Win a $25 Gift Card - The Howling Heart Book Tour by April Bostic #Giveaway #PNR @SensuousPromos

Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She's climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father's death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn't get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.

Soon, she's engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv---wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.

Now, she must choose between the career she's always wanted and the love she's always dreamed.

Author Interview

Can you tell us a little bit about where you are from? I was born in Perth Amboy, NJ but grew up in Woodbridge, NJ until 6th grade when my parents divorced. Then my mother, sister, and I moved to Brick, NJ where I spent most of my teenage years. As an adult, I live in Perth Amboy again and I think it’s funny how my life has gone full-circle. I just hope I don’t die here. J
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book? I would write more about the history of Varulv, and include an epilogue which would explain what happened to Quinn after Riley and Paige left. I know many readers wanted to know more about her.
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? I acknowledge that I have a problem with telling and not showing in my writing. I’ve been struggling with that weakness for years, but I hope to overcome it one day. I know the only way I will is to write more.
Do you have a cover artist you’ve worked with that you’d like to give props to? Elena Dudina designed the cover for The Howling Heart, and I think it’s the best I’ve had for any of my books. If I ever write a sequel, I will definitely ask if she could design the cover. I don’t think anyone would be able to match her style of the first book.
Have you learned anything from writing your book(s)? If so, what was it? I learned not to let negative reviews bother me. I used to be very protective of my work and would get offended easily if someone said something I felt was untrue. But now, if I see a 1 or 2-star review, I don’t even read them. I just focus on the positive reviews which make me happy.
Do you have any advice to offer other writers? If you write a story, and you’re passionate about it, don’t give up on it. See it through to the end, because you’ll feel so good about yourself when you do. It’s a major accomplishment to finish a story, whether it’s a short story, novella, or novel. Don’t get discouraged by negative readers or reviews. Remember for every person who doesn’t like your work, there will be someone who does. Writing, like all forms of art, is subjective, and not everyone is going to like your work. Be brave and put yourself out there. It takes a lot of courage to be a writer or author. Don’t be afraid, because you’ll realize it’s not so scary once you do it.

Fun Author Interview

Who I am: A hopeless romantic who has never been in love, so I write about other people falling in love.
What genres I write in: Strictly romance, but several subgenres including urban fantasy, historical, paranormal, and contemporary.
Favorite genres to read: I only read romance, but prefer stories that have a supernatural, fantasy, or sci-fi element. I rarely read contemporary romances that can happen in everyday life.
Favorite TV shows: Game of Thrones, True Blood, Dominion, Penny Dreadful, Humans, and Outlander
Last movie I saw on the big screen: Crimson Peak
What’s on my Netflix list (to be watched): I only watched Netflix for Hemlock Grove. Since it’s been cancelled, I don’t have a reason to watch.
Coffee or Tea: Tea. Iced, never hot.
Chocolate or Caramel: No brainer. Chocolate!
Apple Cider or Pumpkin Spice: Both mixed together. I bet that would taste delicious, especially in a warm mug on a cold autumn day.
Rock N Roll or Country: Eh. Neither.
Lumberjack or Police Officer: Lumberjack, especially a sexy one!

Tropical Island or Winter Cabin: Definitely tropical island. I’d love to live somewhere that never gets snow.
