Fellow author Chastity Bush is a very busy lady but I cornered her for a handful of questions before we talk about her new book.
1. You can turn any book currently on your bookshelf (paper or digital) into a movie and choose any role you want. What book and character do you choose?
Oh, my favorite book is “Dark Desires After Dusk” by Kresley Cole. I’d love to be the heroine Holly. Not only do she and I share some weird quirks already, but she turns out to be something really cool and to top it off, she’s the main focus of sexy Cade Rydstrom, and that’s one heck of a treat!
(Hey, that was my first Kresley Cole book too – and one of my favorites by her!)
2. What are the last 2 books that you read and recommended to friends?
The first one is “Wanted: Undead or Alive” by Kerrelyn Sparks, and the second is “Lotharie” by Kresley Cole. Both are great vampire romance novels and they really sucked me in.
3. What is the genre that you read least?
I would have to say western romance. I love the genre, but there aren’t many nowadays that I really find myself drawn to. I loved “For the Roses” by Julie Garwood, and it is still to this day my favorite western romance.
4. What, if anything, do you have on in the background when you write?
If the kids are home, the television! But if it’s just me, I listen to a little bit of everything. I love all music, so whatever’s on the radio, that’s what’s playing. On my iPod though, I have a lot of alternative and metal music from artists like Rob Zombie, Green Day, Linkin Park, The Black Keys, and so many more.
5. How many plot bunnies or works-in-progress do you currently have?
At the moment I have three that I’m juggling. I’d like to have them all finished by the end of the summer, but that’s most likely not going to happen. I’ll more that likely have one finished, which will be good enough for me.
My most recent release (June 4th) is a romantic suspense titled “Guarding Eden”. This book was a lot of fun to write as the heroine has a lot of sass. This book is a novella so it’s a quick read, but it’s very funny/sexy/mysterious. Here’s a little blurb.
Guarding Eden by Chastity Bush
Eden Campbell was a woman with it all: a good job, handsome fiancé, and the beloved cat she’d had since she was a teenager. But when her world’s turned upside down by the sight of her fiancé in high heels and matching lingerie, shaking his money maker for a pink haired man named Bubbles, Eden finds herself single again for the first time in nearly a decade, but that isn’t the worst of it. Only days later she finds herself the sole suspect in her boss’s estranged wife’s murder.
The only upside to her situation is the sexy man her best friends and lawyers entrusted her life to.
Eden Campbell is stirring Jasper’s desires unlike any woman before. From her black as night hair to her deep blue eyes, she sets his blood on fire. She is his to protect until her name’s been cleared and the charges have been dropped, but every look sent his way has him wondering, who’s going to protect her from him?
“Guarding Eden” and her other books can be found here.
Thanks for popping by, Chastity.
