Book Tour : An Unexpected Baby by Shadonna Richards
Little Blurb about yourself:
1. Who or what inspired you to become a writer?
First of all, thank you for having me as a guest on your wonderful blog! I’ve always been inspired to write from as long as I could remember. As a little girl, I would sit on my bed and pen all these wonderful stories and collect them into booklets. It’s always been my passion and my dream. I love books. I love reading them and writing them.
2. How long did it take you to write An Unexpected Baby?
Because I was working on other projects, this book actually took me a few months on and off to write.
3. While writing how many times do you go back and rewrite a plot?
Very little. I usually create a solid outline to begin with but once I get started, the inspiration takes over and I either stick to the outline or the characters take control.
4. You run into a bookstore, where do you go first?
Oh, to the romance section for sure. I love reading romance novels.
5. How many books in a month do you tend to read?
I’m an avid reader. So I usually read three to four books a month at least.
6. In all the books you've read. Who is your most favorite character and why?
Oh, that’s a difficult one to answer. I have way too many favorites from the classics to the contemporary.
