An Interview with Anne Leigh Parrish, Author of Women Within + Audiobook Giveaway

We're happy to introduce you Anne Leigh Parrish, a short story writer and a novelist.

 

Anne's debut novel, What Is Found, What Is Lost appeared in 2014. Women Within, her second novel, was published in September 2017 by Black Rose Writing. Another multi-generational story,  it weaves together three lives at the Lindell Retirement home, using themes of care-giving, women’s rights, and female identity. Her next novel, The Amendment, is scheduled to be released in June 2018.  

 

What inspired you to become a writer? Was it an easy path?

 

I always loved stories, made-up characters, and the musical quality of language. Lyrical prose is very important to me, both as a writer and as a reader. And no, becoming a writer was by no means easy. It takes years of trying a new approach, getting feedback, working with that feedback, and most of all, taking chances.

 

Your newest novel, Women Within, is a story of three women whose paths cross at the Lindell Retirement Home. Can you tell our readers more about the book and the main characters?

 

Constance Maynard, age 94, is a resident at Lindell. She is a retired professor of History who feels that women have always been unfairly treated and valued primarily for their reproductive capability. She adopts a child when a member of her own family cannot care for her properly, and declares that the child is hers, although she in unmarried. This is in the 1950’s, a time when social mores were harsh. She embraces the disdain she is shown, and rises above it all to prove that she is as worthy as any of her male colleagues.

 

Her two aides are the other two women in the book, the first of whom, 50’s-something Eunice Fitch, has her own female challenges. For one thing, her mother, a hard-drinking and unsympathetic person, was a poor role model. From an early obsession with silent screen star Lilian Gish, Eunice feels that the best thing to do is to be steadfast and uncomplaining. While these traits make her a great caregiver, it proves disastrous in her serial relationships with men.

 

Lastly, we have Sam (short for Samantha) Clark, in her twenties, overweight, whose mother is also difficult. She yearns to be pretty and petite, only to discover that her physical strength and endurance are in fact much more valuable.

Your book focuses on the female issues and women relationships, you also give a solid  insight of the caregiving industry. Why did you choose to talk about these subjects in your novel?

 

To be honest, this is very personal territory for me, at least in terms of the relationships women have with other women, particularly family members. My mother was difficult. She was highly intelligent, well-education, successful in her career as a professor – and yes, she serves as the inspiration for Constance Maynard in the novel – but she was deeply dissatisfied with just about everything, my father most of all. Though she was unhappy in her marriage, she never accepted his decision to divorce her, and spent the rest of her life blaming him for a situation she in large part created. My only sibling is a sister (six years older than I), and she, too, was difficult. Her hatred of me, and her abuse of me when I was young had an enormously negative influence in my life.

 

As to caregiving, I once worked in a retirement home when I was younger, and then much later, spent time visiting my father in one as he declined. I am fascinated by the almost insular nature of that world, and the contrast between those who seldom leave it, and the people who come and go every day.

 

What are you working on right now? We know that your third novel is coming next year.

 

I’m working on a novel called Maggie’s Ruse. Like The Amendment, the novel appearing in June, it contains characters from my 2013 linked story collection, Our Love Could Light the World. It features a pair of identical twins, overly-privileged Millennials trying to find themselves as individuals by putting some distance between them.

 

What writers have an impact on your reading, and of course, writing? 

 

All “the greats,” but specifically Flannery O’Connor, Virginia Woolf, Eudora Welty, Alice Munro, and Louise Erdrich.

 

What are you reading right now, Anne?

 

Ann Beattie’s newest story collection, The Accomplished Guest.

 

What three titles would you take on a desert island?

 

Boy, that’s a tough one. Probably The Round House by Louise Erdrich, Mendocino Fire: Stories by Elizabeth Tallent, and Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout.

 

The Round House - Louise ErdrichMendocino Fire: Stories - Elizabeth TallentOlive Kitteridge - Elizabeth Strout

 

Paper books or e-books?

When I have lots of time, and am staying in one place – that is, not on an airplane, or road trip, then paper books. Otherwise, the convenience of an e-book is just too great to ignore.

 

Anne, it’s shelfie time! Our readers would love to see your home library.

Interview: Christi Barth (Bad For Her)

 

Hello and Welcome All!

 

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Christi Barth author of Bad For Her.

 

…and I’m very lucky to be here. Thanks for letting me chat about my book!

 

What do you do when you are not writing?

 

Hahahahaha. Not writing? What is this concept of which you speak? I adore cooking. Big, complicated, multi-course meals and reading cookbooks for fun. (Before you ask, my husband does all the dishes.) 

 

What was your best read of the month?

