I’m thrilled as can be to have fellow Decadent Publishing author Catherine Peace as my guest blogger today, to talk about her new 1Night Stand, COMPLETE ME, scheduled to release on March 21. As a special treat, Cate’s decided to interview the book's bad girl, Joss Richards! And give good stuff away!
Take it away, Cate & Joss!
Catherine: I’ve been trying to let everyone get to know the characters in my new release, Complete Me, and there’s one that I haven’t yet interviewed, mostly because she’s the thorn in my hero’s side.
C: Well you are.
J: You made me this way.
C: Okay, Jessica Rabbit. Anyway, say hello to Jocelyn Richards. Whoa, you guys even have the same initials.
J: Wow. Thanks for the warm welcome. Really. Also, are you drunk?
C: Not yet. Now, let’s get this started. *Shuffles notes, looks over prepared questions* Seriously. What is your deal?
J: Excuse me?
C: What is your deal? Ten years off and on with Ty? You can’t let him go. Why is that?
J: And here I thought we’d be talking about my favorite foods or something. *Sighs* Fine. Whatever. My “deal” is that I was young and stupid when I fell in love with him, and then I woke up one day and couldn’t understand why I didn’t love him anymore. I had a connection with Anderson, Dejected’s drummer, and I always had, but I wanted Ty. And then I got him.
C: And the fun dropped out.
J: Yes. But I just couldn’t let him walk away. Even after the band broke up.
C: Ty actually gives you a lot of credit with the band’s success.
J: Does he. How sweet.
C: He said you got Dejected to Bonnaroo. How’d you manage that?
J: I know people. Little known fact: My dad was a touring musician with Brice Springsteen for a while. I made a lot of connections just through that.
C: So music’s in your blood.
J: Yeah. It definitely is.
C: So what are you doing now?
J: Andy’s still touring in Europe with his new band. I’m spending most of my time at home.
J: What are you implying?
C: Nothing…. Nothing at all. Tell me something, though. You come from a musical family. Have you ever thought about starting your own band?
J: Sometimes I dream about it. I have a couple of friends I still jam with from time to time, but it’s nothing serious. We don’t leave Rachel’s apartment.
C: But…if you could…
J: *Cocks eyebrow* Do you have something up your sleeve?
J: You are just full of cryptic this week, aren’t you?
J: This isn’t helping my hangover.
C: You shouldn’t have gotten drunk when you knew you’d be having an interview. God, Joss.
J: Shut it.
C: Then I guess I’ll just dispose of any notes I’ve made….
J: I’M SORRY. PLEASE DON’T DO THAT.
C: *Grins* We’ll see.
J: I hate you.
C: One more question. If you ever saw Ty again, what do you think would happen?
J: Oh no. You’re not.
C: Just answer the question.
J: I don’t even…. Probably nothing good. Not after the way he ended things.
C: Good to know. Thanks for joining me, Jocelyn.
J: Wait, that’s it? Can’t I ask a question?
C: Technically, you just asked two. That’s it for us today. Be sure to stick around through the necessary details to get to the giveaway form at the end! Up for grabs: a $25 iTunes gift card, a free copy of the book, and a Complete Me-inspired t-shirt!
J: You’re really just going to—.
C: Here’s the blurb!
A romance author who needs to love….
Best-selling romance author Claire Ergleston confines her passions to the pages of her books. When she receives a 1Night Stand date ‘to give her something to talk about in interviews,’ can she let herself be swept away?
A rock star who needs to let go….
The past has a chokehold on former rock star Ty Krause. Instead of killer tunes, he kills time writing passable songs for a British boy band and his nights wishing he had the balls to say goodbye. In a last ditch effort, he signs up for 1Night Stand, thinking that a night of no-strings-attached sex will help him break the leash of his past.
From the moment Claire and Ty meet, sparks fly—but can they overcome their pasts or will their potential love story end on a sour note?
