Sally Clements - Back with a SNOWBOUND SUMMER

MBB welcomes Sally Clements.  She's back with another lovely story for us.  I always enjoy Sally's romances, they have such compulsive storylines and insightful writing.  I took the opportunity to ask her a few questions about her latest release and to feature SNOWBOUND SUMMER here. The review will be appearing soon here, so please look out for it.

Sally, does writing become easier as time goes by?  Or harder?
In one way, writing becomes easier, because having had a lot of practise, I make less grammatical mistakes. In another way, it is more difficult to come up with interesting ideas to write about!

Tell me how you got the inspiration for your latest book.
My latest book is book 3 of my Logan series - Nick Logan made a fleeting appearance in book one, and has been brewing in my mind for a long time. As Nick is a vet, I wanted to include an animal in the book, and I also wanted to write a story about a best friend's big sister, so …

Marie Laval, BACK with A SPELL IN PROVENCE

I adore Marie Laval's historical romances and find it very exciting that she's turned her hand to contemporary romance.  Rest assured, that just like her previous published works, this one will have an elegant French touch, as Marie is a Frenchwoman. I've taken the opportunity to ask her a couple of questions about her latest release, A SPELL IN PROVENCE.

Thank you very much for welcoming me on your blog today Maria to talk about my first contemporary romance  A SPELL IN PROVENCE which was recently published by Áccent Press.
What made you decide to write contemporary romance, Marie?  I'd always thought your forte  was historical... I love writing historical romance, but when I got the idea for a contemporary story whilst on a family holiday in the South of France, I just knew I had to write it. Provence is a wonderful setting for a novel. There are so many quaint hill-top villages and old farmhouses. The skies and the landscapes are b…

BOOK BLOGGER TURNS AUTHOR - VOICES OLD AND NEW - AN INDIREADS ANTHOLOGY

Today, I'm proud and happy to introduce a book of my own on MBB.  VOICES OLD AND NEW is an anthology of south Asian writing gathered and published by Indireads, a digital publishing company dedicated to south Asian fiction in English and moving it forward and bringing it to the widest possible audience.  Although not native to  this region, I've lived here in southern Asia for twenty years and it is a great honour to have my story included in this collection.  VOICES OLD AND NEW has a number of stories in four different genres - romance, crime, paranormal and drama.  My story, MEETING BY ARRANGEMENT, was the popular pick in the romance category of the Indireads short story competition in 2014.  My thanks are due to Naheed Hassan and Sabahat Muhammad at Indireads for their vision in bringing this project forward.  Many thanks also to my fellow writers - together, we've made an incredible book, with something for everyone to enjoy.  Congratulations to all involved in the pro…

Aditi Chopra's Mr. Imperfect Series - A Perfect Three-In-One

MBB is back after a fairly long Christmas break.  For our first post of the new year, we are delighted to welcome Aditi Chopra with her recently released "Mr Imperfect Series".  The set consists of Aditi's three most recent women's fiction novellas, which are based in the NRI (Non-Resident Indian) world.  There's "House of Love", "Arranged Marriage" and "Love Tango".  Nikki, Sonali and Maya, three very different non-resident Indian ladies have three very different love stories to tell.  Nikki is ABCD (American born, confused desi), that's an Indian woman born abroad.  Her love story makes intriguing reading.  She is a western woman but she cannot forget her sub-continental heritage.  Sonali is an Indian-born girl who weds a non-resident Indian man by arrangement.  And Maya - well, Maya's romance is something very different indeed.  Aditi Chopra captures the NRI world beautifully in her writing, so pick up a copy of this colle…
