Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Just For Fun by Rosalind James

Contemporary Romance
(Escape to New Zealand #4)
Date Published: 12/8/12


What if the person who broke your heart turned out to be the only one who could mend it?
 Nic Wilkinson is a responsible, organized, disciplined rugby player at the top of his game. Emma Martens is a sometimes-scattered, often-emotional, and always-broke would-be designer with a big chip on her shoulder where Nic’s concerned.
 They have no history together, except one perfect week. Nothing in common anymore, except the most important thing of all.
 Getting together again would be messy. Complicated. Scary. And, just maybe, worth every risk.

Rosalind James is the author of the Kindle bestseller Just This Once and the three subsequent books in the Escape to New Zealand series. She is a former marketing executive who has lived all over the United States and in a number of other countries, traveling with her civil engineer husband. Most recently, she spent several years in Australia and New Zealand, where she fell in love with the people, the landscape, and the culture of both countries.

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.
