It made me think how awful it must be to be in prison and be constantly encouraged to admit your guilt and how hard it must be to stand against that pressure.

Contest ends midnight, April 21st 2 weeks from today : a Rafflecopter giveaway. It made me think how awful it must be to be in prison and be constantly encouraged to admit your guilt and how hard it must be to stand against that pressure. I had to do a lot of research to check I had my facts right!
An addiction to Google! Another inspiration for Falling was when a friend told me of a young man she knew who was a teacher in Scotland — accused of abuse by a pupil.
He was innocent. The accusation was withdrawn but the damage was done and he left teaching. We need a better balance. Falling is the first in the Fall or Break series. Will you continue with the couple in Falling or will each subsequent book feature a different set of MCs?
The next book Breaking — features Conrad — a minor character out of Falling. Malachi and Harper have a little part in Breaking — out in July. I prefer writing books that tell the story of one couple, and end it rather than let it run to several books. Huge reader. I read very fast. I also read up to 3 books at the same time — not actually at the same time but I have 3 by the side of the bed now, all part read, plus the one on my Kindle.
I read according to mood! I like suspense and thrillers. I loved the idea of another land up a tree! I was scared of heights though so I never climbed trees. Enid Blyton was of her time. Some stories like the Magic Faraway Tree can be read now, but the others are dated. I just read anything. Once I was in my teens I was addicted to James Bond books.
Then I branched out to the classics. The one I have the most difficulties with is hard core sci fi. Impossible to say. I think any good author that you read has to have some influence if only to encourage you to write better. What drives me? The love of telling a story, the need for a happy ending, a belief in love, an interest in what makes people tick. I have always written. I started with fan fiction as a teenager for TV shows and wrote my first novel in my early twenties.
I found writing was a way to escape a not very happy time at school. I could dive into my own world, make myself the heroine and give myself a HEA. Falling is easy. Landing without breaking your heart? Afraid the slightest move will trigger a fall that will never stop. Hard experience tells both of them to turn away before lust turns to hopeless attraction, and inevitably to disaster.
But once their sparks connect, the arc of electricity is too strong to deny. Even if the cost is too much to bear. Read an excerpt here at Samhain.
Barbara Elsborg lives in West Yorkshire in the north of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her.
Vulcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide. After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband who can now stop twisting her arm she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop.
Her books feature quirky heroines and bad boys, and she hopes they are as much fun to read as they are to write. I know the mantra—live one day at a time, enjoy one moment at a time, accept hardships as the way to peace, accept the world for what it is.
Neither Malachi nor Harper have necessarily had it easy. Life, for each of them, is a series of missteps and stumbles.
Ten years ago, Harper managed to not only stumble, but crash. Malachi, on the other hand, has escaped a prison of his own. He has a roof over his head, but even that is suffocating. The only thing imprisoning him now was the past.
It was up to him to put it behind him and let the man in his arms be his future. I was captivated and enticed and I loved every second of it. The author put the characters in places others would be too afraid to. She made both characters wrecked but able to stand.
It was as if their intimate connection and the release that came with it was truly an escape from the shadows surrounding them. I truly enjoyed it. Not to mention each scene was steamy and lovely and though there were plenty, I never got bored of them. The mystery element of this was also pretty good. Typically I figure it out within the first fifty percent, and then I spend the rest of the book just waiting for the characters to open their eyes. In this one, I found out about the same time the characters did.
I also have to say that it takes a special author to take a character, build them to be disliked, and then make you feel for them, to the point where you want them to have their own story. This is how I am with Conrad. I want to read his story, I want to learn to feel with him. I enjoy the cover art by Kanaxa. I think the dark shade of it fits the mood of the story and I appreciate the use of texture. What prompted you to write Falling? Where do you draw your inspiration? Or will the series chart the progression of the relationship?

Falling (Fall or Break #1) by Barbara Elsborg
It had great characters and a great story behind it. It was steamy and hot. I have already stayed up wait to late to finish this one and I have to w Pam Godwin This second book in the Trueblood series blows away the first. Book 1 does a great job of supplementing the scene between Alek and his brother in this book.
