Added to the pressure to promote, there is also the need to write another story, and then another one. We also need to network with our peers, continue to learn our craft (I love online workshops) and, oh yeah, have a life. Where are we supposed to find the time to blog and tweet? Second to that, where are we supposed to find the time to do something interesting enough to blog about? You surely don’t want to hear about my thrilling exploits in the grocery store, my hair-raising experiments in the kitchen (I’m actually a pretty good cook) or my death defying tending of the hens (one of the little bleeps pecks hard enough to draw blood - she is called Nuggets).
All that is leading up to my angsting over writing this guest post. (I guess angsting isn’t a word, since it has that red squiggle under it.)
I regularly visit fellow author blogs, and if they’re guesting on someone else’s blog, I visit there as well. (Guesting is also not a word. Go figure.) I don’t often comment, well, seldom do I comment. Okay, I hardly ever comment. But I do visit and read the blogs. Quite often they are in the form of a questionnaire. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I borrowed a few questions. Here are my answers.
I’ve been writing seriously for five years.
If money weren’t an issue, I’d travel. Scotland and France are #1 and #2 on my wish list. Scotland because it’s where my ancestors lived. France because I visited eons ago and it’s beautiful.
Coming Undone is an older woman/younger man spicy contemporary, out now from The Wild Rose Press. My first book, Where There’s Heat, also from TWRP, is also a spicy contemporary. I write spicy.
Chocolate, in pretty much any form. My favourite is Coffee Crisp. Second favourite, Hershey’s Kisses.
Up next on my to-do list is getting a couple of requested submissions out the door. Then I’ll dig into a paranormal romance that’s been sitting on my laptop, drumming it’s fingers, demanding to be finished. And yes, it’s spicy.
Thank you so much, Sarah, for letting me visit your blog today. I’ll be happy to hang out and chit chat. I’ll also give one lucky commenter a free download of my newest book, Coming Undone.
Grace Hood has been creating adventures for her imaginary friends since childhood. As soon as she discovered, and devoured, her grandmother's stash of medical romance novels, all plots had to lead to a happily-ever-after.
Grace writes full time, concentrating on sexy, steamy contemporary romance, hot paranormal romance, and spicy historical romance.
Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Grace now lives in Maine with her dear husband, two teenagers, three cats, one budgie, one surviving gold fish, and six hens. When she's not torturing her heroes and heroines, she can be found either in her kitchen whipping up something chocolate, or in her yard chasing the hens out of the garden.
