One of my favourite authors, Barbara Elsborg, has a new release out on the 24th March. I invited her to come along to my blog and tell us all about it. It’s a definite TBR for me as Barbara is one of my auto buy writers.
First off, I love the cover. Simple, stark and classic. Now over to Barbara……
Thanks for having me, Susan! Falling comes out on the 24th March and is book one of a two book set .It’s a standalone novel as is book two, Breaking, which comes out on the 28th of July. Breaking is the story of Conrad who’s one of the characters in Falling.
When I decided to write a book about a guy who’d spent a long time in prison for something he didn’t do, I knew Harper would be a difficult guy to love. Malachi is his perfect foil, a guy who loves life with every molecule of his being. He’s the one who has to catch the falling Harper and yet Malachi himself needs saving. The cover is just perfect. I can’t always say that. Oh how I wish I could. But this IS Malachi and if we could see him look up, I picture a cheeky smile on his face.
Harper is no longer behind bars, but it doesn’t feel like it. Ten years serving time for a crime he didn’t commit have left him shut down, numb, and a frozen wreck over the simplest of choices.
He’s acutely aware of the dark-haired young man checking him out in the supermarket, but he’s too deep in panic mode to even meet the guy’s gaze. Afraid the slightest move will trigger a fall that will never stop.
Fresh off a long-term relationship with a controlling man, Malachi is stuck living with relatives who think he’s a waste of oxygen. The tall guy in the long, gray coat is the first bright spot he’s glimpsed in a long time…though the man’s unblinking stare at a bottle of shower gel is a touch alarming.
Hard experience tells both of them to turn away before lust turns to hopeless attraction, and inevitably to disaster. But once their sparks connect, the arc of electricity is too strong to deny. Even if the cost is too much to bear.
Barbara Elsborg lives in West Yorkshire in the north of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Vulcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide. (Try saying that fast)
After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop. Her books feature quirky heroines and bad boys, sometimes two bad boys for each quirky heroine, and more recently two bad boys all on their own. She hopes her stories are as much fun to read as they are to write.
Thanks, Barbara, for taking the time to come down and visit.
