SPOTLIGHT Questions and Answers with the Author

Congratulations on your book: Fierce-Cade and the Fierce Five Series. Rumor has it that you have new collection on the horizon called Hot Hunks-Steamy Romance Collection. Can you tell us the timeline for its first release and give us a little tease?

I’m working with 7 other fabulous authors for the first in our Hot Hunks-Steamy Romance Collection. It’s called “After Hurricane Nina” and each of our books has a hero with a resolution they need to make. Here’s a peek at my book:

On November 30, 2016, Hurricane Nina hit Bali, Indonesia. In the aftermath of death and destruction, eight strong sexy men will realize it’s time for a change in their lives. A resolution of sorts. A contractor, personal trainer, a millionaire, a stuntman, a rock star, a thrill-seeker, an army veteran, and a trust fund prodigal will all find a way to conquer their loss and learn to love. This is Reed’s story.

Resolution: To be the man he used to be. To find a way to be happy once again.

Reed Chapman thought he had the perfect life. A beautiful fiancée and a successful business. When tragedy struck, his perfect world imploded like the Titanic hitting the iceberg, making him realize his life had been anything but wonderful. Though his business is still thriving, his personal life and outlook on women are still sinking deep to the ocean floor with no life vests in sight.

Taylor Winston never had much in life so when prince charming entered her life, she figured she had it made. She thought wrong. Now she’s a single mother relocating so that she doesn’t lose custody of her daughter. The last thing she has time for in her life is a man. Then why is her new sexy boss popping into her dreams so frequently and unexpectedly, making her wonder why she’d even consider accepting the proposition he so neatly laid out for her?

Do you do any book signings, interviews, speaking and personal appearances? If so, when and where is the next place where your readers can see you? Where can they keep up with your personal contacts online?

No signings or interviews. Readers can keep up with me on my Blog.

You have great covers. They carry a theme and your brand with them. How does your book cover creation process work? Do you hand over the basic theme or do you have more of a hands-on approach? Do you get your readers involved in its development?

Thanks on the covers! To me that is the first thing that draws a reader in. I’m very hands on with my covers. I create a theme for the covers before I even start writing the series and I try to make sure that the people on the covers are similar to how I’m describing them in the story.

What is your primary genre? What has been your best marketing approach to this group?

My primary genre is contemporary romance. I’ve written two romantic suspense and one light paranormal and hope to try my hand at another paranormal soon. My best marketing approach is to just keep the books coming and trying to interact with my readers through my newsletter, my blog, and FB.

Between your book writing, blogging, marketing, family and all the other things that can get in your way, how do you manage your time? Do you have a set schedule or do you sort of play it by ear?

Time management is always an issue in life in general, but I’m a list girl. I make lists of things I need to do each day, week, month. I cross them off before I move to the next. I don’t have a set time to write. I try to work on my writing 1-3 hours a day. Either editing or writing. Some days I spend more time, some not at all.

What has been your experience in giving your books away free? Have you been involved in any other type of giveaways and how did that work out? What was your main goal in doing this? Did you run into any obstacles?

I try to mark a book free for 5 days several times a year. My goal is to get new readers to try one of my books and hopefully get hitched to it and buy the other books in the series.

Do you maintain a reader list? What are the methods you use to find your readers and create the list and the relationship? Do you use social media, forums, newsletters and/or support groups to build your list?

I’ve got a newsletter list and I try to send out 2 newsletters a month promoting my books, what is coming up, what projects I’m working on, and promoting books from other authors. Building my newsletter list has been hard and it’s one of those things I need to focus a bit more time on.

You have a great blog. You do a great job keeping readers informed and marketing your books. What is your primary goal? And where in the world do you find the time to create great novels, take care of the social media and maintain your blog?

Thanks! My goal is to keep my readers coming back for more. To give them teasers of the books to come. I’m not quite sure how I find time to do it all. I guess I just love writing so much, that I make the time!

What is the objective for your newsletter? Do you try to build a list of readers? Do you see a carryover to the sales of your novels?

My objective of my newsletter is to keep my readers informed on what books are coming out, when there is a sale, or what new projects might be in the works. I do see a small carryover in sales. Building my newsletter list will help this, I’m sure. Or I should say, I hope

I like the idea of Author bundles. You are a part of a novel collection called Love, Christmas 2 with twenty-five other authors. What a great group of outstanding people. (Many have been interviewed on this blog). What was your main objective in bundling your works with other authors? What blogging, newsletter and social media promotions have you done to promote the collection?

My main objective with working with other authors is increasing my exposure and theirs. If we all help each other and promote, I’m put in front of their readers and they are put in front of mine. In terms of promoting this collection, I’ve done newsletters, Twitter, FB and giveaways. It was a collective effort and I’m thrilled to say that Love, Christmas 2 made the USA Today Bestseller list!

Fierce-Cade - The Fierce Five Series Book 4
Someone has to be the wildcard of the family...

Cade Fierce has spent more time worrying about who he wasn’t than focusing on who he was.

The only problem—his reputation precedes him...more so in the lady department.

Alex Marshall knows all about the Cades of the world. She’s spent her life deflecting their advances since she matured much faster than the rest of the girls her age, and avoiding the rumors that came with it. Trust issues, yeah, she has them full force. Now all she wants to do is focus on rebuilding her parents’ business that got left behind the times. Cade Fierce is the last thing she needs in her life. Too bad she can’t convince herself that a need and a want are two different things.

All for Love - Prequel - The Road Series
A lost purse. A forbidden love. A bond forged through the test of time.

On a cold lonely winter night, William Harper hurried to close the bar he was working at when he heard a tap on the window. Pushing the curtain aside, he gazed into the eyes of his future. It was a dream he desperately wanted, only he knew it was just out of reach.

Isabel Carmichael had been under her father’s thumb for way too long. As an adult, it was time to take control and go after what she wanted. Roadblocks, obstacles, and a stubborn man who thought he wasn’t good enough were not going to stand in her way of happiness.

How Gavin Stole Christmas
Can Jolene help Gavin find the Christmas spirit when he’s the epitome of Mr. Bah Humbug? Gavin Fierce didn’t always hate Christmas. He wasn’t always grouchy about caroling, decorated trees, and the holiday spirit. But a tragedy broke him of all those fond family moments and memories. Now it’s not worth opening himself up to it again. Why bother to magnify the hurt even more? Jolene O’Malley has always gotten her way. A little loud, a little overzealous, and a whole lot of pushy. She doesn’t know why Gavin feels the way he does about her favorite holiday, but she’s determined to make him understand. To make him feel something she knows is just hidden away trying to find its way out again. If anyone can make Gavin change, it’s her. After all, she’s a master at helping others.
