My Blog Tour giveaway plan is as follows:
1. Comment here for the chance to win an ebook. My assistant William will randomly pick a winner for each blog I visit, and that person will win an ebook of their choice from my backlist.
2. For the Hell On Wheels Tour Rafflecopter giveaway, I will be awarding one lucky reader with a 25.00 gift certificate for Amazon. The giveaway will conclude at midnight on December 8th, at which time we’ll choose a winner.
3. There are many ways to enter, and some can be done more than once. Give yourself lots of chances to win by following along the blog and commenting. Blog Tour itinerary.
Now, for the questions!
1. Tell us about the books you like to read. Do you prefer in the genre or outside the genre? Is there one book that you read that's stuck with you over time?
I read everything from cookbooks to non-fiction, to classics to mystery to romance, het and gay. It just depends on what I like. I love the author Joan Didion, the non-fiction book Pentimento, by Lillian Hellman has stayed with me forever. I adore Laura Kinsale and re-read Agatha Christie just because it’s cozy. Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby amazes me every time I read it.
2. What is your favourite style of music? Any unknown or lesser known artists that you might like to share? Do you listen to music while you write and is it the same music you would listen to when not working?
I guess I mostly listen to whatever my older kids put on my phone. One loves alternative, the other dance, hip-hop, trance, a capella vocal music and dubstep. We have weird bands we like Steam Powered Giraffe. I dunno.
3. What's your favourite movie? Do you have any little gems that you might like to recommend? Do you have a comfort movie? A movie that others might term a "guilty pleasure"?
I love to watch ballroom dance movies like Strictly Ballroom and Shall We Dance. Goofy Bollywood films are my guilty pleasure.
4. What is the oddest thing to have inspired your writing?
5. To someone who wanted to try ZAM for the first time, which book would you recommend as a good starting point?
For the true ZAM experience, I recommend either My Cowboy Heart which is a glimpse into the sentimental side of my work, or Hell On Wheels, which explores those quirky characters and comic situations I love to write about.
Thanks so much for having me here today, I hope I’ve entertained my readers and maybe touched some hearts along the way.
Happy holidays and have a wonderful, healthy new year!
So when Wolf’s Landing actor Spencer Kepler-Constantine lands in his life, Nash is ready for a diversion. Spencer is in the middle of a very painful, very public divorce and isn’t ready for a relationship—not that Nash wants one. But they both need a friend, especially one with benefits.
As they grow closer, Nash starts to see his family in a whole new light. Do they really need him so badly? Or does he simply need to be needed? Then Spencer’s ex reappears with a grand romantic gesture, and Nash has to figure out what he wants—and how to get it—before Spencer’s gone for good.
Z. A. Maxfield started writing in 2007 on a dare from her children and never looked back. Pathologically disorganized, and perennially optimistic, she writes as much as she can, reads as much as she dares, and enjoys her time with family and friends. Three things reverberate throughout all her stories: Unconditional love, redemption, and the belief that miracles happen when we least expect them.
If anyone asks her how a wife and mother of four can find time for a writing career, she’ll answer, “It’s amazing what you can accomplish if you give up housework.”
