Mae Clair Presents: Lauren Marie and One Touch at Cob’s Bar and Grill

Hello, friends. I’d like to introduce you to a new author today. Lauren Marie is originally from Boulder Colorado and grew up in Las Vegas Nevada where her father taught business and finance at the university. She has a new release, and has dropped by today to share the details. Please say hello! 

Lauren, tell us a bit about yourself and how long you’ve been writing.

When I lived in Las Vegas, there was a girl who lived across the street who was about four years older than me. When I was eleven or twelve years old, she was in high school and writing short stories for an English class. She wrote the greatest scary story about an evil black cat and I thought how cool is that?  I started writing down my own stories around that time. I’ve kept a notebook with me ever since.

Isn’t it amazing how ideas can strike you at any point of the day? Do you have a favorite place and/or time to write?

My best time to write is during the daytime hours and into the evening. I’m not a morning person and find it hard to function before I’ve had half a pot of coffee, at least. I’ve also been known to get an idea at two in the morning and found out if I don’t write it down immediately the idea will be gone by morning. As I wrote, I keep a notebook with me all the time and will write if I’m waiting at the doctor or dentist, or I’m meeting someone at a restaurant or movie theater and they haven’t shown up yet. I’ve made notes on the back of old envelopes or slips of paper from my purse. Really the only time I can’t think straight is first thing in the morning.

LOL! I hate early morning, but once I get into the shower, I’m much more of a lark than night owl. When it comes to plotter vs panster which are you?

I do outline a story and I’d say on some of my stories I’m about fifty-fifty with the original outline. Sometimes, though, the only thing that matches the outline is the name of the characters. The original outline for Love’s Touch – Then and Now – took place in Omaha Nebraska. The hero was an orthopedic surgeon from Ireland and my heroines’ father was a surgeon at the Univ. of Nebraska, Lincoln Medical Center. In the book, when it was released, the hero is an auto-mechanic and teacher in Everett, the father is a stock broker and the story moved to Western Washington. I originally started that story in the 1980s; as I changed so did some of the elements in the book. However, the basic reincarnation story stayed the same.

Those are definitely some interesting changes! What attracts you most to your chosen genre?

For many years, I wanted to write the ultimate thriller-suspense story. I had one that developed a mystery around the flesh eating bacteria’s, and another about the test dogs at the Hanford nuclear reservation in Eastern Washington. Then there were the senior citizens playing Bridge who were going to take over the world from Black Diamond, Washington. It wasn’t until about 2008, and after I’d read a couple of books by Gena Showalter and Karen Moning, that I thought how much fun it would be to write romance w/ ghosts, witches and paranormal. Once I started the first story I was bitten to the max and haven’t looked back since. Although, I still think I could do the Hanford dogs or the Soap Lady ghost from Lake Crescent in a paranormal romance somehow, but I’m not going there just yet.

Are you a draft writer or do you polish as you go?

I usually write a story out by long-hand first. That way I don’t have to mess with punctuation and grammar to much. I then start putting it into the computer and edit as I go. That’s all just to get the basic idea down. After it’s in the computer I start adding and subtracting, proofreading and shifting things around. I like to call it the Paragraph Shuffle, a basic two-step. Eventually, I’ve read through it so many times that I need to get away from it and give it to my reader who is great at finding holes and typo’s that I missed. I do put in a lot of time with a story, but all of the above is the fun part for me.

Please tell us about your new/upcoming release.

I just had a short story released last week. It’s title is One Touch at Cob’s Bar and Grill and it’s the third short story of the Ranch Series, put out by Books To Go, Now. I worked with four other authors, Casey Dawes, Amber Daulton, Julie Kavanagh and Dawn Luedecke. My story takes place in Willow Creek, Montana at Cob’s Bar and Grill. My heroine Anna Sheets has been running from her philandering husband for two years. The husband hired a private investigator, Sam Crawford, to find her and bring her back to Boise, Idaho. Sam’s followed Anna from place to place and wants her for his own. When he catches up with her in Willow Creek it’s not to take her back to her husband, but to deliver divorce papers. Will Anna accept Sam or run again?

