Introducing Sarah M Reed

This week I’d like to introduce you to fellow indie author, Sarah M Reed. I first came across Sarah’s work when I read If I Fell In Love last summer and I’ll be honest I fell just a tiny bit in love with Ray in that book. 

The lady herself has a new novel, The Boyfriend Pact, out today- yes, today! (The link to purchase it is below.)

So without further ado, here’s how my recent virtual interview with Sarah went :-

Tell me a bit about yourself. Have you always wanted to be a writer?

When I was seven years old, my first-grade teacher did a unit with our class on how books are created. We all wrote our own story and made it into a book. My book was entered into a schoolwide contest and won a blue ribbon for first place. I have been writing ever since!

Your latest book The Boyfriend Pact is due to be released on 21 Jan 2021. What can you tell me about it without giving away any spoilers?

“The Boyfriend Pact” is a best friends to lovers story that has a little steam and a whole lot of feels. It actually started as a novella that I wrote in high school twenty years ago, but when I dusted it off and set about trying to expand it into a full-length novel, it became something completely different. I love the way it turned out.

Which of your characters do you like most? Why?

Lauren, from my first book, “If I Fell in Love,” is my favorite because she is the most like me. However, Michael, the main character of “The Boyfriend Pact”, is the best book boyfriend a girl could have, so…

Is there one particular person who inspired you to write?

There have been many – starting with that first-grade teacher and on through the years. Recently, I’ve been inspired by the community of other female indie authors who have welcomed me and accompanied me along this journey.

A cruel question, but what’s your favourite book/who’s your favourite author?

Just one?? I am a big fan of rom-coms, so I love Jennifer Crusie, Jill Shalvis and Jo Watson. I’ve read pretty much all of their books. “Faking It” by Crusie and “Nobody but You” by Shalvis are the two books that I could (and have) read over and over again and never tire of.

Tell me a bit about your approach to your writing. Are you a meticulous planner or do you tend towards letting your characters go with the flow?

I am a go with the flow type of writer. I have the characters in mind ahead of time, and a general idea of where the book is heading, but sometimes the characters have their own ideas about things and I have learned to go with them. Their ideas are often better than mine…

I love to write outdoors. Where’s your favourite place to write?

Since I have two little kids to keep an eye on, I do most of my writing at the kitchen table. Keeps me right in the middle of the action!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

In terms of life? Be today who you want to be tomorrow. In terms of writing? Just get it on the page and then clean it up later.

How do you overcome writer’s block?

I have found that usually writer’s block happens when I am trying to make the story go in a direction it doesn’t want to go. If I take a step back, think it through, let me imagination go… oftentimes the right path will come to me.

So, what’s next creatively? Are you working on anything else just now?

I am writing a love story for two of the side characters from my previous books: Lexi from “The Boyfriend Pact” and Simon from “If I Fell in Love”. Then I have a romantic suspense I’d like to write, which will be similar in style to my second novel, “In Pursuit of Happily Ever After.” After that, I don’t know.

Let’s finish with a few of Sarah’s favourite things…

Favourite foodice cream

Favourite drinkjust water (boring, I know)

Favourite bandthe Beatles

Favourite holiday destinationDisneyland. Seriously. Disneyland at Christmastime is magical.

I was lucky enough to be given an ARC copy of The Boyfriend Pact a couple of weeks ago. I was curious right from the start about where this storyline was headed. Within a few pages I felt totally invested in these characters’ lives. This is one of these books you can hear in your head as you’re reading it. More importantly, its one you can feel too. I’m not about to give any spoilers away here but this tale is filled with love- the kind of love you find in friendships, family and in relationships. I love how Sarah captures the quaintness of Winston Prairie. I could also hear the buzz and smell the cooking in the scenes involving Michael’s family. Great read. Don’t believe me then check it out for yourself.

Allow me to introduce you to KM Lowe

KM lowe 1

Allow me to introduce you to fellow Scottish author K M Lowe.

 

Here’s what she has to say about herself in her author bio –

 

My name is Kelly, and I’m a 31 year old writer from Bonny Scotland. I am a dedicated wife and mother. My first book ‘The Smile’ was published in May 2014, and I am overjoyed at receiving great 5 star reviews. Since then, I’ve gone on to write in several different genres, including contemporary romance, PNR, and most recently, Romantic Suspense.

I’m a very keen reader and writer. I love to discuss the books and projects that I work on.

I love spending time with my husband and kids. We do a lot of walking and spend quality family days out. I have two dogs. I have a slight obsession of pugs. I would have a house full of them if I could. 🙂 I guess you can say I’m a crazy Scots woman.

And today is release day for her latest novel in the Guardian Shifters series!

Julian – A Clean Break (Book 7 of The Guardian Shifters)

The Guardians are back!

Julian has faced many ups and downs
throughout his life; he’s faced loss, grief, heartache, and the worst of all –
disloyal family. But, now that he’s away from everything negative that’s
happened in his life, he’s got a second chance. Only, a second chance is the
last thing on his mind when he’s suffering from a downward spiral into a dark
abyss. He doesn’t want a second chance. In fact, he doesn’t want a life at all.

The Guardian’s pack will stop at nothing
to help Julian. Even if that means pushing him into the arms of his human mate,
Kaira.

Kaira’s in danger from someone from
Julian’s past. Someone Julian and the other Guardian’s didn’t even know
existed. Now the race is on, not only to help Kaira, but to ensure that
shifters can work alongside humans.

Can Julian protect his mate?

Only time will tell if Julian has what
it takes to build bridges and move forward into the future, putting the past
behind him and living a happy life.
