SAVANNAH'S JOURNEY ~ CHARACTERS CURTAIN CALL






Savannah's Journey is my latest contemporary romance. A chance encounter offers a season of change. Can a lonely journalist keep herself from running into the arms of a charismatic, sexy doctor when she holds a secret past hidden deep inside her heart?

I love the characters in this story. They've become good friends of mine. Their struggles are close to my heart. I enjoy writing romance that weaves in family drama and the struggles that need to be addressed before we can open our hearts to love.

My characters and I become a team. I get to know their backgrounds, fears, insecurties, desires, and darkest secrets. I take my time choosing the right person to represent them in my imaginary movie. It's fun to see if my readers agree. Do you have ideas of your own?

Do you think I got the characters right for this one? My hero may be wearing a shirt, and a bare chested hero is hot,  but I think he looks like a doctor in this photo. I can see this actor in the role. I had so much fun writing this story, it's exciting to pick a dream cast.

A WRITER'S INSPIRATION




I find it interesting to learn the inspiration for a story. The ideas usually stem from something that stands out in my mind. Savannah's Journey book 1 in the City Lights Series came to me when I was thinking about my teen years. My closest friends and I marched in a colorguard. We loved prancing down the road during a parade. One Saturday I was home sick and my friends called me franic over something that happened. One of our friends became ill. There was a reason for her dizziness and all hell broke lose. She was fine, but what happened next tore her apart. I won't give away the storyline. You'll have to pick up a copy of Savannah's Journey to find out what happenned. Of course I changed the story to make it fit into my characters life, but the basic idea remains the same. If you like contemporary romance, give it a try.

I was in a silly mood and I made this video. It's cute. Since my heroine works in New York City and the romance begins there, I thought it was fun to set the scene in the city.

HOW I SPENT MY SUMMER VACATION BLOG HOP

GRAND GIVEAWAY  "SPONSERED BY CHRISTINA COLE ROMANCE" IS A 50.00 AMAZON GIFT CARD. RAFFLECOPTER AT THE END OF MY POST.



My Trip to Paradise

My favorite time of year is late spring and early summer. There’s something about the longer days and blossoming flowers that brings me out of the winter funk. This year my husband and I planned a trip to Florida. Since we made it through one of the worse winters of all time, we needed a break. I had been through a scare with my health and completed a long recovery. I’m doing great now and grateful to have made a full recovery.

Our trip was amazing. The sunshine along the streets lined with majestic palms uplifted my spirits. We sun bathed on the beach gazing out to the gorgeous blue-green water. Our evening dining experience was magnificent. There’s nothing like sitting outside watching the breathtaking sunsets along the shore.  I’ve never seen such beautiful shades of orange, reddish-pink, and gold along the horizon. I can’t wait to go back this winter.
