An Interview with Author Laci Paige
Laci's book, Let's Keep on Truckin is a story of Lily who loves traveling on her job since no one can do it better than her. Being out on the open road gives her plenty of time to reflect and avoid unwanted attention, but somehow it always finds her....
When she comes across Ryder, first at a grocery store, then at a rest stop, sexual desire sparks and she knew she had to have him. If only her ex hadn't shown up, igniting a fantasy she never thought possible.
Seeing Alex in a whole new light, Lily realizes second chances are in order, but will she have to choose between the two men? Or could she be happy with both?
Welcome to Guilty Indulgence, Laci. Can you tell us where the idea for this book come from?
My family and I love to travel. A lot. We drive up and down east coast USA to visit friends, family, and to vacation as much as possible. One day there was a large number of semi-trucks on the highway, and I got to thinking. My muse kicked in and wondered if anyone ever hooked up with a trucker at a rest stop, and that’s where the idea came from.
Did any music/songs lend inspiration?
No, but recently I was asked what song reminds me of my story, and Life Is A Highway, by Rascal Flatts popped into my head.
Is there a message you are trying to relate in your book?
Sometimes second chances work out.
What would your characters guilty indulgences be?
For Lily it’s books, Alex enjoys music, and Ryder likes working on his truck.
Will they appear in any future books?
Not at this time.
How did you become a published author?
I wrote a young adult story under a different pen name and had a friend read it. He told me someone would be crazy not to publish me. I took his enthusiasm for my work and submitted it. My work was rejected the first time around. So I took the dozen or so suggestions on my rejection letter and revised it to resubmit. The second time around I was offered a contract.
Why did you choose the erotic romance genre?
It chose me. It wasn’t something I’d ever read before last year. After winning an erotic novella during an author chat with Decadent Publishing; I decided that erotic is fun. I’d played around with the idea of writing something erotic, so when the story came to light I decided to go for it.
What is your best tip for aspiring authors?
Read a lot, write a lot, and do your research.
What types of books do you enjoy reading?
I enjoy young adult paranormal romance, and erotic romance.
Of course, w all admit to our guilty indulgences. So, we have to know what's your guilty indulgence?
Chocolate, wine and a good book.
