Interview with the Author, by the Author
Me: Congratulations on publishing your very first book!
Myself: Thank you very much. I’m quite excited.
Me: Can you tell everyone what your book, My Dirty Detour, is about?
Myself: Sure. It’s a comedy romance with a bad-boy alpha male hero and a witty heroine who doesn’t put up with any crap. There are several supporting characters that are also pretty entertaining. It has suspense, action, romance, drama, and a healthy dose of humor.
Me: Sounds good. Where did you get the idea for the book?
Myself: Well, I love to read. After reading a ton of romance novels on my kindle, I decided that I would throw my hat into the ring and try to write something myself. I like stories with the bad-boy alpha male hero, but sometimes the heroine is so wishy-washy that it makes me want to puke. I like my romance stories to have smart characters, a limit on clichés, and good character back stories. I hate short 90 pages novellas because that’s not a whole book, it’s only a teaser. I hate cliffhangers and I hate love triangles. I hate books that take themselves too seriously. I love humor in a book because life is too short to take yourself seriously all the time. Laughter is the best medicine.
Me: You sound very opinionated.
Myself: Yes, I’m quite picky.
Me: Is there anything you’d like to warn your readers about the book?
Myself: They should know that it does have explicit language. All the major curse words (and some new ones that I invented) do find their way into the book. If anyone is turned off by vulgar language, they probably want to avoid this book. Also there are several steamy bedroom scenes.
Me: Oh, really? Do tell.
Myself: Most characters in romance novels do end up in the bedroom. In real life, people get together and it usually leads to some smooching. I decided to include those scenes in the book and not leave them to the reader’s imagination. If anyone is offended by a sex scene in all its graphic glory, then they probably want to avoid this book.
Me: Ok, sounds good. Any parting thoughts?
Myself: Yes. Please give my book a try and see if it’s something you might like. It’s for anyone who can enjoy a good romance that has hot guys, feisty ladies, comedy, elements of the mafia, and steamy bedroom scenes. If you enjoy my story, please leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads. It would be greatly appreciated.
