Interview with a Man Who Has A Wicked Past @rebeccajvickery @KMNbooks #blackfriday

Let's give a warm welcome to Gerald Costlow and his character from A Wicked Past, Archie Taylor!

Karen: Good morning, Archie and Gerald.
Archie: Good morning, ma'am.
Gerald: Good morning. I hope you don't mind, but I wanted to let the readers know that for Black Friday I'm giving away 3 eBook copies of A Wicked Past to 3 lucky readers who leave a comment. 

Karen: Fantastic! Readers, don't forget to leave your email so Gerald can contact you if you should win!

Karen: Now for the interview you all been waiting for. Archie, describe yourself in four words.
Archie: I am a gambler.

Karen: What is it about your love interest (Nancy Darling) that makes you crazy in a good way?
Archie: I find myself wanting to be the “gentleman of good character” she mistakes me for.

Karen: What about your love interest makes you crazy in a bad way?
Archie: I end up taking crazy risks to help a woman I’ve just met.

Karen: What are your greatest challenges in that world?
Archie: Escaping my wicked past.

Karen: What do you fear the most?
Archie: That Nancy Darling will reject me once she discovers I’m a thief and a liar.

Karen: How did you get together with your heroine in “A Wicked Past”?
Archie: Pure luck brought me to her door in the middle of a blizzard.

Karen: What makes you perfect for each other?
Archie: We both follow our own rules in spite of what society thinks but both of us yearn for someone to share our life.

Karen: Tell me about your antagonist in this book “A Wicked Past”. Is he/she evil or just confused?
Does he/she have any good points? What ties you together?

Archie: Oh, there’s no doubt in my mind that Marshall Dixon is a stone-cold killer. He doesn’t go out of his way to hurt people, but he won’t lose a night’s sleep over your death if you cross him, either. I stole his treasure map so you might say I’ve gotten on his bad side.

Karen: That concludes the interview. Archie, it was nice to get to know you better and I sure hope everything works out for you and your gal. Gerald, thanks so much for bringing Archie with you and not Marshall Dixon. lol

About A Wicked Past
Nancy Darling is enduring a Nebraska winter alone in her isolated farm. Two men, each trying to escape a wicked past, are in a race to find hidden Confederate gold.  When they arrive one Christmas, will she find the fallen angel she's dreamed of or face a devil in disguise?

Gerald and Archie,

I'm so glad you could join us today.
Archie, you are indeed a character!

I just loved your tale. It had all the great qualities that make an interesting story. Adventure, suspense, a bad guy who has a chance to redeem himself, and of course romance—all this makes for one entertaining story!

Your book sounds interesting. I love westerns and romance. :)

Hi, Karen,

I agree with Cathy: a very interesting post. I love Westerns that are full of adventure and romance. Nice that you spotlighted a male author too.

Thanks for stopping by and responding. I know lots of guys who enjoy a good love story and I figure since I've been married for over twenty years, I can afford to come out of the closet on being a big romance junky.

I loved your story. Lots of action and cute romance. I could see a guy liking it, too.

Karen Michelle Nutt said... Best Blogger Tips

Of course guys like a good romance. I've been married for 28 years. My husband will watch romantic movies with me. :) He likes While You Were Sleeping, Kate and Leopold, and Overboard... Just to name a few.

It's a real man who comes out of the closet and admits they like romantic tales. lol
