Today we are thrilled to welcome back Erin Unger as she answers some tough questions and shares the first page of her latest release, Fateful Fall.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
There’s nothing like that moment when an intriguing idea or scene bubbles up into my consciousness. I can’t hold in the gleeful giggles that tumble out as I try to get it down as quickly as possible.
What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
Leave a review! It’s the single most important thing a writer can have from their fans.
Do you have a dedicated place to write, or a nook or corner of a room, or the kitchen table?
The other week, I finally got my own office in my house. It’s a little bare and void of personality still, but it’s mine. And I love it. I’m getting so much more writing accomplished. Now, if only the cats would stop knocking and whining at the door. They’re worse than my kids, sometimes.
Sneak peak at Fateful Fall
The orange foliage of the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains fluttered in contrast to the purple of the dying sky above the clearing where Ava and her business partners stood with their mouths agape.
Ava clenched her teeth to keep her voice from rising. “What. Is. That? I can’t believe Mr. Connell expects us to stay in whatever it is for the next week.”
If the owner wasn’t willing to front them a better place than this, then maybe it wasn’t worth the much-needed paycheck for the private investigation job.
Shauna strutted in front of Ava and Jillian. She tossed her glossy black hair over her shoulder as her brown eyes twinkled. “It’s a yurt, you know? A round tent. Semi-permanent. Bigger than a hotel room. See, I thought we’d be able to stay under cover better out here.”
The yurt’s ripped screen door hung ajar. The corner of Ava’s eye started to twitch. “So you changed our accommodations to this?”
Jillian touched Ava’s arm with light fingers. “Umm, she might be right. This is a little secluded. Might make things easier.”
How was Ava supposed to relax when not working the case? Her words torpedoed out, “I can’t imagine this thing has indoor plumbing.” Now she’d have to walk outside to use the restroom, where wild animals could snack on her?
Erin Unger weaves romantic suspense tales long after the midnight oil has burned out. And her fast-paced life sometimes rivals the suspense in her books thanks to a house full of teens. Her first novel, Fateful Fall (Worthington Detective Agency Book 1), released on August 2. She illustrated Memphis Learns the Hard Way by Karla Priddy Gragg in 2013. And Splickety Magazine published her flash-fiction story, An Accomplice to Love, in February 2016.
