Me: Beth hon! You’re back! I love that you come hang out in Tartlandia. Oh! Oh! *Kermit Flail* I have something for you…. *grabs tiara and places it on Beth’s head* You, my dear. Are an honorary Citizen of Tartlandia! With all the privileges and responsibilities to eat cupcakes and read on cozy couches forthwith. *nods regally* yay!
Beth: *Beth bows* I am not worthy. But I love the tiara and cupcakes, so I gleefully accept. Viva Tartlandia!
Me: <g> Sit. Sit. Put your feet up darling and relax. You have been on a whirlwind of adventure this year. *sigh* I LOVE that there’s more Beth Ciotta stories but… Make time for cupcakes. 🙂 *nibbles chocolate cupcake* Happy Book Birthday! Anything But Love is out! *voice over* In fine stores and ebook retailers everywhere! Thank you for writing Luke’s story for me. 😛
Beth: You’re very welcome! Luke was a challenge and a pleasure to write. *nibbles on red velvet cupcake* I love that he was all charming and doglike with an underlying vulnerability. Rae blinsided him in every way!
Me: Awww I love them together!
Tell me about Luke and Rae, and writing a hero who doesn’t excel at baking cupcakes. <g>
Beth: It’s funny. I actually posted a plea on Facebook, asking readers to share some baking horror stories. They were a hoot and a couple of them ended up in the story. In truth, I totally got Luke’s dilemma. I, too, am challenged in the baking department. (Don’t spread that around!) Regarding Luke and Rae…. They’re exact opposites in so many ways, but at the same time both are kind and caring people with major vulnerabilities. Rae twists Luke up like no other woman. It was touching to see him rising to the occasion.
Me: I adored seeing the two of them flirt and fight and let their walls down. *swoon* I also loved seeing the couples from previous visits to Sugar Creek. Chloe and Devlin, Rocky and Jayce… Daisy! And the rest of the Cupcake Lovers club and sooo I thought we’d play a game. *drumroll* I’m going to quiz you on your characters. 🙂 Cause you write excellent dialogue and I imagine a writers head is very busy soooo we’ll see how much you remember.
Beth: Oh, lordy. Don’t you know me well enough now to know that I have the worst memory EVER?? *devours a maple cupcake while bracing for mortification* Okay. Let me have it. Promise I won’t cheat.
Me: *adjusts crown* ok… here goes!
Stump The Author
Me: Yay! 3 outa 4 hon! That’s good 🙂
I truly do love your characters and storytelling Beth. You pull me in and make me laugh, cry and sigh… and want more! Before you rush off can you tell me what you’re working on now and what we can look forward to next from your apron wearing cupcake self and your steampunky side too?
Beth: *polishing my tiara* You make me feel so special. Like Tartlandia royalty. Thank you! 🙂 I’m presently writing the fourth Cupcake Lover book—IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE. This story features Sam McCloud. His romance has been a long time coming and it’s exciting to write. IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE comes out July 2014. Also coming in early 2014, a novella and a new novel in my steampunk series—The Glorious Victorious Darcys. Stayed tuned for the upcoming unveiling of some uber awesome covers!
Me:*squee!* I do adore your pretty covers!
I love celebrating your book birthdays hon! *sings* And many more! You know you have an open invitation to visit Tartlandia!
Beth: (((hugs back)))) Always a thrill and a pleasure. Thank you, Kat!
