Author Tami Lund is this week’s guest at An Author’s Desk. Tami who writes contemporary and paranormal romance is published with Liquid Silver Books, Crimson Romance, Soul Mates Publishing. She is also self-published. Tami’s book, The Resort, the first book in a self-published series, won third place in the Great Expectations Contest hosted by the North Texas Romance Writers of America. Into the Light, a paranormal romance that was recently published by Liquid Silver Books, won first place in the On The Far Side Contest, which is hosted by the Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal chapter of RWA. Thank you to Tami for sharing a bit about her writing style and area and introducing her new book from Silver Publishing, Love Gumbo.
I love to be outdoors, preferably at the beach. There is nothing more peaceful and relaxing than lounging in an Adirondack chair with my laptop in my lap, my toes in the sand (or in the water, if it’s warm enough), and a glass of wine within easy reach. Okay, coffee, since I am, without question, a morning writer. I also write better when listening to music and drowning out all other distractions (read: kids, husband). Sometimes, on the weekends, I get really lucky and manage to distract myself so much that I’ve written well into the afternoon, at which point I trade the coffee for wine.
Love Gumbo is part of a new line of short stories offered through Liquid Silver Books, called Afternoon Delights. I originally wrote this book for an anthology call from another publisher. They were looking for short stories involving animals bringing the protagonists together. I was just about to press send when I noticed the fine print: male/male protagonists only. Oops! I loved this story, though, and knew I had to publish it anyway. Liquid Silver decided to create the Afternoon Delight concept at just the right moment. Release date: August 25th
In her new contemporary novel, Love Gumbo. Tami has mixed the perfect ingredients to bring you a fun and flirty romance.
Jake just wants a new job. Natalie just wants her restaurant to succeed. The dog just wants a new home. A guy, a girl, and a dog named Gumbo.
