The Quirks of Characters and Writers

Rebecca-4

With: Rebecca Zanetti

**Giveaway Alert!**

 

Hey all!  Don’t forget to enter the rafflecopter giveaway at the bottom of the page!  I’m so excited to be here at Just Paranormal Romance celebrating the release of Wicked Edge!  The hero in Wicked Edge is Daire Dunne, who’s a tough witch enforcer on a Harley…and is totally grumpy.  The heroine is a bit of a surprise.  Cee Cee is a wild card who drugs Daire, steals from him, and then likes to rob banks.  Of course, they’re the perfect match!  They just don’t know it right away.

 

I had so much fun writing Daire and Cee Cee’s story.  Being a writer, I’m rather…well…quirky, much like Cee Cee.  That woman is beyond quirky, to be honest.

 

  1. I have to wear socks to write. Big, comfy, thick socks that actually don’t need to match each other.  Even in the heat of summer, if I’m writing, I have my comfy socks on.

 

  1. I have dog hearing. Seriously, those dog whistles kill me.  Most laptops have a high-pitched whine from the motor or fan or whatever it is.  If I’m on my laptop, I have my earphones on to escape the horrible noise.

 

  1. My best ideas usually hit me while I’m on the treadmill. No, I’m not one of those people who likes to work out.  Not at all.  But, while plugging away mile after mile (okay, step after step), ideas come to me.

 

  1. I fall off the treadmill at least once a month. Being a klutz, this isn’t a surprise to me.  Now I have a treadmill at my house, so if I trip, usually no one else sees.  But I used to go to a gym and I have fallen in front of a row of people before.   My friend looked down and said, “So, I guess you’re done for the day?” 

 

  1. I get lost in writing and often forget about real life while doing so. Unfortunately, this means that the UPS guy has seen me in my jammies, hair in scrunchie, no makeup on…because the doorbell has dinged and I’ve run upstairs to answer the door, forgetting that I haven’t quite prepared for the day yet.  (Even though it might be noon because I was just going to write a sentence and then get dressed…and got lost instead.)

 

Thanks again for having me over!  I was asked what’s next for me. I’m working on a new series called Scorpius Syndrome.  The first book is MERCURY STRIKING, and it releases in January.  The series is post-apocalyptic, gritty, and very sexy.  The hero is Jax Mercury, who’s a former L.A. gang member turned soldier, who has taken over LA to protect his small group of survivors from a bacterial infection.  The heroine is Lynne Harmony, the former head of the CDC’s Infectious Disease Department.  Oh, and she has a blue heart now.

If you love the Dark Protectors, these wicked hot Realm Enforcers are for you!

Daire Dunne is more than ready to take a quick break from his duties as a Coven Nine Enforcer. When he spots a sexy blonde across a Titan’s of Fire party, it’s not long before she’s on the back of his Harley on the fast track to his apartment. Unfortunately, one overheated kiss in, the woman drugs Daire and steals valuable files that can’t fall into enemy hands. The second he comes to, the hunt is on…

Now that Cee Cee has the information to take down an enemy that destroyed her family, she can implement her perfect plan for revenge. Nothing will stop her, not even a shockingly sexy enforcer barging into her life. Not even the spectacular, fire-branding sex engulfing them. But if Daire ever figures out who her family really is, all bets are off…
