So, wow what a launch party we had! Thanks to everyone behind the scenes and to all the fantastic guests! How to follow that? I’m still in the party mood!
I like a good party, but I love a GREAT party! So I got to thinking of all the different reasons we have parties and what makes a great one. I asked a few friends and they came up with surprisingly different answers.
One said she loved dancing, another said she loved playing games. Me? I love any excuse to catch up with friends (oh…okay, and showing off my legendary air guitar talents).
I’ve been to wedding parties, divorce parties, birthday, Christmas, christening, wakes (funeral parties)- and always look forward to my friend’s annual theme party, just…well just because she likes a party. This year it was back-to-school themed so here’s a picture of me dressed up as a nun (I went to a convent school).
Get-togethers and parties are great settings for conflict and tension in stories–family feuds, alcohol-fuelled arguments, alcohol-fuelled sizzle! It’s a great time to see how characters react in a different situation –do they let their hair down and dance with wild abandon, or are they more the ‘always in the kitchen at parties’ type? Are they the ones standing at the edge of the dance floor or are they leading the conga?
In my debut medical romance book One Month To Become a Mum, a child’s third birthday party is a backdrop for action. With that amount of children screeching around there’s bound to be an accident, right? The heroine, Jessie, is way out of her comfort zone surrounded by the one thing she’ll never have- happy families. And the hero, Luke is so wound up about keeping everyone safe he’s about to explode. Towards the end of the party Jessie begins to relax and teaches buttoned-up Luke to loosen up a bit too and find the fun missing from his life. And this leads to more fun than they’d both expected…. Blurb: Some things in life are worth waiting for-
Jessie Price has lost her only chance at motherhood – it’s a constant hurt, until she meets sinfully sexy single dad Dr Luke McKenzie and his gorgeous little girl. Luke’s intoxicating kisses and his daughter’s adoring hugs have Jessie longing for the impossible. But she’s a temporary locum, the clock’s ticking – and there’s only a month to make all her wishes come true…
