#WOTR20 #AuthorSpotlight – Sutton Bishop

Sutton Bishop

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Sutton Bishop (Please cut the following info as you want. I’m sure I’ve provided far too much. 🙂 )

I’m a Midwest mom of four—two of each, ranging from 18 to 26-years-old, and married to the love of my life. I have degrees in anthropology, forensics, and history. Traveling is my passion, most notably to places where I can explore the past.

Afraid to Fall, Ancient Passages Book 1, is my debut romance and is set in Guatemala. I am most comfortable writing from what I know. I’ve visited almost all of the countries in Central American, spending the more extensive time in Nicaragua, Mexico, and Guatemala. In Nica, I work with young girls who have been sexually assaulted and removed from their homes. I’m astounded by their warmth, spirit, and grace. I have an even deeper affinity for Guatemala; one of my sons is Mayan.

When traveling, I immerse myself, absorbing history, culture, and peoples’ stories. I take tons of photos, with permission, and journal. The majority of my storyboard photos for Afraid to Fall are mine, and they triggered memories and helped create story threads. This is also true for Afraid to Hope, Ancient Passages Book 2, releasing early 2020. Afraid to Hope is set in Morocco. Readers first met the main character in Afraid to Fall. (Yes, I have have traveled to Morocco for archaeology.) At this time, Book 3 will be set in Europe.

When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.

I’m fortunate to office out of our home. I listen to different play lists, depending on what kind of scenes I’m imagining and writing. I primarily work in Scrivener off my Mac and an extra-large monitor, so that I’m able to move between research, notes, and the story. My desk is large and my chair is adjusted to fit only me. I also have a foot rest for my very short legs (I’m 5’2″). I scrap writing when there’s a bunch of stuff going on (like painters this past summer or when outr internet was down for a day shy of eight weeks) or we have company or family staying with us.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

I love to interact with new-to-me readers, my readers, and the romance tribe, including getting to know other authors.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Amy Tan, Margaret Atwood, Diana Gabaldon, Megan March, Anne Lamott, Jane Austen, Isabel Allende, JK Rowling, Mary Shelley, Dan Brown, Nicolas Sparks, Robert Ludlum, Booth Tarkington, Dr. Seuss, Clive Cussler (I could go on and on.)

When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?

It’s a combo. I’m consistent when there aren’t any tasks on my family/mom/wife task calendar.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I have two: 1) Receiving the first proof of Afraid to Fall. I cried. 2) Watching Afraid to Fall being printed by the local printer I use. OMG!

Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?

I still have all of my childhood books. I grew up with little and received a book on my birthday and at Christmas every year. My mom dated and wrote in each one. They’ve become even more special after she died.

#Review #YARomance #SeriesStarter #Standalone Waking Up in Vegas (The One Series, #1) by Natasha Preston


 

There are bad hangovers, then there’s waking up married to your brother’s idiot friend.

On the trip of a lifetime, a drunken Wren and intoxicated Brody stumble upon a wedding ceremony and decide to tag along for the ride. But being spectators isn’t quite wild enough when you’ve got tequila in your toes, and before either of them can stop what they’re about to do, “We now pronounce you husband and wife.”

Once sober and home, the incompatible newlyweds try everything within their power to end their pantomime marriage. Unfortunately for them, the promise and vows they made to spend their life together now aren’t as easy to break as they’d once hoped.

Especially not when Brody starts to have a change of heart.

Book one in a new standalone series.

#WOTR20 #AuthorSpotlight – Cindy Tanner

Cindy Tanner

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Cindy Tanner. As an only child that grew up on a farm in rural Indiana an overactive imagination developed out of necessity. I started making up stories before I could write. I love animals and have a tendency to collect the ones need a home. I love reading as much as I love writing and cannot stay in one genre for either!

When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.

When I’m writing I need music to set the mood for whatever scene I’m writing *wink* and snacks (Reese’s pieces or peanut butter M&M are my favorite)

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

BOOKS! Getting to buy new books, getting to talk to people that love books as much as I do, and best of all getting to talk to the author that created the awesome stories I love reading!

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Diana Gabaldon

When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?

When I can keep a consistent schedule I feel invincible however I let life (and my son) distract me more than I should. I do dedicate time everyday to write even if it is just a few hundred words on my phone.

Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?

Goofy’s Big Race. It was my Dad’s favorite book to read to me. He quoted it to me growing so many time especially when I would get frustrated when things weren’t happening as fast as I wanted. He passed away about a year and a half before I had my son. I still have the copy that my dad always read to me. Now I read it to my son. It means the world to me to be able to share something with my son that I enjoyed so much with my dad.

#Review #MC – Bleed for It: Hellions Motorcycle Club (Hellions Ride On #3) by Chelsea Camaron

Bleed for It: Hellions Motorcycle Club (Hellions Ride On Book 3)

This is their second chance romance, and it’s one passion fueled ride … are you ready?

Axel

There isn’t a single memory in my life that doesn’t involve the Hellions Motorcycle Club.

I’m the son of Drexel “Rex” Crews and raised by Andy “Shooter” Jenkins. What should have torn two brothers apart brought us all together.

I am Axel Devon Crews.

My loyalty runs deep, knows no bounds, and cannot be shaken.

