WIP = Work In Progress

Let's see we have a couple of WIP right now and some still on the drawing board

Toni's Heart - with Mollie for her magic

Dylann's Long Road Home - still writing that one then Mollie can work her magic

Triple Heat Summer - that one is still on the drawing board I have the basic story written in my little brain but haven't put it on paper

Vet's Tech - that one is a long way from being ready to put anywhere near paper

Wynters Hope - well that will be worked on with a friend Dawnn

Autumn's Fall - not sure on this one it was progressing ok and then I hit the mental delete button on purpose

So I have others that I am working with but haven't gotten far enough to speak of so like fine wine they have to sit and ferment in my oak barrel brain.

Anne Holly

Questions for Authors from My Friends:
 
What is your favorite book that you wrote?
It’s very hard to choose, since they are all like my children in that I see good things in all of them. Strings Attached is my baby since it’s been ten years in the making, but my favourite so far might be Unwrapping Scrooge, my Christmas novella. It’s just so sweet, and the quirky hero is absolutely wonderful (in my opinion).


What book is coming up next and when is the release date?
I have two releases in October 2011, Like Magic (Oct 3) and Charity (Oct 17), and one in December 2011, Bubbly (Dec 3). These are my Halloween, Thanksgiving and New Years installments in my Rebel Ink Press erotic-romance holiday series. After that, who knows?

How do you come up with your stories and characters?
Experience, somewhat. Mostly just my imagination. And my own personality, in terms of characters – in some ways, they all reflect some bit of myself, I think. The stories usually come after the characters, when I try to imagine what made them the way they are. However, sometimes the characters, setting and plot come to me all at once in a big parcel.

Why don’t authors call the parts what they are instead of the descriptions like “hard rock of manliness”?
This is rather a myth, especially with new romance. Perhaps thirty years ago this might have been the case, since people were worried about offending readers, but I don’t see that a lot now. Purple euphemisms are frowned on, today. Women are now considered adults who can handle the real words. Besides, my current books are in erotic-romance, so I can call it all as I see it. People who read them expect to see open, hot sexuality.

Have you ever recreated sex scenes from your past experiences?
I guess, yes and no. I mean, I won’t say whether I’ve tried everything in my books or not, personally, but I find it all sexy or I wouldn’t have written it. Rule number one – write what you want to read.

What was the first book you can remember reading?
The first longish book I can remember reading all by myself was a story called Skags the Milk Horse. His delivery wagon driver slips on ice, and he has to make it back to the dairy to get help. I loved that book. Simple heroism, love and dedication, and the idea that bravery can come from unexpected places – still themes that run in my writing, actually.

Who inspired you to write? 
My mum was constantly reading, so that instilled in me a love of books, which was the start. Then, there were many teachers who were so encouraging when they saw I could write well. And, of course, all of the authors I’ve read over the years.

Fun Facts:

Favorite Color:
Depends on my mood. Red, black and green are big ones. Purple is beautiful.

Favorite Pet:
I’m a cat person.

Favorite Author:
Many! In romance, I’d have to say Jane Austen and Emily Bronte.

How do we find you: 

I have a website, but my blog is updated much more frequently. I am also found on GoodReads, Twitter (@anneholly2010) and Facebook far more than I should be. You can email me at anneholly2010(at)gmail.com.
***

Football & Writing - Love my life

Going to work on Dylann's Long Road Home tonight while I watch some MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL!! Mollie is working on Toni's Heart so that we can get it submitted and we are waiting on results from our submission on Dylann's Long Road Home. Crossing my fingers!!

Sunday, October 9, 2011

Toni's Heart is finished

Well the book is written now I am waing on Mollie to work her magic then I will be submitting it to Rebel Ink Press for consideration, I am hopeful. To be honest I have been really happy with them so they are the only publishers I submit to. Someday that might change but I am happy where I am so don't fix something that isn't broke Right??

Once Upon A Twisted Tale

TWISTED

Escape to a world of make believe where all your grown up fantasies can now be realized. Where Neverland means never denying yourself the most intimate, wicked treats and where what you wear to the ball isn't nearly as important as what you don’t.  Experience a tantalizing set of stories where fairy tales take on an unexpected twist and journey to a place where real love isn't defined in terms of a cookie cutter princess. After all, happily-ever-after isn’t the staple of a charmed life…

Sunday Football & Toni's Heart

Well I have made 2 loaves of homemade bread and doing laundry so in between all that I am going to sit down watch some football and try to finish up Toni's Heart. Wish me luck!!
