My book character Charli, texted me to set up an interview. A few months ago, I had sat down with her and now she was ready to turn the tables and ask me some questions. We decided to meet by my outdoor fireplace with a nip of brandy. Before we started, I ran back in to the house for a warmer jacket and scarf and when I settled back by the fireplace and poked at the flames, she was eager to begin.
Charli: thanks for sharing the big news with me! About the reveal! The cover reveal!
Jena: Hi Charli! No warm up questions from you, we are plunging right in?
Charli: We’ll have plenty of time to dissect you- but I can’t wait to share the cover. Our third book- here it is!
Jena: So you like it?
Charli: I love it and so will everyone else! The blue is so pretty and I like the idea of the picnic basket. And the glasses of wine, of course!
Jena: The third book in my series…
Charli: OUR series
Jena: (choking on my warm amber brandy) Ok, OUR series is The Golden Age of Charli–GPS. The picnic set up and outdoor scene reminded me of travel…
Charli: But I do much more than travel in Book 3!
Jena: Yes, you do- you also travel inwardly and do some thinking about the meaning of life, the meaning of your life.
Charli: You make our book sound boring!
Jena: Maybe…but you did find someone else! Would you like some more brandy? Are you warm enough? Let’s put some more wood on the fire.
Charli: I am fine, thanks, it’s so nice to sit here with you and relax. Usually you are so busy with your social media, and blogs.
Jena: I know, and I have loved every minute of connecting with new friends from all over- I need a GPS to keep up with them all! I have good friends in Portugal, the Isle of Wight, Canada, all over America- there’s a great gang in the South!
Charli: That’s what I love about life, sharing with friends. Ok, so please start sharing with me. Before you have to go inside and make a sandwich for someone or switch the laundry, let’s do a quick round of “Favorites”.
Jena: Sounds like fun!
Charli: Ok, what’s your favorite movie?
Jena: Gone with the Wind
Charli- That old thing! Ok, favorite food. And don’t say wine.
Jena: My favorite food right now is sushi.
Charli: That’s always good. You used to make those “church potatoes”. Why don’t you make those again?
Jena: I should- they are yummy and cheesy. We should be making s’mores now, right? Those are a favorite, too.
Charli: Yep, but the brandy is fine with me. Ok, favorite song?
Jena: Hallelujah! Handel’s chorus.
Charli: Geez, are you trying to sound all fancy because I am interviewing you? Ok, you know I like to say, “Press on!” What is your favorite saying?
Jena: I have begun to ponder, “How you do anything how you do everything.”
Charli: How you do everything and anything, how? What?
Jena; Oh, Charli, you make me laugh!
The house door opens and a male voice yells, “Should I run the dishwasher?” Charli and Jena laugh louder and hug.
Charli: You have to go inside now, right?
Jena: Yes, but thanks for taking the time to interview me. And do you mind if I tell everyone that book 3 The Golden Age of Charli-GPS will be released as we speak! Paperback is available now on Amazon and the kindle format will be up soon. Also check out Buy the Books and About the Books on my website.
Charli- So everyone, make sure you have read books 1 and 2 and I am so excited to get the first copy of The Golden Age of Charli- GPS. I love the cover. Thanks, Jena! And speaking of favorites, you are my favorite author!