One Touch

This fall my first venture with contemporary romance will come out. It’s the first of the Canon City Series – Love’s Embers. The hero and heroine, Charlie and Lark, first met when they were eight years old and became best friends. When they were fifteen years old a terrible tragedy tears Charlie from his best friend. The story takes place in present day. It’s thirteen years later and Charlie finally comes home. He finds Lark very angry at him and as much as he tries to smooth things over with her it only gets worse. Lark has a secret. Six months earlier a terrible thing happened to her and her anger has affected the way she treats friends and family around her. Will Charlie and Lark be able to forgive the past and rebuild the embers into flame?

Which character did you enjoy writing the most and why?

I have to say Charlie Stone from Love’s Embers. I know my characters aren’t real people, but when I start to cry because of the characters back story that I made up, it gives them a special place in my heart. Sentimental much? Yes. Demented, you ask? Probably. I do cry over characters.

I’ve been known to get teary-eyed a time or too as well. How did you choose your setting and was there research involved?

I’m originally from Colorado. My family moved from there when I was about a year old. I’ve only ever been back once since then and did a lot of research just to find the area I wanted to place the story. I bought maps of the state, geographical and the highways. When I found out that the tallest foot bridge in the United States was just outside of Canon City I decided it was the perfect place for the story, that and rafting on the Arkansas River. I’ve always had a romantic feel about Colorado.

When you’re not writing what do you enjoy doing?

I’m a TV-aholic and a re-watcher. I have certain DVD’s that I love to re-watch and sometimes check out stuff from the library. I also like to work outside in my small yard. Nothing helps my writing process more than pulling weeds. I have my own ghost hunting crew and we periodically get together for some interesting hunts.

You’re braver than I am! I love reading paranormal, but would never be brave enough to go on a ghost hunt. Do you have a guilty pleasure?

I’m an ice cream fiend and actually love Brussel sprouts.

Awesome! I love Brussel sprouts too. Actually more than ice cream. 🙂 What is your ideal romantic date?

Candle light, soft music, cool breeze off the ocean or in a mountain valley. Holding hands and walking on the beach, or holding hands at the movies.

Each one sounds wonderful. Name a book that had a profound effect on you.

It’s actually the Fever series by Karen Moning. It’s the only time, ever, I’ve actually fallen in absolute attraction for a character. I even named one of my cats Jericho. It also gave me the boost I needed when I worked on The Men of Haller Lake Trilogy. I figured if she could do it with Unseelie and Seelie, I could do it with Lake Guardians.

Do you have any pets?

I have four cats – Agamemnon, Tazmania, Jericho and Jasper and they are the coolest pets ever. I’ve nicknamed them the Gang of Four. In the Haller Lake Trilogy, I have a baby-shape-shifter, Otter, who shifts into a black cat so he can get out of his crib and sneak around. His cat character is based on my four kits.

How cute. What is your dream vacation?

Scotland on the Scottish Haunted Castle tour. I’d love to see Edinborough, Inverness, Aberdeen – Duncan and Connor McLeod live.

Favorite type of music?

I have eclectic tastes, I love classic rock, kick ass fiddle players, classical, Irish folk, blue grass and zydeco, some jazz and easy listening.

I love a good fiddle player and Irish folk! It was great to have you as my guest today, Lauren, and I wish you much success with your releases!

Mae Clair Presents: Tammy Tate and The Spirit Path #timetravel #romance

I’m delighted to welcome a new author today. Tammy Tate has just released her debut novel, THE SPIRIT PATH, a time-travel romance. If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know I tend to get hyper-jazzed over time travel novels. I absolutely LOVE the cover of this one. Stunning and gorgeous doesn’t begin to cover it. Be prepared to drool, but first let’s meet Tammy! 

Tammy, you’ve got an extremely cool bio and clearly have a diverse background—from Police Dispatcher, to Powder Puff racing and driving an 18-wheeler, you’ve no doubt got a plethora of ideas to use in novels. But let’s talk about your writing background. What initially got you penning stories and how long have you been at it? 

My love for writing actually started in high school with a story about a girl that ran away from home and it was clearly a ‘why you shouldn’t run away from home’ masterpiece! She stumbled across every dangerous situation you could imagine. My teacher at the time was so impressed he wanted to share it with an influential acquaintance. The problem was, I never finished it. For some reason as a senior I thought about football rallies, prom and graduation first. Go figure…

LOL! I remember being a bit “distracted” myself in high school. What attracts you most to your chosen genre?

I’m a romantic at heart. But I don’t stop there! I like to toss in a dash of humor and sprinkle it with action. I make my characters work for their roles in my books and the fun part is watching them spring to life right before my eyes. The hard part is getting it down fast enough as it pours out onto the keyboard. That’s when they make me work equally as hard to keep pace with them.

