When rumors start circling, 
Do you walk the other way?
Or give them something to talk about?
She was the one I always secretly wanted
But it was never meant to be,
I landed myself in the friend zone.
He was my high-school crush,
Who grew up into the single sexy dad,
Putting his life on the line with every fire he fought.
One spin around the dance floor has our friends talking,
Wondering if we could get any closer.
We blew the rumors off until one day, we really gave them something to talk about.

#WOTR21 #AuthorSpotlight #6YearFamily – Dawn Brower

Dawn Brower

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Hello, my name is Dawn Brower and I have been writing now for six years (I think…). When I was younger I wanted to be a writer, but not a novelist. My dream was to be a journalist. I don’t know when or where I gave up on that idea. Life…just happened. My father believed I’d be the next Mark Twain. I think he had high expectations (and at the time I thought he was nuts). If I had one wish, I’d have liked to have finished my first book while he was still alive. It might not be a classic by any stretch, but the fact that I finished a book would have made him proud.

I have 70+ books of various lengths available now. All romance, some historical, some time travel, some contemporary, and some romantic suspense. I like to play in a lot of sand boxes. Most of my books fall into some realm of historical though.

I live in Michigan, and have most of my life (one year I lived in Florida. That was the year hurricane Andrew hit and it freaked my mother out. We moved back to MI two weeks later.) For the most part I love it here, but I hate winter. To be more precise…I hate snow. I can deal with the cold. Snow makes me cranky in my advanced age.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

This one depends on the book(s). Some the first is harder, because it takes more research, and planning. You need to organize what you’re going to do and outline the plan as much as possible. It’s not harder to write, but harder in the sense its more work initially. Some books start out with only one book in mind and they spin into a whole series. Writing that book opens your mind up to other possibilities. Then some books, that come later, it’s like pulling teeth to get the characters from point A to point B. It’s not a this or that sort of answer for me.

What comes first? The plot or characters

The plot mostly, but the characters play a huge part in how it forms in my mind.

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

At one time I would have said Karen Marie Moning. I used to devour everything she wrote, and I went to many events that involved her. She is the reason I’m close to a select group of people. I met them because of her. Now? This is hard because I’ve met so many authors I look up to. I think Nalini Singh. She’s one of my favorite authors I have not yet met yet.

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

What sparks your imagination? When will Bluebell get a book? Do you need a beta reader? I volunteer as tribute. 😉

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series.

The blurb. I hate, hate, hate blurbs. I actually enjoy naming things lol.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

That feeling after finishing my first book. It was exhilarating. There was a time I thought I would never have the patience to write an entire book, and the fact that I did, still amazes me. Now 70+ written works later…that still leaves me with a heady feeling.

What is your definition of success?

Meeting my deadlines… Writing is rewarding, but let’s be honest…it helps that people actually buy my work so I can keep writing. Every book is a new sense of stress and praying that people will like it. Would it be nice to hit it big? Yes. But it’s important to me that I put out good stories and that people enjoy them. I’m all right with my place in the world.

#WOTR21 – #Review – It’s a Wonderful Midlife Crisis (Good to the Last Death #1) by Robyn Peterman

It's A Wonderful Midlife Crisis (Good To The Last Death, #1)

A Paranormal Women’s Fiction with a bit of class, and a lot of sass, for anyone who feels like age is just a number!

Whoever said life begins at forty must have been heavily medicated, drunk, or delusional.

Thirty-nine was a fantastic year. I was married to the man I loved. I had a body that worked without creaking. My grandma, who raised me, was still healthy, and life was pretty damned good.

But as they say, all good things come to an end. I’d honestly love to know who ’they’ are and rip them a new one.

One year later, I’m a widow. My joints are starting to ache. Gram is in the nursing home, and dead people think my home is some kind of supernatural bed and breakfast. Gluing body parts onto semi-transparent people has become a side job—deceased people I’m not even sure are actually there. I think they need my help, but since I don’t speak dead, we’re having a few issues.

