In February, Romance Lives Forever introduced two new
features. Cover Love is a short intro to a book and includes only a blurb, buy
links, and social media contacts for the author. We use it if one of our scheduled
authors is unable to appear, and no other material is on hand. If you would
like to submit your book for this feature, see the FAQ page for more
information. The other was a full week dedicated to one publisher. There will
be four this year, including Liquid Silver Books
in June, and JMS Books LLC in September. For
February, it was the Boroughs
Publishing Group
, “Where Story Matters.”
There were 7 posts by Boroughs, 17 author interviews, 3 book
releases, and 1 article for 28 posts in a 28 day month.
There were unusual ties this month. Jerrie Alexander and Keta Diablo
shared a spot because their posts went up the same day. Boroughs took first,
third, and fourth place, and three people had even numbers of hits for fifth. Here
are the top posts (judging by page hits).
1. Boroughs Publishing

Blurb:
Catherine McCoy is running from her past. She’s been on the move for a year, hiding the secret and guilt in her heart. When she lands in small-town Texas and meets Sheriff Matt Ballard, he ignites a flame she thought lost forever.
Matt has scars of his own. He left the big city after an undercover operation went bad and his partner was killed. Now, as Matt hunts for a serial killer who paints his victims like porcelain dolls, Catherine becomes a safe haven for him. Two tortured souls finding comfort in each other’s arms—until he uncovers her secret, and their bond of trust is broken.
When Catherine disappears, Matt races to find her, fearing the murderer has found his next green-eyed doll. But the killer has a surprise coming. Catherine will fight to the death before she’ll be a victim. But will her determination be enough?
What are your main characters’ names, ages, and occupations?
Catherine McCoy, 30, part-time waitress and part-time file clerk

 Interview

What is the most important thing you do for your career now, as compared to when you first started writing?
To write the best book possible and then write the next one. Social media and marketing are important, but I sincerely believe the best thing I can do to further my career is to keep writing. I plan to keep learning and honing my craft.
What do you enjoy most about life?
Waking up each morning? Just joking. I love everything about life. My family, friends, and fellow writers are the best in the world. I live in Texas, love the warm climate, blue skies, and friendly people. I can’t ask for more.
Jerrie Alexander

If you could choose anyone to be your mentor who would it be?

Hands down, the awesome Linda Howard. Holy cow, when talent was passed out, she must’ve been first in line. She grabs the reader by the throat and pulls you into each story. Death Angel is my all time favorite book of hers. You don’t want to know what all I’d do for the chance to work with her.
If you could give the younger version of yourself advice what would it be?
I push hard, work hard, and expect a lot from myself. So I’d say to be patient with myself. It’s sad to admit, but let’s be honest. Patience is not one of my virtues. My husband tells me that no one will see these words on my tombstone. “Here Lies a Patient Person.”
Do you have a muse? Describe this person, please.
If I do…she AOL. She’d constantly feed me story ideas and chocolate. My shoulders would never be tired, because her rubdowns would be off the chart. And did I say she?? I meant he…and he would look like Gerard Butler and be at my beck and call.
Do things your family or friends do ever end up in a book?
Maybe a little of the hero’s personalities have my husband’s John Wayne attitude. But other than him, I’ve never patterned a character after a friend or family member. A few of my friends are quirky, but thankfully, none of them fit the profile of the killers in my stories.
What kind of books do you read when taking a break from your own writing?
I love to read romantic suspense authors, other than Linda Howard, Allison Brennan and Cindy Gerard are two of my favorites. My guilty pleasure is a good historical romance. When I really need a break from the murder and mayhem, I’ll grab a Elizabeth Hoyt or Jade Lee book and curl up with a cup of coffee. The only sound you’ll hear from me is an occasional sigh.
What do you think is the future of epublishing?
I think we’ve only scratched the surface. Epublishing will continue to grow and provide readers with great yet easy to purchase books. The fast pace of our lifestyles will only speed up, increasing the demand for more.
What was the proudest moment of your life so far?
I claim the prize of having the most beautiful daughter ever! She and her husband brought the most awesome granddaughter into this world. So I’d have to say, even as cheesy as it sounds, my proudest moment is anytime my family is together.
Imagine you get to go on a dream vacation, but you have only one hour to pack and leave, and it starts as soon as you finish this interview. What will you take with you and where will you go?
Sun block, two bathing suits, a beach towel, snorkel gear, sandals, shorts, T-shirts and one summer dress, all which fit in one carryon. I’d head to the clearest, warmest water in the Caribbean.
If your life became a movie, who would you want to play you?
A blonde Anne Hathaway
If you were a color, what color would you be?
Red
Which statement is more like you:
“I am a vacation spa because I am laid back and relaxed.”
“I am a ten-countries in ten-days tour vacation, because I do things as fast as possible.”

Please Fill in the Blanks

I love pizza with football.
I’m always ready for company.
When I’m alone, I write.
You’d never be able to tell, but I’m uncomfortable around strangers.
If I had a halo it would be stolen.
If I could scuba dive I’d give up snorkeling.
I can never climb Mount Everest because I’m terrified of heights.
