Author Interview: A Bride by Midnight by Liz Carlyle

Short Blurb about yourself:

Liz is the author of over twenty historical romance novels. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and their four amazing cats.

1. Who or what inspired you to become a writer?

I’m not sure I was ever precisely inspired. That makes me sound almost . . . . romantic and introspective. Writing was always one of my (few) talents, so when I got bored one day, I decided to write a novel.

2. How long did it take you to write (title of book you're promoting)?

About eight months.

3. While writing how many times do you go back and rewrite a plot?

Almost never.

4. You run into a bookstore, where do you go first?

To the romance shelf, of course!

5. How many books in a month do you tend to read?

Sadly, zero.

6. In all the books you've read. Who is your most favorite character and why?

I would have to say Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice because she is just so sensible and has this unassailable sense of self-worth.

7. State 5 random facts about yourself.

I’m short (and shrinking!)
I own three pairs of glasses—and I wear each pair at least once a day.
Career placement tests indicate I should have become an actuary, and that novelist was probably last on the list.
I have four newspapers delivered every day—my small slap in the face to digital progress.
I’m part of an endangered species—a conservative Democrat.

8. Your favorite Genre?

In the last couple of years, when I’ve had a chance to read, I’ve tended to pick up suspense/police procedurals. I’m not sure why.

9. What are you currently reading?

I just finished today’s New York Times. That’s as good as it will get for me today. Or this week. Or next month.

10. What is the best book you've read?

Wow. That changes with my mood, but today I would definitely have to say Watership Down by Richard Adams. What an amazing book that was. Anyone who hasn’t read it has really missed something special.

11. Any new projects coming up?

I’m in the process of sketching out my next novel, which will be released in 2014. I’ll also have a book out this fall.

Describe your book. And why readers should pick it up?

A Bride By Moonlight is the story of two scarred characters who find love and redemption through one another. I hope readers will pick it up because it is a deeply emotional read—and because it’s really, really hot.

Royden Napier, Baron Saint-Bryce, is tall, dark, and ruthless—and on the hunt for a dangerous beauty . . .
