"When I'm not writing" with Lauren Smith

Today we're hosting Lauren Smith, who has a brand-new Christmas paranormal romance out today!  (Can you believe it's already time to read Christmas-y books?!?)


When I'm Not Writing Marie

Lauren SmithLike most writers who love what they do, I think about writing all day. I mean it, ALL DAY, because I genuinely love what I do and it’s like I’m constantly playing with imaginary friends. But there are times I can’t write or think about writing. At these times, I’m usually cooking a fun meal with my mother. She’s a fantastic cook and I’m always trying to pick up a recipe or two from her. The next thing I also do is watch the occasional Oklahoma State football game with my dad. We’re both graduates from that school and we bleed orange and black! Go Pokes!

In my downtown, when I’m letting the muse rest up before the next great story, I also love going out to the Tulsa Ballet with my friends. The ballet in my hometown is fantastic. They weave stories with elaborate sets and costumes and the dancing of course is superb! I’m a sucker for a good story if you can’t tell, and the ballet is one of the places to do it. When there’s no ballet on, I’m usually at the movies or out to dinner with my friends and catching up with them on what’s happening in their lives. Then it’s back to the writing or editing cave.

Here's the scoop on The Bite of Winter:

Bite of Winter Lauren SmithZoey Blake is about as far down on her luck as she can get. A car crash took her parents, leaving her destitute and on the street. When she’s attacked by another homeless person, her lifeblood drains away as her fading vision is filled with the face of a handsome stranger.

Ian Kennedy, a century old Irish vampire, never could resist rescuing a stray. As a few drops of his blood heals Zoey’s wounds, he realizes she’s a sweet, tempting, flesh-and-blood woman. But there’s one problem. Connor, who made Ian promise decades ago: no more mortal lovers.

After another vampire murdered his soulmate, Connor O’Shea swore never to let a mortal woman pay the price for loving him. Until he feels Zoey’s skin and tastes her lips. She makes him want to break that vow.

Zoey finds herself caught in their web of seduction. But as Christmas draws near and her grief deepens, happiness seems far out of reach. And Ian and Connor join forces to prove their love is sacred, special…and forever.

Warning: This book contains two scorching-hot Irish vampires, one lady with plenty of pluck but zero luck, naughty lingerie, and enough Christmas cheer to redeem even the darkest creatures.
