Don't they both deserve a second chance?

Fourteen years ago, one reckless act cost Ian Sylvestry everything, including the girl he planned to marry. Since then, he has fought hard to turn his life around. Returning to his Baltimore town after serving a prison term was the first step. Winning back Maleah Turner's trust is a far more daunting challenge. From their first sparks-flying reunion, it's obvious they still have powerful feelings for each other. In fact, they might be even stronger together now. But if their second chance is going to work, Maleah has to believe that Ian is a changed man. She really wants to believe…but she simply isn't convinced.

Teatime and Books Interviews Bestselling Author Loree Lough

We sat down with Bestselling author Loree Lough to discuss her latest release and just a chat about books!

1.     Describe a typical writing day. Are you a morning, afternoon, or night-owl writer?

In my crazy world, there is no ‘typical writing day.’ Since this is my full time job, I write constantly. When a book deadline looms, I write at all hours of the day—sometimes for 14-20 hours straight! Funny thing is, I don’t have a favorite time of day to work, although I’ll admit that I enjoy the silence that comes with writing beyond the midnight hour…

2.     Can you tell us about your current work-in-progress?

I’m working on three separate projects right now. The first is anything but a romance, even though there are romantic elements during several scenes. If asked to classify it as a specific genre, I’d choose ‘action-adventure, political thriller.’ The second is a historical, set in Idaho during the 1850s, shortly after the railroad made its way west. The third is something an editor (and my agent) asked me to write. It’s very hush-hush at this point, but I can say this: It’s a contemporary romance series that’s very different from other romances I’ve written!

3.     What inspires you when you’re writing?

The work, itself, inspires me. I love watching characters come to life. Love using words to draw pictures of them, and of the scenery around them.

4.     What’s your favorite item on your writing desk?

My dictionary! And if I have any in the house, chocolate!

5.     What’s your favorite genre and why?

I guess I’d have to say Romance. Even for writers whose work falls into other categories, there’s usually a romance of some sort in their stories. Same goes for movies. Songs. Stage plays.

6.     Any advice you have for a blossoming author?

You’ve no doubt already heard the usual advice: Read, read, read. Sign up for how-to write classes. Attend writers’ conferences. Join a critique group. While all of those things are helpful, you need to be alert for the stumbling blocks you’ll hit along the way. Some come in the form of distractions and interruptions (and you’ll just have to accept some of those). And some come in the form of snarky comments: “Are you STILL working on that book?” and “How nice that you have a sweet little hobby!” Still others fall into the so-called helpful advice category, when you show your story to your peers and hear “Close, but no cigar.” Most hurtful and damaging of all are naysayers who spout nonsense like “Fiction is a waste of time, for the writer and the reader. I only read things that broaden my life!” (I’ve yet to read a novel of any genre that didn’t add something positive to my life!) You need to develop a thick skin to deflect negative statements like that. But deflect it you must! Believe in yourself. Believe in your story. Believe in your talent. And never, ever, EVER quit!
