Zoe Sinclair from Coming Home by @RebeccaBarber7 #RLFblog #contemporary #romance

Zoe Sinclair from Coming Home by Rebecca Barber7.

Interview with Zoe Sinclair

This interview is designed for your hero or heroine to tell readers about himself or herself. Answer the questions as if the character were talking.
Tell us about yourself, please.
I’m no one special. My name is Zoe Sinclair and I live in Melbourne Australia. I grew up in a small town hours from here. My parents died when I was younger and now I’m all alone. The moment I graduated high school I left town and didn’t look back. I couldn’t. But leaving also meant I left my shattered heart in the hands of the boy I’d always loved, Spencer. I’ve lied to everyone. Any excuse to avoid going back there and facing what I know is waiting for me is just too hard. So I lie. Until now. This time I decided to go back and face the music. I don’t know why, but it just felt like it was time.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
My biggest inner doubt is that I’m worth it. I don’t think I’m worthy of someone like Spencer’s faith in my and his unwavering love. I’m damaged. I’m broken. The shell of woman. I find it incredibly hard to believe I deserve good things after going through so much.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
Spencer McLaren is everything. I’ve known him my whole life. I married him when I was four and he gave me a daisy chain necklace. He is the most frustrating, annoying, compassionate guy in the world. He does have a bit of a hero complex, but because of the way his ass looks in those jeans he wears everywhere, you tend to forgive him for that one. At 17 I knew he was it for me. No other guy could or ever would measure up to him. I looked, I really did, but no one was anywhere near as perfect for me as Spencer.
What would that person say about you?
Spencer would probably say I’m the most frustratingly stubborn pain in the ass woman he’s ever me. He loves me anyway though sometimes he forgets J He’d call me Pippi and tug on my hair, like he used to when he was five. He’d bitch and moan about my lack of care when it comes to looking after myself and he’d tell you that sometimes I’m moody and he has no idea why. But he’d tell you I was his best friend in the world and he always knew, despite everything else, we’d figure it out one day.
What is your family like?
I don’t have a family. I was an only child and my parents both died when I was way too young to say goodbye to them. Spencer’s mother Jenna became the closest thing I had to family. She loved me like I was her own. She’s my family now.
Why are you happy (or not happy) with the way your story ended?
I am absolutely devastated with how my story ended. I think the author actually hates me and did it to torture me. Although she promises all will be made up for before the series ends.

About the Writer

Rebecca, one of four kids to her parents who are both primary school teachers, was born in Wollongong on the south coast of Australia before moving to the country with her family. After a few years of embracing all that country life had to offer, the family relocated to Port Macquarie with its white sand beaches. After a brief period enjoying the sun and the surf they finally settled in Canberra where Rebecca still lives today. But all through her childhood a notepad and a book where never far away. These days Rebecca is an avid reader, and when she isn’t buried in a book or cheering on her beloved football team she’s spending time with her husband Robert and their overly spoilt dog Levi.
What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?
Letting Spencer and Zoe go. This was so hard in fact I didn’t really let them go off into the sunset in peace. Instead I wrote book 2 and 3 just so I didn’t have to say goodbye just yet.
When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?
When I wrote Coming Home I was shocked by how completely emotionally draining this one was. It tore my heart to shreds and made me have more than one ugly cry moment. Even though I was the one who’d done it, I couldn’t stop it. The characters ran away with the story and I was merely a passenger.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
Absolutely! Book 2 and 3 are already written and will be released in 2017.
Why should readers who haven't picked up one of your books before give this one a try?
It’s full of real emotion. Good, bad and devastating. It’s not your typical friends to lovers type book, its real.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your readers?
I sincerely, from the bottom of my heart apologize for the ending. My sister is still made about that 18 months after reading it for the first time. I promise, if you stick with the series I will redeem myself.

Rourke a new #paranormalromance by @mjohnstonwriter #RLFblog

This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces the story.

About the Author

Marie Johnston lives in the upper-Midwest with her husband, four kids, and an old cat. Deciding to trade in her lab coat for a laptop, she’s writing down all the tales she’s been making up in her head for years. An avid reader of paranormal romance, these are the stories hanging out and waiting to be told, between the demands of work, home, and the endless chauffeuring that comes with children.

