Guest Blogger Jeannie Moon!

I am so excited to bring you this guest post … one because I love Jeannie Moon’s books and two because … well … she’ll explain it to you, LOL! So welcome guest author JEANNIE MOON! :snoopydance:

Moon headshotFROM JEANNIE: Carly is good at Dares…and I don’t just mean the heroes of her new books. After being part of an interview on my blog, she dared me to answer my own interview questions. (I guess they’re tough.) So to celebrate my new release, The Wedding Secret, I’m answering my own questions. Okay. *rubs hands together* Here goes.

Tell us about The Wedding Secret.

The Wedding Secret tells the story of Harper Poole, whom we met in The Temporary Wife, and Kevin Rossi, the older brother of Meg and Caroline from my first two books. Kevin is a pro baseball player, Harper is a hard-nosed executive and they have chemistry in spades.

I’m a sucker for swoon-worthy heroes and you are a pro at writing them. Why are your readers going to fall for Kevin? At first they may not. The truth is Kevin could drive you crazy. He’s a gorgeous pro athlete. He seems to know what he wants, but he makes a bunch of boneheaded moves that really makes you question whether or not he deserves our heroine after all. Kevin is all about the personal epiphany. Once he has that, he’s ready to sweep you off your feet.

There’s been a surge in athlete heroes on romance. What do you think prompted the interest?

Um, perfectly toned physical specimens that we can endow with any quality we want? Where do I sign up? Truthfully, I’ve always been a fan of the athlete in romance. They’re the modern day rogues and rakes.

The Forever Love Stories have a quick turn around time and you have to write the books fast.

How is it going? Um, very fast. I’m writing a book now that comes out in October. It was only sold in April, it took me a few weeks to flesh out and now I’m writing.   Deadlines are tight and it’s made harder by the fact that I have a full time job.

In your opinion, what’s the hardest part about writing romance? The easiest?

The hardest? Drafting. I don’t like it, I love my ideas and my characters, but actually getting the information down is tough. The easiest is revising. I love the process of polishing a book until it shines.

Do you have any quirky routines you go through before – during or after – you start writing?

My office has to be clean. If there’s clutter or it needs vacuuming, I can’t work.

The Wedding Secret CoverDo you have any advice for aspiring authors? Pearls of wisdom? Warnings?

The classic, don’t give up. The right break will find you. It took me twelve years to get my first contract. I had a number of close calls, but it took a long time.

What’s the best part of this job?

Hearing from readers that my books made them happy. The. Best. The other thing is the romance community. I’ve met so many wonderful writers who are now good friends.

Now we’re going to take a page from James Lipton who hosted Inside the Actor’s Studio. I need quick responses to the following hot seat questions:

Where do you write? Usually my office; sometimes the kitchen table.

Anything you have to have with you when you sit down to work? Coffee

Laptop or desktop? Both. Dropbox is my savior.

Favorite romance plot device? Secret baby and I love wallflower stories.

Least favorite romance plot device? No one in particular.

What’s the hardest part of the writing process? The first draft.

Favorite writing music? It depends on the book.

What trait in a man do you find most sexy? Kindness.

The least sexy? Lack of intelligence

You’re book is going to be made into a movie. Who play the lead roles?

This book. Hmmm. I had Henry Cavill in mind when I pictured Kevin, all square jawed and adorable. Harper has always been Chyler Leigh. She has the right combination of looks, sweetness and kick your ass attitude.

I’ll give away one digital copy of The Wedding Secret to a lucky poster. (domestic only, sorry)J

Jean­nie Moon has always been a roman­tic. When she’s not spin­ning tales of her own, Jean­nie works as a school librar­ian, thank­ful she has a job that allows her to immerse her­self in books and call it work. Mar­ried to her high school sweet­heart, Jean­nie has three kids, three lov­able dogs and a mis­chie­vous cat and resides on Long Island, NY. If she’s more than ten miles away from salt water for any longer than a week, she gets twitchy.  The Wedding Secret is the third book in her Forever Love Series from InterMix.

    • I’m trying to eat healthier, so I’ve been snacking on roasted chick peas or multigrain chips if I really need something salty. When I’m not eating healthy I go for chocolate or Lays potato chips. (MUST be Lays.) Plus, I always have coffee. Always.

    • That is such a hard question. The short answer is no, each book can stand on its own. However, I like reading series in order. It’s really up to you.

  9. Thank you for interviewing yourself. I love learning how a writer writes. Where do you like to read? I love my bedroom, I either read in my bed or on the couch I have in my bedroom. I signed up for your newsletter, I already ❤️’D you. Do you get interrupted while reading? I have two fur babies that hate it when I read to much, they either hit me or the book I am reading. If I am on my iPad they worm their way under it so I can’t see the screen. Love my fur babies. :snoopydance:

  13. Hi Jeannie,

    I hope you are doing well this afternoon. I love being introduced to new to me authors. And, reading about hot athletes is a chore but someone has to do it….kinda like writing about them I would think.

    I thank you for your time and sharing of yourself.


  14. Excited to read your series now that I know about it. The interview and guest blog sold me on trying them out, but if that hadn’t, the fact you took the time to reply to all the comments would have!

  15. It’s been one of those days for me. I had to create 2 tests & 2 reviews before I could look at my email.

    I loved the interview & what I’ve read about this book. I hope to get to know you better Jeannie. I signed up for your newsletters earlier when I was on facebook when I wasn’t suppose to be. Looking forward to reading this book.

  16. Henry Cavill, awesome choice for….well….for anything visible. :yourock:
    Chyler Leigh….no idea who that is. :scratch:
    I am curious, will you change your questions now?? LOL
    And I love Inside the Actors Studio. Best interviews anywhere.
    Even people I don’t like. ha

    • Chyler Leigh played Lexie Gray on Gray’s Anatomy.

      I’ll probably adjust the questions a bit. The thing is, while some stay the same, I try to customize certain questions to the guest. So, they’re always changing.
