The Best of RG2E Ereading Wishes — D. D. Scott, RG2E Founder

RG2E Reader2Author Interview with International Bestselling Author Talli Roland and One of Her Superfab Readers Glynis Smy

Happy Sunday, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

It’s time for another RG2E Reader2Author Interview…brought to us by the A-mazing Alicia Street!!!

Here’s the waaay fun scoop on Alicia:

In addition to being part of today’s Indie writers movement, we (she and her co-writing DH Roy Street) are traditionally published authors and recipients of a Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense.

We share backgrounds in the performing arts and spent many gypsy years living and working in the different neighborhoods of New York City and Philadelphia. Alicia as a dancer, choreographer and teacher; Roy in theater, visual arts and standup comedy.

Alicia is a chronic reader of every genre including the classics. She also loves old black-and-white movies, making organic soups from recipes she invents, working out and, of course, dancing. Roy’s into sweaty workouts, too, as well as watching boxing on HBO and eating Alicia’s organic soups. Our cat’s name is Wallace, an orange ten-pounder who’s crazy over pizza. He and Roy do slices every Friday night.

Take it away, Alicia…

*******************************

Today’s post is another entry in my series of Reader2Author Interviews, where authors mix it up with one of their readers.

Welcome Talli Roland, author of fun, romantic fiction and a member of the WG2E blog family.

Talli’s books are bestsellers on both sides of the Atlantic, with several chosen as top books of the year by industry review websites. Born and raised in Canada, she now lives in. Despite training as a journalist, Talli discovered she preferred making up her own stories—complete with happy endings!

Talli’s chosen reader is Glynis Smy.

Born in the UK, now living in a rural village, on Cyprus, Glynis is married with three adult children. When she is not cross-stitching, swimming or reading, she writes historical romance.

Alicia to Talli and Glynis: When did you first become an avid reader? As a child or an adult? What got you started?

Talli: I always loved reading, even from a young age. Every few weeks, my mum would take me to the local library, and I would come away with an armload of books. Those first few days after a library visit were a feast of reading – I loved curling up on the sofa or hiding away in my room and escaping to other worlds. Even now, there’s nothing as satisfying as a good read. Except maybe wine!

Glynis: I cannot remember ever not reading. From what I gather, I learned to read quite early. Enid Blyton fed my need for adventure. Later I adored Nancy Drew, and Little Women is still my favorite read.

Alicia: Does your family read?

Glynis: My DH doesn’t read books. My children all read, and my seven-month-old granddaughter already has a collection of books on her shelf.

Alicia: How often do you read? And where? Do you have a special time or place to read?

Talli: Nowadays, it’s mostly in bed before I go to sleep. There’s something very relaxing about it (as long as it’s not scary!), and reading helps me turn off my own frantic brain. On the weekends, I love lying across the bed in the sun and turning the pages of a good book.

Glynis: I read every day, and I’m fortunate that I can read whenever the mood takes me. I enjoy reading on the back porch, by the pool and in bed. I now have Kindle on my new phone, and while DH is in his hobby shops, I read.

Talli to Glynis: Do you read more ebooks than paperbacks now? Has technology changed your reading habits in any way?

Glynis: I love paperbacks, always will. The feel of them, the way they decorate a boring spot in the home, and the fact I am holding something a person created. It is like artwork on a canvas. I own a Kindle, and never thought I would enjoy reading from one, but I do. I love how it is easy to carry a large quantity of books around. No longer do I have to wait weeks for a book to arrive. I read more ebooks because my friends and unknown authors tend to be releasing them in this format first.

Alicia to Glynis: What genres are your favorites? Any you absolutely would never read?

Glynis: Historicals and historical romances, not the bodice rippers, but those with a trickle of history or down on their luck characters, are my favorites. I must confess I am not a sci-fi or vampire fan. I have read a few fantasy/Fae books, and enjoyed them, but Zombies are a no-no.

Alicia to Talli: Do you read across genres, or stick to mainly one? Which?

Talli: I read everything! I love travelogues – Peter Mayle is a favorite. What grips me is the story, so as long as the book has characters I care about and a plot that’s interesting, I really don’t care what genre it is. As a writer of light women’s fiction, I also read a lot of fun, entertaining novels to keep up to date with what other authors are doing.

Glynis: Have you ever considered writing a different genre?

Talli: At some stage, I would like to write more serious women’s fiction, with less of a comedic element. Right now, though, I’m very satisfied with the genre I’m writing.

Alicia: Do you have an author you currently read that inspires your writing?

Talli: I’m conscious of trying to have my own voice and I always strive for something a little different, so when I’m creating, I try not to read authors who might influence my work. On my downtime, though, I really enjoy reading Emily Giffin for her very real characters and Sophie Kinsella for her sense of fun.

