INTERVIEW AND GIVEAWAY WITH DEBUT AUTHOR: ELISABETH BARRETT…

RANDOM HOUSE AND MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PROUDLY PRESENTS DEBUT AUTHOR….

ELISABETH BARRETT!!

 Good morning, Elisabeth and welcome to My Book Addiction and More!

Elisabeth: Thanks so much. I’m very glad to be here!

MBA&M: Please tell our readers a few tidbits about yourself?

Elisabeth: I’m a married mom of three, and am an avid baker, reader and orchid grower. I love all kinds of music, especially jazz, and enjoy singing in classical choruses. I spend a lot of time at cafés and bookstores, but the majority of my free time is spent with my family, which is just the way I like it.  

MBA&M: Tell us a little about Deep Autumn Heat?

Elisabeth: The book is set in the town of Star Harbor, on Cape Cod, and is the story of two stubborn chefs who find that despite their very different personalities, they can’t resist each other. Lexie Meyers wants to open a catering business as an extension of her already-successful restaurant, but Sebastian Grayson, a famous New York City chef and former local bad boy, is back in town and has Lexie in his sights. When he steps foot into the Lexie Meyers Kitchen and takes one bite of Lexie’s delectable coconut cake, he immediately gets hooked—on her. But Lexie isn’t about to fall for Seb’s charms (at least not that easily), and sparks fly in more than just the kitchen when the two of them clash.

MBA&M: If Deep Autumn Heat became a movie, who would you cast as Sebastian and Lexie? Why?

Elisabeth: Wow! I had actually not thought about this question before. I don’t use visuals when I write, so I had no specific visual of the “perfect” person for either character. Someone super intense for Sebastian, with tons of charm. I feel like Christian Bale has the requisite hubris to pull it off. And for Lexie, maybe someone warm, but with a backbone of steel. Ginnifer Goodwin? Or Mandy Moore? Perhaps readers in the comment section can help me with the casting?

MBA&M:  What do you feel was the biggest challenge in writing Deep Autumn Heat?

Elisabeth: Showcasing Sebastian’s arrogance and charm. I wanted him to be a character whom readers might not root for (or Lexie might not fall for) at first, but for him to be a man readers (and Lexie!) would definitely grow to love over time.

MBA&M: What is the one thing your heroine would never be caught dead doing/saying?

Elisabeth: Lexie works obscenely hard, and is constantly on the go. You would never find her just lazing around.

MBA&M: Tell us one quirky thing about your hero?

Elisabeth: Sebastian is a professional chef and is used to preparing (and eating) the finest food. But when he’s home at night, or when he goes out, he likes to eat simply. He also likes NY style pizza, and eats it whenever he can.

MBA&M: And about your heroine?

Elisabeth: Lexie is also a professional chef, so I’ll give you something food related: she doesn’t drink coffee.

MBA&M: Want to tell us something quirky and food-related about yourself?

Elisabeth: I’ll tell you a few things. I am obsessed with really dark chocolate and eat some every day. I like cooking, but I adore baking. If it didn’t make my teeth hurt so much, I’d eat whole lemons.   

MBA&M: What you think readers will like best about this book:

Elisabeth: I hope that readers will connect with Seb and Lexie, as well as with the New England setting. I loved writing about Star Harbor, and wanted to show the town in all its autumnal beauty. There are a few secondary characters I absolutely adore, and I hope that readers will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing them.

MBA&M: Where can readers pick up a copy of Deep Autumn Heat?

Elisabeth: It comes out on July 9th, but you can pre-order a copy anywhere e-books are sold. Here are the links: Kindle | Nook | ITunes | Other Formats

MBA&M: Now, Elisabeth, please tell our readers what is in your future as a writer?

Elisabeth: More Grayson brothers adventures! The next book in the Star Harbor series, Blaze of Winter, comes out in September and features Theo (Seb’s twin). After that, there are two more Star Harbor books on the horizon that feature the other two Grayson brothers and that are most likely to be released in 2013. If you’re interested in finding out more about me and about the Star Harbor books, please visit my website at www.elisabethbarrett.com. I’m also on Facebook and Twitter.

MBA&M: Thank you for spending your day with us and our readers at My Book Addiction and More!

Elisabeth: Thank you for having me! It’s been wonderful to be here!

VISIT AND GIVEAWAY WITH WILLIAM WOODALL,”THE LAST WEREWOLF HUNTER”…

MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PRESENTS….

AUTHOR WILLIAM WOODALL!!

WELCOME WILLIAM!!

NOW SIT BACK AND ENJOY OUR GUEST,WILLIAM WOODALL….

