Karen Hawkins is best known for her many historicals but is making a name for herself in the contemporary world with her humorous and heartwarming new series set in the small fictional town of Glory, NC. When not busy writing books or blogging, Karen can be often be found adding to her extensive shoe collection, diligently researching hotties for FROS Sundays at The Goddess Blogs, spending time with her Hot Cop husband and sharing stories about her very funny granny. Please give Karen a warm Romance Dish welcome.
WARNING: CHARACTER UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Here are some of the questions I've been asked:
Will you write a book about Connie? She needs her own book!
I loved your poker game scene and Rene really intrigues me. Who is the hot blond he once had a fling with back in New Orleans? Will we ever get to meet her?
Who will be with Ethan? I wish he was my next door neighbor. Can he install tile?
Characters, characters, characters! I love it when my characters speak to my readers and draw them beyond the book and into the future where the next book is hiding. When the characters start talking to your audience beyond the book, then you know your series is taking on a life of its own.
Personally, I can't imagine NOT wondering what happens after I turn the last page, although I've heard that some people don't.
When you close a book, do you wonder what happens next? How the characters deal with this or that issue that might not be addressed in the book? Where they might go or do? If they have kids or not? Or, when you close a book, do you let the story go and move on to another?
Karen has graciously offered signed copies of TALK OF THE TOWN to two randomly selected commenters from today's blog. Thank you, Karen!