Alicia: What about an author you read for pure pleasure?

Talli: I love love love Maeve Binchy’s novels. They’re so absorbing and you feel that instantly you’re in the world of the characters.

Alicia to Glynis: How did you discover the first Talli Roland book you read? How did it affect you?

Glynis: I stalked Talli for a period of time, and got to know the author and her bubbly character. Chick lit is not a genre I had read much of prior to her books. Her first title grabbed me and I just had to read. When the chance to receive a review copy of The Hating Game, came along, I took the opportunity to read. Talli hooked me. I am now a fan of certain Chick Lit authors. And most definitely a fan of Talli Roland. I can’t wait for her next novel.

Alicia: Which one of Talli’s characters is most compelling to you? Any that you don’t like?

Glynis: I enjoy all of her characters, but the one who sticks with me is Willow Watts from Watching Willow Watts. I loved her vulnerability but determined ways. Serenity in Build a Man made me smile. Her bumbling efforts struck home a little. Each of Talli’s characters has, well, character. So I enjoy them all. Gosh, I sound stalkerish now, but it is true. Even Silver Hatchett, in The Hating Game is supposed to be a nasty managing director, but how can you not love a woman who chomps on chipolata sausages in front of a weakling male?

Alicia to Talli: Is there a character you’ve created that is your personal favorite?

Talli: Definitely! I love Serenity, the main character in Build A Man and its sequel, Construct A Couple. As a transplant to London trying to find her way, her observations remind me of my own time attempting to adjust to the foreignness of my new home.

Alicia: Is there a particular character you get the most compliments or complaints about?

Talli: Um . . . yes. The main character in The Hating Game, Mattie Johns, is a love or hate character. She strides across the pages with a definite attitude, and she’s not instantly likeable by a long shot. I didn’t realize what intense reactions readers would have to her, though! I wanted to make her a strong character who could withstand the trials and tribulations of the reality game-show she agrees to go on. If she was too weak, she’d seem like a victim. And Mattie Johns is anything but!

Talli to Glynis: You read across a lot of genres, helping to support many authors. Why do you think some books have the X Factor while others fall flat?

Glynis: Ooh, I think it is when the writer forgets the reader. They become so engrossed with their vision, that they ramble. The ones that make me yawn are those books that have lost their minor characters along the way. Just as I start to relate to a minor character they disappear into nothing. Not recognizing a strong character is a weakness I have found with some writers. Often I want to yank the character out of the book and rewrite their life. I feel sorry for them being left to flounder in a nothingness.

Glynis: I would love to know where you draw your inspiration from. Your novels are so mixed, I wonder if you spend time people watching?

Talli: Yes, I spend a lot of time people-watching out my office window! It fronts onto a very busy central London road, and it’s fascinating seeing the different characters stroll up and down. I must admit, though, that the majority of my inspirations come from The Daily Mail. The articles in there are so outrageous — it’s a veritable fount of ideas!

Alicia to Glynis: What kind of heroine or hero do you usually like to read about? One that you will go back to again and again?

Glynis: I like a strong heroine. A female with a soft side, but strength of character enough not to be trampled upon. Not too Amazonian though. Jane Austen, Catherine Cookson, Norah Roberts and Barbara Erskine produced just the types that get me reading over and over.
Glynis to Talli: In photographs of yourself I note you change your hairstyle/color and clothing style at times. Is this triggered by the main character you are writing about at the time? Does it help you get into their skin, so to speak, or is it merely a fashion thing?

Talli: I get bored very easily, which is why writing novels is the perfect job for me! You can create any world you like and there’s always something to learn.
Alicia to Talli: What was the most satisfying response you’ve gotten from a reader? The most unusual?

Talli: I adore any and all reader emails, so it’s hard to say what the most satisfying is . . . although I did love one that said she’d read all my novels and had yet to find more than one typo (and she pointed it out, so I fixed it!). That meant a lot, because my editor and I work very hard to have professional, clean copy.

Alicia to Glynis: Is there something you’d like to say to most authors? Something you wish they’d understand better about readers?

Glynis: I think I would have to say, sometimes too much is…too much. Allow us to use our imagination. After all, we had brains enough to select your book to read, let us use them to create the imagery you offer us. Don’t spoon-feed us every little detail, it can become boring wading through too much airy prose.

Alicia to Talli: Have you ever had a reader’s feedback influence your work? Or your perspective?

Talli: I always keep my readers in mind when I’m writing, but I also have to stay true to the characters and the situation they’re in. Some readers have said that I tend to rush my endings, which is a personal preference; I don’t like long-winded mushiness. However, I do try to take that feedback into account and make the ending as satisfying as possible.

Glynis: What do you hope your readers achieve by reading one of your novels?

