A-Billionaire-After-Dark-Quote-Graphic-#2

 

MBA: What makes you most happy while writing?

Katie Lane: The characters.  I love quirky heroines, imperfect heroes, zany neighbors, and crazy townsfolk.  It’s such fun to mix them all together and see what happens.  If people could listen in when I’m writing, they would think I was crazy.  I laugh out loud at things my characters say.  And talk to them like they are sitting right next to me.  “Oh, noooo!  You are not going to do that.  That’s just crazy.  Okay, you’re going to do that.  Fine, do it!  But don’t say I didn’t warn you.”

 

 

MBA: What is the best advice you’ve ever gotten or given about writing?

Katie Lane: When I was first writing, I read this book (Sorry, but the title escapes me at the moment.) that pretty much told you what to do if you DID NOT want to get published.  The first thing on the list was “Don’t Finish your Book.”  It just made so much sense to me.  If you don’t finish a book, there’s no way it can be published.  So I finish books.  They might not ever get published, but they have a chance.

 

MBA: While writing this book did you have a moment of OMG that’s perfect?

Katie Lane: I’m really hard on myself so I rarely say the word “perfect.”  But there were a few times while writing this that I smiled with satisfaction.  The scene where Nash and Eden are standing in the street and find out all these truths about each other and then they almost have sex and are caught by her . . . well, shoot, I can’t finish without spoiling the scene.  Anyway, that scene turned out sexy, funny, and heartwarming—my favorite combination for a scene.

 

MBA: Were you surprised by anything in this book?

Katie Lane: I’m always surprised by a book.  I can write a detailed outline, but I never follow it.  The characters go where the characters want to go.  And Nash and Eden were these two loose canons who got very stubborn and nasty when I tried to force them into certain situations that they didn’t like.  So this book was hard to write in that respect, but fun to write as far as surprises go.

 

MBA: What 5 things would you take with you if you had to live on Mars for a year?

Katie Lane: Matt Damon because he pretty much knows how to survive there and because . . . well, he’s hot.  A laptop with a solar panel battery or whatever type of battery works on Mars.  My softie pillow because I never go any place without it.  Lots and Lots of Skinny Pop Popcorn.  And my dog Roo.  Okay, if I’m taking Roo, I need to skip the Skinny Pop and take my husband, but we’ll still need Matt because my husband thinks he knows how to live off the land, but he really doesn’t.

 

MBA: What do you hope readers will gain from reading your story? 

Katie Lane: I hope my readers gain the same things I want to gain when I read a romance novel:  Hours of entertainment and a sigh of contentment when the hero and heroine live happily-ever-after.

 

Thank you so much for hosting me today, Book Addictions & More!  It’s always a pleasure. :o)

About A BILLIONAIRE AFTER DARK

With endless wealth comes irresistible temptation . . .

It’s an undisputed fact that Nash Beaumont is the hottest of the Beaumont brothers. His slow, sensual smile charms every French Kiss employee-and tempts every woman to buy the company’s lingerie. But beneath Nash’s raw charisma is a dark, kinky side that he struggles to control . . . a side that may be exposed by one lovely-and unexpectedly adventurous woman.

Reporter Eden Huckabee needs a story. And when she discovers Nash’s dirty little secret, she thinks she’s found it. But Eden doesn’t count on Nash turning the tables on her-or that she will fall so deeply for this unbelievably sexy, one-in-a-billion Beaumont.

SADDLE UP FOR FOREVER’S WESTERN SUSPENSE ROMANCE VISIT AND GIVEAWAY!!!

 FOREVER/GRAND CENTRAL PUBLISHING  AND MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PRESENTS…..

R.C.RYAN AND KATIE LANE!!!

WELCOME R.C.RYAN!!

MBA&M: Tell our readers a few tidbits about R.C. Ryan?

 

R.C.: It would be fun to say that I live in a seaside villa in the Mediterranean with my much-younger lover.  But it would be a lie.

 

R. C. Ryan married her childhood sweetheart (we met in first grade).  We’re the parents of five, and we live beside a pond in Michigan amid rolling hills that were once an apple orchard, where coyotes and deer and foxes roam.  (but no buffalo)

MBA&M: What do you think the appeal of Western Romance is to readers?

 

R.C.: It’s that tough Alpha male.  We all yearn for the rugged individual who struggles against the land, the forces of nature, and the wild yearning of his heart, before he meets his one true love.

 

MBA&M: What kind of research went into writing “Quinn”?

 

R.C.: Research on Wyoming, on wolves in Wyoming, on modern ranching, calving season in springtime.  Thank heaven for the Internet.  Instead of spending days at the library, I’m able to call it all up on my computer screen in minutes.

MBA&M:  How many books will be in this series?

 

R.C.: QUINN is Book 1 of a 3-Book series.  JOSH is book 2 due in October and JAKE in March, 2013.

MBA&M:  If you could be a character in “Quinn” which character would you be?Why?

 

R.C.: All of them.  While I’m writing my books, I become every character.  I have to love the good guys and get inside the mind of the bad guys. 

 

But if I had to choose one, I guess I’d have to be Quinn.  I love the romance of tracking my own wolf pack, sleeping under the stars, experiencing with them the life-cycle of birth, death, the hunt.  I’m sure it’s much more romantic to think about it than it would be to live it, but it just touches a chord in me.

One look at beautiful, strong-willed Cheyenne O’Brien tells him she’s also no stranger to tragedy. A series of increasingly dangerous “accidents” are plaguing her and her land, and Quinn can’t stand idly by while a woman is in danger. Fiercely independent, Cheyenne isn’t one to lean on others, yet she can’t deny her attraction to the rugged rancher offering help. … more

WELCOME KATIE LANE!!

MBA&M:  Please give our readers a few tidbits about Katie Lane? 

 KATIE: I am addicted to cheeseburgers.  I sleep with ear plugs because Hubba snores like a saw mill.  You can catch me singing at the top of my lungs when sitting at a stoplight.

MBA&M: What if anything made you decide to write Western Romance? 

KATIE: I’ve always thought cowboys were sexy.  I think it’s the hat.  Or maybe the wranglers.  Or maybe the boots.   Or maybe the cocky swagger.  Or maybe . . .

MBA&M: What where the challenges in writing CATCH ME A COWBOY? 

KATIE: Making sure that Billy “Bubba” Wilkes wasn’t too much of a good ol’ boy.  He can come up with some pretty obnoxious pick up lines.  “Sure you don’t want a little Bubba lovin’?  How about a tour of Wilkesville?”

MBA&M: Who is your favorite character in CATCH ME A COWBOY?Why? 

 KATIE:I have to choose?  I love both my heroine and hero.  Shirlene is this charismatic, fun woman I would love to have as a friend.  Billy has this country charm that’s addictive.   

MBA&M: When writing how do you determine who will be your hero/heroine/villian. Do they make themselves known from the beginning or as you write? 

 KATIE: I always have an idea of who my heroine and hero will be, but they become more vivid as I write.  Sometimes I’m surprised at how their personalities develop.
