Thank you for providing such a great candid photo!
About Christian Fiction Readers Retreat...

In what ways have you participated in CFRR?
ALP: I haven’t yet, but I’m so excited to be part of it for 2019!
Rachel: I can't believe we live in the same region, but will be meeting you in D.C.!!! Haha!
What part of CFRR are you most excited about?
ALP: I’m just so excited to meet everyone! I feel as much a reader-fan as I do a writer. Can’t wait to meet and fan-girl with everyone else. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’œ
Rachel: Oh there will be plenty freaking out and flailing about for sure! Are you a hugger?
ALP: I can be. ๐Ÿ˜‰
Rachel: Ok good! Haha!
Just for fun...
Where is one place you want to visit that you haven't been before?
ALP: I haven’t been to Italy and I would LOVE to go there. I studied Italian history and art extensively in college but I have never actually traveled there, can you believe it?!
Rachel: Oh I would LOVE to visit Italy too!!! If you could have any accents from anywhere in the world, what would you choose?
ALP: I loooove me some Australian and Irish accents. Can’t do either very well but I do a killer Spanish accent, though. LOL
Rachel: All of the above please! Hehe! If you were a spy, what would your code name be?
ALP: Miss Prism. <3
Rachel: Oooooooh I love that!

About reading...

What's your favorite genre to read?
ALP: Historical romance. Bar none.
Rachel: I second that! When reading, do you block out the world around you or seek a quiet retreat?
ALP: I can block out the world pretty well, but quiet is sooooo very nice.
Rachel: Getting lost in a book is so easy for me....especially with noise cancelling headphones on. HAHA! Describe your favorite reading spot.
ALP: Picture a big fluffy chair next to a window with a little table for my cinnamon roll, still hot from the oven. Rain is flicking the glass, and there’s a fire crackling in the fireplace. Pure. Heaven. That rarely happens for me though, since it never rains where I live. Cry for me. LOL
Rachel: I think we get more rain than you, but it hasn't rained all.summer. How often do you pleasure-read?
ALP: Not often enough.
Rachel: This makes me sad for you!

About writing...

How many books have you written?
ALP: Right now, 4 novels and 1 novella. By the time CFRR rolls around, I hope to have even more!
What genres do you write?
ALP: Historical Romance
What is your next release?
ALP: Currently working on my 5th novel in my Daughters of His Kingdom Series, titled: So Bright a Hope. Slated to release in Dec of this year!
Rachel: Eeeeep! The covers of all your books are STUNNING!!!! I can't wait to read this one! Do you have any strange writing habits (like standing on your head or writing in the shower)?
ALP: LOL! No, but I ALWAYS write in my bed. I never write at a desk.
Rachel: Ok, that is strange.... What part of the publishing/writing process do you most struggle with? Which aspect is most natural for you?
ALP: Marketing is my nemesis. I get hives just thinking about it. As for what comes natural, I don’t know really. Probably just my love of creativity and imagining stuff. (So eloquent right? But really, a writer needs a good imagination so...HAHA!)
Rachel: I love this so much! Eeeeep marketing....SHUDDER... Are you more comfortable working in solitude or among a crowd?
ALP: I prefer solitude fo sho. LOL But I actually do bring my laptop to places when I know I need to get my word count in, etc.
Rachel: I admire you! I've got to get out of the house every once in awhile to focus lol!

I LOVED chatting with you today Amber! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Amber! I can't wait to meet you in person--and you'd better practice your hugging, because there are lots of tackle hugs at CFRR!! I'm sure Rachel can attest to this!

  3. Amber, if my dream of meeting you ever comes true, you will for sure be a hugger! Lol! I'll get so excited I'll probably scare you to death. I hope you'll still be my friend when I calm down. Lol! Loved this interview๐Ÿ’—
