Hey there everyone.
Welcome to the start of another exciting week.
(If it’s not that exciting for you then I hope to change all that tonight!)
For the Author Interview Series, we have a treat for you all in the form of our guest Australian Romance author Claire S Crawford, as she takes the stand to spice things up a bit and give us her own motivations to write.
Here we go and enjoy the show.
Hi there Claire, thank you spending time with us today to talk to us about your books and put a little more steamy romance into our lives.
Let’s start with your latest novel “Settling for Perfect”. That sounds good to me! I wouldn’t want to settle for anything less than perfect. So what kind of lustful adventure will our hero Arna find herself partaking in your book, as she refuses to be influenced by her ‘friends’ in choosing any old man that comes her way? Tell us how your tale unfolds but don’t give too much away 😉
Arna is your unconventional romantic heroine. A twenty-something single girl, she has never wanted the traditional ‘happily-ever-after’. Loving her life and her challenging career, she is content with her close circle of friends, and while on the look-out for a sexy, handsome man, isn’t in any rush for commitment.
However, she soon discovers that her lack of interest in a diamond ring and baby has left her on the outer. Cast aside by her friends, Arna is devastated and is forced to question what she really wants in a man. Will she ever find her Mr Perfect?
Struggling to make sense of the competing expectations of her family and friends, and the desires of her own heart, Arna is determined to find a sexy, handsome man who is loyal, committed and will satisfy her long-term with knee-trembling passion. However, it is not an easy task! It seems the men attracted to Arna are the exact opposite of what she longs for; or already married.
Jam-packed with action, Arna sets off on a rollercoaster of emotional highs and lows, lust and sizzling hot scenes on her quest for love and her happily-ever-after!
You also have written a novel called “Fantasy For Real (Ruth and Adam Book 1)”. Please tell us how this differs from your Settling for Perfect novel, what story arc we are going to encounter with the characters and what sort of sexy cat and mouse games they are going to play with each other in pursuit of their dreams and fantasies made real?
“Fantasy for Real” features your more typical contemporary romance heroine and hero. Ruth is a small town girl who has moved to the big city, heart set on opening up a fashion store featuring her own fresh and flattering designs. She’s smart and keen to succeed on her own but also just a little bit shy! She is a true romantic at heart, and after meeting the gorgeous Adam Grace, refuses to be disheartened by her friend who is keen to knock her back to reality; apparently men never call when they say they will!
The ‘cat and mouse games’ are unintentional on the part of both Ruth and Adam, with life and personal commitments (damn Ruth’s day-job and Adam’s ‘secret’ career…) shoving hurdles in the way that just get harder to jump over. Ruth realizes she has to push that ‘shy girl’ aside if she’s going to get her man and make all her fantasies come true.
If your novels were to be made into movies, who would you cast in the lead roles?
Gosh! This is such a tricky question and one I always struggle with. I love the idea of casting an ‘unknown’ actress for the heroine roles, mainly because I see my female leads as ‘ordinary girls’ who find their Mr Sexy in ways they least expect. I think it would be excellent to see an aspiring actress launched into stardom in the same way my heroines are whisked away to their ‘happily-ever-after’.
The actresses must be the kind that ‘real women’ will relate to, and I particularly like the role-modelling of positive body images; it’s a no-brainer that both ‘Arna’ and ‘Ruth’ must be played by women with curves and ‘imperfections’!
I’m a big fan of personality and not just looks when it comes to actors. Of course, the personality is the most variable when it comes to ‘character’, and depends entirely on the scene! I have seen some actors who are absolutely gorgeous and lust-worthy in one movie and a complete cringe-fest in another.
As much as I hate reverting to stereotypes, my male characters are the ‘tall, dark and handsome’ types. However, I would definitely be holding an audition and asking each of the men to do their best impression of sexy, assertive and masculine, with a hint of fun, cheeky and gentleman! Not much to ask for…
What do you find the most difficult thing about writing? And what do you find the easiest?
I’ve always been a long-term planner, but someone who needs to make short-term goals with ‘easily foreseeable’ achievements to stay motivated. Balancing the reality that a book takes time to write, edit and perfect, with the need for more immediate gratification, has its challenges!
I spend a lot of time ‘thinking’ about plot lines, characters, twists and scenes, and rarely sit down to write until I have a fairly established idea of what I’m going to do. However, organising the many competing thoughts and ideas in my head is still a battle of time and priority!
I have learned to relax and let the ideas sift through, without putting any pressure on myself to produce anything tangible, but when I’m working on a particular project, I set a strict word count for daily writing. Once I have a clear idea for a particular book sorted in my head, the writing itself is incredibly easy.