Yesnia

I don’t remember how to relax. I don’t know how to feel safe.

I am Yesnia Dominguez Almanza.

I was born in chaos, a mighty storm.

Their love knows no time or distance, only loyalty and passion fuel this ride.


Goodreads



I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

Axel and Yesnia!!  Whoop Whoop!!  I have been dying to read this love story especially after reading the Cartel Bitch series!!  I am going to say you really need to read the Cartel Duet to understand this story.  Trust me they are amazing as well so its just another 2 books of yummy to read!!!

As with every single book, I feel in complete love with this couple.  Axel has been raised by two of the most different Club members…Rex the man whore and Shooter the swoon worth man.  SO of course, I couldn’t wait to meet his as a man!!  LOL  And he did not disappoint me at all. Yesnia ….what a life she has lead.  Of course its not been the best life but when she and Axel hook up it is just what she needed when she needed it!!

Engaging with readers and talking about books is, of course, my top priority.

#Review #PartofaSeries Ring Ready (Hotline Hookup 2) by Cary Hart


“I do.” Two little words I’ve always wanted to say…

You know before I turned into a perpetually single, TV-dinner-eating party of one with thirty cats and a worn-out BOB. Wink. Wink.

I’ve swiped left, right, up, down. I’m over it! Now I’m taking matters into my own manicured hands and changing the dating game with my guaranteed to set a date love app.

The only thing standing in my way? Owen Decker. And his huge…ego.

With his perfect hair, perfect teeth, and less than perfect proposal. Not the down-on-one-knee kind. Oh no. A business proposal to merge my dating app with the Hotline Hookup brand.

What harm could it do? Owen is the last person I would walk down the aisle to. After all, he’s my brother’s best-friend and business partner.

Been there. Done that…literally!

I guess you can say we’re frenemies with benefits.

But I’m looking for the one. And this app is going to help me find him. Just not in the way I’d planned.

It’s easy to fall for the enemy when you’re ring ready!

Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/48499364-ring-ready

Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B082CYKS3P?pf_rd_p=ab873d20-a0ca-439b-ac45-cd78f07a84d8&pf_rd_r=R5KYGYP3FK91QNFVRR4K

Omg where do i even begin this book  is amazing and as always leaving me wanting more. Mal is trying to prove too herself that she is more of an assistant to her asshole of a boss who she may have hooked up with a few years ago and he completely broke her heart. Owen Decker is a hot shot producer for a big radio show Hotline Hookup and is trying to do everything he can to hold his feeling for Mal in even if it makes her life a living nightmare. When Mal come up with an idea to pitch a new app to her brother to take Hotline Hookup to the next level he makes her work with Owen and they have to try and get along for the sake of the app. Can these two put the past behind them and make this app the next best thing or will they get caught up in their feelings for one another and get tangled up in the sheets once again. You will definitely be swooning over Owen and Mal’s chemistry.  I freaking love this books os much and the characters that we met in the first book. Kramer is back and just as hilarious as before. CJ and Clover are there for Mal proving just how amazing it is to have a core group of friends that you can tell anything to.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Cary Hart hails from the Midwest. A sassy, coffee drinking, sometimes sailor swearing, Spotify addict, lover of all things books!

When not pushing women down the stairs in the fictional world, Cary has her hands full. Soccer mom in all sense of the word to two wild and crazy, spoiled kiddos, and wife to the most supportive husband. In addition to writing full time, she enjoys binge watching Netflix, laying around in her hammock and baking up cookies for her family and friends.

Cary writes real, raw romance! In her stories the characters deal with life’s everyday struggles and unwanted drama, they talk about the ugly and they become the broken. Everyone deserves a happy ending, but sometimes before you can appreciate the light, there has to be darkness.

Growing up, if someone would have told her she would become a writer, she wouldn’t have believed them. It wasn’t until she got her hands on her first romance novel, that the passion grew. Now she couldn’t imagine her life any other way – she’s living her dream.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Nature of the Beast (Gods of DC 3) by Tricia Andersen


He was young, sexy and a huge flirt.

There was no way that Freddy, Ares high priest and the manager of his fight club, would have any interest in a old woman like Demeter. But when the goddess of the harvest arrives in London looking for her daughter, it was hard to leave the charming bartender. Despite the age difference, it was hard to deny the attraction. Would he still want her if he knew the truth about her, especially about the married ex-lover who would never let her go?

She was way out of his league.

Freddy did everything in his power to keep the goddess, Demeter, sitting at his bar sipping tea. It didn’t matter her age. He fell deeper in love with each passing day. However, Freddy holds secrets, some very deadly. Can he keep her in his bed and at his side or will the truth drive them apart for eternity?

The goddess harvest is off to London to find her daughter after she went off with her husband.

Once in London Demeter went to Ares club and that’s were she saw him Freddy and she caught his eye. Freddy was Ares high priest, and the bar manager for his mortal world appearance. The two couldn’t hide their feelings for each other but there were a few things that stood in their way. 1 Freddy has a dark secret that he isnt sure how Demeter is going to take it when she finds out, and 2 Zeus isnt going to let Demeter up without a fight because he thinks he owns her and isnt going to let anyone have her while he’s the king of gods.
