Tour Kick Off: Beach Man by Annabel Foxx #giveaway

Steamy Contemporary Romance
Date Published: May 30, 2015

Kim is a former Broadway dancer, who feels trapped in a loveless marriage to a jealous wealthy older man.  He blames her for crippling him in an auto accident that he himself caused.
Kim strives to make the marriage work, despite her husband’s blame, verbal abuse and bitterness. 
When she meets a wickedly handsome man on the beach, she fights not to want him, not to want a new life and not to fall in love.  But Derek is seductive and irresistible—a former soldier who recently comes to town to start a landscaping business.  Kim falls hard for him, and he becomes addicted to her.
Although Kim wants a divorce, her husband finds out about their affair, and devises a plot to destroy them both.  They must struggle to survive a web of lies, deceit and dangerous passion.
(Due to adult themes and sexual content, this book is recommended for mature readers.)

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
Definitely.  It has become just that—and so much more.  It’s a way of living. 

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
Facing that blank page every morning and waiting for my sleepy muse to show up.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
Yes!  My dear friend Serena (who taught English) read, edited and made constructive comments on all of my early short stories.  She has the loudest, wildest laugh that you can hear for mucho blocks.  She always kept me laughing whenever I got discouraged. 

#4 – What is next for your writing?
I’m at work on THE SUMMER MAN, the 2nd book in The Scorpio Beach Series. 

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading? 
I love to read.  I have just finished reading The Beautiful American by Jeanne Mackin, The Raven Prince by Elizabeth Hoyt and Caught in the Act by Lori Foster.

I love to read and write novels.  I'm also a loner, who loves to drink copious amounts of coffee--and I won't turn down a good bourbon if it's offered by a handsome man... or indeed, by any kind and generous man.
I'm a Scorpio, and I love the beach.  I have a background in graphic design and creative writing.  My mother kept diaries and wrote short stories about Christmas, old lovers and travel.

My cat, Count Elvis, loves cognac and Pop Tarts.

Reading on the beach is one of the great delights of life.  Sun, sea and sand.  Ahhh... and then I pick up a book and dive into a story.   I love everything gold: golden tans, golden hair, golden sunsets and golden earrings. 

My husband, Dane, is a diver and sun worshiper.