To add to the heap of trouble, there’s a new dangerously smokin’ hot lawyer at the firm who won’t stop giving me the eye. My BFF is
thrilled with her new frozen face, thanks to her plastic surgeon, her alimony check, and the miracle of Botox. And then there’s the little conundrum that I’m becoming way too attached to my ghostly squatters… Like Cher, I’d like to turn back time. Now.

No can do.

Whatever. I have wine, good friends, and an industrial sized box of superglue. What could possibly go wrong?

Everything, apparently.

All in all, it’s shaping up to be a wonderful midlife crisis…

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

This is a fun and quirky story about Daisy’s midlife crisis. Here she is tooling along in life and suddenly becomes a widow..that’s not the funny part, I promise. Things go haywire at her job and now she sees dead people. OMG, how sixth sense is that?! Her grandmother tries to explain things but Daisy finds herself fumbling along trying to figure out what it is she is supposed to be doing. These ghosts won’t go away, their parts are falling off and she is gluing them back on, she can’t get any work done, and she has an amazingly sexy man that keeps pushing himself into her life. Oh, but wait! There’s more! We find out some secrets about her husband too! This book is a riot! “Midlife was more than a series of crises. It was a freaking destination, and the ride was seriously bumpy.” While some of it was a bit corny, it was seriously funny and definitely heart-warming. I really needed a pick me up and something different from the usual paranormal romance-y type stuff. This was just what I needed. Bravo, Robyn! I look forward to continuing this journey!

Robyn Peterman

NYT and USA Today best selling author, Robyn Peterman writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. She writes snarky, sexy, funny paranormal and snarky, sexy, funny contemporaries.
Her addictions include laughing really hard with friends, shoes (the expensive kind), Target, Coke with extra ice in a Yeti cup, bejeweled reading glasses, her kids, her super-hot hubby and collecting stray animals.
A former professional actress, with Broadway, film and T.V. credits, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her peace and makes her whole, plus having a job where she can work in her sweatpants works really well for her.

#WOTR21 #Review – An Unexpected Brew: A Cinderella Story by J.E. Mueller

An Unexpected Brew: A Cinderella Story (A Fairytale Adventure #1)

A modern magical retelling of the classic Cinderella tale.

After years of working at the family coffee shop under her step-mom’s rule, Arnessa longs for something more. She dreams of leaving her small town to attend a bigger college where she can really learn her magic. As hope slowly seems to fade, a charming stranger offers to help her with her studies, and turns her fears into a reason to stand up for herself.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Delightfully charming! This was a super sweet twist on Cinderella. Cinderella and the prince both have a little magic of their own. All of the Cinderella elements were here but it was very modern and made it fun to read. Arnessa works at the coffee shop but so does one of her evil step sisters, Diamond. And she is a peach, NOT! Diamond lays claim to a guy who wants nothing to do with Diamond and everything to do with Arnessa. And due to said claim, the other evil step sister and evil stepmother come rearing their ugly heads. Since this is a retelling, it runs its natural course and there is the wonderful HEA. However, I really liked this retelling because they got to know each other. It wasn’t one night and then we have to match a shoe to a foot and that whole fiasco. This has a truly great “getting to know you” love story and it was adorable! If you need something super sweet that will lift you up, you should definitely give this a try.

J E Mueller

J.E.Mueller is known as the storyteller among her friend group. Telling tales and weaving plots was always second nature for Mueller growing up. After college Mueller decided to go from telling and dabbling in plots to actually getting a novel out there in the world. After many cups of coffee later, and several dead red pens, there was success.

Aside from writing, the author also enjoys reading a wide variety of books and has even joined in helping others with the writing process by alpha and beta reading. When not part of the written world, Mueller can also be found playing action/adventure games, rpgs, sandbox, and nonsense games. Some of her favorites include. Skyrim, Alice: Madness Returns, Splatoon, Fat Princess, Stardew Valley, and the Legend of Zelda series.

The others after it!

What comes first? The plot or characters 

Depends on the series – most of the time a single scene starts in my mind that I can’t shake and I build from there.
