I’m so pleased to be hosting the fantastic author of HIS TEMPORARY FIX on the blog today! Say a warm welcome to Sofia Grey! Sofia was kind enough to stop by today and answer a few questions, so sit back and get to know Sofia Grey and HIS TEMPORARY FIX! (P.S.- There’s also Giveaway, so be sure to enter!)
About HIS TEMPORARY FIX:
Holly Jacobs loses her heart a little too easily. Never again. But when she meets the sexy soldier on the beach, Holly knows she’s in big trouble. Zack Winter is gorgeous and in pain, and when he kisses Holly, all of her resolve melts away…
Zack is on short-term leave to attend a funeral, and he’s walking a fine line. The loss is unbearable…and he’ll do whatever it takes to distract himself from it. Especially if it means a night of searingly-hot sex with Holly Jacobs. Only his brilliant idea isn’t exactly going according to plan.
One night isn’t nearly enough. But if it goes much longer it might end in broken hearts…
Interview With Sofia Grey:
Describe yourself in five words.
Gemini. Coffee. Margarita. Chocolate. Cats.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I have 6 cats. They are my little furry babies. I also have a husband and teen-son, but they are not quite so furry…
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received in your writing career?
Don’t give up.
Writing can be the most brilliant, enjoyable, thrilling, exciting ride ever! It can also feel like dragging a lawnmower through waist-high sludge. Getting the first story published is a landmark moment – you are officially a writer after that!
What do you listen to while you write? Or do you prefer silence?
I listen to music, constantly! I create playlists for every book I write, and thanks to the wonder of free music sharing, I now load them onto Spotify. Every song in a playlist is relevant for some reason. It might be a lyric, an emotion, or an artist, but they all relate to the story.
If you want to listen to the playlist for His Temporary Fix, follow this link.
What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve looked up in the name of research – or what do you think the government has maybe flagged you for?
Yikes! There’ve been a few… I’ve got a romantic suspense series in the works, and that’s meant googling things such as “How to Hack a Secure Server”, “How to Build Tesla’s Earthquake Machine” and “EMP weapons”. I’ve also been googling a lot of occult-y terms, for the paranormal romance I’ve just finished.
What was your favorite part of writing HIS TEMPORARY FIX?
I always start a story with a strong idea of how it will work, but the characters usually surprise me. Zack did that. He had a much deeper reserve of emotion than I expected. His guilt and grief bore heavily on him, but he still gave up flashes of humour. It’d be hard not to love a guy like Zack!
Which actor/actress would you like to see playing Holly and Zack from HIS TEMPORARY FIX?
Eeep! I’m rubbish at naming actors and actresses, probably because I don’t watch that much TV or many movies. How about pictures instead?
This is how I see Holly & Zack:
In HIS TEMPORARY FIX, our hero Zack is a soldier in the military. What is it about soldiers that draws romance readers in?
Where do I start? Brave. Physically fit. Strong. Athletic. Willing to risk his life for his country. Heroic. Confident. Good with his weapon * grin *
What is an unknown fact or fun trivia about HIS TEMPORARY FIX?
It’s set in a small town / village that looks remarkably like the one I live in. My village also has a café by the station (where Marnie worked), and the view from the hilltop (where Zack goes with Holly) is too spectacular to describe with words. Here’s a picture:
What are you working on now?
A full length contemp romance. This is a standalone that slots into the Talisman series, and is the love story of Jon & Anita, who appeared as secondary characters in OBSESSION. They don’t get an easy ride. Look out for Pole Position in early 2016.
Is there anything else you’d like to tell us?
I have another three books planned in the Love at the Beach series. Next up is Dean’s story. PS – he’s a fireman…
