You Write Where?!? By Rebecca Zanetti
Thank you for having me here at Literal Hotties today! Do you ever wonder where authors write? Before I started writing, I kind of pictured my favorite authors writing poolside at tropical resorts with umbrella decorated drinks next to them as sexy pool guys brought them chocolate covered strawberries.
In reality, we write wherever we can. At this moment, I’m sitting on a spotless white couch in a music room while my daughter takes her piano lesson. Her teacher is a retired music teacher whose house always smells like sugar cookies. They’re working on a lovely song I’ve never heard before, although there’s some fun clapping involved somehow. I truly haven’t figured out when to clap.
That’s okay, because I’m writing.
I also write at football, basketball, softball, and volleyball practices. Not during games, because I love watching the kids and my husband play. But practices are a great place to put on the headphones and just type away. My home office is wonderful to write in, but sometimes I have to just change environments. Of course, right now we’re moving houses, and I can’t find anything.
During the summer I often write at the lake, and during the winter, I’ve written in the ski lodge. For the record, it’s impossible to write on a snowmobile.
Last year I spent plenty of time writing on airplanes and in hotel rooms because I attended so many conferences and book signings. Plenty of RISING ASSETS was written in the south – both Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia. That’s a bit funny because Rising Assets takes place in Montana – a place close to my home and one I visited right after turning in the book.
I love Montana. Big spaces, large mountains, real cowboys. There’s nothing like a man who knows how to stride in cowboy boots and control a wild animal that hugely outweighs him. Also, not sure if you knew this, but cowboys can dance. Smooth and sexy…and they know how to lead.
In Rising Assets, hero Colton Freeze is a cowboy, a financial genius, and an organizer who has his life planned out perfectly. Heroine Melanie Jacoby is a free-spirited tomboy whose life has taken a definite left turn. They’ve been best friends for years until one explosive, fire-hot kiss throws them into chaos…because being best friends with benefits was never the plan.
I hope you enjoy Colton and Melanie’s red-hot romance, which is on a release sale of less than a dollar for a very short time. Thanks again for having me over to play today!
