Welcome to Day 6 of the 2nd Annual Romancing September Across The World Blog Tour. I’ve teamed up with Rosie Amber again this year. We’re promoting 30 awesome romance authors in 30 days. Help us out by cross promoting when you can and check out these authors.
Don’t forget to go over to Rosie Amber’s page and check out her page too. I’ll put the link at the bottom of this post.
Today my guest author is Jill Steeples and I want to thank her for blogging with me today. Here is a little about her and her book Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off.
1) What inspired you to write this book?
It came about from that simple thought of what would happen if you were given the opportunity to read your best friend’s diary. Would you? And if you did, and found out something you really didn’t want to know, how would you react?
2) What’s your favourite part of this book and why?
I love the scenes set in the fictional seaside town of Hollisea. The town is loosely based on the seaside resorts I visited as child with my parents on our summer holidays and I loved recreating some of my memories in the story. Anna meets a lot of colourful characters while she’s there and it was great fun to take her on that adventure.
3) What is your philosophy on writing and life?
Get on with it! Which I suppose works on both those fronts.
4) Name your three favourite books that you’ve written — feel free to list buy links
I’ve only written three books so that works very well too!
My debut novel ‘Desperately Seeking Heaven’ is a romantic comedy featuring the gorgeous ghost of a TV celebrity.

5) What are your goals for this year?
To finish my Christmas novel and then to turn my attention back to my family and my home, which have both been sadly neglected these past few months.
6) If you had to give one piece of advice what would it be?
To aspiring writers, I would say join a writers’ group if you can, either online or in person, to gain feedback on your work and to share in the highs and lows of your writing journey with like-minded people.
Jill Steeples writes short stories for the popular women’s magazines and fun and flirty romances for Carina UK. When she’s not writing she enjoys reading, walking, baking cakes, eating them and drinking wine. She lives in Bedfordshire with her husband and two children.
Thanks so much for joining us on this grand adventure we call Romancing September Across the World 2014 Blog Tour.
As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

I totally agree with your opinion that aspiring writers should join a writing group or, my opinion, to find as many betas as possible. we can learn a lot form beck up from readers or other authors.
May your wish for this year goal come true!
I like the sound of your book with the ghost, Desperately Seeking Heaven, it also makes me think of the film title Desperately seeking Susan, I’m sure I’ve only seen it once but the title stays with me.

I agree Rosie Amber. I like the sound for ‘Desperately Seeking Heaven’. I have a certain fondness for books that have a ghost as the hero/heroine and the other being human, especially after reading books by Cindy Miles and Debbie Peterson. I always like to see how everything turns out for them in the end.
