Blog Tour, Day 3…Click for EXCERPT!:
My favorite part of beginning the book is dreaming up the hero and I can usually see the first scene in my head. Then I launch from there. I’m a pantser so I don’t have much idea where I’m going from the first scene, but I trust the story will show up. And panic when it doesn’t. But I knew I had a tough guy with a hard past and a hotel heiress (whose past hasn’t been all happy spending sprees) with a secret. I knew she was blonde and beautiful and looked expensive. And she had to love dogs. Things Randa and I have in common: the dog thing. I think that’s it. But that’s enough. We could be friends.
When you read, do you fall in love with the hero or identify with the heroine first?
