Danger on the Loch - Author Interview and Giveaway



Welcome to the Blog Tour for Danger on the Loch by Paige Edwards, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK


Title: Danger on the Loch

Author: Paige Edwards

Publisher: Covenant Communications

Release Date: April 5, 2021

Genre: Clean, Romantic Suspense

Raised by a cold and distant mother, photographer Paisley Clark has spent her life daydreaming about the father she doesn’t remember. Paisley’s dream turns to reality when a DNA test brings her in contact with the mysterious man. With her financial situation a disaster and her childhood friend James Pressley-Coombes working across the pond in Scotland, Paisley is emboldened to accept her father’s invitation to visit him.

She arrives in the Highlands only to discover that she isn’t Paisley Clark at all but a titled lady, the daughter of a Scottish duke. Despite the warm welcome and the comfort of James’s presence, dangerous undercurrents surround Castle Rannoch, her father’s estate. Overwhelmed, Paisley takes refuge in her camera and James’s steady presence to provide a sense of normalcy in her rags-to-riches transformation. But her once-easy relationship with James is changing, deepening beyond friendship in a surprising twist of events. Before they have time to examine their feelings, Paisley inadvertently captures a shocking image in one of her photographs—a picture worth killing for.

AUTHOR Q & A


1) Much of the story is set in Scotland, what drew you to writing in this area?

Half of my ancestry is Scots. I love the country and its people. It’s like going home when I visit.


2) What was the funnest thing that you have done in the name of research?

I loved visiting Staffa and the Treshnish Isles, an archipelago off the western coast of Scotland. We went to see the puffins and took a wee boat to Lunga (pronounced Loon-ga).


3) Do you have a favorite character in the books you have published so far?

I love them all for different reasons, but Gillian Buchanan was the most fun to create.


4) Do you write with outlines and plotting or are you a pantser and write it as it comes?

I’m a mix between the two. I need to know the major plot points before I start (but those are always subject to change). However, if I do a detailed outline (which I’ve done in the past), it kills the joy of discovering the story.


5) What is the most important message for you to share with your readers?

As a Christian author, my main focus is to uplift and hopefully draw my readers closer to God without being preachy.


6). Do you have designated times in the day that you devote to writing, or do you write as inspiration hits?

I start at nine a.m. Monday - Friday (and often Saturdays too) and put in about five to six hours a day. When edits arrive, triple the time.

7) How long have you been writing, and how long did it take to become published?

I doodled a lot growing up, but I wasn’t serious about writing until six years ago, when I joined a writing/critique group. It took me three years to complete my first novel. Luckily, the publisher who requested it liked my story and accepted it for publication.


8) What is your favorite thing about Danger on the Loch?

That’s hard. I love Scotland so much, so the setting is definitely one of my favorite things. I also love Granny. She’s a crusty, superstitious Highlander with a marshmallow heart.


9) What inspired you to begin writing in the first place?

Ever since I was a child, I’ve had stories tumbling around inside my head.


10) What advice would you give someone who wants to publish a book?

If you have a desire to write a book, go for it. It’s not a cake walk. Writing takes sacrifice, hard work, and discipline. It also requires a tough skin. But if becoming an author is your dream, chase it. With a modicum of talent and strong worth ethics, you can achieve anything your heart desires.
