Silver Dagger Tours + Gieaway + Guest Post:: Holiday of the Heart

Holiday of the Heart
by Angel Wolfe
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Author Morgan Paige has had more than her share of ups and downs; but can a long-term affairturn into something more, or will the flame smolder only to be fanned by a new love? After a horrendous Valentine's Day nightmare, and a hot and steamy reunion, Morgan and Ricky part ways only to have Ricky show up several months later asking her to wait for him.

 The problem is, Morgan has already been waiting for years. How much is too much? Will their romance survive yet another separation or will someone new fill the aching hole in her heart?

Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story? Definitely! My characters tell me their story, I just get to tweak it a bit. I think that’s part of why it takes me so long to get my stories written. I have to wait for them to show me the way. I’ve tried to force my ideas into the story, but it always turns out bad and I end up spending days, weeks or months rewriting. It’s easier to wait and see what happens then try to guess and have to make changes. 

Convince us why you feel your book is a must read. I feel that my book isn’t as predictable as a lot of books I have read. My characters are relatable and realistic, and the situation is one that I could see happening in real life. I try to write my stories so that the reader feels that they are in them. They feel like they are the main character and see the events happening almost as if they are happening to them.

Have you written any other books that are not published? I have a new one coming out for Halloween. I also have about 14 pending in various stages of completion. I don’t think I will ever be a one at a time kinda person. When I have an idea, I start writing and go as long as it stays fresh in my mind. Then I go back to other partials only to pick it back up again when something new shows itself to me.

How long have you been writing? Since I was in Jr. High.

Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write? Most of my characters are there from the start but sometimes I have a new guy show up and it’s kinda like ‘Hey, where’d he/she come from?’

What kind of research do you do before you begin writing a book? This totally depends on the book. I try to have the setting already mapped out in my head when I start writing. Other bits and pieces are usually researched as I write. For Moonlight Immortals, I did quite a bit of research on the cars that were driven, the clothing that was worn, the technology available things like that associated with the time period of the book.

Do you see writing as a career? I would one day love for it to be my career but for now, its what I do to get through the bad days, and to “get away” from reality now and then.

Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?
I read a ton! I love pretty much anything romance. Historical, Western, Paranormal, Contemporary, Holiday and even erotica. I definitely love a hot cowboy probably the best, but I read the back of the book and can pretty much get hooked on anything that’s well written.

Angel Wolfe was born in Muscatine, Iowa and learned to read by the age of three. When she was five, she moved with her family to northwest New Mexico where by the time she reached the age of eleven, she began reading romance novels pilfered from her mother.

In high school, Angel often sat with the textbook open and a romance novel sitting inside it. After high school, she began writing stories in notebooks because she didn't own a typewriter.

 Later, Angel neared completion of her first novel, Damaged Hearts but she couldn't bring herself to end it (until recently!) Since that time, she has written four short stories, a contemporary holiday novella, a historical romance novel, a contemporary novel ,and is nearing completion on a paranormal romance novel.

When she's not writing or curled up with a book or watching college football, Angel loves to go to local dirt tracks and watch racing. One of her greatest dreams is to find herself listed on the New York Times bestsellers list.

 Angel still lives in New Mexico with her husband, her son, and her dog, a little Muppet with teeth, otherwise known as Rusty.
