What a Girl Wants Blog Tour 2014

I am delighted welcome to the blog







Synopsis

Tess Brookes was the girl with a plan. Now she's the girl with a choice. Should she stay in London and start her own advertising agency with her best friend and potential boyfriend Charlie? Or should she head to exciting Milan to pursue both a new career as a photographer and a new man, the enigmatic and elusive (and highly irritating) Nick? For the first time, Tess has to choose between the life she always dreamed of and a future she never imagined possible. With her heart and her head pulling her in different directions, Tess has to make a life-changing decision about What a Girl Wants.


Lindsey ~ welcome to Jaffareadstoo and thank you for inviting us to be part of your blog tour to celebrate


What do you love about writing?

I love telling stories, I love making up people and places and trying on lives that aren’t my own. It’s like reading a book but better, because you’re making it up as you go.


What scares you about writing?

The fear that it will go away. I get so scared that one day I’ll just wake up and I will have completely forgotten how to do it.


Do you write stories for yourself, or other people?

For myself. I've learned the hard way that you can’t please everyone and at the end of the day, I need to be able to close my laptop and know that I feel good about the work that I’m doing. It’s much easier to deal with the criticism if you know that you believe in what you’re doing.


When do you find the time to write, and do you have a favourite place to do your writing?

I write all the time! I've been on constant deadlines for maybe the last two and a half years so there aren’t many days when I'm not working away at something. Mostly I write in my apartment, parked on the sofa or curled up in bed. I spent an obscene amount of money on a beautiful desk to break my bad habits and I think I've sat at it maybe twice…


 Can you tell us what you are writing next?

Yes! Right now I’m finishing up the Jenny Lopez Saves Christmas ebook and then it’s onto my new novel, out next spring.





Lindsey ~ It's been a real pleasure to host this interview, thanks for taking the time to answer our questions.

 Jaffa and I wish you much success
with your blog tour.
