Welcome to Day 15 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.
Today my guest author is Laura E. James and I want to thank her for blogging with me today. Here is a little about her and her book Follow Me, Follow You.
- What inspired you to write this book?
‘Follow Me, Follow You’ started life as ‘140 Characters or Less’, an idea sparked by my attendance to the inaugural Festival of Romance, in Watford, UK, 2011. I had Facebooked and tweeted with the fab author Carole Matthews, and met her at the Festival, where I assured her I was not a stalker. It was said in jest, but it started me thinking about the whole business of social media and ‘following’ someone famous…
- What’s your favourite part of this book and why?
My favourite part is the end as it finishes exactly how I’d imagined when I first started writing the book.
- What is your philosophy on writing and life?
I focus on what I can do, not what I can’t.
- Name your three favourite books that you’ve written — feel free to list buy links
I’ve written two novels, but have short stories in a number of anthologies.
‘Truth or Dare?’ was my debut novel for Choc Lit, published under their Lite imprint. It’s a tale of passion and obsession and knowing when to do the wrong thing for the right reason.
‘Follow Me, Follow You’ is my second novel for Choc Lit, and my first paperback, out now. It’s a story of learning how to live and love again.
‘Truly, Madly, Deeply’ is the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s recent anthology, in which I have a short story entitled ‘Bitter Sweet’, a gentle, romantic nod to the healing properties of chocolate. My story is in the extended digital version.
- What are your goals for this year?
My writing goal is to complete a solid draft of ‘What Doesn’t Kill You’, my work in progress, and submit it to my publisher, Choc Lit, for their amazing tasting panel to review and hopefully approve.
- If you had to give one piece of advice what would it be?
Writing advice: Write from the heart.
Life advice: From my friend and fellow Choc Lit writer, Sue Moorcroft ‒ avoid making enemies.
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…
