The Book Tart Quickie with Erin
Erin: HI, honey! It’s been too long! Oh, I love that dress! Is this couch new? These throw pillows are to die for!
Me: These pillows are great aren’t they? And I love this dress I just rarely have reason to wear it but I dressed up for you!
*Plops onto couch* How are you hon? You’ve are a super duper writing queen! *munches cookie and looks expectantly at Erin.* How many releases do you have on your to do lists this year? 😉
Erin: Well, you know how I love tiaras and being greeted with “your majesty” (wink). I’ve got… hang on, let’s see… two, three… five, carry the one… seven planned. Is that right? No wonder I’m tired! 😉 Oh, wait, six and a half. One is a re-release with some bonus material, so not as much work to do on that one 😉 (I’m still tired though… is there coffee with the cookies? 😉 )
Me: Wow! Have a cookie. Have lots! *shoves cookies at Erin*And Coffee! of course! *pours a cup*
I adore writers like you- lotsa book birthdays! Speaking of book birthdays- Happy Book Birthday for Going For Four!
Click HERE for the Maid of Tarts reviews! 😀
Erin: Ooh, peanut butter chocolate chip, my favorite! (wipes chocolate off chin) And I can’t even tell you how excited I am about all of these books! And thank you! Going for Four is such a fun friends-to-lovers story. *sigh* I miss Cody and Olivia. They’re just so good for each other
Me: mmmhhmm they are delicious together. 😉
Me: What are you working on now (don’t say spring cleaning 😛 ) and when’s your next book birthday?
Erin: I’ve heard of this “spring cleaning” thing but I’m not really familiar with it. How does it work? To me spring is a time for planting flowers and wearing flip flops even though it’s still a bit chilly and taking my walks outside instead of on the treadmill 😀
Me: Ha! Loves you.
So… work… right. Next book, Up By Five, the fifth and final *sniff* book in the Counting on Love series is out APRIL 8th!!! *confetti* I’m very excited to get Conner’s book out to readers, finally! 😉 He’s been a constant character and um… influence… yeah, that’s a nice word, in the other books and now it’s his turn to fall head over heels! And I found the perfect girl to make that happen! *evil-but-affectionate-laugh*
Now I’m working on the last of a three-book series I have coming out this summer — Having a really good time with this sassy city girl and cocky country boy! –and a “secret” project that I can’t talk about much yet 😉 (there’s a tornado and a quirky mayor and a sexy sergeant in the Army National Guard and a feisty female fire chief… how’s that for alliteration? lol!)
Me: *whispers feisty female fire chief a few times* It’s good alliteration. *nods* THAT is a LOT of book birthdays. *throws confetti* happiness
Ok, before I let you escape Tartlandia…we have to have a quickie! 😉
Erin: whoo hoo!
Me: <g> You are a darling for playing with me! Thank you Erin for hanging out at Tartlandia, we definitely need another playdate!
Erin: Anytime, anywhere! These cookies are amazing! Or you can come to my place for cupcakes next time! 😀 And I HAVE to say that your photos with your Bookstore Beau make me grin so big!! So happy for you! <3
Me: awww I’ll take you up on that. I miss my Beau so much! He’ll be back from Afghanistan this summer… Cupcakes help. 😀
Erin: *hug hug smooch smooch*
