Tour Kick Off - Just Good Friends by Rosalind James

Contemporary Romance
Date Published: 8/31/12
Escape to New Zealand #3

    Some bets were made to be lost.

Kate Lamonica isn’t Koti James’s type. Too small. Too dark. And heaps too much work. So it’s an easy bet that he can be her friend for six weeks without making a move on her, no matter what his mates would have said.
Kate can’t believe she’s made the bet at all. New Zealand had seemed like the perfect escape from the stalker who’d threatened first her peace of mind, and then her life. She certainly doesn’t need any more trouble. Why on earth has she agreed to spend time with a Maori rugby player who’s far too handsome and charming for his own good—and knows it?
But there’s more than one game Koti’s good at playing…

Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
Absolutely. I’ve been a professional writer for some years now, but once I started writing
fiction, it was the only thing I wanted to do!

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
The only hard part is trusting in my characters, trusting my story to unfold in the way
it wants to. If I start worrying about what somebody else will think of it, I freeze up.
Especially when I’m writing a love scene!

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of
Your Family?
I have four people who’ve been the first to read every book. They’ve told me what they
want to see more of, and sometimes, what isn’t working. They have judgment I trust,
honesty I count on, and the patience of Job, to read and re-read. One of them is even a
man, which makes it even better.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
I’m finalizing the revisions for Just for Fun, the fourth book in the Escape to New
Zealand series, which will be published December 8! Eeek! After that, it’s a book set in
the United States. It’s a premise I haven’t seen before, and so much fun to think about
and research. That’s all I’m saying right now. More later!

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently
I’ve read much less since I started writing—because I already have a story in my head all
the time. But when I do read, it tends to be thrillers, mysteries, and nonfiction. I love Lee
Child and David Rosenfelt. And I do most of my reading in audio format, so I can read
while I clean house, exercise, etc.

This or That?

#1 - iPd or Mp3? I have a serious iPod addiction. Music is my major writing expense. I
have a playlist for every book.

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate all the way!

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries? Oh dear. French fries. I eat pretty well, but yeah,
that’s a weakness.

#4 – Comedy or Drama? Always comedy. Life is hard enough.

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks? I prefer my romance well leavened with humor. I
love Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

#6 – Fantasy or Reality? Reality—or should I say, “reality enhanced.”

#7 – Call or Text? Text. Don’t love the phone. Comes from a career in marketing,

#8 – Public School or Home School? Public school. I home schooled for a couple years
out of necessity. Man, that’s hard!

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate? Oh dear, I’m confessing to another weakness here. Too
much coffee (mostly decaf, I promise, Doctor!)

#10 – eBook or Paperback? I love paperbacks. You can’t take an eBook into the bathtub.
