Welcome

FoX Friday with Priscilla Oliveras + enter to win!

Welcome to another edition of FoX Friday, my lovelies! This fall, we’ve had some truly amazing guests join us here and today’s author is no exception. Priscilla Oliveras is one of the loveliest people I’ve ever met, and I’m proud to call her my friend.

Priscilla is here with her critically-acclaimed romance, Their Perfect Melody. It’s the third book in her Matched to Perfection series, which  follows the lives of the Fernandez sisters. Before we meet la familia, let’s get to know Priscilla!

Bienvenido, Pris! I’m so glad to finally have you here for FoX Friday. Congratulations on all your recent success. It must feel so good, especially as a relatively new author. How did you come to write romance?

I started out writing short stories in high school and was encouraged by my English teacher. Years later, as a young wife, mom, and college coed, I had to take a semester off school due to a short-notice military move. Needing something to keep my brain challenged, I decided try writing a full-length novel. Needless  to say, it wasn’t as easy as I had expected. 😀

I can imagine, lol. Who were some of the early authors you read in the genre?

As a young reader, Victoria Holt gothic romances were my absolute favorites. The “feel” of her books, the emotion and atmosphere really called to me as a reader. Later, I swooned over Jude Deveraux novels, collected all of Suzanne Brockmann’s Troubleshooter series (Cosmo Richter in Hot Target is one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends), and fell in love with Nora Roberts’ Chesapeake Bay trilogy (though I have yet to read the 4th one that released later).

A very special FoX Friday with Sophia Soames + a giveaway!

My lovelies! I’m excited. Can you tell? This week, not only am I able to introduce a debut FoX to you but also a debut author! I’ve known Sophia Soames for about two years, though we only met in person earlier this year. Sophia was just as delightful as I thought she would be, and she is a hell of a storyteller. I’m so glad she took the plunge into publishing.

Before we get to her debut release, Little Harbour, let’s learn a little about Sophia herself! I spoke with her while she had a layover in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. 😀

See details below about a fabulous giveaway!

I’m so excited to have you here, luv. Grattis!
Takk!!! Thank you so much for having me, it’s a huge honor to be a guest on your blog! [Read More…]
