Welcome to Day 23 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.

Today my guest author is Mandy Baggot and I want to thank her for blogging with me today. Here is a little about her and her book Made in Nashville.

Made in Nashville MandyBaggot

1) What inspired you to write this book?

I’m a huge fan of country music and have been since my Grandad introduced me to it as a child. I also adore the TV show, Nashville. It was only a matter of time before that passion spilled over into my writing life.


2) What’s your favourite part of this book and why?

 Without any doubt…my hero Jared Marshall. At the moment he is just my favourite hero of all time! He’s bad but he’s good. He bends the rules but you understand why. He’s passionate about everything he does, he’s a fighter, a survivor and of course he’s totally hot too!


3) What is your philosophy on writing and life? 

Do everything with your heart 100% in it. That goes for writing and life. If you’re not fully committed to something it will show. Only write/do what you truly feel emotion for.


4) Name your three favourite books that you’ve written — feel free to list buy links

 Made in Nashville  – because it combines my love of country music and my hottest hero!

 Security – because this is my first romantic suspense with a rough, tough and gorgeous hero. Think The Bodyguard meets 24.

 Excess All Areas – because this was my very first novel and it’s set on the Greek island of Corfu which is like a second home to me.


5) What are your goals for this year? 

This year, in May, I started working with an agent. The lovely Kate Nash from the Kate Nash Literary Agency is helping me plot my career path and we have plans for world domination LOL. I’d like to see a summer read out in 2015 with another out in the autumn. I’ve also got a couple of short story projects I’m working on with another team of writers. The main aim is to write more and keep on enjoying it!

 6) If you had to give one piece of advice what would it be? 

Don’t sweat the small stuff. Enjoy life, enjoy your writing, word counts are only there as a guide, keep reading, love what you do, we’re all here for a good time not a long time! I have a feeling that was more than one piece of advice. Ooops!

Latest release: Made in Nashville –






Made in Nashville…feel the country!

An on-stage attack left Honor Blackwood with more scars than just the one on her face. It’s been ten years since she left her spot as Nashville’s brightest country music star. Is now the time to return? And is she brave enough to do it?

Country rebel and rock star, Jared ‘Jed’ Marshall is hot property on the Tennessee music scene in more ways than one. He’s wild, he’s sexy and everybody wants a piece of him. But when he sets his sights on Honor, is it pure attraction or just distraction on his mind?

Honor’s record label sign the ex-boyfriend that dumped her and suddenly going back to her old life is harder than she thought. And when a secret from the past becomes public knowledge it’s no longer just about the music… Are all the people in her life lying to her to get what they want?

Join the country scene to find out!

Made in Nashville – where the off-stage action’s as hot as the music!

Thank you for having me!

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…

  1. Thank you so much for hosting me on Romancing September, Stephanie! I’m a little be jealous of you guys getting Season 3 of Nashville tomorrow! The UK has to wait until February!

    Mandy 🙂

  2. After reading more and more about your book my interest is peeked further. I liked your philosophy, “Do everything with your heart 100% in it” and your advice, “Don’t sweat the small stuff”. These are both good things to keep in mind as each day goes by. The beast of luck to your goals for 2015!!
