GET LOST IN THIS STORY !
A BABE IN TOYLAND
The weather outside might be frightful—
but the Cole sisters are indulging in
something quite delightful...
Rita Mae Cole and Tyler Ramsey hail from feuding
families. Be together? Impossible. But the incredible
sex between them says otherwise....
Author Tawny Weber is usually found dreaming up stories in her California home, surrounded by dogs, cats and kids. When she’s not writing hot, spicy stories for Harlequin Blaze, she’s shopping for the perfect pair of boots or drooling over Johnny Depp pictures (when her husband isn’t looking, of course). December 2010 will see Tawny’s 9th Blaze with her novella, A BABE IN TOYLAND in the MUST HAVE BEEN THE MISTLETOE anthology. To find out more about Tawny or her books, visit her on the web at http://www.tawnyweber.com/ but don't forget to ask her by leaving a comment.
ANGI: How often to you get lost in a story?
ANGI: What’s the first book you remember reading?
TAWNY: I know I’d read a lot of others, but the first book that stuck with me – made a major WOW I love reading impact, was Little Women. I laughed, I cried and I fell in love, both with the characters (and Laurie *g*), with Louisa May Alcott’s book, and with reading in general. Because I loved her writing so much, I then read all of Alcott’s books. But Little Women always stuck with me. I reread that book until the binding fell apart, then taped it up and read it a few more times.
ANGI: What’s your favorite “love” word?
ANGI: What’s your favorite fairy tale?
TAWNY: Beauty and the Beast. There are so many powerful elements to that fairy tale. The heroine is strong and brave, she’s curious and clever, which is so empowering. The beast element is such a wonderful lesson in looking beneath the surface, as well as a great example of the tortured alpha hero. And if you go with the Disney version, those dancing dishes rock.
ANGI: What’s your favorite cartoon character?
TAWNY: Tinkerbell. She’s sassy and sexy and fun.
ANGI: What turns you off like nothing else?
ANGI: Is there a playlist you’d recommend for reading your latest release?
TAWNY: I create a playlist for every book I write – you can check out the one for A BABE IN TOYLAND, as well as the excerpt, here on my website: http://blog.tawnyweber.com/books/a-babe-in-toyland/
ANGI: Where do you read and how often?
TAWNY: I read all the time. If I’m in the plotting and first chapters of a new story, I’m reading non-fiction, though. Once the story’s flowing, I treat myself to fiction again and during deadline will read a few books a month. Between deadlines I’ll go on reading binges, often reading a couple books a day for about a week. As for where, everywhere :-D I read in bed or on the couch by the fire this time of year. If I’m doing errands that require waiting around or traveling, I take my Nook to read.
ANGI: What sound or noise do you love?
TAWNY: My daughters’ giggles, my husband snoring (really, really) and the sound of Christmas songs late at night when the house is quiet, the tree is lit and candles are glowing in the window.
ANGI: Is writing or story-telling easier for you?
TAWNY: What a fabulous question!! I had to think about this, but I guess I’d say that writing is easier for me. I don’t have a good command of drama, which I think is necessary to tell a story well. When writing, I can build the characters and let their drama do the work.
ANGI: What’s something you’d like to tell your fans?
TAWNY: Yes, thanks!! I’d love to share the details of a contest I’m holding to celebrate the holidays and A BABE IN TOYLAND. I’ll be giving away the sweetest chocolate truffle ornament – it looks good enough to eat – and a copy of one of my books.
There are three chances to win, one on my website contest page, one on my Facebook Fan page and the other on my newsletter.
ANGI's GOTTA ASK -- TAWNY's GOTTA ANSWERQUESTION: So, Tawny. You write for Harlequin Blaze and I gotta ask *big grin* How many times is your husband asked if he’s your inspiration for your love scenes? And, okay, I’ll ask... IS HE?
The more serious answer? Yes, in a way he really is. There are always elements of my husband in my heroes. Traits I admire, habits I think are cute, phrases or interests that he has. These all find their way into the creation of heroes I admire and can fall in love with – so he really is always my inspiration, to one degree or another *big smile*
