#NewRelease The Twenty-One-Year Contract by L.B. Griffin
Today I have author L.B. Griffin on the blog talking about her new release, The Twenty-One-Year Contract. I must admit, I find the title along with the starfield on the cover very intriguing.
1. What do you write?
I write stories about strong women, courage and survival. My latest is 20th Century romance>mystery>suspense>crime>drama
2. What’s the fun part of writing and why?
I love the way the characters take me by the hand and lead me along the path. They tell me what they want to say and what’s going to happen next. I love it.
5. Why did you write this particular book you’re talking about today?
I find that every book I write is filled with stories of courage and survival. I’ve met so many wonderful people in my life. So many I admire. Their strength of character, their courage. They are survivors. It is for those I write. To demonstrate that it is possible to be a survivor. The Twenty-One-Year Contract is a standalone, just like the prequel Secrets, Shame, and a Shoebox.
6. What’s the most difficult part of writing and why?
Having time to write. I get lost for hours on end. Sometimes I think I should be really skinny as I rarely eat when I’m writing. But no, its not a good way to diet, and I’m certainly not skinny!
The other thing is Marketing. Its stressful. I’m shy. Honestly! I’ve never been good at bragging about myself, and that’s what it feels like. Selling my brand, telling everyone I’m great, my books are great. Go out and buy my book. Marketing can also be expensive, not only in time but money, and of course it gets in the way of what I love to do most. Writing stories.
However, my sincere thanks go to every reader who has or has not bought my book. Without you, writers wouldn’t be needed. So, thank you from the very bottom of my heart.
EXCERPT FROM The Twenty-One-Year Contract
‘After a glass of water, Jack made himself a cup of tea and returned to the job in hand. This was going to be much harder than he could ever have imagined. Working deep through the night, Jack methodically sifted through volumes of paperwork until light inched its way through the curtain. Though he felt thoroughly ready for bed, he continued searching, his aim to find at least a smidgen of information about his niece. Randomly tidying up as he went, Jack noticed an encyclopaedia oddly extended over one of the top shelves. He tried pushing it back into place. It was jammed. It looked awkward. Pulling it out to check the depth of the book, he found a box file hidden behind. Upon the side panel was one word, capitalized in thick bold lettering: KATHLEEN As the hazy sunlight grew, puzzled, Jack pulled the curtains to lend natural light, took the file off the shelf, sat back in Henry’s chair, and looked inside…’
