In the Spotlight feature kicked off in April 2015 and is an opportunity for authors, editors and publishers (basically anyone in the book industry (yes, even bloggers!)) to connect with fans. There is an option to do an interview, guest post, feature a book sale or book release or a cover reveal. Best of all, it’s free! All you need to do is click on the image to reserve your spot!
Now on with the show!
In the Spotlight with A.M. Willard
Welcome to Second Run Reviews, A.M.! Thank you for being In the Spotlight. I appreciate you stopping by and answering a few questions. So let’s get things started
Please tell a bit about your journey to becoming a published author. What’s been the best things about it and the worst?
A rollercoaster! When I played around with poems, and short stories growing up I had that dream of one day publishing, but never thought it would happen. I became a wife, mother, and life got busy. With writing on the backburner I didn’t blink an eye. It wasn’t until one day I said you know I need to finish this story and then maybe one day I’ll publish. That day was April 21, 2014 and I haven’t looked back since.
I’ve been told that roller coasters are fun. 🙂
Tell us a bit about your latest release. What inspired you to write it? Why should fans of Second Run Reviews consider reading it.
WOW… So much is going on. I just released Frosted Sweets back on December 11, 2015 and I have to say this is one of my all time favorites. Frosted Sweets gives you a little bit of everything. Comedy, love, sexy, to die for friends. Oh, and a major sweet tooth. If the fans of Second Run Reviews are looking for a read that is full of love and chaos, than Frosted Sweets is the one they need to read.
My heart is singing and my teeth are aching at the thought of so much sweetness in one book!
What types of books do you enjoy reading the most? What three books to you find yourself recommending to your fans over and over?
Those are all new books and series for me. I’m not familiar with any of them! Although I have read one Colleen Hoover book, just not THAT one.
What is your current obsession? Any secret obsessions you would like to share?
I am a coffee addict, like I mean a serious problem. Oh, and cinnamon hard disc candy. Oh, and let’s see I may stalk Colleen Hoover because I love her. But you know don’t tell anyone.
Oh, I confess, I’m a coffee addict as well. I have to have my coffee in the morning or I am one grouchy book blogger.
I won’t tell anyone else your secrets. *wink*
What is one question you wish I would have asked, that I haven’t?
What’s on the agenda for 2016?
This makes me happy because I have a ton of things coming down the pipeline. Two more anthologies, at least 2 more of A Taste of Love Series are being released and I am released Hearts in Florence in March.
Congratulations on the release of Hearts in Florence. It appears to have some awesome reviews on GoodReads and Amazon!
Any last thoughts or wise words you want to pass along?
Thank you for having me. And for all new authors, don’t give up. Keep chasing your dreams.
A.M., thank you so much for being In the Spotlight. Your description of Frosted Sweets has me curious. I must check it out soon. I hope you’ll come back in 2017 and tell us what’s on your docket for the next year!
Synopsis: Morgan Lewis, a hopeless romantic and the bubbly owner of the Polka Dot Bakery, couldn’t wait to wed the man of her dreams. Feeling giddy as she walks through the park carrying her beautiful wedding dress over her shoulder, she sees a sight no soon-to-be bride should ever see. In that moment, the wedding of her dreams becomes a story fit for a gossip magazine. As tears stream down her face, she wonders who to cancel first; the church or the caterer.
Insert Jayden Rivers whose career in production has him relocated to Atlanta. His mother always said it would take a special woman to lure him away from his work, but he felt like someone sucker punched him when he saw her… the sweet smelling goddess carrying a wedding dress through the park. Will Jayden be able to set the camera aside and restore Morgan’s faith in love?
Frosted Sweets by International Bestselling author A.M. Willard brings women a pinch of contemporary romance, a dash of romantic comedy, and a sprinkle of chick lit in one delicious treat.
