After leaving his bed without even a goodbye, Alejandro thought he’d never see the sexy American again, so when he reappears in his life he can hardly believe his luck. With a chemistry between them that is off the charts, he wants something more than just a night of passion.
Shane insists he just wants to party but Alejandro is determined to make him see that, together, they can have much more than just fun.
1. What gave you the idea of writing a Spanish themed story
It was inevitable! *grin* I live in Spain, in the city of Madrid.
I had been toying with the idea of having a story that took place here for quite some time. As a matter a fact, A Dragon’s Heart, A Demon’s Blood, starts in Madrid but the protagonists soon have to flee the city. In Spanish Diversion, that doesn’t happen. Not only is one of the lead characters Spanish but they also visit and explore different parts of the region.
2. When did your characters first pop into your head?
Shane has been around since 2011 or so. When I first came up with the idea for this story it was a male-female romance, but when I picked it up some time later I realized part of the reason why I wasn’t getting ahead with the story was because Shane was not with the right partner. Soon after that epiphany, tall, dark and sexy Alejandro came along.
3. Did it take you long to write the story?
Yes and no. I procrastinated a lot with this story, but when I finally sat down to write “for real” it took me about 2 weeks or so.
4. Without giving away any spoilers, was the story always straight forward for you to write, or did it pop up any surprises along the way?
Once I got down to it, it was surprisingly straight forward, however, like I’ve mentioned above, there were quite a few bumps in the road.
5. Last one, what words of advice do you have for aspiring writers out there (such as myself ;p)?
Write, write, and write some more. Also, don’t let anyone bring you down. Writing is a subjective business. What one publisher/reader hates another might love.
Great answers, and the book looks great Elyzabeth! Congrats on the new release :D
Defined as weird since she was about eight, Elyzabeth honors the title by making up songs about her chores, doodling stars and flowers on any blank sheet of paper and talking to her dog whenever he feigns interest.
Losing the battle to the voices in her head is her favorite pastime after annoying her younger sister with her singing. Writing stories full of passion and emotion where love conquers all is her happy pill and she'll forgo sleep to make her readers live the dream.
