BULLPEN BLITZ DAY FOUR -- Welcome Jennifer Sable
What an awesome week this has been!! The Tigers won again lat night, and we're having a blast talking books, booze, and the long ball with some amazing authors.
Today, I'm excited to welcome Jennifer Sable, author of the futuristic romance, Separation Point. At the end of the interview, I'M GIVING AWAY A COPY!!!
Most important question first. What are we drinking today?
I love a good, tart hard cider anytime I'm this close to submitting a manuscript to my publisher. (Or because it's Thursday...)
OK. Let's talk about your book. How about a teaser? Give us your favorite swoon-worthy paragraph or bit of dialogue between your hero and heroine.
“You and I,” Trace waved his hand between them, “you and I are already a family from where I stand.”
Effone nearly choked. She didn’t know what she’d expected him to say, but it certainly wasn’t that. “Families have adults and kids and cats. Or dogs. Mine would have cats.”
Leaning forward, Trace reached for a thick book on his bedside table. He opened it and flipped through several pages dragging his finger through the lines of text until he found what he was looking for.
“Family. Noun. Two or more people who share goals and values, have long-term commitments to one another, and reside usually in the same dwelling place.” He purposefully closed the book and leaned forward to put it back on the table. “That is direct from a one hundred year old edition of Webster’s Dictionary, so don’t try to argue with me over the ‘dwelling place’ bit. The word ‘usually’ preceded that phrase. And we can get a cat.”
Effone glanced from his face, to the book, and back to him. “You have a printed dictionary on your night table.”
“You’re my hero.”
I WANT TO READ MORE!!!
In your mind, what makes for the perfect romance hero?
Intelligence, empathy, and a genuine concern for the world around him. Long legs are a plus.
Super important question now: Superman or Batman?
Superman. Because I like blue? No, that's not it. I actually like the less damaged hero. And, I like blue.
Editor's note: Are you sure it's not because he looks like this shirtless?
Even more super important question: Tom Hardy or Tom Hiddleston?
Tom Hiddleston. Anyone who comes with a built in nickname of "Hiddles" usually gets my vote.
Sigh. I could stare at Tom Hiddleston all day.
Oh...sorry. Got distracted there.
