Let’s start things off with you. Tell our readers and me a little bit about you and one random interesting fact!
Hi! Thank you for this interview! My name is Ember-Raine Winters and I write Romantic Suspense and Steamy Contemporary Romance! I live all the way out in Central California with my two beautiful children. I love music of all kinds but especially country.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not writing?
When I’m not writing? Haha. It seems like I’m always writing these days! I love to read and watch fantasy TV shows and movies. We have a weekly family movie night. It’s awesome.
Tell me about what it was like for you writing and publishing your first book.
My first book wasn’t all that interesting. LOL! I just randomly decided to publish it one night after taking more than two years to write. But, it was all downhill from there. I have a bunch of books now and no matter what the butterflies in my stomach never change with each new book.
Can you tell me a little bit about your recently published novel?
The latest book is the fourth and final book in my Pride and Honor Series Beautiful Surrender. It follows Trey and Kenzie as they try to get their family back from the evil Barnes who kidnapped them in book 3. Kenzie is a tough nut to crack and believes that loving her is a death sentence so she tries to keep Trey at arm’s length, but he’s not having it.
What’s your favorite part about being an author?
The readers! I love hearing from readers who have enjoyed my books and romance readers are some of the funniest and supportive people in the world! They are by far the best part.
Where do you get your best ideas?
Funnily enough, some of my ideas for books have come from songs. There’s Something About Vegas came to me from listening to a Carrie Underwood song and honestly I have a few more ideas from songs of hers. But, I get ideas from everywhere. Sometimes I’ll be driving down the street and an idea will just slam into me and then I have to get home immediately so I can write it down.
What are you currently working on? Do you have any new projects coming up?
I’m actually working on several things at the moment. I started an anthology for Veterans Day where all the proceeds will be donated to charity. It’s called Victor Echo Tango Love. Keep a lookout for it. It releases November 9th, 2017
I’m also working with an awesome group of 12 authors on Tales for the Season. It’s a Christmas Anthology and it’s going to be Epic!
I couldn’t stand to say goodbye to my GTT guys in Pride and Honor, so I have decided to put out a Christmas Book A Beautiful Christmas releases December 18th, 2017
And, last the second book in my Las Vegas Nights Series I will be writing that during National Novel Writing Month and will most likely publish early in the new year.
