Special Interests by Emma Barry

Special-Interests-CoverCompared to love, politics is easy

Union organizer Millie Frank’s world isn’t filled with cocktails and nightclubs…until she’s turned into an unwitting minor celebrity. As if being part of a hostage situation wasn’t traumatizing enough, now her face is splashed across the news. But Millie’s got fresher wounds to nurse—like being shot down by the arrogant bad boy she stupidly hit on.

Parker Beckett will do whatever it takes to close a deal for the senate majority leader, including selling out union labor. Charming and smart on the surface, he’s also cynical and uncommitted—an asset on the Hill. But something about Millie has stuck with him and when negotiations bring her to his office, Parker breaks his own rules and asks her out.

Parker can’t understand how Millie has retained her idealism in a place like D.C. Millie can’t believe what Parker’s willing to sacrifice in order to pass a budget. But as they navigate their political differences, what grows between them looks a lot like a relationship…and maybe even a little like love.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The book is about the experience of reaching your thirties and realizing that you didn’t change the world but that’s okay because you’ve found a better dream: romantic love and professional integrity.

I write the kind of romances I like to read: a hybrid alpha or beta hero who is certain pretty early on that the heroine is it for it for him, a smart, conflicted heroine who is making a choice, and a sexy, urban setting that’s very much a mash note to DC, a city which I love.

Fall Again: Beginnings by Donna Figueroa

FALL-AGAIN-Beginnings-8What if you were to meet the perfect person – your best friend, soul mate and the great love of your life – but at the wrong time?
That question is at the heart of Fall Again, a contemporary romantic series about two working actors, Marc Guiro and Lauren Phillips set against the backdrop of New York, Los Angeles and points in-between over two decades.
In the first book, Beginnings you’ll meet Marc & Lauren and their closest friends in the optimistic New York City of the late 1980’s.
Marc Guiro is from Montreal Canada and is pursuing acting against the wishes of his family. Marc’s serious approach to life rarely allows others to get close.
Lauren Phillips is confident, positive and has been fixated on moving to New York and becoming an actor since she was a child growing up in the Midwest. Since her graduation from college Lauren’s sole focus becomes her career.
Marc and Lauren meet when they are very young and focused on building their careers as professional actors in New York City. Despite an obvious attraction, decorum dictates that their relationship remain platonic.
One major complication is Miriam, Marc’s longtime girlfriend and the daughter of his father’s business partner. Miriam hates everything about his life in New York and has her mind set on marriage.
Over time Marc and Lauren find themselves struggling to maintain the façade of being just friends to those around them, as well as to each other. But regardless of their best efforts to remain friends, Marc and Lauren fall in love.
The Fall Again series not only follows the lives of Marc and Lauren, but also provides a realistic look into the lives of working actors.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Fall Again: Beginnings is the first book in the Fall Again Series. My original plan had been to write a short story before I decided to write a stand alone novel. The novel eventually grew into a series.

My story is set in the world of working actors. I naturally drew from my own experiences in the industry (I began working professionally as an actor while still in college) and from the experiences of other working actors. We work in a profession that is often misunderstood. I wanted to present a realistic glimpse into the lives of hard working artists as opposed to glamorous celebrities.

But this is also a Romantic novel. Shortly before I began writing I went to a girls night where the conversation turned to the subjects of first loves and the one who got away. Several women on this night wondered what would have happened if they had met someone from their pasts at a different time in their lives.

Not long after this girls night, I began writing to the theme: what if you met the perfect person- your best friend, your soul-mate and the great love of your life…but at the wrong time?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
A conversation with Bella Andre, who noted that my publishing journey seemed a little unfocused, and gave me advice based on her own success. She told me to consider writing a series. Write them well, but write them quickly, she said. Don’t sacrifice quality, but the key is to write them, and keep writing them. Her exact words? “Write the books. Write the books. Write all of the books.” I will always – alwaysalwaysalways- be grateful to Bella Andre for that advice, and she will always live epic and beloved in my mind for taking an hour out of her exceptionally busy life to mentor a newer author.