Talli: I’d like readers to be entertained and engaged, but also come away with a sense that there is a deeper message of empowerment.
Alicia to Glynis: What prompts you as a reader to contact an author?

Glynis: If their work has touched me in some way, or if their personality is approachable on the social networks. I did email one author once as I had noticed a typo on the front page of her website. I felt it let her down, and she didn’t deserve it. We are now friends on Facebook and communicate regularly.

Talli: What do you think is the best thing an author can do to get readers interested in their novel?

Glynis: I think some readers want to enjoy the author as well as the novel, so I would say share yourself around. Be approachable. Tweeting constantly with the link to your book without participating in a conversation is not polite, and could put readers off. It has certainly put me off a few times. Joining places such as Goodreads.com is another way. Giving away copies as prizes or for. Have a welcoming website or blog. Lastly, but by no means least, have an appealing cover and back page blurb. Make the reader want to follow the three R’s…Read, Review and Recommend.
Alicia to Glynis: What is the reason you continue to read Talli’s books?

Glynis: She entertains me, pure and simple. I can laugh, sigh and feel for each person she writes into her stories. I put her books down feeling satisfied, and I wait with eagerness for the next.

A roller coaster of a romance between a divorced dad and a dance teacher.

Ballet instructor Casey Richardson takes an immediate dislike to the brash, arrogant Drew Byrne when he pulls his nine-year-old son out of her “silly” dance class. Still, she cannot help noticing his smoking hot body and bedroom eyes.

A working class girl raised in the small fishing and farming community on Long Island’s rural North Fork, Casey knows all too well how easily a girl can get hurt by the notorious womanizing hunks that flourish on the South Fork in the Hamptons. Men like Drew Byrne.

The last thing she needs is for him to be the only one who can save her from losing her dance academy, the dream she has worked so hard to turn into a reality.

Remarrying is definitely off Drew’s list of things to do. As head of his Fortune 500 trucking company, he enjoys his wealth and has no problem keeping it a game with some of the world’s most beautiful women. So why should his son’s challenging, straight talking dance teacher get under his skin in a way no other female has?

Sure, Casey Richardson has luminous brown eyes and a lean, taut body that drives him nuts, but he’s seen plenty in his day with the supermodels he is used to dating. He tells himself it is because Casey is the only one who was able to bring his shy, uncommunicative son out of his shell. But even that isn’t it.

Bewildered, Drew decides he just might make use of those ridiculous psychic readings he won at North Cove’s Annual Fourth Of July Bazaar raffle. Little does he know the local psychic who donated the readings has taken off last minute for some trekking in Tibet —and Casey was swayed into substituting for her with phone readings to the anonymous winner.

Add in a stint on a hit TV dance-off series, a cozy local coffee shop, a narcissistic rock star and a protective big brother to make KISS ME, DANCER a sexy, heartfelt and fun read.

Amber Fox has been making too many mistakes lately and something’s got to give…

After accepting a job as an insurance investigator from her ex-fiancé, Brad Beckett, it turns out that Brad thinks they’ve still got unfinished business and the job description includes sexual favours that come with a price.

When fashion designer, Umberto Fandango, goes missing, Amber becomes embroiled in a complicated case. But Amber’s arch-enemy, Chief Inspector Skipper, is also investigating his disappearance, and it’s a race against time for Amber to solve the mystery before Skipper does and get her old job back.

HOOKED is a story of sex, greed, ambition, murder, revenge and assassination — and of a gifted doctor from a small town in Kentucky.

With a contemporary feel, the novel takes place in the mid-20th century when America was at the pinnacle of its power and prestige.  Set in New York and Washington, a remote fishing village on the Turkish Riviera, Sweden, Vienna, Cairo and aboard Lydia, the world’s most beautiful yacht, the story centers on Gavin Jenkins, the brilliant, charismatic Dr. FeelGood.

Dr. Jenkins’ miracle treatments give patients everything they want:  youth, beauty, radiant vitality and sexual potency.  No wonder he is worshiped by the celebrities who become his patients.  No wonder his influence runs from the private island of an enigmatic Turkish billionaire with a bloody secret to the crimson-draped bedroom of a depraved, Mid-eastern Prince;  from the private dressing rooms of world-famous artists to the heights of international society and the inner sanctums of the White House itself.

The touch of his hands and the plunge of his needle made every fantasy come true.  No wonder so many were HOOKED.

WARNING: HOOKED contains sexually explicit scenes. If you are offended by such material, please do not buy HOOKED.

With this debut launch of our brand new WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies, we’re treating you to a terrific, one-of-a-kind approach to the anthology concept.

You’ll get a variety of genres all packaged together, with a variety of story-lengths too, as a wonderful way to discover authors new to you!

