Romancing September Across the World – Day 20 – Sonya Loveday & Candace Knoebel

Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 20 of the 3rd Annual Romancing September Across the World Blog Tour. If you haven’t checked out Rosie’s post from earlier, then go by https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/ and get caught up.

Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:

What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?

Sonya:

That’s a pretty tough question for me because I can’t pinpoint one thing. There’s so much to be inspired by. It’s everything and nothing…oddly enough. In the case of Love Always, Candace and I had talked about working on a book together since 2009 when we first started out writing. It took about 6 years to bring that idea into reality. But where did we start, and what were we going to write about? Candace had talked of trying her hand with contemporary romance, but wasn’t sure if taking on another genre was the right move for her. Not to mention she’s still working on a paranormal romance series that keeps her very busy. She’d mentioned to me prior to my last release of If Ever I Fall ( book 3 of my Six Series) that she still wanted to write a book together. She’d just wrapped up Everlost (book 3 of The Night Watchmen Series) leaving us both a moment in the in between to really think about making a co-written book a reality. Two months later, the book was written. That still blows my mind. We finished our book two months and one day after we started it…wow. The inspiration for that came from something Candace had typed up one night when she couldn’t sleep, making it the tip-off of what is now Love Always, and one of the main characters, Maggie, and her basketball orange, colored hair. So yeah, inspiration is everywhere. You just have to stand still, breathe in the moment and it will find its way to you.

Candace:

Inspiration. Gah, how I love it. I mean… honestly, I couldn’t have said it better than Sonya. It’s never one thing. It could be a picture, or a lyric, or a dream I had. It could be a passing thought. And sometimes it’s not always there. Some days I sit in front of my computer wanting to write, but never really feeling it, while others I can’t stop the ideas flowing. I think once you open yourself up to your inner child and step away from the fear of sounding ridiculous, you can think up anything you put your mind to. Every person is different, and I didn’t have one big inspiration that pushed me to write. Except for maybe the fact that I just wanted to have my thoughts on paper. A way to express my views on life in a way that a reader could enjoy. A way to express myself in a way that could be heard. That, I suppose, was my big inspiration.

Today’s featured book is “Love Always”. If you haven’t checked out the her book, then here’s a little about it and where to find it.

Love Always

 Book Description

Love Always,

I’ve met boys like him before. Rich. Bored. Always wearing a silver-spooned smile. But there is something different about him that piques my curiosity. The way he looks at me, like he is staring through the bars of a gilded cage he’s never left. Like he is one breath away from suffocating beneath a mound of responsibilities. He is different from the rest because he doesn’t wear his money… his money wears him. I just don’t think he knows it yet.

She’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before. She’s everything I’ve never been able to be. Carefree. Whimsical. A dreamer. Her laugh is infectious. She is irresistible. I can’t help but be drawn to her with an intensity that steals my breath and muddles my senses. I want to know her, need to know her, but how can I 

allow myself that liberty when I don’t have the freedom to make my own choices?

Phillip and Maggie think they have it all. Even though they come from opposite backgrounds, they each have bright futures paved out, with no distractions holding them back.

Until the fateful day they meet each other.

After a brief, adventurous time together in The Hamptons, Maggie and Phillip find themselves saying goodbye just as the spark of love flashes intensely between them. Can their budding connection be enough to survive the pulling tides of change, or will they drift apart before they even have a chance to explore what could have been?

Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:

What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?

I have always escaped into fiction, and my favourite authors give me new inspiration for writing every day. To be able to bring characters to life and create worlds for readers to escape to is the most wonderful feeling. Like many writers I talk to, I can’t not write – it’s just something I’ve always done and will always do, whether anybody reads my words or not!

Romancing September Across the World – Day 17 – Kimberly Wenzler

Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 17 of the 3rd Annual Romancing September Across the World Blog Tour. If you haven’t checked out Rosie’s post from earlier, then go by https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/ and get caught up.

Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:

What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?

