The awesome KD Rose is hosting me on her blog today. Please stop by and say hello.
Thank you my fabulous writer buddy, Sun Chara, for tagging me.
Her writing process can be found here https:/www.facebook.com/sunchara3%C2%A0
I’m currently working on a New Adult Paranormal novel. I’m also busy with edits of a sexy New Adult novella series contracted to Breathless Press. I am also querying a young adult novel and a new adult novel with different publishers. My editor is the super awesome Haleigh Rucinsky.
My book differs from others because there aren’t many books set in South Africa. I live in a beautiful, culturally diverse country and we have a unique Blend of cultures here – we also have a mix of British and USA English. There’s re a lot of stories to be told and I’ve found a publisher that loves working with me.
I write books set in South Africa about characters who start off soft and gentle and then grow stronger because that’s what I know best.
I wrote whenever I have time. There isn’t a particular process or routine. I’ve invested in a word processing app for my iPad as well as plenty notebooks to jot down ideas. I write on the go and even on my blackberry. For that reason I prefer full QWERTY keypads on my mobile phones.
Next week the fabulous, multi published international author, Ruchi Vasudeva takes over. Here’s a sneak peek at Ruchi.
You can find Ruchi here:
And here’s a little about Ruchi:
Ruchi Vasudeva is a doctor by profession, a teacher by vocation and, in her own words, an author by destiny. The writing bug has long resided in her and a contest held by Harlequin for Indian authors gave her a golden opportunity to have her dream realized. She debuted in August ’13 with her book ‘Bollywood Fiancé For A Day’. Her new release ‘You Can’t Fight A Royal Attraction’ is her second book, both being published by Harlequin. She also won a contest for getting a short story published with Harper Collins which will be published soon. She writes romantic fiction with conflicted characters who come into their own in their quest of reaching out for love. She loves to write about spirited heroines getting hurtled out of their daily life as soon as they cross paths with their rather challenging heroes.
Please show Ruchi some support and let her know I sent you over.
Much love until my next post.
Please welcome SL Jayne on my blog today. She’s here to tell us about herself and a little about her “The Promise.”
1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
I like to chat, have fun with friends, read (lots) and write. I’m a mum, I live in the UK, and I enjoy spending time with family. I’m not a fan of shopping, of any kind lol. When I’m spending time with my daughter, she is usually kicking my arse at singing on the Wii or Playstation. Some days me and my friends have crazy moments and are what’s app or voxer singing to each other just for the hell of it.
2. When did the writing bug hit?
It started after a conversation with my sister about how fun it would be to write about a book boyfriend. I had asked her what storyline she had in mind and she said she didn’t know- then one day (Aug 13th 2013) I was thinking about it, the storyline kind of just came to me and I started writing.
3. What do you love most about writing?
Being in a whole new world where anything goes, anything can happen. It’s fun too, you have these characters who take up your mind 24/7 that you can have fun with in a scene and not get called crazy for it.
And a few rapid fire questions…
What’s your favorite:
I can’t choose just one, I love too many.
See answer on Q 1 lol
The day my daughter was born
5. Book boyfriend
Can I break the rules and have 2? Kellan Kyle & Mason Templeton
Italian and dinners with sausages (toad in the hole, sausages casserole)
7. Item of clothing to write in
Anything, but I’m most comfortable in jogging bottoms and a vest top (even in the winter)
And a little bit about your book:
How far would you go to help your best friend?
Do you remember when you were young, and made pinky promises with your best friend about living together, dating movie stars, being famous and double weddings?
Ava and Rylee had the same plans. Knowing the home life Rylee had, Ava knew that all of those dreams of fun and freedom would always be just that. Dreams. That was until one night, Rylee asked Ava to pinky promise they would move away as soon as they were old enough and able to.
Ava’s advice to Rylee is to have fun and have faith, but most of all believe in herself and learn to trust that not all guys can’t be trusted… But can Ava learn to take herself own advice when it comes to her own heart?
This book is intended for age 17+ due to sexual content, violence and strong language.

And last but certainly not least – please tell us your absolute favorite writing moment or memory even if it’d from a manuscript you haven’t published.
The funniest moment is from The Promise, when Adam and the others visit the girls, they are talking about the pranks Adam has played on people. Other favourite moment(s) are the times with Matt and Rylee, bantering over the cocktails.
Thank you for joining us today, Sarah.
