Hello Michelle, It was great to connect through our romance publisher, Beachwalk Press - where a wide range of quality ebooks in a variety of subgenres, all with ratings of "sensual" or "higher" heat levels, are offered.
You've recently entered the mystical world of ebooks and publishing and we're all eager to get to know a little bit more about you and your writing. Here are a few questions which will hopefully give your readers an insight into some of the things that matter to you.
Arabella: How did you find your agent or publisher and what are their good points?
Michelle: I went through a few rejections from other publishers so I took a year off to revise and edit my book before submitting again. I found Beachwalk Press listed as the publisher of an author I frequently read and decided to send them my book and voilà, here we are. This is my debut novel so as an author working for the first time with a publisher, I believe their best point is that they keep you in the loop all the time. This continuous communication is vital for me to feel comfortable with the whole process and I find Pamela very co-operative, encouraging and mindful of this fact.
Arabella: Currently, what is your most favourite T.V. programme, and why?
Michelle: Well, I’m not much of a T.V watcher, but one of my favorite series is Monk. I know it’s not at all recent, in fact, I think it first came out in 2002 but I love the concept of a genius detective struggling with OCD and yet being brave enough to face the world each day. It also has subtle comedy so it’s good for me when I need to relax and unwind.
Arabella: Who or what inspired you to write your latest release, Bound to Him.
Michelle: Bound to Him is my debut novella and I started writing it because I was very disheartened with the man-whores and cheaters who had begun to dominate the romance genre. I wanted to read a book with a hero who was completely devoted to his heroine and would never stray so I thought, instead of complaining and crying, why not write my own happily-ever-after?
Arabella: When writing a novel, how do you work? Are you a plotter or pantser?
Michelle: I would say I’m a little bit of both. I have an outline in my head about the general storyline of a romance and the major characteristics of the hero and heroine and then write down scenes as they come to me, sometimes even developing new scenes while I’m writing.
Arabella: If the person of your dreams, (husband/wife/partner/or superstar), were to take you out for the night, where would they take you and what would you do?
Michelle: I would love for a future husband to take me for a walk in the park, then just sit on the bench, holding hands. Oh, and if he brings a romance book in his Kindle from one of my favorite authors and reads it to me in his deep, rumbly voice, I might fall in love all over again.
Arabella: A slice of Chocolate Cake, a piece of Fruit, or Burger and Fries?
Michelle: A whole 2-pound chocolate cake, please!
Arabella: When writing a book or chapter, which is most important to you: plot, character, or setting?
Michelle: I think it is very important for me to justify my character’s personality so when I’m writing scenes, I always think about what my character would say or how he/she would react in a particular situation, then write accordingly.
Arabella: What about your future plans? Any books or series in the making?
Michelle: Bound to Him is the first book in a series called Alphamen in Suits. The other two books will be about the hero’s sister falling for the head-of-security and the heroine’s best friend chasing his personal assistant.
Thank you for joining me on Arabella's Blog and Chit-Chat, Michelle. I hope the man of your dreams and your happy-ever-after are found sometime soon.
Oh...and good luck with your debut contemporary erotic novel, Bound to Him. Keep the words flowing. Your readers are waiting for the next in the series.
All the best and happy-ever-after writing,
