Jane Wakely is here! And she brought a shifter!

Hi pals!

My dear friend Jane Wakely has written a book, after being such a wonderful hostess and hosting so many authors on her blog! That's right- check it out at http://www.janewakely.blogspot.ca/.
I couldn't be more excited! And it sounds so delicious, with a sexy mountain lion shifter!

Please help me welcome her to my Room, and read on for our interview and more info on A Place To Belong!

1) What is your favourite book of all time and why?

LOL...This question is impossible to answer! I have so many books that are favorites and lots of times certain scenes will stick with me. When I reread, I don’t usually read the whole book over, but go to my fave scenes and reread them. So many different writers (romance) have written great moving pieces that I could never choose just one book.

2) Describe your ideal hero or heroine (details please! *wink wink*)

My ideal hero would be tall, over 6’4” and blond. (Often times I write my heroes blond and have to change them to mix it up a bit!) There aren’t enough blond heroes IMO! LOL Dark green or dark blue eyes would be awesome and he’d have to have a sexy scar somewhere visible—and also sexy tats! He’d also have huge biceps and eight pack abs!

3) If you could share a romantic evening with any character from romance literature (any genre), who would it be and what would you do to him/her (ahem! With him/her)?

Hmmm...this is tough. Just one character? LOL I’d probably choose Rhage from LOVER ETERNAL by JR Ward. Unfortunately, we would probably just have dinner because he has Mary and I’m married. However, if those factors were taken out of the equation, then I can’t list the details here! ;)

4) What comes first for you: plot or character?

It varies. Sometimes plot comes first and other times the characters do. Sometimes they come together and both completely change when I’m done with their story. Sometimes I think of a character I’d like, but I can’t figure his plot (or the other way around.) I have no consistency here!

5) Who is, hands down, the sexiest actor of all time?

Gosh, these questions are really tough, Rosanna! ;) I wouldn’t say of all time, because I’ve seen him in things that I didn’t care for, but when I think of the sexiest actor/character, I always think of Orlando Bloom as Will Turner. And second place? OB as Legolas!

6) Who is your favourite author and why?

Like choosing a fave book, I can’t narrow this one down to just one. I read a lot of romance sub genres, but I really like paranormal/shifters. The shifter worlds created by Dana Marie Bell, Crystal Jordan, Cynthia Eden and Rebecca Royce are some of my favorites. 

7) What is on the horizon for you? Any interesting news or books we should know about?

My shifter romance, A PLACE TO BELONG, released from Silver Publishing on August 25, 2012.  This is book one of a three book series and I’m working on book two now.

Here’s the blurb:

Maggie, a professional photographer, has always been a loner. After spending the day on Mount Brighton, her car dies. Setting out to walk for help, she encounters a mountain lion intent on keeping her where she is.

Chris is a mountain lion shifter on his way home. Nearing the road, a car catches his attention. Intense feelings arise as he realizes the woman inside the stranded car is his mate. He has to find a way to stop her from leaving.

Maggie and Chris share a strong connection, but Maggie isn’t sure if she should trust it. She has to decide whether or not to stay with Chris or let her insecurities and her past rule her future.

Check it out on the Silver Publishing website:

Thank you, Rosanna, for being a wonderful host! :)

    Orlando Bloom is smoking hot.

  5. Hi Savannah~
    Thank you! I love shifters too! I hope you enjoy A PLACE TO BELONG! :)

    Hi Brenda~
    *sigh* I love OB! LOL Thank you for visiting today! :)


  6. Yum...Will/Legolas/Orlando...whatever he's called. He's so yummy. We just have to fatten him up a bit!

  7. LOL! I agree Rosanna--and maybe make him a couple inches taller? Or is that asking too much? :P He's still yummy though...! ;)


  8. Congrats on the new book, Jane! It sounds fabulous!
    I love shifter books too, especially cats. ;)
    I am going to pick up my copy now. How many books do you have planned for the series so far? Also, how do you anticipate their releases, several months apart or longer? Thank you for sharing. And...good luck with sales!

  9. Hi Tina~

    Right now I have three books planned and I'm in the middle of book two. I've been working on some other projects in between, so it's taking a bit longer than I planned for me to finish it--then the publisher has a time frame we have to work with. There will be a few months in-between, but hopefully no more than six! (And hopefully sooner for book 3!)

    Thanx for visiting--and picking up my book! I hope you enjoy it! :)
