Q&A with Sasha Summers, author of Jace

Hello Sunnies!
The lovely Sasha Summers has agreed to join us for a Q&A after my bookclub read her book last month. 
Here it is:

Q&A with Sasha Summers!

-  When did you start writing? Was it a hobby at first or did you always wanted to be a writer?
I've been writing since I was young - my first play was for Girl Scouts many, many--many--years ago. I didn't start taking it seriously until about 2012. After that, it was my everything.  

- When you are not writing what genre do you enjoy reading? And do you have a ’go-to’ author?
I read EVERYTHING, honestly. For romance, I love Julia Quinn and Julia London, Jodi Thomas, and Sophie Kinsella. If I hear chatter or a bunch of great reviews, I'll buy the book. I just finished Meg & Jo by Virginia Kantra and really enjoyed it!  

- What was the inspiration behind Jace? 
I'm married to a cowboy who often sings classic country while he's working, so I already had a soft spot for a singing cowboy hero but I'm not sure I would have written the book if a publisher hadn't asked me to write it. I'm so glad they did. I just love the Kings.  

- Were any of the characters inspired by someone in real life?

I'm a visual person, so I do have a Pinterest board. Michael Ray is a country singer and, to me, he was Jace. I was bummed when his tattoos didn't make it onto the cover! Tim McGraw is definitely Hank!   


- What was your favorite scene to write?

This is a tough one. I love the siblng scenes - they were so real to me. But the tension between Jace and Krystal was always so strong. I do love the scene on the airplane, when she sits with him. And, of course, the first night they spend together was pretty exciting to write too!  


- Do you have any more books coming out this year? 

Accidentally Family came out at the beginning of June. It's a multi-viewpoint family sage I'm super proud of. I had Dog Patch Sweethearts out in February and in September Pumpkin Patch Sweethearts will release. I also have something secret coming out in December. Shhh! ;) Sadly, Kings #2 - Song for a Cowboy - won't be out until January! I know, so so far away.   


Thank you so much for reading Jace. 
Take care, stay safe & healthy,

Sasha

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Fortune Favors the Duke (The Cambridge Brothers #1) by Kristin Vayden [arc review]

@glimpses_of_my_books Oh the beauty that is discovering new authors! Kristin Vayden is someone I had not heard of before Fortune Favors the Duke  was announced and Sourcebooks told me she is local to Washington State. I am planning a signing event with her and Lucy Gilmore this December at  Inkling Bookshop  and of-course I had to read the book ahead of time.  Fortune Favors the Duke  was utterly adorable! I managed to read this beauty in two sittings and I will be reading the other books in the series. Blurb: Quinton Errington is perfectly happy teaching at Cambridge, with his elder brother carrying the duties of being the Duke of Wesley. But when a trip to celebrate Wesley's last week of bachelorhood ends in tragedy, Quinton, who becomes the Duke of Wesley, would give anything to have his brother back. Now, under the most heartbreaking circumstances, Wesley's would-be bride, Catherine Greatheart, is left wanting. Her only protection left, her grandmother, has fallen ill, an
