Tour Kick Off - Winter's Embrace by @kballauthor #Giveaway

Western Romance

Published: April 29, 2014

Ten years ago Winter’s heart was broken beyond repair by Stone McCoy. Now she is a travel agent ready to lead an Alaskan Cruise and to her surprise Stone McCoy is on her tour.  A long ago phone call shattered her trust and her self-confidence. She never planned to see Stone again.

While at college, Stone McCoy woke up, after a fraternity party, to find a girl in his bed. Weeks later she told him she’s pregnant. Calling Winter to break things off was the worst night of his life. Now he’s hoping for a second chance at happiness.

The chemistry is electrifying but old issues lead these two on a merry chase. Can they put old hurts aside and begin again? Join Rancher Stone McCoy and Winter Gavin as they try to find happiness from Alaska to Texas and finally on his Montana Ranch.

Ten years ago Rancher Stone McCoy broke Winter Gavin’s heart. Now he turns up hoping for another chance. Will one too many surprises shy Winter away?

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
It’s fulltime for me. As soon as I grab my first cup of coffee, I turn on my computer and I start. First I check my email, then facebook, I do some marketing and then I write. After that I do more marketing. I started writing five years ago and I never expected anyone to buy my books let alone make a career as a writer.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
Getting my mind into which book I’m writing at the moment. I have a free book, Luke’s Fate that I update on the Secret Cravings Website every Sunday. I belong to a great group of writers- Tuesday Tales and I’m writing Maverick Creek for that one and I’m working on a historical western.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family? It’s really been a group effort. I’ve met a lot of wonderful authors on facebook and we’ve worked hard, bounced ideas off each other and we share what is working and what is not. It takes a long time to build a great network of authors and readers.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
I’m trying historical western romance. It’s what I love to read.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?  Seducing His Heart by Jean Joachim
