Krista Ames is here to chat about her brand new Christmas novella, Harper's Wish. It came out last friday and is now available at most major eBook retailers. Since the internet gods can be a bit finicky when it comes to book releases, the best way to find out the most recent buy links is by going to Krista's website (here). However, here are a few to get you started: Amazon, B&N, and Kobo.
Since Krista is super busy today, I'll get my questions in while I can.
1. Let's start with the title--Can you give me a hint about what Harper wished for in her letter to Santa this Christmas?
Hmmm…Harper’s big on the fact she never had any family growing up and kind of jealous of all the townsfolk always coming in to the post office so… guess you’ll have to read it to find out more ☺
2. On your cover, I can't help but notice that Harper's lips are only a few inches away from a decidedly attractive chin. May I ask who she's smiling at? What does he do for a living?
Oh yes, I love that chin! That would be Fin Cole…tree expert extraordinaire! He helps his brother run the family tree farm.
3. Tree expert you say? Now I suddenly have all sorts of ideas about his other physical attributes. When it comes to men, I can be quite shallow. What does Fin look like (and there's no need to limit yourself to the driver's license description)?
Well handsome is one description you won’t find on the driver’s license. He’s muscled but has a lean frame. Brown hair and taller than me, which doesn’t say much since I’m only 5’3” so imagine 5’11”. Stubbled chin as you can see in his picture (sexy isn’t it?). Your typical farm guy with a big 4x4. Don’t ya just wonder what he looks like on a tractor in the middle of summer…..might have to stay tuned for that book ☺
4. How would you categorize the bedroom scenes in this novella--is Fin naughty or nice?
He treats Harper nice of course but he definitely knows how to be naughty, just how she likes it ;) Driving her crazy, making her want more.
5. I always end my interviews with this question--How did you get your start as an author? Why did you choose to write contemporary romance?
I got my start a few years ago now by inadvertently friending the owner of a publishing house. We met on a chat group for a completely different publisher that we were both working with. She encouraged me, let me know that if I ever wanted to submit to her, she’d be glad to read what I have. Well I ended up publishing 4 short stories in anthologies with her house. Was a great start!! I think I chose to write contemporary romance because it’s what I like to read. Now, since I’ve read some historical and paranormal, of course my brain is working overtime trying to come up with material to create a few stories ☺ Thanks so much for having me today, I had so much fun answering ☺
As I said, Krista needs to be in quite a few places at once today, so I'll let her run off. For more information about the book and author, just scroll down.
(P.S. Enjoy the holidays everyone. I'm taking a short blogging hiatus but will tune back in after Christmas. In case you haven't noticed, Delicious Delay releases this Friday!)
Christmas is supposed to be a joyous time of year, but for Harper Donaldson it’s just another day. Orphaned at an early age, she doesn’t have a single good memory of Christmas.
But, when a Santa’s Mailbox mysteriously appears in the lobby of the post office where she works as postmistress, Harper wonders what it could hurt to send her own letter to Santa.
Could he bring her the family she’d always wanted?