Good morning, William and welcome to My Book Addiction and More!!

MBA&M: Please give our readers some insight into William Woodall?

WILLIAM: Well, let’s see.  I’m one of those invincible optimists that always sees the silver lining in every bad situation.  My wife laughs at me for it and calls me Mr. Sunshine all the time.  But it’s not that I don’t see the dark side of things or that I don’t know what that feels like- believe me, I do.  I just choose not to focus on it.

MBA&M: What called you to become an author?

WILLIAM: I think I’ve always wanted to become an author, ever since I was old enough to know I wanted anything at all.  There’s something special about creating things, telling stories that no one ever heard before, which is just awesome.

MBA&M:  What is the allure of werewolves?

WILLIAM: Werewolves are an old, old tale, and they’ve been popular ever since people started telling stories. I think people like them for the same reason they like the idea of flying like a bird.  It’s the lure of having powers beyond what human beings can normally do, and if we can’t have those things in reality then it’s nice to enjoy it as a fantasy story sometimes.

MBA&M: Give our readers a little background on “THE LAST WEREWOLF HUNTER”?

WILLIAM: When I started writing this book, I wanted to do a werewolf story which was different than anything else I’d ever read.  Yeah, I know that’s a tall order, but that was my goal.  But I also wanted to have fun with it, and I was determined not to let it get too serious.  So I came up with the idea of Zach growing up in a family of werewolves and deciding to reject that kind of life for himself, and then finding himself in a position where he had to be the one to break the werewolf Curse for the whole world.  Not something he ever expected, and it gave him a lot of opportunities to learn and grow and do some fantastic things.

MBA&M: What do you thing the allure of “THE LAST WEREWOLF HUNTER” will be to readers?

WILLIAM: Werewolf stories are pretty common nowadays, and it’s hard to find something that’s truly fresh and different to say about them.  I think The Last Werewolf Hunter is unlike anything else on the market right now, and with as many werewolf stories as there are, that’s really saying something.  If it were only me, I’d be nervous about claiming such a thing, but after so many readers have said the same thing, I have to agree with them.  The Last Werewolf Hunter is a werewolf story unlike anything else you’ve ever read.

 

 

MBA&M: Where did the idea of “THE LAST WEREWOLF HUNTER” come from?

WILLIAM: I get asked this question a lot, and I’m not sure I know the answer.  I’ve always liked werewolf books, especially if they had some humor and maybe a little bit of deeper meaning to think about.  So maybe it’s only logical that I’d end up writing something like that one day.  It started out as a short story I wrote when I was in high school, and it grew up from there. 

 

 

MBA&M: What is in your “To read” pile?

WILLIAM: Insurgent, by Veronica Roth.  I just finished Divergent, and I can’t wait to read the sequel.  I’m also looking forward to finishing Robert Liparulo’s House of Dark Shadows series.  I’m a voracious reader, whenever I have time to do it, and there are so many great books out there.

 

 

MBA&M: Who do you feel your writing most resembled?

WILLIAM: I think I’ve been influenced by a lot of writers, in various ways.  I got my quirky humor from Robert Heinlein, my high symbolism from C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, and then there’s quite a bit which is just purely me.

 

 

MBA&M: What is the one thing you would like to accomplish with your

writing?Why?

WILLIAM: I’d like for my readers to be inspired by the stories I write.  Kids hear so many stale, boring lectures about how they ought to behave and what’s right and wrong, and then on the other hand they hear so many other stories that glorify bad behavior, too.   There are not many stories out there which are fun, exciting, real, and can make goodness seem like something cool and admirable.  It’s a hard tightrope to walk.  But I hope, if I’ve done my job, that that’s what my stories will be. 

 

 

MBA&M: If you could step into a book which one would it be and why?

WILLIAM: I think my favorite fantasy world is a tossup between Narnia and Middle Earth.  I love the richness of both places, and I think what I love best of all is that there are things really worth doing, choices that really make a difference, and people I’d really like to get to know.  The depth of those two worlds is something truly awesome.

 

 

MBA&M: Which character in “THE LAST WEREWOLF HUNTER” do you most identify with?Why?

WILLIAM: That would have to be Zach, no question about it.  He’s the main character, of course, and since the whole story is told through his eyes, he almost IS the story.   I think Zach is easy for anybody to identify with, though.  He’s so real-seeming that you soon feel like he’s been one of your best friends for years.  He goes through so much pain and heartache in the book, but he never loses his sense of humor or his ability to see things in a way you’d never think of.  He’s the kind of character you remember for a long time.

 

 

MBA&M: What is next for you as an author?

