Remember when you were a kid, playing a game at school, and there was some kind of mistake or interruption, so somebody yelled “Do over?” Well, that’s what happened with me and my post about The Wedding Day by Sharon Kleve. Due to a miscommunication, I didn’t post the interview with Sharon yesterday as I planned. So, do over! Welcome back, Sharon.
Why do you write romance?
It makes me feel good. I have a technical day job and writing romance balances out my brain.
Please tell us about your book. What ideas or images inspired this novel?
When I heard about Kindle Worlds, I thought I’d give writing fan fiction a try. Fan fiction is a great way for readers to discover authors who are also fans of their favorite books. I love best-selling author Lucy Kevin’s writing so I chose to write a fan fiction book around Four Weddings and a Fiasco. The Wedding Switch was so much fun, I wrote another one called, The Wedding Day, which was released yesterday.
Do you have an ideal reader in mind when you write? If so, please describe that reader.
Someone who likes sweet, light-hearted romance with animals and food in them. I include some sort of pet and recipes in all of my books.
Please describe your writing routine.
I write every evening after dinner and on the weekends. It takes up most of my free time, but I’m lucky to have an understanding husband. He takes care of our cat and some of our household duties when I have a deadline.
What advice do you give new writers just starting out?
There’s a lot of talk about self-publishing and how great it is. How you can have more control of your finished work. My advice is to find a trusted eBook publisher and stick with them. I’ve been with Books To Go Now http://bookstogonow.com/ from the beginning. Except for my two Kindle Worlds books. I feel fortunate to have found them early in my career.
More about The Wedding Day:
Cora Henley doesn’t believe in love at first sight. In her personal experience love never lasts. Her parents’ nasty divorce and her ex-boyfriend’s betrayal have her convinced long-term relationships don’t work.
Kane Price is finally ready to settle down, get married and have a family. When he falls head-over-heels for Cora, she makes it clear she’s not interested in a serious relationship. He’s come up against difficult obstacles before and never gives up until he gets what he wants. And he wants Cora.
If Cora can just trust her heart to Kane they both might find their happily-ever-after.
