Love & The Goddess Blog Tour: Author Interview



So today I have a great post for you all.  The author of Love & The Goddess is here to share an author interview with you.  I reviewed this wonderful book in September of this year.  To see my review CLICK HERE.



     Where did the idea for your new  book  come from?
My time working as a fashion stylist and p.r. consultant.

    Are any of the characters inspired by someone in real life?
All my characters are composites of several people I’ve met. The more exaggerated traits in an individual make for interesting characteristics.

     Do you listen to music while you write, or do you prefer quiet?
Yes I sometimes listen to music. It depends on the mood and can vary from Annie Lennox to  Loreena McKennit or something classical. And sometimes I prefer quiet.

     If you could jump in to any book and live there, which book would you choose?
I like the idea of time travel and going between alternate universes so I’d choose The Time traveler’s Wife or Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials.

    What was last book you bought?
The Perfume collector by Kathleen Tessaro

Why did you choose to write about Goddesses?
I was obsessed by the Greek myth of the triple goddess and they say obsession is a good thing for a writer as it inspires passion. Also I love Carl Jung’s  work on identification with archetypes. The goddesses in the triple myth are powerful archetypes, present in all women. It was fun to play with an intellectual concept and write an easy to read, humorous story around it.

Blog Tour: Last Call by Michele G. Miller Guest Post






 So today I have a great blog tour for you, Last Call by Michele G. Miller.  Enjoy this guest post, blurb and author information. 

 


The Blurb:


“You are cordially invited…” 

Four words that spark the fear of God into any gently bred, single southern woman. 

When Savannah Guthry receives an invitation to her cousin’s wedding back home in Charleston, South Carolina, her first thoughts aren’t of flowers and dresses. Instead, she's reminded of the groom: her first love and the reason she ended up at a college 500 miles away from home. 

Determined to show up and dazzle not only her ex but her spoiled cousin too, Savannah allows her friends to set her up on a series of dates looking for Mr. Right. 

Wrapped up in her memories of the past and the drama of her new romances, Savannah doesn’t see the dangerous threat to her life coming… 

She might not land her Prince Charming before her Last Call.

**This book is a New Adult Romantic Suspense. It is intended for mature (17+) audiences due to sexual situations and mild language

Fantasy heroes endure. They are embedded in our cultural fabric, dwarfing other literary figures and the mere men and women of history. Achilles and Odysseus, Gilgamesh and Beowulf. King Arthur and Robin Hood, Macbeth and Sherlock Holmes, Conan and Luke Skywalker. They dominate our legends, and tower over popular culture.

But what makes a fantasy hero? How do the best writers create them, and bring them to life on the page? In WRITING FANTASY HEROES some of the most successful fantasy writers of our time--Steven Erikson, C.L. Werner, Brandon Sanderson, Janet & Chris Morris, Cecelia Holland, Alex Bledsoe, Jennifer Brozek, Ian C. Esslemont, Orson Scott Card, Ari Marmell, Cat Rambo, Howard Andrew Jones, Paul Kearney and Glen Cook--pull back the curtain to reveal the secrets of creating heroes that live and breathe, and steal readers' hearts.
