Hello, everyone! Today I am participating in the Meeting Destiny Tour, which is held by Enchanting Book Tours. We have the lovely Nancy Straight with us today. She is going to tell us about herself and her book. Shall we get started?
How long have you been writing?
I began writing Meeting Destiny in Sep of 2009, so almost three years. I published Meeting Destiny Aug 2011, Destiny’s Revenge Sep 2011 and Destiny’s Wrath Jan 2012.
Who/What inspired you to write?
I’m a hopeless romantic, believing that there really is someone out there for everyone. If by some chance you don’t connect with them the first time, fate will find a way to reintroduce you until you click. I liked this idea and took it a step further, that a couple truly devoted to one another could share multiple lifetimes together. This story had been in my head for a while screaming to get out – no single event inspired me, I really just decided to let the story out.
Describe Meeting Destiny in three words.
If you had to retitle your book, what would it be? Why?
LOL! I am HORRIBLE with titles. I recently ran a contest on my blog for my next novel, letting my friends / fans choose a title for my next book. It worked out so well that I decided I’d never come up with my own titles again. So, if I had to re-title Meeting Destiny, I would definitely ask for help.
If you could have any actor/actress play Lauren in a movie, who would it be?
Do you have any pet(s)? Tell us about them if you do.
Gus and Randy are our two Doberman Pinchers, they’re brothers and are five years old. Flash is my Jack Russell Terrier, he’s six years old and is absolutely rotten, but I love him dearly. Flash is convinced he’s the Alpha Male and most of the time Gus and Randy let him believe it, other times they remind him he could easily be their chew toy. I have a stray cat that I feed every night and morning but she’s never let me get closer than within 3 feet of her – I keep thinking eventually I’ll wear her down and she’ll let me
What is your favorite drink?
Mountain Dew - but only the Mt Dew bottled in the US. I was in Canada a few months ago and found out the hard way that theirs is caffeine free! I had the WORST caffeine withdrawal headaches before one of the locals took pity on me and told me I was going through caffeine withdrawals. Luckily, the White Chocolate Mochas from Starbucks were fully caffeinated.
If you could have dinner with any of your characters, who would it be? What restaurant would you take her/him to?
I would love to have dinner with Lauren. Bella Napoli in North Charleston, SC is my favorite restaurant so I’m sure that’s where we’d go.
Any parting words for our readers?
Meeting Destiny is FREE at all bookstores. I’d love for you to check it out!
