Guest Author Q&A with Tijan- Just my all time favorite romance writer!

2018 has started really well here at Glimpses Of My Books! 
Last month I had one of my all time favorite Young Adult writer gracing us with her presence (Morgan Rhodes), this month I have the author that has in a very short period of time became my ALL TIME favorite romance writer (seriously... I have read about 10 of her books and just bought another 4 this week)! To think I didn't know her this time last year... sacrilege! 
If you like sexy romance stories with depth and great characters give her books a go!
Check out this post for the review on her latest book, Ryan's Bed

Some of Tijan's books that I have come to Love

I am so very excited to do this Q&A with you!
Ever since I found your books (thanks to a bookstagram friend) I have been hooked. And your last book, Ryan’s Bed, was pure perfection!

THANK YOU!!!

When did you start writing? Was it a hobby at first or did you always wanted to be a writer?

This will make me sound crazy, but it really was because I was going to go nuts if I didn’t. I never considered myself a writer, but I had these characters and worlds and storylines in my head. They just kept coming, more and more. So, one day I was at my family’s cabin and I couldn’t take it anymore. I turned my dad’s old computer on, not even knowing if it would work, and then I started typing. As soon as I began, it clicked with me. I knew that I had to be a writer. I was as surprised as everyone else!

When you are not writing what genre do you enjoy reading? 

I enjoy young adult, paranormal romance, and lately I’ve started getting into psychological thrillers/suspense books. Very fun!

Of all the books you have written, do you have a favorite? Which one?

No favorite! I tend to love the one I’m writing, but I think that’s more because I have to enjoy it to write it, you know?

Your books are all very different from each other, mafia romance, high school romance, supernatural… where do you get your ideas/inspirations from?

Who knows. Lol! Could be just an idea, a feeling, a movie, a song. I wrote Cole because I had an idea driving through an intersection one day.

Your newest release, Ryan’s Bed, made me cry my heart out. It is a tad heavier than the other books from you that I have read. How along did take you to write it? How hard was it? And what was the inspiration for it?

I started writing it a year ago, then had to push pause for a bit. I started it again recently and it probably took me three months to finish! I don’t really know where the inspiration came, to be honest.

What other books do you have coming out this year that we should keep an eye on? I am ‘no-so-secretly’ dying for Carter 3, is it happening?

I’m not sure about Carter 3. The characters are just not talking to me. I have actually quite a few more young adult books chirping though. I’m hoping to get Heather Jax’s book out, and then we’ll see what projects I can finally share! I do have Bad Boy Brody coming May 7th too!

And for the fun of it… if you were to give Ryan’s Bed a sound track, what 2-3 songs would be on it?

Barbies by Pink, Broken People by Rag n Bone Man, Punching in a Dream- stripped by The Naked and Famous, Oh Brother by Cyrus Reynolds.

Thank you so so so much for being with me and my readers today! I am very much looking forward to reading your other books!

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching

The Prince of Broadway (Uptown Girls #2) by Joanna Shupe

Another masterpiece by Jonna Shupe! I loved every second of this book and I am already a third into the next book in the Uptown Girls  series. The Greene sisters are a hoot and the man they fall for can do nothing but be at their mercy.  Blurb: In the second novel in Joanna Shupe's the Uptown Girl series, a ruthless casino owner bent on revenge finds his plans upended by a beautiful woman who proves to be more determined than he is—and too irresistible to deny. Powerful casino owner. Ruthless mastermind. Destroyer of men. He lives in the shadows... As the owner of the city's most exclusive casino, Clayton Madden holds the fortunes of prominent families in the palms of his hands every night. There is one particular family he burns to ruin, however, one that has escaped his grasp... until now. She is society's darling... Florence Greene is no one's fool. She knows Clayton Madden is using her to ruin her prestigious family... and she's using him right back. She plans t
