Blog Tour: Your Heart to Keep by @AmandaMacey43 #interview

Contemporary Romance
Date Published: April 30, 2015

We don’t choose fate. It chooses us. Or so we are led to believe. 

Holly Jenkins is about to receive a new heart, thanks to a donor match from accident victim, Chloe McQuade.
The victim’s boyfriend, Bad boy Jax, is angry and grieving for his lost love. He hates everything and everyone, including Holly. It isn’t until he meets her that he realizes there is something about her he 
can’t explain. 
Could it be the beating heart of his dead girlfriend - the very one he owned, that calls to him? 
Is the intense pull towards Jax coming from Holly’s own emotions or are they Chloe’s? And why is she suddenly craving things she never did before? 
How do they decide what’s real and what’s not? 

Is fate at play or is it something more?

What is the hardest part of writing your books?
The hardest part sometimes is getting started! There’s also times as an author where you have the story in your head but you have trouble getting it down on paper in such a way that makes sense!

What songs are most played on your Ipod?
I like a wide range of music. Bon Jovi is my favorite all-time favorite band but growing up in Australia, I like ACDC, Midnight Oil, Jimmy Barnes etc.

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?
I don’t! Normally my editor critiques my work to some degree but I need to start with some beta readers! I’ve been tossing around the idea for a while so if any of you reading this would like to become one, contact me please!!

What book are you reading now?
I’m reading Lost in Me by Lexi Ryan. A woman wakes up battered and bruised in the hospital, the last 12 months of her life lost to amnesia. She is engaged to be married and has lost lots of weight but can’t remember any of it!

How did you start your writing career?
My writing career started out with a compelling need to write the story that had manifested in my head, down on paper. I drove for miles to buy a word processor, as I didn’t have a computer. I wrote the first draft on that and then borrowed my brother-in-laws computer so I could re-write it and save it to floppy disc!! How things have changed!

I am currently writing a paranormal story about angels and demons but may need to push that aside for now as I feel there is something else brewing inside my mind!!

I was born in NZ and raised in Australia where I’ve been living most of my life. My love of books came at an early age, introduced to me by my wonderful mother. I’ve always been an avid reader and writing became an extension of that. My favorite genres are paranormal, romance, erotica and some crime. I adore animals and I’m currently sponsoring a Malaysian Tiger through WWF. Cats in general, whether they be small house cats or larger wild tigers and lions are my favorites. I’d love to travel to Italy and Europe as well as Africa, Tibet and Nepal.
