There’s A Party Going On! …by Susan Lute
We started our celebration with Cassiel’s new release, Blood On The Moon. If you haven’t already gotten it from your favorite online bookstore, run right out and get it. Wow!
The next release on our list is The Broken Road, by yours truly. And to celebrate, tonight I’m making teriyaki chicken over brown rice; topping it off with a glass of Bailey’s and cream. I’d love for you to join me.
Here at SJP we love interviewing authors, and since you already know more than you probably want to about this Jane, I thought I’d interview myself…ask questions no one else is likely to ask. Here goes.
Susan: What was the genesis of your story?
Susan: The genesis of The Broken Road was it’s original title, Diary Of A Broken Doctor. I wanted to a series of stories about caregivers who give more to their patients than they can afford to give, and what happens to them when their perfect life comes crashing about their ears . The first of these stories was The London Affair. The second is The Broken Road.
Susan: What’s the thing you like best about this story?
Susan: What I like best is Dana’s struggle to find her way. She’s not the easiest character to like, much less love, because she’s got her heart all locked up. But truthfully, I think there’s a bit of each of us in her. How often do we do things the easy way? I don’t know about you, but I rarely do.
Susan: If The Broken Road were made into a film, who would play the lead roles?
Susan: This story has a large cast of characters, but Grady would be played by Jude Law (The Holiday). He does a dad like no one else’s business. Dana would have to be played by Amy Adams (Julie & Julia), determined, setting her own course, but underneath it all, vulnerable too.
So there you have it. The Broken Road on sale at your favorite online retailer. The celebration starts here. Can we take it to the USA Today Best-Selling Books List? One can dream, right? To spur the celebration along, I’m giving away a $10 Amazon or BN gift card to the name the Mr draws out of the famous green beaded purse. One chance if you sign up for my newsletter at SusanLute.com (forgive the construction going on over there). Another chance if you include the name of Dana’s clinic in your comment.
You can also find me at Romancing The Genres this week.
Hoisting the Bailey’s. Cheers!
