Notes From a Romantic’s Heart welcomes you back to Welcome Wednesdays! This week’s guest is author Jessica E. Subject. Today we’re featuring Jessica’s audio book, Beneath the Starry Sky, from Decadent Publishing and Audible.com. Jessica is also nearing the end of her most recent tour but there are still two days left to enter her Rafflecopter draw listed below.
Because we’re nosy:
Q: If you could become any one of your book’s characters, who would it be and why?
Wow, I’m not sure I’d want to be any of the main characters with all the challenges they’ve had to endure in their lives. I think I’d want to be Madame Eve. She gets to match all of these people together, and learn about how the relationships have blossomed, resulting in many happily ever afters.
Q: What was your biggest challenge in writing your current release?
I had to do a lot of research about alopecia areata. I wanted to give an accurate portrayal of what Tamara would experience with the autoimmune disease.
Q: If you were stranded on a dessert island with ANY book boyfriend, who would you choose and why?
Oh, I’d easily take Josh from Beneath the Starry Sky. Though, I might have to fight Tamara for him.
Speed Round (just to get to know you better):
a. Coffee, tea, or other? Iced sweet tea
b. Music preference? Lately, Econoline Crush
c. Favorite movie? The Host, thought I’m thinking that might change when The Martian is released.
d. Dog, cat, or other? Dog, a big one.
e. Favorite author? Can’t pick just one.
f. Favorite actor/actress? Henry Cavill
g. Favorite television show (past or present)? Dr. Who, The 100, The Walking Dead, Space: Above and Beyond
About the Book:
Left at the altar with bald patches on her head and her selfconfidence stripped away, Tamara Johnson must pick up the pieces of her life and face her Alopecia Areata, the autoimmune disease causing her hair to fall out. She is convinced no man will date a bald woman and arranges a onenight stand through Madame Evangeline’s popular service, 1Night Stand. With her new wig held firmly in place, Tamara arrives at the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas for a night of passion and pleasure. Anything more than one night would mean exposing her bald head, and she will never do that to any man again.
Running into the Castillo Hotel, away from the paparazzi constantly at his heels, Josh Summers wants to spend his next few days locked away from the flashing lights and screaming fans. When he finds an incredibly sexy woman lying on his hotel room bed in nothing but lingerie, he thinks management has made a mistake. Leaving her behind, he heads for the lobby to get the situation rectified. But an unexpected text from Madame Evangeline sends him back to his room.
Though unsure whether the woman on the bed is really his perfect match or just another fan believing him to be like his character on television, he knows he must find out, even if it means he must risk telling her his own secrets. If Tamara can handle his imperfections, she just might be his ideal woman.
