Tour Kick Off: Leaving Barringer by @tinamartinbooks

Romantic Suspense
Date Published: January 4, 2016

Calista Blackstone has no problem playing her position as the supportive, dutiful wife of Barringer Blackstone. All she wants is a family, but after five years, she's given up hope of actually becoming a mother - at least to Barringer's children.
Barringer (Barry) Blackstone is too busy making money to make babies. CEO of Blackstone Financial Services Group, he's actively working on taking his father's company to the next level and avoids the subject of children. He's no longer certain that he wants the added stress of trying to raise a family while growing the business. But the workaholic will learn the hard way that money should never precede family.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career? No. I see writing a something I enjoy doing that I just so happen to get paid for. It’s a good feeling to wake up in the morning and sit in my home office, thinking about what I’m going to write for the day.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process? The hardest part for me is getting the first draft finished. That’s only because I like to add details but I know I cannot spend much time on the first draft. So I try my best to save details for drafts two, three and sometimes, four.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family? No. I pretty much took off writing on my own. There was no one to hold my hand through the process and tell me what to do and not do. As a writer, I don’t think one would need that. It could stifle creativity.

#4 – What is next for your writing? Next, I want to take a stab at writing romantic comedy. It’s something I’ve never done, so, this summer, I’m going to challenge myself.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading? Yes! I love reading. Sometimes, I read several books at a time. A few chapters from this one. A few from that one. At the moment, I’m not reading a thing because I’m working on a novella.
