5 Easy Questions: Mel Curtis Author of Breaking the Rules #RLFblog #contemporary

Breaking The Rules  
5 Easy Questions is an interview is designed to be quick, easy, and fun. Today's guest is Melinda Curtis.

What is your go-to meal to order when you dine out? Your favorite "I know it will hit the spot" item.
Chicken, apple, walnut, gorgonzola salad.
Who is your "book boyfriend"? You know, that hottie you read about and drool over.
My latest preoccupation is with Cyrus Jones from The Hot Zone (Jayne Castle). Take some sexy, add some paranormal and I'm in!
What were you like when you were in school?
Will my kids read this? I should probably talk about elementary school. I was a model student, of course.
Would you rather stay inside and watch snow falling, or get out in it and build a snowman?
I'm inside, drinking wine in front of the fire and reading a good book.
What is your favorite quote?
"Don't strive for perfection when good will do." As a writer, you try to write fresh, but sometimes it's okay to type 'he said.'

About the Book

To say Jack and Vivian Gordon's marriage has been rocky would be an understatement. The Gordons have been on a roller coaster of love and lust, but can't seem to get on the same page at the same time. This power couple needs a time-out to find their happily ever after. And life coach to Hollywood's rich and powerful, Cora Rule, has just the solution – have the couple sign their divorce papers in a safe room…and lock them inside.

  1. "I can relate to your comment," she said. :) So true. ^_^

    1. Kayelle, how often do we stress about words on the page. A wise editor once said to me, "Worry about getting the story down and then worry about being clever." Thanks for hosting me today! I hope readers enjoy all my #FREEBIES!

  2. What a fun interview and my fav was the school bit. Weren't we all models students? LOL! Great advice on writing too. Sometimes it's better to just let go and write. As Aaron Rodgers says, "R-E-L-A-X". :D MRS N

  3. In case the bit.ly link doesn't work for that free novella (had some reports it was wonky) - http://www.melindacurtis.net/join-melinda-s-mailing-list

    And Mrs N - giving yourself permission to write crap is the greatest thing!

    1. That's so true. My writing group focuses on not editing as you go. Write, submit, set the edits aside, and move to the next part. It's quite freeing.

  4. I'm staring down an editorial letter today - only 1.5 pages single spaced! I love it when one of the comments is: the cover image features a hero with shorter hair than what is described in the book. You know what that means...haircut for the hero! At least before the end of the book.

  5. LOL. I once rewrote a scene in a book to match the heroine's dress on the cover. :)