 

I just finished In A Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware – a completely twisty mystery that I couldn’t figure out at all, so it was great! But back here in Romance Land, it’d be Blood Guard by Megan Erickson – a whole new vampire world. Wait – can I do three? The Wedding Date Bargain by Mira Lynn Kelly – a super fun contemporary.

 

Of course you can do three. We readers like verity and options when it comes to picking our our books….

 

 

 

What types of scenes are your most favorite to write?

 

Witty, hysterical banter. Whether sexy/flirty between the hero/heroine, or laugh-out-loud funny between best friends/bromance. So. Much. FUN!

 

If you could have dinner with any three authors (alive or dead, who would you choose and why?

 

Agatha Christie, to find out what really happened when she disappeared for 11 days; Brad Meltzer, because I think he knows a ton of secrets that I’d worm out of him about D.C. and the Masons; and Ernest Hemingway (whose books I can’t stand) because I think he’d be an amazing dinner companion. 

 

If you could swap lives with the heroine of any romance book, which book would you choose? 

 

Hmmm – it is always a toss up between being royalty and being magical…. Mia Devlin, from Face the Fire, in Nora Roberts’ Three Sisters trilogy – because she has kick ass powers and runs a bookstore!

 

 

 

A LOOK INTO BAD FOR HER

 

Please share the opening lines of Bad For Her….

Ronan Connolly had a talent for sizing up the mood in a room. More than once, hell, more times than the thirty-one years under his belt, it had saved his life. Because when you worked for the Chicago mob, sometimes all the heads-up you got that a situation was going south was a squinted eye or a tightened mouth.

Is anything in the book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?

 

I will freely admit that I’ve never had sex on a forest floor—or been in the mob—so this one is 100% pure imagination. But when I wrote my wedding planning Aisle Bound series, there were several true-life experiences in there (with the names changed to protect the happily married)

 

Tell us all about your main characters — Who are they? What makes them tick? 

 

Rafe Maguire (at least, that’s his name now that the WITSEC program has changed it five times) lives and dies for his family. Specifically, his two brothers. He’s given up his entire life—literally—to keep them safe. He used to be the Chicago mob’s fixer. Money, women, power, all his. Now Rafe’s an auto mechanic in a beach town the size of a sneeze, trying to lay low. And trying desperately not to fall for a gorgeous doctor who makes him almost want to second-guess this life of lies he’s building.

 

Doctor Mollie Vickers loves her small town—she just doesn’t want to date anyone in it who already knows her too well. So she’s thrilled to meet a handsome stranger on the side of the road. Especially one who doesn’t want a relationship, either. Her plate’s full already, living with a pot-selling grandmother and a juvenile delinquent nephew. Rafe’s the perfect guy to laugh with and do all sorts of rated R activities with…as long as she can resist falling for his big heart…

 

The main couples first kiss…

 

Ha! I took a risk with this one – especially since it is in the first chapter and would make editors decide whether or not to buy the series. It’s…um…on the side of the road. Rafe stops to help Mollie change her tire, they flirt outrageously, and he goes for it.

Rafe moved to cage her against the car with his arms. They weren’t touching anywhere, but he hadn’t left room between for daylight to pass. “How good you are. Better yet, how bad you are.”

Then he waited. Didn’t move a muscle. Because it needed to be Mollie’s choice. Mostly because they were on the side of a semi-deserted highway. The sun—or Oregon’s pale version of it—was streaming down from overhead, and they were still on the blacktop. Rafe knew, though, that it could be seen as a potentially risky situation. He didn’t want her to feel pressured or scared. He just wanted to keep having fun with her.

But he’d read all the signals right and didn’t have to wait long.

“Stop flirting. Start doing,” she ordered. And then Mollie crooked her leg around his calf in an invitation about as subtle as a gun to the head.

Please share a few fun facts about this book…

 

  • A piece of the series arc is the town’s Cranberry Festival (lots of small town hoopla that you know my big city ex-mobsters just don’t understand), and it is real! I was thrilled to discover – accidentally – that this is a big deal in Bandon, OR.
  • It is not easy to come up with detailed information on protectees in the WITSEC program, even for someone with my advanced level of Googling. (Way to go, U.S. Marshals – your secrets are safe!) But for a fascinating read about how it started (it only began officially in 1971!) check out WITSEC: Inside the Federal Witness Protection Program, by the founder of the program. I’d hoped for inside details, but I’m not sad with the origin story instead.
  • If there was video of me, in my office chair, trying to figure out the exact logistics of sex in a hospital bed with all of its movable parts, I guarantee you would die laughing. I also guarantee that no such video exists. 
  • I gave my heroine a male BFF. Why? Because I went to junior high in a school that was all boys until the year I joined. The ratio was 45 boys to 6 girls that first year (and it didn’t increase much over the next two) and I discovered just how awesome it is to hang with guys – no flirting, just friendships. Men are terrific! 