I love to read. It is my favorite pastime. I spent decades devouring books, meeting memorable characters who made me laugh, cry and fall in love and I decided in my late thirties that I wanted to write my own stories. So, I’m really inspired by wonderful writing.

Changed to

My children. For years, I kept journals and wrote poetry to express myself, but I never took it a step further. When I had my children, I developed this great fear of dying and leaving them before they were grown. This fear inspired me to write my first full manuscript. I loved the process so much, I kept writing and haven’t stopped.

Now, through my love of reading, great writing inspires me to keep going.

Here’s a little bit about today’s author:

Kimberly Wenzler was born and raised on Long Island, New York, where she currently resides with her husband and their two sons. Wenzler writes primarily about  families, love and friendship. Both Sides of Love is her first novel.

Todays featured book is “Both Sides of Love”. If you haven’t checked out the her book, then here’s a little about it and where to find it.

Both Sides of Love

 Book Description

Twenty-one-year-old Lizzie Adler had everything a young woman could want: she was beautiful, bright, and had both a fun and faithful best friend and a handsome boyfriend with whom she was deeply in love. In one fell swoop, calamity strikes, stripping Lizzie of all that she holds dear.  While driving with her best friend, Nan, en route to a party, Lizzie collides with another car.

The results are devastating: Nan doesn’t survive the accident, while Lizzie is forever crippled and disfigured.  Lizzie undergoes scores of surgeries and endures ample physical therapy, which ultimately leave her with a face and body she can no longer recognize.

Meanwhile, Daniel has just recently left Lizzie to stay with his ailing grandparents in England.  He intended to return to her arms after just one summer. Little did he know that, after months of silence from his beloved, he would receive a cold, curt break-up letter, devoid of explanation.

Unable to bear the pain brought on by memories of who she used to be, Lizzie casts her former identity aside forever and decides to go by the name of Beth.

Fast forward twelve years, and Beth is now an almost-happily-married stay-at-home mom with a five-year-old daughter, Stacy.  Boredom and pressure from her husband, Alan prompt Beth to join Stacy’s school’s PTA.  There, she meets Noreen: the first woman she is able to connect with since Nan’s death so many years ago.  Beth is delighted to have finally found someone with whom to face the travails of womanhood.

Unfortunately, friendship with Noreen comes at an unexpected, and painfully high, price.

Funny, candid, and full of surprises, Both Sides of Love is a must-read for anyone who has ever loved, lost, and loved again.

Romancing September Across the World – Day 16 – Zee Monodee

Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 16 of the 3rd Annual Romancing September Across the World Blog Tour. If you haven’t checked out Rosie’s post from earlier, then go by https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/ and get caught up.

Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:

What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?

I would have to say my origins. My ancestors (three generations back) were from India; I grew up in a country considered part of Africa and where every major race and religion co-exists in harmony; I am a Muslim woman in the modern world; I’ve known globalisation from a very young age and have been open to the world for as long as I can remember. I am a melting pot – and this is what inspired my writing. My stories are melting pots of regions, cultures, traditions, world-views; where characters from every walk of life befriend each other and show the diversity of the world in race, religion, culture, but also showcase that at the heart of it, we’re all, despite our differences, just people striving for the same goals.

Here’s a little bit about today’s author:

Zee Monodee

Author, editor, smitten wife, in-over-her-head mum to a tween boy, best-buddy stepmum to a teenage lad, bookaholic, lover of all things fluffy & pink, chronic shoeaholic, incompetent housewife who’ll prolly always fail at making domestic goddess status…

Zee hails from the multicultural, rainbow-nation island of Mauritius, in the southern Indian Ocean, where she grew up on the figurative fence–one side had her ancestors’ Indian and Muslim culture; the other had modernity & the global village. Upon realising she could dip her toes into both sides without losing her integrity, she found her identity.
This quest for ‘finding your place’ is what she attempts to bring in all her stories, across all the genres she writes. Her heroines represent today’s women trying to reconcile love, life, & relationships in a melting pot of cultures, while her heroes are Alpha men who often get put back into their rightful place by the headstrong women she writes. Love is always a winner in her stories, though; that’s a given.