Book cover for The Spirit Path by Tammy Tate showing a couple in silhouette with a horse in the foregroundCharacters are definitely a demanding sort. Much like cats and women. 😉  Without giving too much away, please share a bit about your favorite scene from THE SPIRIT PATH.

One of my favorite scenes has to be when Nicole and Flaming Arrow camp beside a lake with a beautiful waterfall and she removes her long sleeve shirt, exposing her cami. In modern day, it’s considered appropriate attire. But in 1812… it’s a brazen choice. She doesn’t realize the impact until she looks up to find him staring as though she just stripped completely naked. Her reaction is priceless…

I like the sound of that set-up! THE SPIRIT PATH is on my TBR list and I look forward to discovering more about it. Right now I’d like you to share a single sentence – – yes, only one! – – of dialogue or description you love.

His gaze latched onto the thin straps at her shoulders, down to the slight hint of cleavage of her well-rounded breasts, and then roamed lower to the bare skin just above her Wranglers.

And I wonder what Flaming Arrow’s reaction is going to be in THAT scene 😉 This sounds like a fun and sexy read, Tammy. When you’re not writing what do you do to unwind?

That’s easy, I’m riding on the back of our Honda Goldwing with my husband on the front. We pick a direction and ride till noon, eat lunch and ride back. The world looks so much different on a motorcycle compared to viewing it from a car window. You see it, smell it… taste it in a whole new light.

I have a very close friend who loves motorcycle riding. She and her husband are both avid bike riders. I remember riding with my husband when we were younger and always enjoyed the experience, especially in the evening on back roads. You could feel the change in the air temperature when passing streams or dense woods, and the smells . . . just so lush and green.  

I’ll move onto pets now, because pets and writers naturally go together like peas in a pod. If you have pets, tell us about them and whether or not they shadow your writing time and space.

My heroine has a palomino horse and a rottweiller just like the palomino horse and rottweiller I owned when I lived in the country. I actually wrote a much smaller version of The Spirit Path during that time in my life for a journalism/short story class I was taking. The version you’re seeing today is an expanded piece of work. It’s also part one of a three part series. I’m excited to say my contract is for the series so the other two will follow.

That’s fantastic, Tammy! And palominos are just beautiful.  From the time I was a little girl, we had a saying in my family whenever anyone blew out the candles on a birthday cake:  “Wish for a pony!” Even today, we still say that. I think everyone wants a pony when they’re little. How wonderful that you had a horse—and a dog! I did have a few of those, LOL. 

What is your: 

Favorite season:  Summer

Favorite type of music:  Country

Favorite color: Pink

Favorite animal: Horse

Sunset picnic or night on the town: Sunset picnic

I would take a sunset picnic too. And my sister would love you. Her favorite color is pink and she’s a summer girl. 🙂  

Tammy, thanks for being my guest today. It was wonderful to have you visit and I wish you much success with THE SPIRIT PATH. I’m looking forward to reading it!

Author Tammy TateAUTHOR BIO:
Tammy Tate was born and raised in Hollywood, Florida, lived in Las Vegas for 7 years and Texas for 18 with her husband of 34 years. Her secret to a long marriage?

It’s easy when you marry your best friend. When she’s not writing and breathing life into her characters, she enjoys reading, motorcycles and thinking up ideas for her next book. Among her favorite movies are romance, science fiction, fantasy, comedy and thrillers. Before writing, she was an Executive Secretary, a Computer Consultant/Technician, and a Communications Officer (Police Dispatcher).

She doesn’t mind a challenge which has allowed her to race a late-model in a women’s powder puff race, run barrels and poles in a play-day rodeo and drive an 18-wheeler. Somewhere in between, she and her husband raised 3 wonderful children.  

BLURB FOR THE SPIRIT PATH:
Nicole goes horseback riding, not knowing that the events of the day would forever change her life.

After she falls off her horse and hits her head she wakes up to unfamiliar surroundings only to find she has traveled back in time to the year 1812.

She swung into the saddle, took a deep breath and then mustered the strength to ask him a question that she had been putting off.

“What year is it?” She exhaled slowly, preparing herself for his response knowing that when she woke up this morning it was 1997.