 

Thank you very much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to take part in this interview.

 

 

USA Today bestselling author Christi Barth launches a sexy new series about three bad-boy brothers in Witness Protection who are about to learn that going good is harder than they thought…

 

Doctor Mollie Vickers loves the tight-knit community of her tiny Oregon town. But she’s not a fan of the limited dating options. Sleep with a guy who tried to copy off her in junior high? Pass. Mollie’s sex life is flatlining… until a deliciously handsome man she’s never seen before stops to help her fix a flat tire.

 

As an ex-mobster, Rafe Maguire’s no saint. But he’s trying to turn over a new leaf. Although he probably shouldn’t kiss the hot doctor on the side of the highway. Or suggest a no-strings fling with a woman he has no business pursuing. Rafe’s life is too complicated for love—his new WITSEC-provided identity doesn’t fit him at all and there’s a U.S. Marshal watching his every move. He can’t tell Mollie the truth… but their chemistry is scorching and being good doesn’t mean he can’t be a little bad.

 

Mollie can’t resist the guy who looks rough, talks tough, and is loyal to the bone. But it’s obvious Rafe is keeping secrets. When the truth comes out, Mollie must decide if she could ever love an ex-mobster… or if this bad boy has truly gone good.

“You’re chock-full of good ideas this morning. How do you feel about skinny dipping?”

 

Like she’d be willing to try any dangerous and decadent thing Rafe Maguire suggested.

Twice

 

USA TODAY bestselling author Christi Barth earned a Masters degree in vocal performance and embarked upon a career on the stage. A love of romance then drew her to wedding planning. Ultimately she succumbed to her lifelong love of books and now writes award-winning contemporary romance, including the Naked Men and Aisle Bound series. 

 

Christi can always be found either whipping up gourmet meals (for fun, honest!) or with her nose in a book. She lives in Maryland with the best husband in the world.

#16 Follow Friday with book bloggers: OBSESSION WITH WORDS
 
Meet Donna, a book lover from Alaska who warms herself up with reading and knitting. 
 
Visit Donna's blog and follow her book reviews on BookLikes: http://donnawannaread.booklikes.com/
 
1. When have you read your first book? Was it a book love at very first sight?
 
This is a tough question for me to answer and an emotional subject. I was raised in a very strict religious home. I was not allowed to have regular books. I had the bible, a dictionary, a set of encyclopedias and a set of bible stories. I was not allowed to go to the library either, ever, for my entire childhood. A few times when a friend gave me a book they thought I would like my parents took the books away before I could read them. I went to this same school until I was 18 when I refused to go anymore. I left home and got my diploma through correspondence. At that point, the first REAL book I read was a book a found in a waiting room. It was V by A.C. Crispin and I still have it. I wasn't allowed to watch much TV either and we certainly never had cable so this was totally new to me.  I devoured it.  When I met my husband he had the same book as well as many others and it was instant love. My husband and I both love to read.
 
 
2. What made you start writing about books/book blogging?
 
I met a friend through penpalling and this one friend, Brenna, (http://brennam.booklikes.com/) had a booklikes blog.  I fell in love with it right away and started my booklikes blog in May of this year.  
 
3. Did blogging have an impact on your reading life?
 
I´ve had blogs before but never posted regularly or had any real followers.  I never thought about blogging about books though.  Once I started and joined some of the games I started having a lot more fun reading. I really enjoy sharing the books I´ve read with other people that also love books.  I especially love reading other blogs and learning about new books.  My new years goal for this year was to cut down on books because I don´t have enough bookshelves to hold them all.  After joining Booklikes and chatting with other bloggers I realized that was a dumb goal.  Why should I cut down on something I love so much?  My husband is going to build some shelves for me so I don´t have to worry about it.
 
 
4. You like to craft. What’s you favorite technique? Do you read when knitting? 
 
I mostly crochet.  My sister taught me when I was 6 and it is pretty much second nature to me.  I also knit, although it is more of a challenge to me, but I really enjoy learning new techniques online and making blankets for charities like Project Linus or for the local homeless shelter and women´s shelter.  I love to listen to audiobooks while crocheting or knitting.  Audiobooks bring the characters to life while allowing me to look at what I´m doing.  I have also found a new craft recently called diamond painting and I also love to work on that while listening to audiobooks.
 