WILLIAM: I’m not quite sure yet, at this point.  I just finished writing a new novel called “Unclouded Day”, and I’m thinking about writing a new book about Zach at some point, since I’ve gotten so many requests for that.  Nobody seems to want to let him go.  It won’t be about werewolves this time, but I haven’t decided what he might have to tackle next.  lol

 

 

MBA&M: Please tell our readers where to find you and where “THE LAST WEREWOLF HUNTER” is available?

WILLIAM: The Last Werewolf Hunter can be found just about anywhere books are sold.  The best place to find me or more information about the things I write would be on my website at www.williamwoodall.org

 

 

William,do you have anything else you would like to add?

WILLIAM: If anybody would like to read part of the book for free (the first four or five chapters or so) you can do that by visiting my website and clicking on the links.

Thank you for visiting with us and our readers today!!

GUEST POST AND GIVEAWAY WITH SARA RAMSEY…

MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE IS PROUD TO PRESENT….

SARA RAMSEY

MEET SARA RAMSEY….

Sara Ramsey writes fun, feisty Regency historical romances. She won the prestigious 2009 Romance Writers of America Golden Heart award with her first book, Scotsmen Prefer Blondes (formerly titled An Inconvenient Marriage). The prequel, Heiress Without A Cause (formerly titled One Night to Scandal), was a 2011 Golden Heart finalist.

 

Sara grew up in a small town in Iowa, and her obsession with fashion, shoes, and all things British is clearly a rebellion against her hopelessly uncool youth. She graduated from Stanford University in 2003 with a degree in Symbolic Systems (also known as cognitive science) and a minor in history. Sara subsequently worked at Google for seven years in a variety of sales, management, and communications roles. She left Google in 2010 to pursue her writing career full time. Read all about her Regency obsessions and upcoming works at www.SaraRamsey.com. Or, follow her slightly ridiculous Twitter feed, @Sara_Ramsey.

WELCOME SARA!!

 

I’ve been asked a lot about how I came up with the idea for my Muses of Mayfair series, and I can honestly say that there was never a single spark of inspiration. The idea for a group of women who are pursuing secret artistic passions came to me very slowly. The first draft of the book that eventually became SCOTSMEN PREFER BLONDES always featured Lady Amelia Staunton, a secret Gothic romance novelist, and Malcolm MacCabe, Earl of Carnach, a Scottish laird in need of a bride.

But the women who became the Muses of Mayfair weren’t actually in the first draft. Madeleine, the actress who stars in HEIRESS WITHOUT A CAUSE, was a very different character. Ellie, the painter from my upcoming THE MARQUESS WHO LOVED ME, was off screen for the entire book.  Prudence, the secret historian who will be featured in my fourth book, didn’t exist at all. It was only as I started writing the first draft of Madeleine’s story that I realized I cared as much for the friendships between these four women as I did for the romances between each hero and heroine.

Don’t get me wrong – the romance between Malcolm and Amelia is absolutely the focus of SCOTSMEN PREFER BLONDES. But relationships between friends intrigue me, too – not the sweet, uncomplicated ‘friendship’ between a heroine and a secondary character whose only role is to give the heroine someone to talk to about the hero, but the messy, sometimes contentious friendships that we’ve all lived through in some way or another.

What I love about all of the Muses is that they’re willing to risk everything to fulfill their artistic passions. But the risk of pursuing your own passion is that you might hurt other people – and I’m really interested in seeing whether people stay true to themselves or sacrifice their dreams for someone else. And I’m also interested in whether friends support each other regardless of what happens, or try to convince each other to take a different path, or betray each other in the belief that they’re actually helping.

There’s never a “right” way to interact with your friends, and different characters make different choices in these books. But I think all of them realize just how vital relationships (both their relationships with their heroes and with the other Muses) are to feeling fulfilled. And how their friendships evolve when they all start pairing off with their respective heroes fascinates me.

What do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts – and one lucky commenter will win a copy of SCOTSMEN PREFER BLONDES!

SARA RAMSEY

Paperback:340 pages

Publisher: Spencerhill Associates Ltd. (February 23, 2012)

Language:English

HEIRESS WITHOUT A CAUSE – Muses of Mayfair #1 – available now!

One title to change his life…

A disgraced son with a dark reputation, William “Ferguson” Avenel is content to live in exile – until his father dies in the scandal of the Season. With rumors of insanity swirling around them, his sisters desperately need a chaperone. Ferguson thinks he’s found the most proper woman in England – and he won’t ruin her, even if he desperately wants the passionate woman trapped beneath a spinster’s cap.

