#GuestPost + #Giveaway from Bella Cassidy #author of Shoot the Moon @BellaMoonShoot @rararesources

I’m delighted to welcome Bella Cassidy with a guest post for my slot on the blog tour organised by Rachel’s Random Resources. I read Shoot the Moon earlier this year, my review can be found here.

Shoot The Moon

I am sometimes asked if any of my characters are based on real people. Oh yes, I say cheerily, every single one. Before reflecting that writers who don’t include elements of people they know in their work must have far better imaginations than me.

I find people absolutely fascinating; and will ask a hundred questions of anyone. And I’m delighted that, having reinvented myself as a journalist in my fifties, I’ve finally found an excuse for being so nosey.

#1Day Blog Blitz ~ The Dating Game by @Susan_Buchanan #Extract + #Giveaway @rararesources

I’m happy to share an extract for the 1 Day Blog Blitz, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources

The Dating Game

Gill is looking forward to her date with the cute Irishman

Gill sat down as Sean went to the bar. She loved his accent. Irish accents always did it for her, but Sean’s was particularly hitting the spot. He did look quite young. She knew he was only thirty-five, two years younger than her, but he barely seemed thirty. His photo hadn’t done him justice at all. And he scrubbed up well, too; gone was the unkempt look from his photo. So, he had made an effort. Good. When he returned, he leant across her slightly to place her drink down and she breathed in the smell of his aftershave – not too noticeably she hoped. It wouldn’t do for it to seem as if she were trying to drink him in. He scored a comfortable eight for presentation.

#GuestPost ~ Christina Courtenay #author of Tempted by the Runes #HistoricalRomance #Giveaway @PiaCCourtenay @rararesources

I’m delighted to welcome Christina Courtenay with a guest post and giveaway as part of the blog tour organised by Rachel’s Random Resources.

Tempted By The Runes

In the 860s AD when the Vikings first started to settle on Iceland, it was completely uninhabited. There had apparently been a few Irish monks who had somehow made their way there to live in isolation, and possibly the odd ship that had been blown off course, but unlike most other places that were colonised, the newcomers didn’t have to fight anyone for possession of the land. It was just there for the taking. That must have been an amazing feeling!

The Magic of Amsterdam, and Why I Chose it as the Setting for GLORIA

If you take a look at the book cover for GLORIA you will quickly spot one thing – it is set in Amsterdam! Or…more accurately…the final third of the book is. All of my promotional materials – bookmarks, stickers, ad graphics – contain artwork of the city, so I thought I’d use this blog post to share why I love the city, and why I chose it as the setting for my debut novel.

Before Muriel’s post, here’s what the book is about…

High school soccer star Lindsey Anderson was at the top of her game with graduation approaching and a full-ride soccer scholarship offer in her hand.

Can her BFF and the high school nerdy boy she detests help save her life?
