Guest Cindy Green



Today I am pleased to introduce multipublished Inspirational author, Cindy Green. PLease welcome Cindy.

Cindy , please tell us about yourself?
It’s good to be here today. To put it short and sweet, I'm an author, teacher, maid, mother, wife and accountant. I have degrees in history and education and taught middle school up until about six years ago. Now I stay home and homeschool my two boys. I was born in California and now live in North Carolina out in the country about a ½ hour from Raleigh . I've been married for 15 years. I'm published in several genres: Inspirational, historical, contemporary, young adult and suspense. Those are also the genres I like to read. I spend my (non-existent free time) reading, watching period dramas and doing my best to keep this house one step away from becoming a disaster area. To read my more in-depth bio, stop by my website.
Can you please introduce your new book to our readers?

Blurb:
Best Friends or True Love? Only Santa Knows.

Kathryn Graham hates Christmas. She hates the snow, the decorations, the whole nine yards. Nick Pringle on the other hand can’t get enough of the season. He may be her best friend and fellow writer at Redburn Weekly Magazine, but sometimes his exuberance gets on her very last nerve. Now they’ve been assigned to cover the orphan toy drive story. It’s just a puff piece not the serious journalism Kathryn hopes for, but maybe—as Nick says—there are no old stories just new angles.

Nick Pringle has been in love with Kathryn practically since the day they met. When he realizes that she’s lost her Christmas spirit, he figures he’s just the guy to help her find it again. He enacts a plan to send her anonymous gifts from Secret Santa, but will any of this really make a difference in her? Will she ever see him as anything more than her smart-aleck partner even after their passionate kisses? Then again maybe he’ll get what he wants for Christmas after all.

From where did you get the idea for this story?
All I Want for Christmas is a best friend’s romance. I love writing the best friends romance because it’s wonderful to see friendship develop into love. Isn’t it right that they be friends first as that’s what cements the couple together. I started writing this book because my publisher at the time needed Christmas stories and I figured I could write one. Six days later, the first draft was finished. A whirlwind of writing. I felt as though I was but a vessel to my inspiration and had no control over it. A truly inspiring experience.

Cindy, who is your hero?
Nick Pringle is our tall, tawny haired, hazel eyed hero who is always well-dressed and well-mannered with never a hair out of place. He is Kathryn’s writing partner and friend. Nick is definitely the mild mannered reporter type. He’s the nice guy around the office who is always in good spirits, available to take hysterical phone calls 24/7, and he also happens to be in love with Kathryn. So, it’s no mistake that when he learns Kathryn has lost her Christmas spirit that he intends to help her find it again.

When I came to naming this character, I decided to think Christmas since this is a Christmas book after all. So, I named him Nick Pringle which is like St. Nick and the Pringle is close to Kringle. Nick Pringle. Silly I know, but it works.

Nick is mild mannered so much so that he doesn’t want to rock the boat with Kathryn. Of course, he likes to tease her; and he loves how riled she can get – but it is always in fun. He knows that he loves her now, but he doesn’t want to change things and ruin their friendship. But then he starts sending her gifts from a Secret Santa, and Kathryn starts falling for her Secret Santa because he seems to know her so well. This finally gets Nick to move into action culminating in the finale.

Please, introduce your heroine.
Kathryn is the dark haired, blued eyed heroine of our story. If you really want to understand her character, think “ Lois Lane .” I have to admit to being a huge Superman fan, and when I came to write this novella, I thought it would be great to use LL as my inspiration. Kathryn is not exactly like Lois, but you will see similarities. When it came to naming this character, I decided to use the name of a great newspaper woman. I named her after Katherine Graham, the famous journalist and later owner of the Washington Post. I changed the spelling of the name, making her Kathryn and the hero, Nick, calls her Kat.

A few words to describe Kathryn: smart, attractive, stubborn, and sometimes abrasive. She is the type that puts on a hard exterior but inside she’s mush. She isn’t close to her family, so she puts everything she has into her job. She wants to be a part of the legitimate press instead of having to write all these “puff pieces,” as she calls them. You know, public interest stories. She doesn’t find them important enough. To quote her, “Give me a shoot out, bank robbery or a scandal any day of the week. Then I’ll be happy.” Oh, and did I mention that she hates Christmas? Well, there is a reason for that. To find out why, you will just have to read the book. :) And then there is Nick. He is the one person in the world that she calls in the middle of the night and actually cares to spend time with. But she has never thought of him as anything more than a friend, and a best friend at that.

And one more thing – she is a bona fide Chocoholic!
All I Want for Christmas is available at Champagne Books, Amazon, and all those online book sellers.

Can you give us a backlist of your books?
I have several titles still available on my backlist. Inspirational (both historical & contemporary): A Funny Thing Happened on the way to Your Wedding, Relationship Rescue, Dilemma of the Heart, Snow Kissed. Suspense: A Night of NovelTea and NovelTea Next Door. Contemporary: All I Want for Christmas. Young Adult/Fantasy: Struck by Conscience, Historical Western: The Heart Never Lies.

FREE READS:I’d like to offer a couple free reads to the readers here. MY GRAND EPIPHANY is more of a contemporary, humorous chicklit-like story. You can download for FREE at White Rose Publishing. My other free read is called Second Chances. It’s a historical western set in 1878 Wyoming . Download it today at White Rose Publishing.

Future Projects:This coming January, I have another historical western coming from Champagne Books called Listen to Your Heart. I should also have book two in my Faery Guardian series come out in 2011--Sold my Soul to a Frog.

Where you can Find Cindy:You can visit me at my Website or my Blo, called Cindy's Musing. In addition, I have a Homeschooling Blog and a Teen Fiction Blog. They can also email me at cindy@cindykgreen.com. I’m on Myspace Facebook Twitter and Twitter for my YA friends. And I have a Newsletter. The latest edition should be going out soon.

Carolyn Hughey said...

Thanks for visiting us today, Cindy. Your post has lots of usable information that we can all take advantage of. I echo Susan about your book cover. It's beautiful!

Keena Kincaid said...

Hi, Cindy. I love best-friend love stories, too. There's so much at stake, not just losing the possibility of love but also the danger of losing the friendship.

Sherry Gloag said...

I love your book cover and your characters intrigue me, because they have so much to lose if eerything goes wrong, and at Christmas too.
Best wishes with your new release.

Jill James said...

Cindy, what a sweet sounding story. I love Christmas stories. Even as adults we want to believe in the magic of the holidays, that anything can happen.

Cindy K. Green said...

Thanks Ladies for the comments. I just got home from my niece's first birthday party. :)

I really love this story and characters. It was a joy to write and I admit I love reading it especially at Christmas time. Best wishes,
Cindy

Joanne said...

Thanks, Cindy, for your blurb on your new inspirational. Both the hero and heroine sound perfect for your story.

Robin Covington said...
