Dominique Eastwick's 10 Q Tuesday

Tell us about your current release. Strawberry Kisses is a 1NS story that takes place in Las Vegas between Gavin, middle aged Accountant, and Mia, a self-proclaimed rubenesque geek. Both have sisters who just knew they needed to find someone and Madame Eve was the person to do it.
Has someone helped or mentored you in your writing career? Honestly I think we all have to help each other, Valerie Mann has always been a huge Supporter and Help for me.

If you could spend the night anywhere, where would it be? Good lord that question could get me into serious trouble with my hubby you know.  But I would love to spend the night with my DH on a private Greek Island overlooking the sea.

What does your significant other and family think of your writing career? They are all excited, though Hubby does thinks it’s more of a hobby then a career.  Even my Grandmother buys my books, she hasn’t figured out how to read them on the computer yet though…Thank goodness.

Does your significant other read your stuff? Nope he read the first three pages once and it made me nuts and he was nuts having me watch over his shoulders we are both quite content this way.

What songs are most played on your mp3 player? At the moment it would be Can You Here Me by Enrique Iglesias, And anything by Adele.

What do you do to unwind and relax? Unwind who has time to Unwind lol. Ok if I did have time I would take a hot bubble bath and read a book or I go to a park with my camera and just start shooting.

Do you have a milestone birthday coming up? If so, how are you approaching it? As a matter of fact I do, I turn 40 today and I am thrilled. I see it as the middle ground. I am the years behind me for people will listen, I still have some youth so I can follow the hip scene even if I am not hip, but I feel like I have life experiences behind me. 
As Martina Mcbride says in This Ones For The Girls
Every laugh, laugh line on your face
Made you who you are today

Morning Person? Or Night Person? How do you know? Oh Night person…how do I know? It’s after midnight and I am finally working.

Who is your Celebrity Crush?  Karl Urban GRRRRRRRRR(thud)

Happy Birthday, Dominique!!! I also have a partner who doesn't read my work. I once asked for his advice and the pages came back covered in red ink. I never asked him to do that again, but he is good at plot brainstorming when I get stuck. Which is often.

Have a wonderful birthday, Dominique! And congrats on all of the fabulous reviews you've been getting for Strawberry Kisses! :)

I usually don't let my DH read anything until it's sent off or contracted. LOL And when it comes to renovations, etc. I stay out of his way. It works well for both of us.

Thank you Barbra and Jessica, yes sometimes its just best to keep the DH out of the writing. :)

Happy Happy Birthday!!!! I hope it's wonderful for you :)

And my husband doesn't read my stuff either. He does, however, take my career seriously and will occasionally take the kids with him and tell me to get working--on the NYT best seller this time so he can retire :)

Dom, 40 is fabulous.
Or so I hear.
Not that I would know personally.

Here is to the best year ever!