Flaming Arrow started to ride off, and then turned his horse to face her. “It is 1812”

Mae Clair’s Pen Pal: Meet Author Amber Daulton with Lightning over Bennett Ranch

An ink quill with feather penIt’s Thursday, and that means it’s time for another Pen Pal visit. Today’s guest is Amber Daulton with LIGHTNING OVER BENNETT RANCH. 

Before we get started don’t forget I’m hanging out with Lorraine Paton today with FIVE FUN FACTS about ECLIPSE LAKE. And the uber supportive Kitt Crescendo is giving Eclipse Lake  the spotlight treatment too!

Now it’s time to meet a lovely new Pen Pal!

Amber, are you a draft writer or someone who invests a lot of time editing and polishing as you write? Why does your method work best for you? 

I edit and polish as I write. If I don’t, I usually become confused and frustrated as to where the story is going. I tend to get a lot of ideas as I write and those ideas usually make more sense than what I originally plotted. I’m also a stickler for details. A scene has to be almost perfect before I move on.

Your method sounds much like mine. It makes the writing process longer, but editing is usually a breeze. My absolute favorite part of starting a new novel is coming up with character names. What is yours and how do you go about it?

Deciding on character names is actually my least favorite part of starting a new novel. The name has to fit with the character I see in my mind perfectly or I can’t use it. I’m very picky (especially with the heroine and hero) and I sometimes spend hours, if not days, just scouring through baby name books and websites for the best names.

What I love most is creating a new world or researching a real town and then twisting it enough to fictionalize it. Research, in my opinion, is more fun than writing at times. I love to learn about new places, cultures and people.  Although I’d rather travel to do hands-on research, in-depth reading is second best.

I agree with you on that. I’ve taken a trip to a specific town a few states away specifically for research. I’m using the location as the setting of an upcoming novel. Of course it’s not always possible to visit the locales we choose to use, so online research and reading is a Godsend! Which do you find easier to write— description or dialogue? 

Both are easy for me. Dialogue is more fun to write, however, because I love drama and emotion-based scenes. I love to put my characters through the ringer! When I find myself tearing up as I write, I know I’m on a roll. I feel more creative, though, when I write description because I love creating new worlds and scenery. I tend to go overboard with detail sometimes and it hurts to cut back and delete as I edit.

When I find myself balking over cutting something I love, I remember Stephen King’s quote “sometimes you have to kill your babies.” But it does hurt, doesn’t it?  And I love emotion-based scenes. Your style sounds wonderful!  

Which brings me to LIGHTNING OVER BENNETT RANCH. Can you share a few details?

Lightning over Bennett Ranch is book 2 of the Montana Ranch Collection published on June 9th, 2014 by Books to Go Now.  There are five individual novellas in the collection, all written by different authors, and are set in the small town of Willow Creek, Montana. Each story intertwines and shares characters from the other books to create a widespread world within a loving, close-knit community.

Lightning over Bennett Ranch

What a great concept. And, strange as it may seem, Montana has always been on my list of places to visit. So much history there! Switching things up a bit, as a reader, name a book that had a a profound effect on you.

I read my first romance books, ‘True Blue’ by Ingrid Weaver, when I was 12. It’s about an ex-convict hero and a schoolteacher heroine. After reading this book, I decided I wanted to write my own stories about two people finding adventure and falling in love. And so I did. I finished my first novel within six months and I’ve revised that book several times over the years (it’s currently not published).

I credit ‘True Blue’ with opening the door into modern romantic literature for me. Without it, I may not be writing today.

So you wrote your first novel at twelve? That’s fantastic—and equally fantastic that a single novel opened the door to a whole new world for you. When you’re creating worlds and characters, do you have pets who shadow your writing space? 

I have five cats and they always disrupt my writing time. They either lay on my lap (which I don’t mind until they pin one of my hands under their tummy), wrestle with and hiss at one another or meow for attention. I love them but they certainly are a handful!

LOL! I ADORE cats, but five definitely sounds like a handful. I can just imagine them camped out with you in your office, demanding attention as only felines can. And now for a few quick questions. What is your: 

Favorite season: Autumn

Favorite color: Purple

Favorite type of music: Hard Rock

Favorite ice cream flavor: Butter Pecan

Casual or dressy: Dressy

I think you’re the first person I’ve interviewed who answered “dressy” to the last question. YAY!  I do enjoy being casual, but I love dressing up, so it’s nice to meet a kindred soul. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting with me today, Amber. I wish you much success with LIGHTNING OVER BENNETT RANCH.

