I’d like to welcome Beth Hale today as she gives us some insight on how she deals with writer’s block and her new book…
How I Deal
Writer’s block is an evil, evil reality in an author’s world. Sometimes it can be a mild annoyance, and other times it can be a crippling ordeal. I would like to share three of the ways I deal with writer’s block.
—I bake. Cookies and cakes; pies and bread. If the house is smelling good, I am trying to make my characters talk to me again.
—I clean. Obsessively clean. Everything. If my husband comes home to find his sock drawer ruthlessly organized, I am trying to discover which direction my book needs to take.
—Music. Yep. If you find me with my iPod turned up to max volume and dancing
around the house, I am trying to work out a difficult scene in my mind.
There are some other ways, but I can’t give away all my secrets. You might laugh at me if I did.
Beth Hale writes about what she knows: strong, Southern women and the men who love them. She twines believable characters, realistic circumstances, and heart-felt emotions together to create sassy, sexy contemporary romances. She draws inspiration from the everyday life problems we all face and expands them into vivid, interesting, hard-to-put-down stories.
She learned the joys of reading from her mother, and her love affair with books has only grown stronger. If she isn’t breathing life into a new character, she is trying to make a dent in her large to-be-read pile.
Beth lives in a small town in Mississippi with her own real-life hero and two children. They share the house with a variety of pets. When she is not working her “day job” as an E-911 dispatcher, you can find her curled up on her couch, with a blanket, a cup of coffee, and a notebook.
Walker and Lainey share one explosive night together, and he awakens to find her gone. Shrugging it off as just a glorious one-night stand, he accepts a new job in a new town, New Hope, Mississippi. That’s where he finds Lainey again. She just happens to be married to the Chief of Police—and Walker’s new boss.
Lainey is terrified that Walker will divulge their secret. If he does, Lainey is a dead woman. But despite the danger, she can’t forget the one passionate night she spent in Walker’s arms.
Walker demands answers from Lainey: What secret is she hiding? Why is she so afraid? And when people begin dying, he wants to get to the bottom of it. Why is the police chief trying to brush off the deaths? Why doesn’t he want Walker to work the cases? What kind of secrets is he hiding?
Drawn together, unable to deny their passion, they risk their lives. Lainey is trapped. Walker is determined to save her and uncover the truth. Can they expose the secrets before a ruthless man destroys any hope for a brighter future?