To satisfy my need for ‘achievement’, I set goals around when I want to finish a draft, or find another ‘challenge’ to give me a sense of fulfilment. For example, I recently came across a contest which closed in a fortnight, and required the first three chapters and a synopsis. I set myself the challenge to write a book (fifty-thousand-word draft) in less than two weeks. The personal satisfaction I gained from meeting my goal inspired me through the next month of editing and redrafting a different manuscript which probably won’t see an audience for a while yet!
Who are some of the authors in general that inspire you?
I must confess, being an introvert, I struggle to name external sources of inspiration, as everything I see, read and absorb blends together in my mind to form my own internal inspiration. I genuinely find it hard to name individual authors who have inspired me, as so many different authors from different genres have motivated me over the years in varying ways.
I still think back fondly to the books I read as a child and young teenager, and as far as ‘story-telling’ is concerned, they probably inspired me the most, but I’d be hard pressed to remember the authors!
What sort of research do you do to write your books?
People and relationships fascinate me, and the situations people find themselves in, intentionally and unintentionally, provide useful background information for contemporary romance. I also have professional qualifications in law and social science, plus a wealth of life experience from travelling the world and working in several different industries. I guess you could say I use ‘observational’ and ‘ethnographic’ research methods for my characters and the situations they find themselves in!
My books are all set in the present, some in fictional places and others in major capitals. I’ll either draw on my existing knowledge of places I have visited or make good use of Google.
Why do you write? What inspired you to become a writer?
I have always loved writing, or at the very least, crafting entertaining stories! I recall as a child scrawling lengthy manuscripts in pencil or livening up the chores by narrating mysteries to my siblings! I have continued to write fiction on an off since childhood, although the genres have changed over the years.
I honestly can’t tell you what inspired me to write to begin with, but now I write fiction as an escape from an otherwise serious world. I love immersing myself in different characters, and planning and plotting exciting new realities. Once a story is crafted, I particularly enjoy sharing it with other people to provide them with an escape into fantasy-land. If just one person loves my books, I feel inspired to continue to write!
What keeps you motivated during creative slumps? How do you deal with Writers Block?
I have to admit that I have never bought into Writers Block. I know that creative slumps happen, but I have always been so busy with different focuses and priorities at different times in my life, I can’t say I have ever experienced a gaping hole from lack of inspiration.
Even when I haven’t been focusing on fiction writing, I am a chronic day-dreamer, and have countless stories racing through my mind. I usually have the opposite issue of finding time to sit and write, rather than struggling to find material to write about.
In saying that, my preferred genres have changed over the years and I won’t always focus on the same type of writing. I also enjoy writing non-fiction and the six years I spent studying while simultaneously working and/or having babies, filled my innate need to ‘write’, albeit of a more serious nature.
If I am working on a particular project and have set myself a word count for the day, I make myself write about something, no matter how bad the content. I guess I am quite organised and disciplined and rarely accept any excuse for not completing a goal I have set myself to achieve. Of course, I also accept that some days it’s just not worth the struggle and am quite happy to do nothing at all!
You have access to a time machine. What advice would you give to your younger self?
I made so many terrible decisions in my younger years, but the consequences of those decisions has resulted in me being the person I am today! If I really had to give my younger self advice, it would be to have the confidence to do what I want to do, and not worry about what other people think.
How do you spend your free time when you are not writing?
At the moment I spend my free time writing! I have two young children with my third due in December 2016 and also work part time to pay the bills. If there are enough hours in the day after family and work, I enjoy catching up with friends, relaxing and doing absolutely nothing, or taking time out for my other creative hobbies.
Tell us more about your upcoming projects. Are you working on anything specific or have plans in the pipeline?
My major project at the moment is publishing my range of contemporary romance e-novellas. I am releasing a new book every 1-2 months over the next year as a way to establish myself in the market. The manuscripts are all prepared but of course there is always more work to be done with editing, proofreading and finalising!
I will be taking time out of my paid job next year for maternity leave and intend to spend what free time I have working on full length manuscripts.
Finally, are there any nuggets of wisdom that you can impart to other aspiring writers?
Write, write, write and write, and keep writing! Seek feedback at every opportunity, and don’t be disheartened by criticism. Be ruthless in your editing and try not to become personally attached to sentences, paragraphs or even scenes where they add nothing to your story. Once your story is out there, let it go. And most of all, have fun!
And that’s a wrap! Thank you for being with us Claire, we look forward to checking out your sizzling books 🙂