Amber  (68)About Amber:
Writing is the fruit to happiness.

Amber Daulton lives her life by that one belief even though she normally isn’t so Zen.

Author of Forever Winter, A Hero’s Heart and Lightning over Bennett Ranch, she published her first book in 2012 and plans to publish countless more in the future. She lives in the beautiful foothills of North Carolina with her punk-rocker husband and their five crazy kitties. Writing takes up most of her time, aside from her day job in the retail industry. As a fan of contemporary, paranormal and historical novels alike, she can’t get enough of feisty heroines and alpha heroes. Her mind is a wonderland of romance and adventure, laughter and awesome ways of kicking a guy when he’s down. She probably wouldn’t be too sane without her computer and notebooks. After all, what’s a girl to do when there are people jabbering away in her head and it’s hard to shut them up? Write! Nothing else works.

Blurb for LIGHTNING OVER BENNETT RANCH:
Melody Bennett’s parents trampled on her teenage romance with a drifter ten years ago. He disappeared without a word of goodbyes on the night they had planned to run away together. Since then, she cast aside her foolish notions of happily ever after and worked hard alongside the hired help to care for the majestic horses on her family’s ranch. She refused to give love another chance and resigned to live her life alone.

Max Fortaine returned with a heart guarded by secrets and a sizable bank account that took blood, prayers and tears to fund. The cowboy disrupted Melody’s peaceful existence with stolen kisses and a promise for more. After a lifetime of running, mistakes and regrets, he vowed to reclaim the only woman he ever loved… if only her overprotective father didn’t stand in his way.

Today’s Pen Pal: Sharon Kleve with Love Crazed by Mae Clair

Stack of old letters with ink quill and feather penIt’s Pen Pal time, and my guest today is Sharon Kleve, a writer of paranormal and contemporary romance.  I hope you’ll take a few moments to get to know Sharon, as she shares her writing habits and latest release. 

Sharon, do you have a favorite place and/or time of day to write?

I have a designated office. I have candles, books, and a radio going when I write. I also have three big windows where I can watch the birds play. I love to write all the time. It doesn’t matter what time of day it is.

Your office sounds lovely. Especially those large windows that allow you to watch the birds at play. What attracts you most to your chosen genre?

The Happy-Ever-After. I read for years before I ever thought about writing and if there wasn’t a happy-ever-after I never read the author again. So I stuck to the romance genre.

A girl after my own heart. I’m addicted to HEA’s! 🙂 My favorite part of starting a new novel is coming up with character names. What is yours and how do you go about it?

I have to have the name of the book picked out first. The character names don’t matter until a little later. My husband helps me pick the book title.

Wow, that’s amazing. Titles are generally tough for me. Once in a while I luck out and have the title before I start writing, but usually I’m still scrambling for one when I type “the end.” What is your most current release?

Love Crazed is the fourth book in The Corny Myers Series.

Which character did you enjoy writing the most and why?

Corny Myers is similar to Stephanie Plum in Janet Evanovich’s series. But Corny can talk to animals.

Ooh, I like that idea. When you’re not writing (or reading) what do you do to unwind?

I cook. Cooking relaxes me. I love to bake bread, bagels, and sour dough. But a decadent pasta dinner is my favorite.

Now I know where to go when I’m hungry because I’m a horrible cook, LOL. Please share a few favorites:

Favorite season: Fall because of the colors it brings. WA has the most brilliant transition from summer to fall.

Favorite animal: Cat. I adore my cat Ardy. She rules the household. Everything revolves around Ardy’s schedule–food, water and snacks, and of course, play time.

Favorite social media platform: My blog is fun and easy to maintain. I think whatever an author chooses they need to maintain a regular presence for their readers.

Favorite author: Janet Evanovich. She’s what I started writing. Stephanie Plum made me laugh and want to continue reading her series.

Food you never grow tired of:  Bread. It’s a good thing I like to bake. I love every flavor, sour dough, rye, pumpernickel, and especially bagels.

Mountains or beach: Beach. I love the crashing waves and even the sand when it gets into every crevice of your body.

I love the beach too, although I’m not overly fond of the sand anywhere but on my feet. 🙂 And cats? Oh, I love cats! It sounds like Ardy is a typical phenomenal feline. Thanks so much for being a Pen Pal today, Sharon. I wish you much success and many sales with LOVE CRAZED. And BTW, pumpernickel and rye are my favorite types of bread. You have excellent taste! 🙂
