MM MARCH MADNESS!!
Twinsie Talk is proud to present the 3rd Annual MM March Madness – a month to focus on the M/M, F/F, M/M/F, M/F/M authors. We love these books and want to share it with the rest of the world. Each day we will post an interview. We will also include any reviews that we have done on these books as well as links to the books.
Our hope is that you will love this genre as much as we do! <3
Today is devoted to Cardeno C
Cardeno C.—CC to friends—is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few awwws into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.
Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.
I’m a vegetarian who enjoys cooking and baking. I also love puppy snuggles.
There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?
I try to have a combination of books that are connected and books that aren’t. I call my connected books collections rather than series because they are each standalone with only location or worlds in common. As far as easier or harder, I don’t see a difference although in paranormal worlds, it’s nice to be able to expand a world once you put the effort into building it.
Where do you do most of your writing?
I do almost all of my writing at home, usually on my sofa. I’m not a desk person.
What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?
I’m always reading books from the many wonderful authors in the gay romance genre. Currently, I’m reading books by Riley Hart and Felice Stevens, who share a blog and a Facebook group with me.
Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?
I absolutely believe the gay romance genre is growing! I chat with readers new to our wonderful genre every day. They come in after discovering a book by one of us and the next thing we know, they have hundreds of books on their e-readers. I hope I’m contributing to the growth by getting my books out there and (hopefully) writing books readers enjoy.
What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?
I’m often surprised by my good fortune in being able to succeed at this. It’s a huge gift in my life.
What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on a standalone novel tentatively called Moral Turpitude. I’m also working on some new audio books – The One Who Saves Me and More Than Everything.
What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?
I’m doing this interview on a Saturday night and I’m smiling while I do it so that counts as fun. I also love spending time with friends and family. And, of course, I always love reading.
