Blog Tour: Roe Valentine

Realist, Dr. Carla Harris, believes that people create their own fate, through hard work and careful planning. She believes in playing things safe. But, while preparing for her upcoming nuptials she’s forced to confront the most reckless thing she’s ever done, her estranged husband, Jacob.
Idealist Jacob Moreau believes in soul mates, as much as he believes in saving endangered companies. When his long lost wife reenters his life seeking a divorce, he is convinced more than ever they are meant to be together. And he will do—and lose—anything to have her again.
She thought she had her life planned to perfection. He thought they made perfect sense together. Would marrying Jacob be the craziest thing she’s ever done, or divorcing him?

Title: Almost Married
Author: Roe Valentine
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 27 January 2013

About the Author:
Roe Valentine was born into the right family. Not only does the name Valentine suit her, but her grandmother, unknowingly, introduced the young Ms. Valentine to her first romance novel. She hasn’t read anything else since. She calls herself a romantic at heart and believes that love conquerors all.

The San Antonio native, who now lives in Houston, attempted to write her first contemporary romance novel when she was nineteen years old. That attempt didn’t take, but her story has a happy ending. She kept pursuing the dream until she landed her first publishing contract. Almost Married is her debut novel.

When not busy writing or reading love stories, Roe can often be found in a yoga class or chatting with friends at her favorite coffee shop. Enjoying margaritas with some girl-talk isn’t unusual for her either. For a night in, she watches reruns of her favorite TV shows and, of course, romantic comedies on her Roku, usually with a glass of wine.

Roe Valentine also LOVES talking to readers. You can contact her in the following ways:

What have you had published?
ALMOST MARRIED is my debut, but I have a second book coming out this year. It’s a 1920 historical romance called LOVE EASY.

What genre(s) of book do you write?
Contemporary romance, historical romance, erotic romance

What inspired you to write your first book?
I wrote my first contemporary romance when I was 19. I was inspired after I read this Harlequin Superromance called Too Many Bosses. While I loved reading historical romances, there was something about the contemporary setting that made me feel like I could be a heroine in a romance novel. So, I just cooked up a story that was rejected all over the place, and for good reason!

How long did it take you to write “Almost Married”?
Well, I don’t like to say this because I could get slapped, but it took me three whole weeks to write ALMOST MARRIED—it was called LEFT TO FOREVER back then. I haven’t been able to repeat that zeal again so far, so it still surprises me how fast I wrote it.

What is the working title of your next book(s)?
LOVE EASY will be published this year with the Wild Rose Press

Current titles for my next books are –
DEVIANT HEIRESS (book one of a trilolgy)

When and why did you begin writing?
I started writing when I was a kid, maybe 6 or so. I think I wrote to escape.

Do you self publish your books or go through an agency?
So far I am going the traditional publishing route. If I indie publish, it will be years down the line.

What part of writing books do you find the hardest?
Getting and stopping the momentum. Some days the words just don’t come out. Other days I can’t stop writing, but I have to because of other responsibilities.

What do you do in your spare time?
Usually go to Yoga, read at my favourite coffee shop, or have wine/margaritas with friends. I also like binge watching episodes of various shows. Right now I’m watching Dracula, Frasier (Daphne/Niles romance is one of my favourite), and any documentary/show about the Tudor Dynasty.

Who is your favourite author?
I have too many. Currently, I really like Sylvia Day.

What’s your favourite genre to read?
Romance of course!

Do you have any advice for other writers?
Keep writing.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Thank you for your time! I appreciate you having me on your blog.
