Special Guest - Roni Adams!

Hello Folks,

Please welcome Roni Adams in her first of a weekly visit talking about her books!

Roni Adams currently resides in a tiny hamlet in Upstate New York. She’s been married for 24 years and has three sons, ages 13, 19, 21. Although, she’s been writing since she was 7 and has the “wonderful” short stories to prove it, she admits that she took a long leave of absence after getting married. When she finally returned to writing, it was as if a dam had burst and stories flew out of her into the computer. She sold several short stories to publishers Dorchester and Adams Media where she was published in True Confessions, True Romance, and A Cup of Comfort for Women in Love.

She released her first novel, “Beauty and the Geek” with The Wild Rose Press in the fall of 2007 and has steadily had two to three publications out each year since that time. She loves writing cowboy stories the best and is in the middle of a six book series called “The Double B”. Two of the books are already out with The Wild Rose Press and a third is due ou in July.

Roni also is excited to be part of a Yellow Rose anthology set in Wayback, Texas due to be released in June. “I got to write a great story alongside my two buddies, Stacy Dawn and Cindy Pape. It was a lot of fun and a honor to write with such wonderful authors. “Return to Wayback” is due out in June from the Yellow Rose line.

These days Roni juggles her time between writing and helping out other authors. “I’m a firm believer in the circle of writing; the experienced writers and authors have an obligation to help the newer writers as they come along and as you move through the circle. If it wasn’t for my early critique partners such as Jo Barrett, and my friends at the San Antonio Romance Author’s chapter, I never would have learned what I’ve learned and gotten his far.”

You can contact Roni at roni@roniadams.com She loves to hear from readers. Her blog is also available at http://www.roniadams.blogspot.com/

Now a little about Beauty and the Geek!

This book is a fun, sassy romance between two old friends. It has received fantastic reviews from several review sites such as Night Owl Romance which gave it five owls and Two Lips review site which gave it 4 lips. As my first full length novel to release in publication I couldn’t be more thrilled!

Blurb: Louie and Becky have known each other their whole lives but when a special project throws them together will Becky discover that Louie has more to offer her than just free computer repairs?

Beauty and the Geek -Available in ebook and print from The Wild Rose Press!

Well Folks, hope you enjoyed Roni's first visit....join me next Thursday (11th) when she returns with another of her books and don't forget this week's Saturday Spotlight with Danielle Thorne!

Until later....take care and Be BLESSED!

Hi Roni and Pam,
Nice interview. Unusual having a "geek" as a hero, but it sounds a goodread.

Roni and Pam:

Good morning! Geeks are fun sometimes. My youngest son is a geek, he is also gorgeous. Hee hee.

Great interview! I love seeing where an author has shown "geeks" are real people. After all, The Professor on Gilligan's Island was needy. :) And being scientifically nerdy, I appreciate a tale showing real issues for geeks.

Catherine Bybee said...

Great interview ladies.. Love that cover, Roni. Geeks are often the sexy ones in the bunch... they just don't advertise it! lol

Mary Ricksen said...

Great idea, the geek as a hero! My kinda guy. The good thing about the geek is he doesn't have that attitude thing.

Roni Adams said...

Thanks all. I have to admit that my hero, Louie, is a geek but he's a really cute geek. He's sort of stuck with that label since his school days and we all know its not always easy to leave those labels behind. Some of this is in my book; since Becky was the former prom queen and he's the geek. It takes a while for both of them to realize that they aren't in high school anymore and those labels don't apply to them now.

The cover was done by RJ Morris and if I may say so; I think its one of her best!


Donna B said...

Beauty and the Geek sounds cute! I'll just have to check it out. Nice post Roni, I thought all your stories were cowboy stories...guess I was wrong. I understand about the long break in writing. I think most mothers leave it behind during their children's growing years. I did too.

I'll be looking forward to your next post.

Anne Carrole said...

I've read and enjoyed your cowboy books Roni but haven't read Beauty and the Geek yet--sounds good!

Rebecca J. Clark said...

Fun post! And I agree that this is a fabulous cover. Fun & sexy, just like the story. I love geek stories--tried writing one myself, but I couldn't quite capture my inner geek enough to make it work. :)

Congrats with all your success.

Hi Roni and Pamela! Nice post. I do love those cowboy stories.

Hi Roni and Pam. Great interview. Geeks are people, too! :-)

Roni, What an attractive book cover. Matches nicely with the blurb. I'll have to check it.

Pam, your new grandson is absolutely adorable.
