We have a very special edition of Meet the Author this morning with Roane Publishing’s Annabelle Blume as part of her book tour for her new novella, Old Flame. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post. Check it out.
Have you ever had your heart broken? How did you cope?
Of course I’ve had a broken heart. I was great at moving on from relationships. I accepted that they were over, cried a bit, and then went back out into the world. It helps if you don’t get so lost in your relationship that you alienate your friends. When my young romances were over, I always had a great group of friends around me to help me get through.
So you took the mature route. Awesome. Have you ever done what the author t-shirts threaten and written somebody you dislike into a story? No need to name names, or anything. :) If so, what did you put them through?
No, I haven’t, yet. But honestly, I have plans to!
You HAVE to try it. It’s so much fun. Where did your hero come from? Someone you know? Dreams of the *ahem* daytime persuasion? What makes him tick? Inquiring minds would like to know.
Marc and James have been inspired by guys I’ve known in real life. I’ll go to my grave with their identities.
Hmm, I wonder if they’d recognize themselves if they read the book? Are there any other fantastic novels waiting to burst free from your imagination in the future? Can you tell us about them?
Definitely. There are more books coming for Hannah, Marc, and James. Their story is far from over. And, eventually, I will be working on an Urban Fantasy, but that’s on the back burner while Hannah is doing her thing in the Hearts Aflame Files.
UF is my fav thing to write! I’ll have to keep an eye out for that one. There are a lot of stereotypes cast in a romance novelist’s direction, like they must sleep in slinky lingerie when most I’ve met are dressed from head to toe in flannel jammies when they hit the sack. Are you a warm and comfy girl? Or an in-the-buff or silk and satin kind of girl?
Why just one? Right now, being the middle of winter and all, I’m rocking my sock monkey PJs and fuzzy socks on a regular basis. In the summer, I’m known to sleep in a tank top and some boy shorts. Naked doesn’t really work–three kids and all.
Ah, it gives kids character when their folks strut around naked. Or is that trauma? *snort* Do you have any quirks? Odd little tidbits about you that few people know?
I wave my freak flag pretty proudly, so everyone who knows me probably knows my quirks. Let’s see…I can pick things up with my toes. How’s that for a quirk?
Ha! I do that too. I can even write with them in a pinch. Biggest pet peeve, can be in writing or about people or circumstances.
Assholes disguised as nice people.
Oh yeah, that’s a big one of mine, too. If you could take back a single moment of your life, what would it be and why?
No regrets. I wouldn’t be who I am today without every single decision I’ve made along the way.
Wow. Oh yeah, me too, totally. Not!
Now that we’ve gotten to know Annabelle a little better, let’s have a look at the pretty, shall we?
Hannah Sullivan has spent the past three months stalking her ex-boyfriend, lurking in the bushes and hiding behind fake social media personas, convinced she can eventually rekindle the love they once shared.
But when she meets Marc, who is everything James never wanted to be and more, she begins to wonder if she’s got it all wrong.
Hannah must come to terms with her own demons before she can decipher between her delusional mission and the man of her dreams.
