Thanks so much to the lovely Lindsay J. Pryor who nominated me to take part in this blog hop. Apparently each author invites others to answer 5 particular questions, talk about their latest release or WIP and a provide a tasty recipe that ties into it.
I’m not sure how safe it is to ask me for a recipe, but here goes with the questions!
I don’t have a current release (yet!)…but my current WIP is:
…currently nicknamed Courting Scandal, a short Regency set novella which I’m hoping will wing its way to the publisher by the end of August for approval or not! It’s set in 1810 and involves art and a huge gamble – and that’s all I’m saying.
1. When writing are you a snacker? If so, sweet or salty?
Yes! Sweet! When writing I will clear the house of anything involving chocolate. Not only does it keep my strength up, the sugar is obviously good for my writing brain. Obviously…
2. Are you an outliner or someone who flies by the seat of their pants? Are they real pants or jammies??
Generally I would say I’m an outliner, but it doesn’t always follow that I outline all my stories. Some of them just jump out of nowhere, and I fly by the seat of my pants until it’s done! And that would be telling.
3. When cooking or baking, do you follow the recipe exactly or wing it??
As the gene required to be able to cook well – and not only that want to cook at all – obviously passed me by, when I do cook it’s normally by following the recipe. It’s the Mum who wings it.
4. What is next for you after this book?
For this particular heroine I’m already plotting and have written the first chapter for the sequel involving her sister. This will be a full length novel, tentative finish date around the end of the year. I also have lots of ideas in development, mostly historical but now also an idea for a Spanish-set modern.
5. Last Question…on a level of one being slightly naughty to ten being whoo whoo steamy, where does your book land???
Hmm, my own personal opinion – but I would say at the moment it more than slightly naughty! The hero would probably prefer whoo whoo steamy, but that’s why I’m in the driving seat, honey.
Yikes, this is the scary part – I really do not do cooking, ever. Frankly neither would my heroine – she has servants. Am I allowed food suggestions to read along to in good time when I hope you guys will have this book in your hot little hands?
Think of the hero and the heroine sharing an ice at Gunther’s in London.
If he was to be a flavour it would be dark chocolate, caramel and a hint of walunt. The heroine on the other hand would be a light and fresh flavour, like a lemon sorbet – as she has an almighty kick too!
Now if any of you are clever enough to make ice-cream you have some flavours to try!
As I’ve just done a mammoth tag, I’m not sure who to pass this onto – so if I can identify any
victims writers in the meantime, I’ll add them on.
