#WOTR22 #attendingauthor #Spotlight – T.M. Cromer

T.M. Cromer

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

T.M. Cromer – award-winning author of kickass heroines and the men who adore them.

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

The others after. I always have fresh, fun ideas, but then I have to follow them up to keep a series going.

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I go with the unexpected. I hate repetition, so if I can come up with original or unique plots ideas, I’m at my happiest. Each character is an actual different person in my mind; they are going to act and respond differently than the others. I embrace that and run with it.

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

Start drinking early. Seriously, no tips. Each author has to find the routine that works for them. The biggest thing: sit down and write! Shut off the TV and shut out the outside world for ONE HOUR a day, and by the end of the month, you’ll have half a novel. By the end of two months, you’ll have it completed and ready for edits.

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

2-3 hours if I can manage it. That puts me at about 2,000-3,000 words a day. My goal is 2K, and if I achieve more, I’m happy as a pig in dirt.

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

Alastair Thorne from my Thorne Witches series. He started out as a villain in my mind, but I liked his dry humor so much, I had to change his character to someone who was just misunderstood. He crosses the line between right and wrong, but it’s all to keep his family safe. You have to love a man who would move mountains for you, right? He’s not only MY most beloved character, but my fans love him above all others, too.

If any of your books were to be made into a movie, who are the celebrities that would star in it? What book and who?

Well, it would have to be the entire Thorne Witches series, and we’ll go with Alastair Thorne to start. I see him played by someone suave and good looking. Someone who could pull off the snark without blinking an eye. Maybe someone in their 40s because my witches don’t age like normal mortals. Maybe Leonardo DiCaprio as he was in The Great Gatsby, or an actor like that. I can see Kate Blanchett as his wife, Rorie.

What is your definition of success?

Happiness. The ability to live life relatively stress free by doing what I love – writing!

#WOTR22 #RomanticSuspense – Burning Resolution, Stonebrooke Book 1 by T.M. Cromer

Armed with a New Year’s resolution and a surly attitude toward physical fitness, Erica Sutton hires a personal trainer to whip her pudgy self into shape. What she hadn’t bargained for was Zack Sharp – the owner of Workout World – assigning himself to be her workout nazi.

An obsessed ex-lover of Zack’s notices the attention he is paying Erica and sets out to remove the competition by any means possible.

Now, Erica and Zack are holed up, debating the merits of donuts, sex, and love while their crazy stalker sets out to light their world, quite literally, on fire. It’s a race against time to find their assailant before the relationship they’ve started to build is burnt to the ground.



I received this book for an honest review.

*Snort* Yes I am still laughing at this book.  I mean if you like funny and insane then this my friends is a book for you.  I mean the first chapter had me LAUGHING so hard and out loud.  It’s an over the top yet so much fun read.  I think that if you enjoyed Tara Sivec’s writing then you will need to read these as well!

Erica, the main character is soo me….packing on a few pounds and hating the way she looks she decided to go to the gym.  Holy Mother of God who is the work out sadist…errr…coach??  Why yes hottie from high school Zach that’s who!  The banter had me cracking up at parts and laughing so hard.  When the two are flirting and thinking about the good old high school days there is a bit of drama which causes Erica and Zach to spend more and more time together which makes them become more and more attracted to each other.  The chemistry was hot and their relationship was a wild ride.  The suspense storyline was good but you can kiiiiiiinda figure it out but the twist we get was something I wasn’t expecting!!

Yes there were times I was gonna vagina punch Erica for letting her insecurities push Zach away and same to him with a solid nut punch because he would compare Erica to women from his past but generally I loved the two.  I laughed so hard and was thrilled when the book 2’s story line started to take shape…man Mason and Shondra are gonna be so much fun to read because he opened his mouth and inserts his foot A LOT around her!!  LOL

Job titles she currently holds: Author, Professional Waster-of-Time, Hammock Mounting Safety Instructor, Margarita Mixologist, and Spoiler of Dogs.

On a serious note: Until now, “a jack of all trades, master of none” best described T.M. Yet, through all her career changes, her husband has been a SAINT. He would always gently encourage T.M. to return to her real love – writing. She’s always felt it is important to be true to yourself, and to feed your soul. So, here she goes on this wonderful new adventure. She hopes you’ll join her.
