Today we are graced with the presence of author MaryAnn Kempher, who writes romantic fiction. As I am writing this, MaryAnn is off plotting something with Princess Ruby. I think they are planning to get rid of me, or something. I certainly hope not!
She also seems to be on first name terms with 'Him' (the Transylvanian one) which also leads me to suspect that things might be afoot.
Anyway, MaryAnn is courteous and charming, and Ruby is insisting that we all download her book for free over the next few days. What a lovely idea.
FREE Kindle Download - Tuesday 11 June to Saturday 15 June
We are extremely pleased you have journeyed to us in the Karkonose. Can you tell us something about the place where you usually dwell and your background?
Hello, I currently live near Tampa Florida, USA. I’ve travelled to a lot of different places, the only place I can say I really regret not being able to visit (yet) is London.
Are you enjoying your visit to the Citadel?
Oh absolutely. I love it here.
Tell us what is happening to you at the moment as a writer.
At the moment, I’m writing my second book.
ML: Hmm...I wonder what it is about?
Well, my first book MOCHA, MOONLIGHT, AND MURDER, which is Romantic Suspense was released on 14 April. I’m super excited because....
Tuesday 11 June through Saturday 15 June, my book will be FREE for all Kindle users.
We employ lots of gnomes here at the citadel. They are quite rambunctious and troublesome at times, and often refuse to work. Do you have any tips on looking after them?
Well, I’ve heard that if you feed them biscuits and tea or coffee that tends to calm them down. But, be careful when you hand them their biscuits, they get very excited and might nip you.
ML: The nipping is just about tolerable. It is the cheese rampages I worry about. Cheese and biscuits rampages would be off the scale!
I have a long running feud with Vlad Dracula, who lives over in Transylvania. He thinks I stole his wife and will not let it lie. Do you any recommendations on how I should deal with the grumpy old curmudgeon?
Oh, I’ve heard all about your feud. You just don’t understand Vlad like I do. He’s really a softie, but he has a terrible ulcer. His wife used to rub his belly, now she’s gone and he blames you. Just arrange for a monthly massage, and he’ll soon forgive you.
My wife Ruby says I spend too much time in the local village and not enough time counting turnips for her. How can I keep her happy?
I’ve met Ruby and she always wants what she doesn’t have. This is just another case of her thinking she wants something she really doesn’t. If you give up your trips to the village for a little while, she’ll soon get tired of your constant company and be pushing you out the door.ML: Gulp!
I failed in my last attempt to unleash chaos on the world. Can you think of a way I should employ my powers to redeem myself and make the world a better place?
Hmm, that’s a hard one, I’ll have to give that some thought and get back to you.
How can people find you on this Internet thing-a-me-jig? Do you have a web address or other ways that lovely book fans can read more about you?
Oh gosh, I’m everywhere. If you’d like to download my book for free (11-15 June) go here:
It’s also where you’ll go if you miss the free days. But don’t worry—it’s only $2.99 USD or £2.01
