As the title hints to this is a Spotlight on moi, a.c. Mason! I’m going to answer questions to allow you to better get to know me. I’ve mentioned this before, but for those of you that weren’t there, I’ll say it again. I write fiction so treat everything I say accordingly. One last thing, I prefer to be a mystery wrapped in a conundrum veiled in the smoke of an enigma hidden behind the wizard’s curtain. But here is me opening up to you.
Do you have a milestone birthday coming up? If so, how are you approaching it?
June 15, 2011, is the two-year anniversary of publishing my first book Aequitas I Betrayal. It’s also the birthday of someone very dear to me, so I’ll probably go out to share some red wine and a fine meal.
What is your next big thing?
Surrendering To The Right Man will be the May 2011 Read For a Cure. Decadent is donating that months proceeds and so am I. I’m thrilled to take part in this initiative. My grandmother died of cancer and my mother survived her pre-cancer cell treatments. It’s a cause very dear to me.
What do you think makes a good story?
A must have for me is compelling characters, interesting dilemmas and a unique twists on what’s been done. If an author can shift my perception of a character or life situation, I think they have achieved the ultimate.
Tell us about your current release.
SURRENDERING TO THE RIGHT MAN is an Erotic Interracial Contemporary Romance here’s the premise.
Indy Kent is caught between what she once felt and what she can’t accept feeling. On one side of her emotional dilemma is Liam her best friend and the other his brother Tim. Add to that secrets, passion, and love and you have a woman who needs to Surrender To The Right Man. But which one, Liam or Tim? You’ll need to read the novella to find out.
How do you develop your plots and your characters? Do you use any set formula?
Algebra and I never got on, but I do notice an algorithm to my writing. I start with an image or a scene and the notion of the characters. From there I construct the conflict and add in accordingly to get the result.
SURRENDERING TO THE RIGHT MAN will be released on April 22nd, 2011.
