Friday 5: Margo Bond Collins

Please welcome Margo Bond Collins to the blog today. Thanks for joining us, Margo!

What kind of books do you read for fun?
I read the same kind of books I write: romance, urban fantasy, and mystery. I teach college literature classes, so I get my fill of serious literature there; I like for my entertainment reading to be light and fun!

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
Coffee. Seriously, you don’t want to try to talk to me before I have coffee in the morning.

If a genie granted you three wishes, what would they be?
Ugh. This question isn’t fair! On the one hand, I’d love to ask for perfect happiness, but I suspect that wouldn’t be good for my fiction, since I (like most writers) draw on experiences, both good and bad. Anyway, don’t those genie stories always end badly for the wisher? Thanks, but I think I’ll pass. . .

What is best writing advice you can give?
The very best advice I ever got was just this: keep writing new things. Always have a work in progress. Finish writing a piece, do a quick edit, and submit it somewhere for publication. Then move on to the next project. Don’t wait to hear back—that way lies madness! If it’s rejected (and often it will be; that’s the nature of writing for publication), don’t let it get you down. Just send it out again and go back to your work in progress.

Can you share a little about your current release with us?
Absolutely! When gift-shop owner Kylie Andrews was dumped at the altar, she took her Mexican Caribbean honeymoon alone—and when a handsome stranger offered to take her mind off her problems, she was happy to spend a week with him. But when she got off her plane in Texas and saw her picture in a tabloid, she realized that she had been with rising country star Cole Grayson. Now Cole is in town for a concert and determined to win her back—but she’s just as determined to keep him at arms’ length. The child of a former rodeo star, she doesn’t want to end up in the spotlight—and as a musician, that’s right where Cole wants to be.

Here’s the official blurb, and more information about me:
Taming the Country Star Cover


He’ll do anything to win her heart. She’ll do anything to keep him away.

Country star Cole Grayson is in town, and Kylie Andrews is less than thrilled. As if months of changing the radio station and tearing down his posters weren’t bad enough, now she has to deal with a town of fans swarming toward the man who deceived her the year before. But when Kylie’s eyes meet Cole’s again, she can’t deny the electric chemistry that drew her to him the first time around.

Cole Grayson is on a mission. Ever since Kylie left him, he hasn’t been able to forget her sweet country smile. After writing a song just for her, he sets off for her hometown to prove he’s not the player she thinks he is. But as much as Cole can’t forget her, Kylie wonders if she can forgive him…
