Friday’s Post

A friend of mine reviewed my blog for me from the standpoint of marketing and suggested I talk a bit about my books. Who knew? LOL!

My new book that I just sent in to a publisher for consideration is a new direction for me. It is a romantic suspense, and what’s so cool about it (besides everything, LOL) is that it is set in an exotic locale I have visited: Monaco. Which in an odd way leads me back to my first book, Love Caters All. Okay, how? After all, Love Caters All is a “straight-up guilty pleasure” romance with a fair bit of sensuality. The new book is an action packed diamond heist set in Monaco with a PG rating (although we’ll see how it ends up by the time it is published). But the thing is I came up with that plot thinking about To Catch a Thief. I love Cary Grant. (Isn’t it great you can speak of late celebrities in the present tense because their movies live on?) I love his movies and he reminds me of my dad in many ways.

Well my first book was inspired by a Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn movie, one of my favorites, Philadelphia Story. Now, when you read it, you’ll say in what way is this possibly like Philadelphia Story? And those of you who have read it, right? Love Caters All is set in Maine,

whereas Philadelphia Story is set in, you got it, Pennsylvania. Different plot, different characters, different setting. But what I was going for was banter. I loved the banter in that movie, and that’s what I wanted. I wanted the book to be as light as a souffle, for the conflict to hinge on nothing more serious than shoes.

Here are some shots of Monaco, also by way of Morgue File, a great resource.

This castle plays a huge role in my new book

Most of the new book takes place at night.

Early dawn by the harbor, the characters have some exciting scenes here

I hope you have a great weekend. I’m happy to report in California, we are getting rain!

      Cindy, you’re back in So Cal? I need to check your blog. I’m so sorry. I had to really concentrate to get that book written and have neglected my friends’ blogs. I’ll go get caught up now.

      Don’t worry, we will find ways to get water in SoCal. There are solutions. It’s a good place capable of supporting a lot of people. There’s already de-sal in San Diego.

      Thank you so much for your supportive comments!!

      *heart* Nicci
