INTERVIEW with Amanda Ashley

Tuesday , Jan. 26th, marks the release date of EVERLASTING KISS by Amanda Ashley.  She was kind enough to do an interview with My Overstuffed Bookshelf for you to read and enjoy! So let's give her a warm welcome and get started!

MOB: Thank you so much for coming Amanda and let's get started!
To start off can you tell the readers a little about yourself?

AA:     Gosh, there's not a lot to tell. I married my high school sweetheart. We have 3 grown sons, a Pomeranian, a tortoise, and a wild sparrow that I raised from a baby. I was fortunate that I didn't have to work when my kids were little. I loved being a stay-at-home Mom and highly recommend it. I love reading, writing, walking my dog, going to the movies, and collecting Star Wars and Beauty and the Beast things.  

MOB: Can you tell us a little about your new or current releases?

AA:     You know, it's easy to write the books but telling about them is difficult. I've never been able to do it coherently in a few sentences, so I suggest checking out my web site where readers can see covers, read reviews and excerpts. 

MOB: When you are not writing, what kind of books do you like to read? Do you have any favorite authors that are must reads?

AA:    I read mostly paranormal romances. My fav authors, in no particular order, are Charlaine Harris's Sookie books, Patricia Brings' Mercy Thompson series, Maggie Shayne, Jim Butcher's Dresden files, Lori Handeland's Nightcreature books, Patricia Simpson, and Michelle Rowen. Oh, and Kay Hooper. I just finished her book, Blood Sins, and loved it.  

MOB: What are 3 things that are "must haves" for you when you sit down to write a new book?

AA:         Chocolate, chocolate, and chocolate. 

MOB: List your favorites:

Snack- tangerines
Drink- hot chocolate 
Perfume- allergic
Candy- dark chocolate Dove bars 
Color- blue

MOB: I am a fly on your wall today. What would I see in the day of Amanda Ashley?

AA:    LOL. Depends on the day. Generally, I get up, feed the animals, feed my husband, read the paper, read my email, run whatever errands need to be done, clean the house. I usually do most of my writing at night while my husband watches football, baseball, basketball, golf, old westerns and the news. But I have been known to write most of the day and night from time to time.  

MOB: Which one of your books was your favorite book to write and why?

AA:      That is such a hard question! I think maybe Embrace the Night because it was such a change of pace for me after writing so many historicals, and because I adored my hero. Plus, it was fun setting it in the past and the present.  

MOB: Where can we purchase your books?

AA:     Bookstores You can also purchase them on Amazon or from my publishers online



MOB: Do you have a blog or website that your readers can keep up with you and your books?

AA:       www.amandaashley.net
       I update my page every few days. I also run a monthly contest and give away one of my books, covers, and bookmarks. Nothing required except to sign my guestbook. I also have a newsletter I send out, usually when I have a new book coming out or if something really exciting happens.
