So, better late than never. The Romantic Suspense group (#43) in Rachael Harrie’s Platform Building Campaign is hosting a Getting-to-Know-You Blogfest during the week of November 13-19.
This is what Joy asked us to do:
This is difficult, choosing only two. However, two inspirational romantic suspense authors are: Nora Roberts and J.D.Robb. Nora, especially, writes many genres, of which romantic suspense is only one, but she is an awesome writer, not to mention prolific.
- 1. Name two [romantic suspense] authors who inspire you.
I like romance, but I also like a lot of suspense. And I adore crime thrillers so thought why not link crime and romance?
- 2. How did you start writing in your genre?
This sounds like a lot of work during NaNoWriMo! Okay, let's go...here's my 'elevator' pitch for my second novel, In Search of the Last Cowboy.
- 3. You've landed a meeting with your dream agent. Write a one paragraph pitch to sell your novel to him/her. (No more than four sentences)
Sabotage. It sounds way more interesting, but, on the other hand my protagonist above does meet with an accident...
- 4. Sabotage or accident- which would put your female lead through and why?
Pantser. I try to be a plotter, but that comes along once I've got my idea, a few characters and a bit of a start. I'm at 12,000 words on my third novel, this one set in Afghanistan. Now the characters have all come by, we've had a getting-to-know you party, sorted out our cultural differences, and now I can sit down and get plotting or maybe I'll just go along for what's going to be a wild ride.
- 5. Plotter or Pantser? Who are you?