One chance to break the rules…

Lady Madeleine Vaillant can’t face her blighted future without making one glorious memory for herself. In disguise, on a London stage, she finds all the adoration she never felt from the ton. But when she’s nearly recognized, she will do anything to hide her identity – even setting up her actress persona as Ferguson’s mistress. She’ll take the pleasure he offers, but Madeleine won’t lose her heart in the bargain.

One season to fall in love…

Every stolen kiss could lead to discovery, and Ferguson’s old enemies are determined to ruin them both. But as their dangerous passion ignites their hearts and threatens their futures, how can an heiress who dreams of freedom deny the duke who demands her love?

SCOTSMEN PREFER BLONDES

SARA RAMSEY

Print Length:274 pages

Publisher:Spencerhill Associates, Ltd (April 4, 2012)

Language:English

 

SCOTSMEN PREFER BLONDES – Muses of Mayfair #2 – coming early April 2012

She never wanted marriage…

When a friend is forced to consider a marriage of convenience, Lady Amelia Staunton is determined to rescue her. But her plans trap her in an illicit seduction, and Amelia must marry him herself. Malcolm’s all-consuming kisses and devilish humor might make up for her lost freedom, but she believes he will force her to abandon the Gothic romances she yearns to write. Since she can’t escape him, she must distract him from her secret…

He isn’t looking for love…

A powerful autocrat with a well-hidden rebellious streak, Malcolm MacCabe doesn’t need another beautiful mistress – he needs an obedient wife. Obedience is not one of Amelia’s virtues. But he’s too enthralled by her wit and passion to let her go – even if it means risking the political reputation he is building to save his clan.

Their hearts can’t survive the scandal…

Despite their intentions, every wicked embrace binds them together. But as their conflicting desires combust into insatiable hunger and unavoidable ruin, they must decide whether to pursue their personal destinies alone – or fight for the love that could destroy them both.

Q&A with author Devan Sipher and giveawa..

Today we at MBA are proud to welcome author Devan Sipher! Please sit back and enjoy our chat.

MBA&M: Devan, please tell our readers a few tidbits about yourself.

 

Devan: I was born in Los Angeles, grew up in the Midwest and have lived in New York for two decades.  The result is I talk fast, hold doors open for women, and like wearing shorts and flip-flops whenever possible.

 

MBA&M: Where did the idea for THE WEDDING BEAT come from?

 

Devan: For five years, I was a writer of the Vows wedding column at The New York Times.  As a 40-something, single guy writing about other people’s weddings, it occurred to me that my life would seem far more amusing to someone who wasn’t living it.

 

MBA&M: Did you do any research before writing THE WEDDING BEAT?

 

Devan:My research was mostly just doing my work at the Times. I also read a lot of romance and romantic comedy books, from Nicholas Sparks to Helen Fielding.  I wanted to fully immerse myself in the genre.

 

MBA&M: Which of the characters in THE WEDDING BEAT do you most identify with and why?

 

Devan: The main character in The Wedding Beat is also a single guy writing a wedding column for a major newspaper.  So we have a bit in common.  For the record, I’m taller, but he gets the girl in the end, which is something I’m still working on.

 

MBA&M: What is on the horizon for you and your writing career?

 

Devan: I have a two-book deal.  So I’m writing the second book, which I’m not supposed to say a lot about, but I can say it’s about two people who make a lot of wrong turns on their way to finding each other.  The tagline is “Sometimes love at first sight can take a lifetime.”

 

MBA&M: Who is the hero/heroine in your life? Why?

 

Devan: My grandmother is 96 years old and still runs three miles every day.  She is living proof of the power of positive thinking – and I only hope I’ve inherited some of her genes.

 

MBA&M: What are some of your favorite things to do when relaxing?

 

Devan: I love taking long walks along the water.  I live in Manhattan, and I like to remind myself as often as possible that I live on an island.  I’ve even been known to take a midnight run along the Hudson River on a balmy night. 

 

MBA&M: Tell us where to find you and where to find THE WEDDING BEAT?

 

Devan: My Web site is www.devansipher.com, and there are links to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks and Indiebound.  You can also follow me on Twitter @DevanSipher or get the latest news at www.facebook.com/DevanSipher

 

Devan, do you have anything to add?

 

Interviewing thousands of brides and grooms has given me the opportunity to learn many things.  The most important is that happiness is a choice.  The Wedding Beat is my lighthearted way of sharing that message. 

 

Thank you for visiting with us and our readers today!!!

Hello Everyone. Please bare with us if posts are late or a bit different. My mom, AprilR, who usually handles the blog posts and such had surgery last Thursday.

Please bare with us and keep sending her good thoughts and prayers.