Plus, each WG2E Anthology is based on a different theme.

Here’s what we mean by that…

In our WG2E Winter Wonderland Anthology, we’re treating you to stories that yes, have a Winter Wonderland element, BUT definitely not in the average way.

You’ll never think of Winter Wonderland in quite the same way. For example…:

  • “What’s goin’ on underneath all that snow?” for D. D. Scott’s A CUT ABOVE CRAZY
  • “More than people wear goose down parkas in Winter” for Tonya Kappes BEAD OF DOUBT
  • “There’s nothing like a sauna to thaw a cold spell” for Talli Roland’s MISTLETOE AND THE FIVE-YEAR ITCH
  • “An Ice Queen can be much more than a very cold spouse” for Tamara Ward’s JADE O’REILLY AND THE ICE QUEEN
  • “The flavors of Winter…as in Winter Green Mint, Anyone?” for Sibel Hodge’s THE S-WORD AND THE LADY GARDEN
  • “Not only reindeer dance in the snow…unicorns do too” for Alicia Street’s SNOW DANCE
  • “Breaking News: The All-Things Holidays Edition” for Lacy Maran & Kevin Michael’s NOTHING IS SACRED COMEDY’S GUIDE TO THE HOLIDAYS
  • “More than the Earth dies in Winter” for Patrice Fitzgerald’s TILL DEATH DO US PART
  • “There’s ice on the tracks, but not the kind you might think…” for Kathy Carmichael’s MAYHEM ON THE WINTERLAND EXPRESS
  • “Not everyone loves pumpkin pie” for T.M. Souder’s DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW

Happy Reading and Welcome to our WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies!

Book Description:

This six-book set includes…

BOOTSCOOTIN’ BLAHNIKS
Think Sex and The City meets Urban Cowboy
A Manhattan apparel designer, who’s also a country line dancing queen, has traded in her stiletto-clad clientele for (1) the frequent shoppers of a Music City tractor supply store and (2) a tomato-grown’, bootscootin’ cowboy, but she must accept that her best fit is on the dance floor moving to her own style and his lead.

STOMPIN’ ON STETSONS
Think Hell’s Kitchen mixed with Meet The Fockers
A Manhattan-raised, culinary-schooled pastry chef, teams up with her favorite cowboy, a Meat n’ Three diner owner, to cater the wedding of a Music City socialite, but to get the job done, they must handle the heat sizzling between them while rising above their ex-factors as her ex is the wedding planner from hell and his is the bride-to-be.

BUCKLES ME BABY
Think paparazzi-hell and Ponzi-scheme fall-out meet home-shopping and Babies “R” Us
A Manhattan-raised, marketing and promotions impresario and her Nashville TN homebuilder beau are forced to face overnight fame from their success on a home shopping channel, but can they handle big business with twins on the way, especially when they’re dodging paparazzi-hell on account of one of their parents’ Ponzi-scheming past?

THUG GUARD
Think The Rachel Zoe Project meets Bond, James Bond and a Madoff-style, Ponzi-scheming King.
Zoey Witherspoon is a Rachel Zoe-esque Hollywood Stylist to The Stars – who’s also a wanna-be Stephanie Plum. She’s teamed-up with her very own Bond, James Bond-style double agent who’s about to bring down a Madoff-type, Ponzi-scheming King. Oh…and along for the adventure…try The Bootscootin’ Books Mom Squad – now a blue-haired version of Charlie’s Angels – plus all the rest of your fave Bootscootin’ characters too!

LIP GLOCK
Think Will and Kate gone Bond, James Bond…and the blue-hair version of Charlie’s Angels too…Under the Tuscan Sun.
Buckle your seatbelts! Cozy Cash Mystery, super-hot, international crime-fighting couple Roman Bellesconi and Zoey Witherspoon – now very Will and Kate gone Bond, James Bond – once again team-up with The Bootscootin’ Books’ Mom Squad, now the blue-hair version of Charlie’s Angels, to recover billions of bunches of hedge fund cozy-cash…but this time, all Under the Tuscan Sun.
It’s a super-sonic speed, action-packin’ thrill-ride, full of pot-bellied pigs, hydrofoils, and gelato!

FLUID FULFILLMENT
The Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mysteries are a unique treat for fans of D. D.’s Bootscootin’ & Cozy Cash Mystery Books…a short story-sized peek into her collection of interconnected books.
For Fluid Fulfillment, think Victoria’s Secret meets Kill Bill.
Each Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mystery (short story) will feature at least one of The Mom Squad quirky-crazy, blue-haired Charlie’s Angels wanna-be’s!
You’ll get to meet their extended families plus learn the unique skill each Mom Squad Member has been trained-to by The Cozy Cash Mysteries’ Quarter Master R.
