Celebration with Monica Murphy!

Welcome to a month long celebration!

What am I celebrating?


And it's gone up since then!

SO, I'm celebrating!

All month I will be posting interview and featuring books from some of my favorite authors!

Of course, there will be a HUGE giveaway to go along with it!
For every author that participates, I will add one of their books to the giveaway.  Every book will have a winner! This will be BIG!

Who do I have today?

Monica Murphy!

I’m celebrating passing 700,000 page views on Stuck In Books and I’m so happy you’re here with me for that.

Congrats Valerie! That’s so exciting! J

Hope you don’t mind me being silly with you for a bit.  Gotta have some fun, ya know.  Does it make me strange that I want to celebrate with authors?  It’s a bookish thing.

Absolutely not! Writers and bloggers are some of my favorite people.

When you want to celebrate something fabulous, what do you do?

I’m so lame…if I’m lucky the family and I go out to dinner. We know how to live it up.

My celebrating beverage is Coke Zero. I know, I’m weird.  What’s your celebrating beverage of choice?

I’m weird too…I love diet Coke!

I tend to hang out at parks with my one-year-old grandson for celebrations.  Where is your celebration destination of choice?

I’m dying to go on a real vacation and escape to Hawaii! That’s me dreaming right now though.

I might get stuck in a book to celebrate.  Who am I kidding; of course that’s how I celebrate.  (Buying a book is the best kind of celebration!) What was the last book you got stuck in?

Hmm, I just read Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren. Love those girls. LOVED the book! I know readers are going to die of swoonage when they read Will’s story.

New adult books have become my new love.  Do you have a genre that you prefer to read or write over all others?

I do love writing/reading new adult but I’m also a fan of writing/reading straight contemporary romance.

If you had to re-write the three little pigs or the three bears into a new adult book, which would you choose and how would you do it?

Hmm, I’d take on those three bears. I think Goldilocks would be a bit of a tramp and always sleeping around (hence the sleeping in different beds). I’d make the bears three guys so it would be a love rectangle! Who will Goldilocks end up with? Hmm…

You’re building the perfect ice cream sundae to share with one character from one of your books.  What’s on the sundae and who are you sharing it with? Yeah – you need to explain your choice.

Well, it would be your traditional ice cream sundae. Vanilla ice cream, hot fudge and…marshmallow sauce! Of course, I’m sharing it with Drew Callahan from One Week Girlfriend. *winks*

You have woke up in the middle of one of your books but things aren’t unfolding as you thought.  Which character has sabotaged the story and how will you convince them to fix it?

I had this problem with Three Broken Promises, Jen and Colin’s book. Colin sabotaged it repeatedly. He was just so closed off! (lame because I created him right?) I needed him to reveal himself to me completely. Finally I wore him down. Somewhat. The guy is still a bit of a mystery.

You know my good news, what’s yours?  (What’s the new book/project you got going or any other thing you’d like to share with peeps).

I’m currently working on Owen’s book (Fable’s little brother) Four Years Later. Having so much fun writing it too! Owen’s pretty dreamy. I hope readers think so.

Congrats again Valerie!

Crave (Billionaire Bachelors Club, #1) by Monica Murphy 

Billionaire Archer Bancroft always gets what he wants—and he’s wanted Ivy Emerson, his best friend’s sister, for far too long. Being forbidden and untouchable only makes her more tempting. When a million-dollar bet with his friends throws down a challenge—last bachelor standing takes all—Archer knows he can win. That is, until one enchanted evening with Ivy takes his heart for a ride.

Ivy knows Archer is nothing but bad news: Infuriating, arrogant…and completely intoxicating. But despite her best efforts, she can’t seem to keep away. When a stolen kiss leads to a night of heated passion, Ivy realizes she’s in trouble and in head over heels.

But in the light of day, everything seems clearer and Archer’s not so sure a one-night stand is all he wants. Concocting a plan to keep Ivy by his side, Archer might just be willing to lose this bet…and win the jackpot instead.

NOW the GIVEAWAY part!

So, for every author that I interview, I will be adding a book to this giveaway. Every book will have a winner. It's the same giveaway all month, I'll just be adding to it.

What am I adding for Monica Murphy?