Interview with Marie Johnston

Why did you write this book?
The series started with Demetrius. He appeared in my first series, The Sigma Menace, and as soon as I wrote him, I knew he had a story. As that series progressed, the sexy vampires demanded their own series. That Demetrius had to be the first book was obvious to me, and as I wrote each vampire told me their order. Rourke said he was next, and I was excited to write him.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Hands down—paranormal romance. I started out reading fantasy and when I realized I kept scrounging books, looking for the romance, it dawned on me. Why not just read romance? I cruised through every genre and settled on paranormal although I do dabble in contemporary. However, a well written romance captures me no matter the genre.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
When I was young, I l-o-v-e-d The Blue Sword. It had such an impact that decades later, I’d have to say the heroine Harry Crewe is my favorite. Stolen young girl trained to be a warrior and falls in love with the hot dude who stole her. Lots of tropes and I loved all of them.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
After The Sigma Menace, I decided to take my world in two directions. I don’t know that it was the best decision, though. When I finish one book, I’m so hyped to write the next in the series, buuuut I’m flip-flopping back and forth. Now that Rourke, book 2 from the New Vampire Disorder, is released, the next book is Ancient Ties from Pale Moonlight. I do enjoy writing the Pale Moonlight books because they are standalone reads in the same world with familiar characters.
Please tell us about your latest book.
  Grace Otto was a vampire child adopted by humans and raised in a secluded but loving environment. When she stumbles across their murders, she comes face to face with Rourke, the male who’s haunted her nightmares, who might have killed her birth family. It’s not long before she realizes the mysterious male is not the one responsible for her parents’ demise, but their pasts are irrevocably linked and she’s forced to leave the human world to find out how.
  Around Grace, Rourke dares to think of a better future, one that can overwrite his traumatic history. Until she unwittingly commits an act of betrayal that threatens her and their entire species. To save Grace, Rourke will need to hunt down the demons of their past.

Meet a survivor, champion, and fighter @pmnp #cancer #pinktober

Dee Owens from Personalized Marketing Inc is helping Romance Lives Forever Blog celebrate Cancer Awareness Week 2016. Dee handles the websites for Kayelle Allen, The Author'sSecret, Marketing for Romance Writers, and several others. Her new design for the new Romance Lives Forever Blog will encore in 2017.

Hello Everyone,
My name is Dee Owens, single mother, grandmother, cancer survivor and supporter
for Cancer Awareness. I have had several family members, friends, coworkers face different types of cancer. I myself have had my own dealings with breast cancer. Cancer does not care what color we are, where we grew up, how rich or poor we are. No one deserves to have to deal with cancer and no one ever asks for it. Over the decades we have become more aware of what cancer is, where it comes from and ways to detect it. Many do not realize that Cancer is GENETIC, this means that if someone in your family has had it your chances of getting it have increased. If we think about it, it makes sense that it can be passed genetically, allergies, eye color, hair color, body types, diabetes are all genetically passed from one generation to the next.
Cancer does not just affect the person who has it but also those that take care of them. Fighting cancer is more than going and getting treatments, eating differently, or trying to live heathier, it is also about the emotional and financial drain it can have on you and your loved ones. Cancer treatments are often covered by medical insurance but not always and never 100% cost. When you think about how much it cost to just drive to the store, then imagine having to drive that 2-3 times a week, every week for an extended period of time. Or think about the additional equipment that is added to homes or the missed ballgame because of treatment or just feeling bad. These are all tolls that hit a family hard. That's why I decided to help support those fighting cancer and their loved ones by donating my time, finances, effort and skills. My company provides free domain name, hosting and maintenance for an online Cancer Awareness Community, http://Keep-HOPE-Alive.com
We also do yearly donations to local charities or organizations that help others. Plus, we take time to show support of others by simply letting people know they aren't alone. Which in our opinion is probably one of the single most important things we can do in the Fight Against Cancer.
I am also the Owner/CEO/Founder of Personalized Marketing Inc, also known as Personalized Marketing and Promotions. Being a single mother and needing a way to support my family but also be a stay-at-home mother, meant I needed a change. I began my journey in 2005 when I published my first novel, got a basic website and wanted to learn more. Personalized Marketing Inc opened in August of 2008 when a friend needing videos wondered why I didn't offer them as a service. We have the same Mission Statement today as when we opened, "Personalized Services tailored to you". We continually strive for 110% effort to bring you the best services we can provide.
Personalized Marketing Inc now offers all your online web presence needs under one company. We offer Domain Names, Hosting, Emails, Network, Social Site Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, SSL, Artwork, Website Development and Ghostwriting. At Personalized Marketing Inc the first thing we do is get to know you, we want to understand the efforts you have put in and what areas you want help with. There have been times that we also suggest additional items but never just "bloat" your services. If you would like to get to know more about Personalized Marketing Inc or myself, please visit any of the links provided below.
