Hello all! Today I have the special privilege of hosting author Angela Christina Archer. I read part of her novel in a writing group a year or so ago. I’ve been waiting since then to read the rest! Her book, The Woman on the Painted Horse, is to be released today. Please check it out!

chasing around her many farm animals, and of course, putting her passion to pen

18, 2009. It’s weird that I know the exact date, but it’s the date I woke up,
said I was going to finally do it, and opened my computer.
are your favorite/least favorite things about writing? I’ve
done a lot of interviews with authors that say their least is editing, but I
have to say that’s actually my favorite. Least favorite is of course hitting
the dreaded brick wall.
review? I haven’t received any *yet*. And, I would like to
say my plan is to just not read them, but I know that the temptation might get
the better of me. I plan to have lots of chocolate around me when it happens.
you have any future projects in the works? My second novel,
In the Land of Gold, is in contract with Soul Mate Publishing. It is set in
1897, during the Klondike gold rush. Currently, I’m looking at end of
2014/beginning of 2015 release. While the manuscript was hard to write, I had a
blast writing it and I’m excited to have it released for everyone else to
third manuscript has taken a different turn then the first two. I always
thought I would stay in the sweet heat historical romances, but when I started
outlining my third, When the Black Roses Grow, it just sort of took a turn on
its own and has turned into a historical paranormal romance.

world, where would it be?
past or present, where would you go? Who would you meet? Interestingly
enough, my husband and I were talking about this the other night. I think it
would be an amazing to have experienced George Washington getting sworn in as
the first President. Huh, now I have a book idea brewing….
eaten? I don’t eat weird food. I grew up picky, and
I’m now a picky adult. I have really weird food habits, too. I love bacon—it’s perhaps my most favorite food. But with that
said, I can’t have it on anything. Love bacon, love hamburgers, but will NOT
eat a bacon burger. To me, bacon is too good to be shared with other flavors. I
won’t eat onions on anything, and even strain my Ragu spaghetti sauce to get
the little chopped onions out. But I like and will eat onion rings and
Outback’s Bloomin’ Onion. I eat jalapeno peppers on anything and
everything I can get them on. I am a condiment queen and will smoother my food
with mayo, ketchup, or dressing – whatever the condiment the certain food
requires I will pile it on, and I even put mayo on not only my sandwiches and
hamburgers, but my hot dog buns too. I eat peanut butter on pancakes and
waffles instead of butter. I prefer vegetables over fruit. And, I believe
that cream cheese is a gift from the heavens. Brownies are my biggest weakness
and I will pile cream cheese frosting on them without a second thought.
fairy tale: Too many to have just one.

milk, or white chocolate: White
you go, do you have any special acknowledgments you’d like to give? First
and foremost, to my host, Tamara Grantham! Thank you so much for the interview.
I had so much fun. And, congratulations on Shine #6—Raze. I’ve been thoroughly
enjoying it and I can’t wait to read more from you!
