Review & Interview - Merry Farmer

Our Little SecretsOur Little Secrets by Merry Farmer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What were the main themes of the book? Love, acceptance and learning to over look the past of others. The author showed and told the readers how important these thing are in our life. After reading this book I realized how easily we judge others.

Did the book description relate to the story? The description provided just enough information to grab reader’s attention leaving them wanting more.

Favourite quote... Charlie and Michael wake up Saturday morning and Charlie wants to ask Michael questions.

“It’s Saturday. Saturday’s are for sleeping in, not asking questions.”


Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.

Author Interview:

Where do you see yourself in five years?  In five years I’d love to be able to retire from the day job and be making a living off of my writing.  Right now I’m publishing about two books a year, but if I could write full time, I’d be able to do at least four.

What are your current writing projects now?  I’m currently writing Sarah Sunshine, a novella that is part of the Montana Romance series which should be published late this summer.  Then I’ll be starting In Your Arms, the third book in the Montana Romance series.  After that I’ll either write the fourth book in the Montana Romance series, another Montana novella (my sister-in-law has informed me I MUST write a novella about Jacinta), the first book of my next series, A Duke and A Pirate (I kind of like to overlap series set in different time periods so that it’s not so much of a sharp shift between times), or maybe the sci-fi series I’m shopping traditionally or the next book in an inspirational romance series I’ve started.  See, I’ll be busy for ages with all that I need to write!

Are you reading any interesting books at the moment?  I just finished reading Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and I loved it!

Are there any new authors that have sparked your interest and why?  Well, Courtney Milan is new to me.  I keep feeling drawn to read her work, which should happen very soon.  I’m also intrigued by the success that Bella Andre has had as a self-published author and I need to read some of her stuff.  And I can’t wait to read Ella Quinn’s debut novel, The Seduction of Lady Phoebe.  I’ve gotten to know Ella through my RWA chapter and I think she’s the real deal!

What are some of the best tools available today for writers, especially those just starting out?  Professional writing organizations.  The Romance world has RWA (Romance Writers of America) and it has been invaluable to me on so many levels.  There are classes, resources, but most of all fellow chapter members who have been willing to share ideas and insights and help with networking.  If you can, join a professional writing organization.  Now.