5. What are you reading right now?
 
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke (recommended by one of my sons)
 
Inkheart - Cornelia Funke,Anthea Bell 
 
6. What’s you favorite genre? Why is it special? 
 
I love mysteries and crime novels. I especially like books that involve a mystery that happened in the part and they go back to talk to people from that time to try to figure out what happened. There is so much evil in the world and I like reading books about clever people who can figure out whodunit, catch them and lock them up.  I don´t like books where the evil is not stopped.
 
7. You live on Alaska. Can you recommend Alaskan writers?
 
Oh yes, Sue Henry!  I met her once here in Fairbanks, Alaska and chatted with her for a while.  She is a great person that loves what she does.  
 
8. A paper book or an e-book?
 
Paper.  I do have a kindle but there is just something special about the smell and feel of a real book.  I especially like older books.  Kindles just smell like plastic and never come with odd little mementos tucked inside like pressed 4 leaf clovers, old movie tickets or other interesting things that were used as bookmarks.
 
9. Three titles to warm oneself up in winter?
 
Well, I think exciting books are the ones that warm me up.  So here are 3 I liked.
 
Raven Black - Ann CleevesThe Looking-Glass Portrait - Linda Hilton
 
10. How did reading change your life?
 
Around 2009 I started having a lot of pain and fatigue and eventually had to quit my job as a CNA/Endoscopy tech.  After a long time and a lot of tests I was told I have Fibromyalgia and Psoriatic Arthritis.  I live with constant pain, especially in my joints.  At first I went into a long, deep depression because I missed my job and having a sense of purpose.  I felt like I´d lost my identity.  As I was trying to find something I could do to help get my mind off of the pain I was in I started to read.  At first I was having a really hard time focusing but one of the meds they put me on helped with that.  Once that happened I would get lost in a book and for that time I felt better.  Reading is my escape and my book friends I´ve made are my life savers.  
 
11. Which books are you most excited recommending to your followers this fall/winter season? 
 
I am currently really psyched about Ann Cleeves´ Shetland Island series. Some people have seen the TV series but I haven´t met anyone who has read the books. Her books make me want to go there myself.  I´ve also been liking a series by Paul Doiron (sound like Dworin).  I recently read Massacre Pond and really liked it.  This series in set in the wilderness of Maine and follows a game warden as he solves crimes.  Reading the descriptive scenes I am reminded of the Alaskan wilderness and I can just imagine being right there with him.
 
Massacre Pond - Paul Doiron 
 
12. What’s your favorite book related quote?
Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
-- Groucho Marx
 
 
13. If you could meet one literary character, who would it be? 
 
Oh gosh, that is a really hard question.  I´ll say Lydia from Debbie Macomber´s Shop on Blossom Street.  I think we could be good friends.  We both have been through a lot with health problems and she is also a knitter.  
 
14. Shelfie time! Please share your home library photos :)
This is one of my shelves crammed into my entry way.  I have another shorter shelf in my living room and I also have stacked wooden crates on the shelf in the top of our coat closet and filled those with hard backs.  We also have shelves in the garage full of books and books in each bedroom.  
 
 
Thank you!

Mollie Jo Joseph, a new romance writer, shares her story [Interview and Giveaway]

 

If you're a fan of romantic stories with some nice twist and turns, and emotional tension, meet Mollie Jo Joseph -  a new romance writer who made her dream come true with publishing her first novel Accepting the Unexpected. Mollie agreed to answer several questions about her writing path and her experiences as a self-published author. You can also win Mollie's romance, click here to enter the Accepting the Unexpected giveaway, we have 3 copies for You!

Enjoy!  

*

 

What are you reading right now, Mollie?

 

Jane Austin’s Emma, in research for my next book !!

 

I have to ask. Is Mollie Jo Joseph your real name or a pen name? If it’s the latter, why have you decided to use an alter ago name for your writing career?

 

No, Mollie Jo Joseph is my pen name. I chose it because I never thought my own name (Joanne Hull) has ever had much of a “ring” to it. So I choose Mollie who is my niece and Joseph is my granddad and unfortunately I never got chance to meet either of them so I believe it is a nice tribute to them, Jo is me!!

 

Your first romance book Accepting the Unexpected is out. Congratulations! Can you tell us more about your book and how the idea was born?

 

It took me to get the age of 26 to realize that the stories in my head are actually what I have created, and I chose to start with this one because it strangely started to reflect events that happened in my own life. So in short it took for my first love to leave me for another woman to start the journey.

 

The book is a mix of real life issues I have been through such as heartache and depression, and comic fiction. I wanted to deliver a funny romcom with the real life struggles that many of us have to face. I hope this is what makes my book special, as I can assure all future readers that this book is in no way depressing, it has all the twist and turns that chick lit should have.

