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

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

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po
