Today is sweet as Candi

Oh, the life of a celebrity! Today, I’m being interviewed by the lovely Candice Kennington, who is every bit as sweet as her nickname. Too bad you can’t hear her beautifully modulated voice, which is the one I hear for my character Meredith.

In my answers to Candice’s probing questions, you’ll learn more about my cover painting, my research for the Middle-Eastern aspect of The Brevity of Roses, why my portrait of Jalal disappeared from my blog, and what a hammock has to do with my writing.

All right, I know you’re swooning with curiosity now, so click on over to Suffering From Writer’s Blog. Not only will you learn life-changing facts about me, but you could win a signed copy of my novel. Now, isn’t that sweet?

For those of you not the least interested in learning more about me or winning a book, here’s something for you. And even if you did read the interview and enter the contest, feel free to participate in the discussion here today.

I assume you’ve read a book—or ten—in the last month … few weeks … a year. I hope you enjoyed the experience. For me, part of the joy of reading is discussing books with someone. Let’s do that today. Tell  me about a book you read and liked. Or tell me about one you read and hated. Either way, let’s talk books today.

I do ask you to be nice. If you read a comment that has the opposite view of a book you’ve read, feel free to disagree, just do it respectfully.

News flash … author missing!

That author is me. I’m not here today because fellow author Kasie West has me chained up at her blog while she interrogates me. I find her dimples so intimidating, there’s no telling what she might get me to say. Don’t worry, she’ll be nice to you. In fact, she’s giving away an autographed print copy of my novel, The Brevity of Roses. So rush over there, read the interview, and leave a comment to enter the contest.

Here’s more good news. If you were waiting to buy my novel in print, your wait is over. It’s now available at Amazon. Is this your lucky day or what?

The Amazon page for this book is not complete yet, but you can read the description on the page for the Kindle version and you can read the first chapter here.