Whisk Me Up

 Book Description

After fainting backstage at a fashion week, supermodel Mary Beth Beresford is forced to go into hiding in the sleepy North Yorkshire village of Stonydale in Havisham Park when her sisters kidnap her and bring her there to their late father’s family stronghold so she’ll face the truth – she is anorexic.

Never one to be bossed around, Mary Beth attempts to break out the very next morning…only to land onto the path of the gorgeous, Viking-like pub owner and chef, Niall Barry.

Suddenly, sticking around in this one-horse town doesn’t look like Purgatory anymore.

But Niall is a very private person who shies away from celebrity, and Mary Beth is one of the biggest celebs on the planet. Not to mention that she is an aristocrat – daughter of the late earl and member of the peerage – while he is simply a working-class chef.

Is any relationship between them doomed to collapse like a failed soufflé?

Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:

What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?

Emotions are the biggest inspiration when it comes to writing. Every time I go for a walk in the city gardens, I observe people. There are so many different faces, each telling their own story by their eyes, their expressions, their body language. Every face screams a story in my head. With a cup of coffee in hand, and observant eyes, I sit under a tree with a note book and pen in hand, ready to let my imagination soar high in the sky, thinking of what the story could be behind the face.

Here’s a little bit about today’s author:

I grew up in a small town located in Gujarat – India, right between the sea and the desert. My heart feels at home in my current city of residence – the wonderful city of Harbour Bridge & Opera House, Sydney, Australia.

Romancing September Across the World – Day 14 – Nicky Wells

Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 14 of the 3rd Annual Romancing September Across the World Blog Tour. If you haven’t checked out Rosie’s post from earlier, then go by https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/ and get caught up.

Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:

What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?

Gosh, Stephanie, there’s a question and a half. I don’t even know how to begin to answer it. Trust me, I just consumed two cups of coffee and a half a packet of biscuits (okay, I admit it, I scoffed the lot!), while pondering your question, and I’m still no closer to an answer. Everything inspires me; the briefest snippet of conversation overheard on a bus, an ad on the telly, something one of the kids said or did, gossip from my friends: a writer’s inspiration is just about everywhere, and anything can spark the idea for a book. One of the books I have in the hopper right now was conceived on a bus while I was thinking about people and nine-to-five jobs. Dolly Parton’s classic film sprang to mind, a celebrity made an appearance in my head, and a plot screamed at me to be written down. Tragically I had no pen or paper, so I had to type the whole thing into the ‘note’ section on my mobile phone.

So you see, inspiration is everywhere, and anything can act as a writing prompt. But if you’re asking me why I write, now that’s a different question. I write, because I can’t not. It’s a simple necessity to me, like breathing or drinking water. Partly it’s my way of escapism. You know how people read to take a break from their real lives? Well, I write for that same reason. I write myself an alternative reality, and quite often I see myself in my leading lady’s starring role. (But don’t tell anyone—I might be embarrassed to admit this!). And partly I write because that’s how I make sense of real-life events. Don’t get me wrong, my books are all fiction; but they are also a way of analysing, exploring, and quite possibly improving (in a fictional kind of way) real events out of my own life. My husband always tells me I’m never happier than when I have a book on the go, and he’s probably right. I simply love spinning a good yarn!

Here’s a little bit about today’s author:

7 Years Bad Sex Nicky Wells

A seven-years-bad-sex curse? Surely not! Yet something went wrong when rock singer Casey and drummer Alex got married on that beautiful yacht anchored off St Tropez in the south of France. Something went badly wrong. For even on their wedding night, the young couple discovers a complete and somewhat surprising inability to make love. Muddling through their honeymoon with a string of thin excuses for their predicament, the lovers defer finding a solution (and panicking) until the return to their home in London. After all, they married for life and to make rock music, not for the love of sex. Right?

