Author Catherine Peace is on our blog today to interview, Penny, a character in her upcoming ebook, Complete Me.
Thanks for stopping by, girls!
Catherine: Hey everyone! I’m here with Penny Birchfield, AKA “The Wunderkind of Publishing PR.” Hmm. *Glances at Penny* Really? Wunderkind?
Penny: Hey. I call ‘em like I see ‘em.
C: All righty then. Moving on. Penny, would you like to tell the people at home a bit about yourself?
P: Well if you insist. *clears throat* My name is Penelope Marie Birchfield. I’m a PR whiz for the super-big NYC publisher that published Claire’s Chicagoland series. I like long walks on the beach, sex on the beach…pretty much anything on the beach, actually.
C: Moving on. Immediately.
P: You’re no fun.
C: *shakes head* You’re impossible. So tell me, what’d you think of Ty?
P: He is a dreamboat. Rowr. That hair, that tattoo…that lip ring…
C: Easy there.
P: Seriously. He’s probably the hottest guy on the planet. And he’s totally head over heels for Claire, which is the way it ought to be.
C: Agreed. So…I’m pretty sure the big question of the day is this: Why did you sign Claire up for 1Night Stand?
P: It’s like this. My job is to make Claire, well Jada Sinclair, shine, so people will buy her books and make all of us bunches and bunches of money. I’ve been with her since book number one, Come in from the Night. She has major talent, but she doesn’t have a lot by way of interview material, if you know what I mean.
C: No love life.
P: Exactly. So I figured it was time for the Fairy Godmother to intervene.
C: Claire calls you her wicked stepmother.
P: Tomato, tomahto.
C: I don’t think that’s really the same….
P: She loves me. She adores me. She needs me.
C: I’m sure she does, Penny.
P: SHE DOES.
C: And there’s your famous ‘mommy voice.’
C: So…are you in a relationship?
P: *Narrows eyes* You coming on to me?
C: Um, no. Just wondering if you’d be interested in Madame Eve’s services.
P: Why? You got an idea?
P: You gonna tell me?
P: You’re as bad as Claire.
C: Any parting last words before we wrap this up?
P: Yes. Buy Complete Me. I have a mortgage, you know.
C: And there you have it. The lovely and talented Penny Birchfield.
P: *Whispers* Don’t forget about the giveaway.
C: *Whispers back* I got this, crazy lady. Jeez.
Thanks, Jackie, for letting Penny and me take over your web space!
To celebrate the release of Complete Me, I’m giving away a $25 iTunes gift card, a free copy of Complete Me, and a t-shirt inspired by the book! Giveaway stuff below the blurb and stuff because I kinda want you to see it….
A romance author who needs to love….
Best-selling romance author Claire Ergleston confines her passions to the pages of her books. When she receives a 1Night Stand date ‘to give her something to talk about in interviews,’ can she let herself be swept away?
A rock star who needs to let go….
The past has a chokehold on former rock star Ty Krause. Instead of killer tunes, he kills time writing passable songs for a British boy band and his nights wishing he had the balls to say goodbye. In a last ditch effort, he signs up for 1Night Stand, thinking that a night of no-strings-attached sex will help him break the leash of his past.
From the moment Claire and Ty meet, sparks fly—but can they overcome their pasts or will their potential love story end on a sour note?
