Me: Nicole! Ahhh honey- you must be exhausted after your trip! Come in, come in and kick up your feet. Have a cupcake and celebrate your return from the Romantic Times Book Convention! *sigh* I missed you my Aussie of Tarts!
Nicole: *Nicole kicks off her shoes and collapses on the couch* I’m soo tired!! But had a fantastic time catching up with everyone. Although I missed you terribly by Queen of Tarts!!
Me: What costumes did you wear? *puppy eyes* Oh! Oh! What was a highlight for you? *passes cupcakes to Nicki*
Now RT, I really didn’t do costumes this year and I only went to a couple of parties. I learned last year that some of them wasn’t for me LOL. The highlight would be when I went into a store one night after dinner and was chatting to the saleslady and when I gave her a postcard of my book “Tango Love” she told me she’d read it. That was a huge squee moment.
Me: Oh My Goodness! LOVE that!
Sooo Besides the convention funness you also celebrate a book birthday! *Kermit Flail* Daniel’s Decision debut on May 5th. Can you tell me a bit about writing a story in The Emerald Springs Legacy series with other 4 authors? By the way… I loved Daniel! *swoon*
Nicole: Oh it was fun working with the other 4 authors. The whole continuity came from a passing comment I made about doing continuities. We had a lot of fun teasing each other on who was the cutest brother – I know without a doubt Daniel is the cutest but Monia Tillery – who wrote about Adam the oldest brother – always said Adam was the cutest. Elley who wrote about the youngest brother Chad, would just sit back and sip a beer – so like Chad. We created the whole town and the townspeople. It was so much fun creating a whole community and the two families as well.
Me: *bounces on couch * Oh! Oh! Did collaborating with girls for The Emerald Springs Legacy prepare you a bit for your next venture? I adore short stories and I’m so excited about your contribution to July’s Obsidian Collection. *licks frosting off lip* Can you share a bit about what your story?
Nicole: My story is called “Obsidian Heart” and is about a girl who, after being dumped by her long term boyfriend, still decides to go on her vacation to a tropical getaway. She’s looking to have a bit of a holiday fling but ends up finding a mysterious man who can offer her more than just a fling.
It’s an exciting project as it will be first foray into self publishing and I’m super glad I’m doing it with 8 other people. Makes it less scary. LOL
Me:*squee!* Sounds yummy! Also- going point, friends help stuff be less scary. 😀
Ok, before I let you go back to Texas and the spring heat we have to play a game!
Nicole: I’d much rather stay here with you – I love my visit with my Queen of Tarts!!!
Me: Thank you so much for playing with me here at The Book Tart and for all your wonderful stories! I adore you very much a lot!
Nicole: Thanks so much for having me!! I love visiting you and I’m so glad you are MY Book Tart!!!
