.” She pointed toward a washing station and followed behind the men as they led the bull, sure to steer clear of Knuckle Head’s hind legs in the event he wanted to kick her.
From her position, she had a clear view of Dallas’s backside. Everything appeared to be as tight as she remembered, which did nothing to settle those distracting tingling sensations.
Focus.

Oh my…I think I’m falling in love with this book already. Do you have a particular book you remember? Like the first one you ever read?

Well, this is a tricky one because I can give you all the ones I had to read in school, but to me, those don’t count. I had no desire to read those books, so the first book I picked up because I wanted to read was something by Nicholas Sparks. I think The Rescue. From then on, I was hooked. 

I love Nicholas Sparks. Curling up with one of his books and a cup of hot cocoa or coffee…perfect. Hey, do you drink coffee? How do you take it?

At home, I put honey and almond milk in it. From Starbucks, I get an Iced Americano (depending on the day depends on the size, usually Grande, sometimes Venti) with two percent milk and two pumps of classic. 

Yum. Other than coffee, do you ever have a drink to relax or unwind? Pick your poison. What is your favorite alcoholic drink? 

43 with coke! 

I can’t say I’ve ever tried that one but it sounds good. Hey, I almost forgot, it’s Saturday. What are you. going to be doing tonight?

After putting my kids to bed, I usually go to bed, too. Boring, I know! But, despite the day, I’m pretty tired chasing everyone around so I sleep!

I hear you there. I’m actually at work right now. Just for fun, what is one job you would never want to do?

Trash Pickup. Yuck!

I don’t blame you there. But I have had some dirtier jobs than that believe it or not…:roll:

Can you give us a little background on yourself?

I was born and raised in Southwest Arkansas. I spent my teenage years working for my aunt at the local gas station flipping burgers and making milkshakes, dreaming of the day when something better would come my way, and it did in the form of a five foot six, one hundred and fifty pound engineer.

Nice….:mrgreen:

Fast forward ten years later, I found myself stuck inside an apartment in South Korea while my daughter went to preschool and my husband went to work. Alone and unable to speak the local language I turned to books for a friend. After reading a few hundred in such a short time, I decided to try my hand at writing one.

That’s always fun and scary rolled into one. ☺

Yeah. Well that first one sucked, but by the fifth and sixth book, I started to get the hang of this writing thing. Getting the first contract in the mail was a dream come true. Now, with three babies at home, I squeeze in stories one word at a time, one sentence at a time, one day at a time.

It’s hard to do when you have a family but you definitely prove it can be done. What about now? What’s your home life like?

I’ma full time mom, a full time wife, with a little writer sprinkled in whenever I can get the chance. And the laundry? Well, it’s best not to open the washroom door!

LOL! Erin, I want to thank you again for stopping by today. Before you go, where can we reach you? And buy your books?

Here to tantalize us…Angela

Hello all. Today I have Angela Archer and her new book, As the Liquor Flows.

image

Angela, the cover of your book looks incredible. What can you tell us about it?

Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929, the day the stock market crashed, and the day Evelyn Ford will never forget. 

With the untimely death of her parents and the loss of their only income, Evelyn, and her brother, Frank flee to a make-shift hovel built in Central Park. 

After Frank mysteriously goes missing, bare cupboards force Evelyn to seek employment anywhere she can find work, even if that means working at a burlesque theater. 

Catching the attention of Don Vincent Giovanni, a Kingpin in the New York mafia, Evelyn discovers that Frank is serving time in prison for running hooch and he owes Vincent a lot of money. In order to pay off her brother’s debt, Evelyn is thrown into the world of mobsters and bootlegging. 

Between running hooch all over the city of New York and trying to save her brother, Evelyn finds herself drawn to Max Catalano, Vincent’s Consigliere. Even with secrets of his own, he’s the only one she can trust when she entangles herself herself in the middle of the New York mafia crime wars.

Wow! That sounds amazing! A definite must read!

Thanks! I really enjoyed writing it.

What can you tell us about you?

I live on a ranch with my husband, two daughters, and many farm animals.

A ranch! How cool. Have you always been around that kind of lifestyle?

Well, I was born and raised in Nevada, and grew up riding and showing horses from hunter jumper, English equitation, western pleasure, trail, and halter.
While I don’t show anymore, I still love to trail ride my paint horse, Honky. In December of 2007, I and her husband moved to Oklahoma.

How did you decide to become a writer?

From a young age, I always wanted to write a novel. However, I never believed I could write anything well enough for a publisher to even consider me. Every time the desire flickered, I shoved the thought from my mind until one morning, in 2009, I awoke with the determination to follow my dream.

It’s a good thing you did. Now you can do what you’ve always dreamed of.

And now for a little question and answer session:

Pizza or Cheeseburgers?
Pizza

What is your favorite candy? The one you couldn’t live without? Skittles. Especially the Wild Berry flavors in the purple bag.

Coffee drinker? How do you take it?
I’m ridiculously addicted to coffee and I’m a “hot blonde with sand” girl (lots of cream and sugar).

Pick your poison. What is your favorite alcoholic drink?
Anything with Tequila.

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Grilled shrimp

Where can people find you and your book?