But when they resume life as normal in London, all hell breaks loose. Increasingly frantic in their quest for release, the unhappy newlyweds embark on a string of hilarious and occasionally harmful antics that drives them, their band, and an assortment of random strangers to the brink of despair. But it ain’t over ‘til it’s over or, in this case… it ain’t over ‘til the newlyweds sing.

Romancing September Across the World – Day 13 – Margaret Cullingford

Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 13 of the 3rd Annual Romancing September Across the World Blog Tour. If you haven’t checked out Rosie’s post from earlier, then go by https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/ and get caught up.

Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:

What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?

The short answer is the stimulation and enjoyment of reading all sorts of books.

Before I learnt to read, my youngest aunt loved to read to me, except when I asked to hear more of The Water Babies. Aunt Ede preferred fairy tales or any Beatrix Potter. I loved those too but I wanted to know what happened to Tom.  All her life Aunt read only romance so what she probably hated most in The Water Babies was the ending:

“And of course Tom married Ellie!”  My dear child, what a silly notion!

I still have the self-same copy of The Water Babies Aunt read from. I’ve loved books forever, couldn’t wait to learn to read. I spent hours curled in a cavernous armchair, like most of my generation, immersed in Enid Blyton, Richmal Compton, the classics – Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island, Three Musketeers. I thought, one day I would like to write a book, even tried to write Secret Seven-type stories. Finally, after an exceptionally long interval, I wrote two books in fact.

What sort of book(s)? Dark romance, Lizzie Lamb says.  Monica, in my first published novel says, “I don’t want to get married.  Not ever.  I want to live”. Looking back, may be The Water Babies has a lot to answer for.

Here’s a little bit about today’s author:

Windswept, Moi?

Windswept, Moi?

Margaret Cullingford, Mags to her friends, lives in Leicestershire, England with her forbearing husband and a temperamental tortoiseshell cat. Having made a timely escape from the rumpus of a university department, Mags realized a long-term ambition to write fiction, and in the process discovered, to her delight, she could create uproar she was able to control.

Mags published her debut novel Last Bite of the Cherry in 2012. Twins of a Gazelle is her second, published this year. Both have a similar theme. Clever woman, emotionally naïve, initially makes disastrous choice of man before meeting ‘The One’, not the conventional Girl-Meets-Boy love stories, but about love nevertheless. She is half-way through writing her as yet untitled third novel which veers towards mystery and suspense, a direction she found unable to resist.

Mags Cullingford, along with June Kearns, Lizzie Lamb and Adrienne Vaughan, is a member of the New Romantics Press an indie publishing collaboration.

Romancing September Across the World – Day 12 – Monica La Porta

Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 12 of the 3rd Annual Romancing September Across the World Blog Tour. If you haven’t checked out Rosie’s post from earlier, then go by https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/ and get caught up.

Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:

What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?

The biggest inspiration for my writing is the knowledge of my mortality. I am one of those persons who hope to leave a lasting trace of our passing. Every morning, when I wake, my thoughts go to all the people I’ve lost recently, and that makes me want to live life at its fullest. Being a full-time author is a dream come true, and something I keep working on every day. Even when sales are down, reviews are scathing, and I struggle with every word I write, I keep hitting the keyboard, knowing that there isn’t anything else I’d rather do but telling tales about worlds that only exists in my mind.

 Here’s a little bit about today’s author:

Monica La Porta

Monica La Porta is an Italian who landed in Seattle several years ago. Despite popular feelings about the Northwest weather, she finds the mist and the rain the perfect conditions to write. Being a strong advocate of universal acceptance and against violence in any form and shape, she is also glad to have landed precisely in Washington State. She is the author of The Ginecean Chronicles, a dystopian/science fiction series set on the planet Ginecea where women rule over a race of enslaved men and heterosexual love is considered a sin.

 Book Description

The archangel and the alpha werewolf, two men from rival species, an everlasting forbidden love.

A father and a son, estranged for eighteen years and reunited by fate.

Amidst bigotry and racism, Ludwig and Quintilius have been in love for almost two thousand years. Yet, their relationship is put to the ultimate test when Ludwig is named archangel, and he must decide between Quin and his brethren.

