Caro Carson, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about For This Christmas Only.

For This Christmas Only by Caro Carson

Genre Contemporary Christmas romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

QUICK

What’s your favorite book?…

This is the most impossible question to answer. Perhaps Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, because that book launched the romance genre as we know it today. I can’t imagine life without reading romances that end happily-ever-after.

What’s a genre you want to write?…

It would be fun to get back to time travel romance, someday. I published two pirate-themed romances a few years ago, and I’d love to return to that world.

Best writing advice you ever heard?…

Don’t be afraid to put all your best stuff into one book, because new “best stuff” will appear when you start to write the next book. When it comes to creativity, the well doesn’t run dry, so don’t ration the water.

What’s the title and genre of your first book, and where can we find it?

My first book was Doctor, Soldier, Daddy, a marriage-of-convenience story that launched a 9-book series. The paperbacks can be found at used book stores, but the ebook can be purchased in all formats, everywhere ebooks are sold. Thanks for asking! I’d like to re-read that one over the holidays. Yummy hero, if I don’t say so myself.

Sit down dinner or drive through? Definitely sit down dinner, preferably somewhere fancy-schmanzy and preferably while having a good hair day and wearing a pretty dress. Candlelight required.

Fold laundry immediately or let it sit? I fold it straight out of the dryer, but don’t ask how long it sits on the dryer before I finally put it in my closet! Let’s just say the dryer makes an excellent dresser-bureau.

Unload dishwasher right away or use dishes from it? I have children. I do not empty the dishwasher if I can possible help it. They need chores, right? I’m not lazy. I’m being a good parent. *wink, wink*

Driving for pleasure or avoid driving anywhere? I fall asleep on road trips like a baby in a car seat. That was something of a survival skill when I was in the army—you had to catch a nap when you could, which was usually in the back of a truck or in a HUMM-V. I think my brain still assumes it’s vital to take a nap whenever I’m in a vehicle!

Talk or text? Text. It’s funny how it seems rude to call somebody now when a text will do.

Emoji or smilie? Emojis have gotten really fun.

Do It Write: Where Caro Carson writes @TheCaroCarson #RLFblog #Contemporary Romance #HolidayRomance #amwritingA chance encounter at the lighting of a small town’s Yule log will change two lives in USA Today bestselling author Caro Carson’s new contemporary romance, For This Christmas Only. Masterson University’s most famous alumnus has survived a plane crash, but to start living again, he needs a Christmas miracle…perhaps in the form of a determined heroine who won’t take a gruff “go away” for an answer.

Caro, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Before we talk about your office, please tell us about your latest book.

For This Christmas Only by Caro Carson

Genre Contemporary Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

His book inspired her to return to school, but he no longer believes in his own advice.

After nearly dying in a plane crash, financial guru Eli Taylor wants to find meaning in his life. A chance encounter at a small town’s Yule log lighting leads to an evening spent as the fake boyfriend of his superfan Mallory Ames. When she finds herself homeless for the holidays, he invites her to stay with him—if she’ll return the favor and be his fake girlfriend, so he can show his siblings what a loving partnership should look like. Their arrangement will end when the new year begins…or will it?

How long have you been writing?

Is it too trite to say I’ve been writing as long as I could hold a pencil? It’s true, though. I was so frustrated in first grade when I could only fit one or two sentences on those large-ruled sheets of notebook paper.

What was your first published book?

Doctor, Soldier, Daddy, a contemporary romance published in 2013. The “marriage of convenience” trope met the “falling for the nanny” trope, and the result won the Booksellers Best Award for Best First Book, and I will always be super proud of that, can you tell?

Tell us about your writing space or home office.

Once upon a time, I stopped at a furniture consignment store, and I saw a black-lacquer Victorian-era fantasy. Because it was “used,” it was actually less expensive than a desk from Target! I bought it on the spot. Now I try to write up to the level which I think somebody sitting at that desk should be writing.

Anything special about your space?

My desk is at a window that lets me look out on the street. I’m the creepy neighbor who is always watching all the cars and delivery vans stop. But my favorite is the school busses that stop on the corner, dropping off elementary school kids who sprint down the sidewalk and teenagers who trod sullenly home. I love my neighborhood.

What do you love most about that area?

I love having things to touch on my desk. I have a wood bowl that is so smooth to touch, a drawer full of squeeze balls, and even a crystal ball that sits on a little iron cat. There’s nowhere else in my house those things would belong.

What office equipment do you use most, other than your computer?

I have an old-fashioned spiral notebook and a pen beside me. Sudden lines of dialogue will pop into my head that have nothing to do with the scene I’m currently typing, and I’ve learned if I don’t write them down immediately, I won’t remember them when it gets to the right scene to use them. I’ve tried opening a blank document and typing the ideas there, but it doesn’t work the same for me. I think writing by hand and being able to scribble or draw arrows between things on a page is essential to my process.
