Speaking of people who utilize there time to the fullest, I have contemporary romance author Candace Gold/erotic author Candy Caine.
Welcome Candace! Come in, sit down. Coffee? Tea? Just push the fat cat over, he'll roll. LOL
So, what's your favorite read and series?
Favorite reads: definitely Sandra Brown and Linda Howard.
Favorite series: Lee Child's Jack Reacher books, Daniel Silva's Gabriel Allon books, Steve Berry's books about Cotton Malone and those wonderful books that Clice Cussler conjures up.
What/who got you reading?
I guess the reading gene came from my mother who was always reading.
You're quite an accomplished writer. Did you ever think your career would take you this far?
Definitely a maniac pantser. When an idea hits me, I'll think about it for a few minutes and try to develop it into a one sentence or two plot outline. Though I try to write from chapter one straight to the end, I sometimes get ideas for the story out of order. Rather than lose the thread, I run with it. Eventually I get back to where I first detoured. Sometimes a title will grab me and I end up writing a story using it.
The Sexy plots in the stories Candy Caine write are very *blushes* erotic and fun. Who/What inspires them?
Is there any thing we all would be shocked to know about you?
Red & sexy or Black and mysterious?
Wine with cheese or Beer with TV?
Paperback or ebooks?
I have my stories in both forms, but nothing beats the feel of a book--especially when it's your own.
Independent kitty cat or adoring lovable dog?
Great cook or master at ordering take out?
Romance, comedy, or horror movies?
What's your biggest pet-peeve, in the world, that makes you want to beat something/someone?
BACK TO WORK
Are you insanely organized or are there note written on everything?
What's the biggest misconception people have about you and your writing?
Does your husband like to brag about your career as a romance writer?
Do you ever get so overwhelmed you want to quit?
What's the writing no-no that makes you want to scream?
When writing, must you hide from the husband? (I know I have to!)
You were involved in the making of Chicken Soup for Kid's Soul. How cool! How did it happen and how long did it take to come down from Cloud 9?
As I mentioned, I started writing picture books for children. As my writing progressed, so did the age of the child it was intended for until I was writing young adult stories. When the Chicken Soup editors contacted me and asked if I'd like to contribute to the Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul, I was already writing for the adult market. I really didn't have any stories that would fit what they wanted, so I sat down and knocked one out in about a half hour. They had a panel of kids choose their favorite entries and mine was picked. For charity, all 101 authors each had two book signings in their hometowns. I had a blast, but at one signing my table had replaced the train which upset one little girl.
Any advice for aspiring writers?
Perservere! Believe in yourself. Learn from the rejections.
Blurb: What would you do for love?
When Abby Minton agrees to host a book signing for Charles Greer in her bookstore, she doesn't expect she'll end up giving the man dating advice…or dating him herself! As she falls in love with Charles, she becomes more and more petrified that their relationship would be history if he ever met her dysfunctional family. Between her brother's failed bank heist interrupting Charles's book signing and roses from a persistent stalker making Charles think she's taken, their relationship is one mishap after another. But when Charles finally proposes, Abby is faced with the most ridiculous prospect of all: introducing him to her crazy family. The only solution is to hire actors to portray her family members. But will that just set them on the road to unending lies?
