I feel like I’ve been gone forever.
You should have treated it like a vacation.
Did you have time to relax?
Relax? I did nothing but relax.
I actually did NOTHING. It was boring.
Well, now you are fresh and ready to do a brand new interview.
Are you ready to get started?
Who’s here today?
Nicky Wells is here. [opens door]
What’s with all the sparkles?
Who does this lady think she is?
What, you haven’t heard about me? Where have you been ~ in outer space? Everybody has heard about the Rock Star Romance Trilogy, and today, I want to shout about the release of the second book, Sophie’s Run.
Oh, and I’m here to give away two e-books.
You want to give away TWO books? Getting pretty high and mighty there, aren’t you? You need to get through me before anything gets given to anyone. You hear?
Well, what do I have to do?
Convince me your sappy Earthling book
is good enough for people to read.
LOL, where to start? Put simply, my brand of romance rocks your world. You’ll feel the tremors even if you happen to be stuck in outer space. Yeah, Little Blue Lady, just like you… Sophie’s Run has glitz, glamour, intrigue, romance, betrayal, travel and lots of food, not to mention a gorgeous rock star and a dashing male nurse. I mean, come on ~ what more do you want?
You think I have glitz and glamour?
Okay, so tell me more, what would make someone want to read this little ditty?
With all the above ingredients, why wouldn’t they? But if you want the official sales spiel… well, if you like rock music, celebrities, romance and happy endings, then Sophie’s Run is a must-read. If you’ve ever dreamed of doing something completely crazy with your life, then Sophie’s Run is a must read.
Hmmm. I like music, but if I haven’t read Sophie’s Turn,
would I want to read Sophie’s Run?
Obviously if you’ve already read Sophie’s Turn, you will want to find out what happens next. I should say that you don’t have to have read Sophie’s Turn to enjoy Sophie’s Run! While it is the second book in a Trilogy, and can totally and 100 per cent stand on its own.
Okay, let’s see if it’s up to par with my requirements.
Does anything explode?
Errr… yes, actually.
A cake. And there is a spectacular fire.
Exploding cake… sounds delightfully messy.
I’m just not sure, though…
What, you’re still doubtful? After I’ve promised you glitz, glamour, intrigue, romance, betrayal, lots of food, travel, a rock star, a male nurse, an exploding cake and a fire? You are hard to please. All right, let’s see if the official blurb satisfies your hunger.
Her famous star remains her rock while life takes her on a little detour…
So she has finally found the man of her dreams; well, she’s seen him, for sure! Yet rock star and ex-fiancé, Dan, keeps getting in the way of her new romance—even if he is just trying to be helpful. A fire, an impromptu mini-trip with Dan, and a dreaded wedding later, Sophie is still struggling to meet the love of her life. Then, just as she is getting it together with her perfect man, best friend Rachel commits an act of unspeakable betrayal. Sophie has had enough. Surprising herself and shocking her friends, she embarks on a secret journey and eventually gets her life back on track.
Now, if you already told me she gets her life back on track, I know the ending.
Why would I need to read it?
Exploding cake, remember?
Have you ever actually exploded anything?
I have, in a manner of speaking. Fireworks, for starters, to mark the New Year. Then there’s my home entertainment special, the indoor volcano. Be sure you’ve got high enough ceilings if you try that one. Why would you do that? Let’s just say it keeps the kids quiet for a while. Oh and, at college, many years ago, there was this tradition of filling plastic bottles with dry ice, closing the lid, shaking it up and waiting for the boooom from a VERY safe distance. That was just for fun. I hasten to add that as a non-scientist, I was merely a spectator and never the purveyor of the dry ice nor the assembler of the bottles. Just for the record.
It does sound like there is a hidden and interesting side to you, Nicky Wells.
Do tell, have you ever painted your hair blue?
I have indeed. Not painted, exactly, but sprayed. It wasn’t just blue, it was blue-and-purple streaks. Why? Because I was fourteen and I needed to make a statement.
And what a beautiful statement it must have been!
So, have you ever traveled in space?
I do that all the time. My husband will come home and say, ‘you look all spaced out again’ and I’ll say, ‘well, yeah, I’m just on re-entry.’
Yes! I love a fellow space traveler!
Want to raid Jennifer M. Eaton’s refrigerator?
Totally. I’m starving.
Does this mean I can give away a few books?
Let’s give away one copy of Sophie’s Turn,
and one copy of Sophie’s Run!
There you have it! And I didn’t even have to intervene!
Comment below for your chance to win one of two ebooks.