Lupo is a young, misguided werewolf in search of an identity and full of anger. Seeking to secure his position among the Reds, the most feared street gang in Rome, he commits himself to a life of crime, only to find love where he least expected.

One morning, after rescuing a vampire from a vicious werewolf attack, Ludwig makes a discovery that will link Quintilius’s and Lupo’s lives forever. But despite their good intentions, love and happiness aren’t in sight for the three men, while vampires, werewolves, and angels plot against them.

Romancing September Across the World – Day 11 – Adrienne Vaughn

Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 11 of the 3rd Annual Romancing September Across the World Blog Tour. If you haven’t checked out Rosie’s post from earlier, then go by https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/ and get caught up.

Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:

What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?

This is going to sound corny, but my biggest inspiration is my family, friends and my husband Jonathan. I come from a huge, sprawling, warm Irish family where I have witnessed firsthand every kind of love, though good and bad times. My friends too, new and old, all bring something different to my experience of love, in their relationships with their loved ones and families, it’s fascinating to see the many forms love takes. And finally, my own love story, after many years we’re still there for each other through thick and thin, my husband Jonathan is my biggest supporter when it comes to my writing career, and it has its up side, writers don’t talk much when they’re writing, so less chance of disagreements! J

Here’s a little bit about today’s author:

Adrienne Vaughan Author

I have been making up stories since I could speak; primarily to entertain my sister Reta, who from a very early age never allowed a plot or character to be repeated – tough audience. As soon as I could pick up a pen, I started writing them down. It was no surprise I wanted to be a journalist; ideally, the editor of a glossy magazine, so I could meet and marry a rock star – some of that came true – and in common with so many, I still hold the burning ambition to be a ‘Bond Girl’!

Today, I run a busy boutique PR consultancy in the East Midlands, and write my novels at every opportunity; early in the morning, late at night, on holiday, on aeroplanes and on dog walks in parks. So, that mad woman scribbling in purple pen in a notebook really is me, honestly.

I am proud to be a member of the Romantics Novelists’ Association, and true to form, am the editor of the association’s magazine, Romance Matters. I’m a founder of the indie publishing group, The New Romantics Press, and with the support of three other authors, Lizzie Lamb, June Kearns and Mags Cullingford, I have now written and published three novels – two of which, The Hollow Heart and A Change of Heart, were finalists in the Best Author Published Reads at the Festival of Romantic Fiction in 2013 and 2014 respectively. Not content with this slightly frenzied workload, Lizzie and I also contributed to a short story anthology, Hocus Pocus – which, I am delighted to say, has also been well received.

I may not have fallen for a rock star – the original plan – but definitely nabbed myself a hero, and now live in the middle of the English shires with my husband Jonathan, two cocker spaniels and a rescue cat named Agatha Christie.

I am also lucky enough to have a home in the Wicklow mountains, which helps me ‘keep my ear in’ and returning there goes some way to inspire the many characters featured in my stories.

My latest novel, Scandal of the Seahorse Hotel, is currently being scribbled down at every available moment – please look out for it, coming later this year.

Todays featured book is “Secrets of the Heart”. If you haven’t checked out her book, then here’s a little about it and where to find it.

Secrets Of The Heart

 

 Book Description

Finally free to be together on the remote Irish isle of Innishmahon, campaigning journalist Marianne Coltrane and her movie star partner, Ryan O’Gorman are looking forward to life away from the bright lights of Hollywood and the constant pursuit of the paparazzi.

However, when nature conspires to keep them apart and Ryan puts both his own and his son’s life at risk, Marianne finally realises how determined he is they should be a family. She now needs to put aside her own, deep rooted fear of commitment and come to terms with the sinister secrets buried within her family history.

Yet when Ryan’s own devastating secret is revealed, and their world is turned upside down, Marianne has to call upon more than determination to see them through. She has to believe in love with every fibre of her being, because if she cannot, it could mean not only the end of their relationship, but even life itself.
