Coffee With Author Pru Warren

IG Pru Warren Compressed 300x300 Coffee With Author Pru WarrenRae: Welcome to the blog. I’ve got a spiced Latte with Almond Milk and a drizzle of chocolate in my mug. What’s in your cuppa?

Pru: Yours sounds pretty good! At the moment, though, my cuppa is a vat of Earl Grey with an embarrassingly large quantity of half-and-half as well as my personal demon, sugar. Also – thank you. I’m delighted to be here!

Rae: Congratulations on your recent release of “Joan’s Journal” in the Anthology Love Gone Viral. I love that all the proceeds from the sale will be donated to World Central Kitchen and Feeding America. Romance fiction is so powerful and the community is so giving. I can’t wait to hear how much you all raise.

Pru: Me, too! And I love that we’re donating 100% of the proceeds to programs that combat hunger. There’s something so offensive – so intrinsically wrong – about people in this nation going hungry. I think about families with hungry kids and it makes me almost ill. Even in this bizarre economy, that’s not the world I want to live in. I hope we can sell a lot of books, to help people in need. Fingers crossed!

Dirty Dozen 300x300 Coffee With Author Pru Warren

1. What is your must read book and why?

I have two entire bookcases filled with the books I hope come with me if I’m ever abducted by aliens; the books I need to have if I’m trapped in a Kurt Vonnegut zoo on another planet. But if I had to pick just one… hang on. Let me go stare at them. Oh, Lordy. Don’t tell the others I chose a favorite: I’mma pick Jennifer Crusie. “Welcome to Temptation.”

2. If I visit your hometown, where am I going and what’s the best place to grab a bite?

You’re going to northern Virginia, and we’re either going to get souvlaki pitas at the family restaurant down the street or we’re hitting one of the Great American restaurants; I like Artie’s because they have insanely good hot fudge sundaes. (Sugar. My own personal demon. Comes with me everywhere.)

3. What is one thing readers would be surprised to know about you?

Given that I am entirely unpublished until now, I can’t imagine anyone knows anything about me in the first place… but okay: I can harmonize a ton. I always wanted to be a back-up singer.

4. What is your guilty pleasure?

It used to be romance novels instead of terrifyingly sad Book Club picks – but now I’m writing romantic comedy and I’m proud as could be of it!

5. What are you afraid of?

Snakes. I saw a black snake in the garden two years ago and abandoned the space entirely. I wish he’d do more weeding; things are looking very tatty in his kingdom.

6. Tats or No Tats? If tats, how many and what did you choose for your first one?

No tats. I admire them – but I keep evolving. I can’t imagine choosing one image that would continue to delight me for the rest of my life.

7. Binge watcher or weekly viewer? Which show(s)?

Binge. Definitely. I just blew through “The Expanse” (and then all the novels), and before that I had to rewatch the entirety of “Parks and Recreation” while doing an annoyingly hard jigsaw puzzle. Before that… I think it was “Jack Ryan.” Jim from The Office cleans up NICE.

8. If you could pick a book you’ve read and make it into a movie, which book would it be (besides yours 🙂 )?

“Poison Princess” by Kresley Cole. It’s YA, but it’s very, very good! Wish she’d get cracking on the next one; I’ve got an envie for the sequel. (From the books. I’m making inside jokes to myself.)

9. What is the one thing you can’t live without?

Burt’s Bees pink grapefruit chapstick. I have them hidden all over the house, in the pocket of every coat, in every tote bag. There are two in the car – just in case. As addictions go, it’s pretty milquetoast… but I’m not alone. There are a lot of us chapstick addicts!

10. What’s the one career that gives you the shudders?

The job of picking up road kill on Rock Creek Parkway.

11. If I opened up your handbag/bag/briefcase, what item would I be shocked to see?

I’d be shocked to see a handbag or purse; I carry only my phone in a case where I can stick credit cards, etc. There’s nothing shocking here; maybe the Nordstroms gift card my mother gave me before she died? Will you accept sentimental instead of shocking?

