Please Welcome Writing Team, Patti Shenberger and Nancy Fraser Visiting on Their Gambling on Love Giveaway and Blog Tour

Hi Patti, Nancy. Thank you very much for dropping. Please tell us about your current project then answer a few of the ‘weird’ questions given to authors for their first visit at Heart Melting Romance. By the way, ladies, your answers may be but do not need to be ‘true,’ and changing names to protect both the innocent (and yourselves) is perfectly okay. Friends, please leave the gals a comment and let them know what you think of their ‘weird’ answers.:) They are also holding a drawing–details below the answers–so leaving a comment is a must. Now here are Patti and Nancy.

“Our current release is Gambling on Love, a historical romance set in the 1860’s. The book came out Monday, May 20th in the Scandalous line from Entangled Publishing. Forced into an unwanted marriage, Felicity Beaumont and Jake McCade find themselves at odds over everything, including their escalating feelings for one another. Next up, coming November 2013, we have The Lawman’s Agreement (working title) which continues on another of those hunky McCade men. This time lawman Zachary McCade, has met his match in Doctor Suzanne Martindale.”

 

Book, cover, romance, Patti Shenberger and Nancy Fraser, historical, novel, author, writer, 1868, New Orleans, Mississippi, River Boat1. What cd is in your cd-player right now? Patti – Right now I have the cd from the movie Burlesque playing. Every time the movie comes on tv, I’ll watch it. Nancy: As crazy as it might sound, the soundtrack from the 1990’s t.v. series, Lois and Clark, The New Adventures of Superman.

2. Are you a “dogperson” or a “catperson”? Patti – I am definitely a dog person (though we do have a cat in the house, he’s the hubsters). To me, my little cockapoo-westie is like another child. We raised the 28 and soon to be 30 yr old, kicked them out of the nest and replaced them with the four-legged versions who don’t cost anywhere near what the kids did, don’t talk back and only occasionally barf on the rug (G).
Nancy: I love my grand-dog Neala, but don’t have a pet myself. I’m allergic to cats, so they’re never around.

3. What time do you normally go to bed on a working day? Patti – I’m an early to bed person. If I’m up past 9 p.m., then something must be going on to keep me awake. But when I’m writing and in the zone, I can stay up till at least 2 a.m. without any trouble. Though I’m a beast to live with the next day. Nancy – midnight most nights unless, as Patti said, I’m in the writing zone. Then, if I’m on a roll, I can work all night.

4. Who told you they loved you last? Patti – My hubster this morning as he left for work. Nancy – My 10 yr old granddaughter Mackenzie. It melts my heart every time she says it because I know she truly means it.

5. Last furry thing you touched? Patti – depends, are we talking about in the fridge or outside of it? Seriously though, my little muttsky Sophie. Nancy – I think it was once a kiwi, but coming out of my refrigerator, I’m not quite sure what it turned into.

6. How many drugs have you done in the past three days? Patti – Easy – Motrin, Motrin, Motrin Nancy – Tylenol Muscle and Body – 1 at bedtime

7. If you had to choose between a millions bucks and being able to fly,which would you choose? Patti – I would take the million bucks, then I could fly to wherever I wanted (such as the private island I’d buy with the million bucks) Nancy – the million bucks. I’m too old to fly without a comfy first-class seat beneath my butt!

8. An angel appears out of Heaven and offers you a lifetime supply of the alcoholic beverage of your choice. “Be brand-specific” it says. Man! What are you gonna say about that? Even if you don’t drink booze there’s something you can figure out… so what’s it gonna be? Patti – this is an easy one – Pepsi. It’s my biggest vice. Nancy – Bailey’s Carmel flavored Irish Crème (good in coffee, over ice cream, over ice) Patti – I remember Nancy drinking that in our hotel room years ago when we were at RWA in Anaheim.

9. Rufus appears out of nowhere with a time-traveling phone booth. You can go anytime in time. What time are you traveling to and what are you going to do when you get there? Patti – I would like to go into the future twenty years and see how my kids and grandkids are doing all grown up. Nancy – 1868 – I’d love to meet our characters from the McCade Legacy and maybe snag one of those sexy McCade men for myself!

10. You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what’s even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What’s it gonna be? Patti – the super power of speed. That way I can get everything done I need to like housework, writing, yard work, painting and still have time to read. Nancy – Super Power of Creativity … so that I never run out of good ideas for a book.

2. Please tell us about your most recent release:  My most recent release will be this coming November 15th from eXtasy Romance.  Flavorful Seductions is book six in The Zodiac Club series. Kate Carlisle needs every ounce of courage she can muster if she has any hope of keeping her catering business Sinful Sweets afloat.  But when business mogul Adam Belfour is in desperate need of her culinary skills, it’s all Kate can do to keep her mind off his sexy physique and on whipping up decadent desserts in order to seal the deal.

3. What cd is in your cd-player right now?  Carrie Underwood Blown Away

4. How much do you use ketchup? (1 – not at all, 5 – on all foods)  That’s a ‘5’.  I love ketchup on pretty much everything.

5. Are you a “dogperson” or a “catperson”?  Definitely a dog person (she says looking at her sleeping little cockapoo-westie mix Sophie Bean.)  But we also have a cat who believe he’s a dog in the house.  Good old Ace.

6. What’s the size of your shoes?   8.5

7. What would you want to be written on your tombstone?  That I loved well and lived well.

8. Is your middle finger longer than your ring finger?  Nope, not even close

9. The person you would never want to meet?   Freddy Kruger!  I hate scary movies.

10. Do you like carrots?  Ha, this is a good one.  I love raw carrots, but loathe cooked ones.  How weird is that?

11. What’s your favorite word?  Poopy-squats.  I have no idea where it came from, but it’s my word of choice instead of saying a swear word when things don’t go right.

12. When you looked in the mirror first thing this morning, what was the first thing you thought?  Crap, I look like my mother (G).

13. The last song you listened to?  On The Pontoon by Little Big Town on Dancing With The Stars

14. What is your guilty pleasure Disney movie?  Eight Below or Snow Dogs.

15. You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere. You have to depart right now. Where are you gonna go?   I would go to Hawaii. It’s a place I’ve always wanted to visit.

16. An angel appears out of Heaven and offers you a lifetime supply of the alcoholic beverage of your choice. “Be brand-specific” it says. Man! What are you gonna say about that? Even if you don’t drink booze there’s something you can figure out… so what’s it gonna be?  That’s easy, being a non-drinker, I’m picking Pepsi

17. Your house is on fire! You have just enough time to run in there and grab ONE inanimate object. Don’t worry, your loved ones and pets have already made it out safely. So what’s the one thing you’re going to save from that blazing inferno?  I have an afghan that I made when I first learned how to crochet.  It’s pretty raggy, but I’ve had it for over 30 years, so that’s what I’m grabbing.

18. You can erase any horrible experience from your past. What will it be?  My gut instinct is to say my adventure with colon cancer.  But after thinking about it for a minute, there are so many things I learned during that time, that I don’t think I would erase what I went through.
