Here we are on Sunday again, don’t know where the week has gone!
Tracy asks of Adrian’s tattoo on his arm: hey Lauren-what does the quote on Adrian’s arm refer to “You got to change with it”?: It’s a Woody Guthrie quote: “Life has got a habit of not standing hitched. You got to ride it like you find it. You got to change with it. If a day goes by that don’t change some of your old notions for new ones, that is just about like trying to milk a dead cow.” Essentially, it’s a reminder to keep moving and growing.
Jean asks: Can we have any sort of spoiler for Adrian’s book? Also, in his book will we get to visit a little with all of our couples and maybe perhaps their babies? The blurb gives you a pretty good idea of what it’s about. Gillian and Miles come along at a time in Adrian’s life where he’s taking a long hard look at himself. He’s got to deal with being Adrian Brown, rock star when he’s really just Adrian, the very lucky guy who gets to make music for his job. And then Gillian drops into his world and tells him he has a son. It really turns his life upside down. And yes, you will definitely be seeing Erin, Todd, Ben and Alexander along with Brody, Elise, Rennie and the baby. There’s lots of babies and family and happiness in the book.
Vic asks: Are you going to continue on with De La Vega Cats? Yep. Next up will be Gibson. I’ve got a pretty full schedule for the rest of this year, but it’s definitely on the list of things I’d like to get out next year.
Ayla asks: how come you haven’t done any video blogs for a while? Just really a matter of not having the time. Between filming, editing and getting them uploaded, etc, it’s a several hour process and right now I just really don’t have it. My schedule will clear up right around RT so after that they’ll be back.
Stacie asks: Before Christmas you mentioned plans for a new website sometime in February. Is that still the plan? Can you give us any hints as to what we might expect? – Yes! The new website design is under way – it’s looking more like March instead of February but that’s mainly because Frauke from Croco Designs is doing such a huge overhaul! I’ve seen some bits and pieces here and there as she’s teased me. I’m hoping to have a main portal and the ability to search and browse by heat level, series, etc with individually themed parts of the site for those genres. This year I have an urban fantasy and a sensual PNR series starting so I wanted to have better searchability by heat and genre type.
Babs asks who the cover model is on NEVER ENOUGH: I honestly don’t know. But I’ll send in a question about him to see if I can find out! It’s a popular question, LOL
Kristina asks: I was just wondering what does Gillian do for a living? – Gillian does design work – web, menus, advertising, etc. In addition, she’s a classically trained pianist. Her days of imagining a life on stage are past, but she also gives piano lessons to pay for braces and leaky roofs and because she loves to.
Jen B asks a question about the Browns: Did you model this family after a family you knew or on various people you have known over the years? Not really. Certainly I personally feel that family is very important and the themes are those I deal with or others I know deal with. Most of my heroes have pieces of my favorite men in them. Most notably my husband quite often, LOL. But as I write they become very real to me. I love the Browns, Keenans and Copelands because they’re real to me too, LOL
Rebecca asks: Do you have any plans for more series of families set in small towns? In August I’ll be returning to Petal for Once and Again, which is Nathan Murphy’s book. I love small town romance so I’d love to keep writing it. Luckily, Samhain continues to want it so I have a place for it.
As always, please feel free to ask some more in the comment section and if I can’t get to them today (it’s a birthday weekend here, mine was Thursday and my dude’s is today so I’m not around much) I’ll get to them on next week’s Question Sunday.