12. What app on your phone/ipad gets the most use?

Would that it were something more elevated… in fact, it’s solitaire. Jeez. I should make up something better. Pretend I said THE NEW YORK TIMES APP. There. That sounds teddibleh intelligent.

Rae: Thank you for hanging out today.

Jeanne Adams:

Jeanne Adams writes award-winning suspense, paranormal, mysteries and urban fantasies.  She’s also a sought-after speaker, who knows a thing or two about getting rid of the evidence…

Jeanne specializes in thrills and suspense.  Even her paranormal and urban fantasies have a suspense element, so be prepared!  She loves football, baseball, dogs, Halloween and the weird and she teaches classes for writers on body disposal.

Jeanne lives in DC with her husband and two growing sons, as well as two dogs – a Lab and an Irish Water Spaniel.  Don’t tell, but she’s prone to adopting more dogs when her husband isn’t looking.

Featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine, and other publications, her books have been consistently hailed as “One of the best Suspense Books of the Year!” by Romantic Times.  You can find her at her newly redesigned website: www.JeanneAdams.com, on Twitter at www.twitter.com/JeanneAdams or at www.Facebook.com/JeanneAdamsAuthorpattern 4 elements 0006 Layer 4 copy 269x300 Whos Your Daddy by Jeanne Adams, Caren Crane, and Nancy Northcott

caren crane helms photo e1418264946985 251x300 Whos Your Daddy by Jeanne Adams, Caren Crane, and Nancy NorthcottCaren Crane was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, the home of country music. She does not enjoy country music. She does love books, however, and Nashville had plenty of those in the Inglewood branch of the Nashville Public Library. Thanks to the librarians, she discovered classical literature (they approved) and Barbara Cartland (they did not approve). Thanks to her mother, she discovered Harlequin Romances. When the writing bug bit, she was doing cubicle time in the world of electrical engineering. She greatly prefers writing.
Caren lives in North Carolina with her wonderful husband and a semi-feral rescue cat. She has three fiercely intelligent, gorgeous grown children, having neatly side-stepped her mother’s threat that she would have children Just Like Her. You can find info and excerpts at www.carencrane.com.

A sucker for fast action and wrenching emotion, Nancy combines the romance and high stakes (and sometimes the magic) she loves in the books she writes.

 She’s the author of the Light Mage Wars/Protectors paranormal romances, the Lethal Webs and Arachnid Files romantic suspense series, and the historical fantasy trilogy The Boar King’s Honor. With author Jeanne Adams, she co-writes the Outcast Station space opera series.

The Trouble with Cowboys by Victoria James – Review and Giveaway

TTWC  200x300 The Trouble with Cowboys by Victoria James   Review and GiveawayThe Trouble with Cowboys by Victoria James is a heartwarming story full of hope, and forgiveness when it comes to love and family. Lainey Sullivan spent her entire life guarding her heart, especially around cowboys. When Ty Donnelly returns to reconnect with his ill-stricken father, he will alter her plans and force her to confront her biggest fear.

Wishing River, Montana has everything Lainey wants, well…sort of. If only she was brave enough to pursue her dreams. Lainey’s latest obstacle just rode into town, can she take her own advice?

There is something so exciting about Ty Donnelly, who he is, why he left, and the fact that he’s not the same man who left all those years ago. Will Lainey be able to earn his trust and discover the truth? If she does, will she trust him not to run off and leave her heart shattered?

There has to be more than an ill family member that would bring him back home, there just has to be. Lainey will discover that this cowboy might steal her heart, but he also may keep it for himself and change her thoughts about cowboys forever.

Discover a romance that is all about building fences, learning to trust, and learning to trust. 1 Sweet Larger Image Final 300x300 The Trouble with Cowboys by Victoria James   Review and GiveawayThis is a sweet romance with enough sweetness to put a pink blush on your cheeks and leave your heart full of joy. Warm, sensual, and delicious.

I received an ARC from the publisher for a fair and honest review.