 

E-book giveaway!

October 7 - October 29

 

 

It’s based around a hair and fashion magazine named “sleek” set in Cornwall England that than travels over to New York City. It has the classic love triangle with some unexpected twists and supporting characters that are still very important to the plot. I really hope people can relate to Leila my main character but be captivated by a handsome actor/model named Blake and the mysterious ex football star Richard, throw in the drama with the ex! and some funny but also sad moments along the way.

       

On your Twitter we’ve spotted the mind map for building new book characters. Can you tell more about your writing process?

 

Well book two is very different to Accepting the unexpected as half of the cast where based on real people so I didn’t have to think too deeply into the characters as I know them personally. But with book two (Still no title) its fiction based in a completely different era in time the start of the 20th century. So I decided to mind map my characters and how they are all linked in an old school well to help introduce them into the story. I’ve had to tackled this one very differently as I need to brush up on my history facts!

 

New book characters mind map 

 

 

You describe yourself as a New Indie Author. What does it mean to be an Indie Author for you?

 

I’m very new to this, my day job is a hairdresser. I knew very little on how to write and format a book. I am a complete amateur really, but I was lucky that I got introduced to some fellow “indie authors”, Independent authors along the way, that helped guide me on how to get my book into the world as I pretty much done the whole thing myself. I had no beta readers, proof readers, I roped a few friends in along the way but it wasn’t the right kind of help. I’ve learned a lot in this process that will help book two be even better.

 

Self-publishing is a real trend now, a lot of authors, readers and bloggers have decided to follow the self-pub path. How did your self-publishing process look like? Would you recommend it for other aspiring writers?

 

Of course, I hoped that I could somehow land a literary agent that could find me a publisher and have hard back published versions of my book (I still do) but lots of great writers are out there doing the same thing. I find it to be a tough market for shiny new authors such as myself. So the help I got was from writers who have self published so I took a shot in the dark really. But it’s been the quickest way to get my work out into the world.

 

Could you tell our readers which authors inspire you?

 

Candice Bushnell and Helen Fielding where massive inspirations for my book, I'd say Accepting the Unexpected is a mixture of Sex and the city and Bridget Jones diary. I loved the characters they created. E L James is another, not that my book is any type of Fifty shades. But she unleashed a market of readers who I feel would also enjoy my work so I commend her for that.

 

Sex and the City - Candace BushnellBridget Jones's Diary - Helen FieldingFifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James 

 

 

Jane Austin is my new favorite author. I’m really enjoying her work at the moment as I do like to be taken to another era in time. I love to escape so J.K Rowling is my hero! She is a freak of nature to have that world of Harry Potter in her imagination is just truly amazing. I would love nothing more than just even a tenth of her imagination. I also enjoy Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, again it’s another world and they are huge inspirations for book three!! As I have a fantasy adventure in my head that I have wrote some of but is not fully realized yet so watch this space!

 

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPréThe Fellowship of the Ring - J.R.R. TolkienThe Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien

 

 

 

What are you reading when not writing? Could you please recommend some of your top reads?

 

Recently I’ve read a few of a fellow indie authors work Cassandra P Lewis she writes some great suspense romance and her most recent book “Home” is one I'd highly recommend. Also “The Law Of Attraction” by Roxie Copper is another, it’s her first novel about the world of getting into law with some really great twists and turns. I loved it! So please check out these authors they are talented ladies.

 

Home: A Country Romance - Cassandra P. LewisThe Law of Attraction: the perfect feel good read to curl up with for Autumn 2017 - Roxie Cooper

 

We’re really curious of writers’ writing habits :) Where do you write? Our readers would love to see some photos of your writing space.

 

Well, I wrote Accepting the Unexpected on an old net book that decided to crash so thank goodness for Google docs! But I do now have a computer set up in my living room, I need to have peace and quiet to write and a good few hours to spare which I wish I had more of that’s why it took my first book four years to write.

 

Mollie Jo Joseph's writing spot

 

From your point of view: is it easy to become a writer nowadays?

 

No I believe it’s extremely hard. There are just so many talented writers out there and we would all like our time in the spot light. But please don’t let that put off any new writer, if you want anything in life bad enough you can make it happen. I’m so proud of myself that though all the tough times I stuck at it and made it happen. Its truly liberating. But there is no greater reward than putting your story out into the world and have it so greatly received. It’s what makes it so worthwhile!

 

Thank you, Joanne. And good luck with your upcoming titles!

 

Don't miss the e-book giveaway (3 copies)!

October 7 - October 29
