Thank you Lynda for having me on today! I am excited to be here and share my love of writing and reading. Pull up a chair, relax, have a cup of coffee (I like mine with cream), and welcome to my writing world.
(Lynda Asks:) IF I WERE YOU AND WROTE BOOKS, What things would inspire me?
|Places that inspire me - A view from the Abbey|
(Alanna) For me, inspiration comes in all forms- from music to art, to the places I have visited. My current favorite source of inspiration is music, specifically Imagine Dragons. I don’t know why, but my heroes come to life when I hear their music.
(Lynda Asks:) IF I WERE YOU AND WROTE BOOKS, What would I do when taking a break from writing?
(Alanna) A daily treadmill walk is a must (plus it is the only time I watch TV).
(Lynda Asks:) IF I WERE YOU AND WROTE BOOKS, Would I be doing lots of research?
(Alanna) Yes and I love it! Writing historical romance takes a lot of research. There is only one downside- it is far too easy to get caught up in the research and forget what I am supposed to be writing!
(Lynda Asks:) IF I WERE YOU AND WROTE BOOKS, Would I get excited over seeing my book cover for the first time?
(Alanna) Each time I see a new cover I get excited! It is such a thrill to see all your hard work come together. My publisher- Boroughs Publishing Group- really takes into consideration my ideas. They have given me wonderful covers, including Mistletoe Waltz, which won first place in Cover Café’s Holiday Favorites Contest! (Picture attached in email)

Mont Saint Michel
(Alanna) Yes, I enjoy meeting people and sharing my love for writing. I think it is important to connect with readers.
(Lynda Asks:) IF I WERE YOU AND WROTE BOOKS, How important is a book's title to me?
(Alanna) The book title for me is almost as important as my character names. The title sets the tone for the book and keeps me focused.
(Lynda Asks:) IF I WERE YOU AND WROTE BOOKS, Would I also read a lot, if so, how do I fit that into my schedule and why is it important to me?
(Alanna) I love to read (read and research). My favorite genre is historical romance. I try and make time every evening to read for pleasure. For me, reading is relaxing and allows me to escape to another time and place (which is why I also love to write).
