I’m so excited for today’s interview. I’ve got the awesome Lucette Nel with me and we’re talking about her new reelase, The Bounty Hunter’s Bargain!
Grab a cup of tea (or coffee) and join us!
Toni: I’m so happy you’re here today! I think this is the first time you’ve been on my blog so let’s start with a little more information about yourself so I and my readers can get to know you better. When did you first know you wanted to be a writer and how did that morph into you’re writing career today?
Lucette: I’m so happy to be here! I always enjoyed writing stories. I was 13 when my parents got a divorce and I wrote a story that was my way to work through the pain. It was that story that made me wonder if I could write to help ease someone else’s pain. Provide some sort of escape with something light and enjoyable.
Toni: Wow, I’m sorry about the divorce but happy you started writing. *pauses* What is your writing process like?
Lucette: Fragments. I’m just kidding. Mostly at work before lockdown, I would write in the morning before my shift starts, for about 30 minutes.
Toni: And now?
Lucette: NEED ANSWER!
Toni: If you could only read three books for the rest of your life, what would they be and why?
Lucette: The Bible – I think that goes without saying♥.
Redeeming Love – It has all the elements of a good book I love. God’s love. A swooney hero. And a happily ever after. So excited they are making a movie about this book.
To Win Her Favor – Cullen McGrath ☺ And I love Marriage of Convenience stories.
Toni: Marriage of convenience stories are the best! Now can you tell us a little about your story and how it went from an idea to a published book?
Lucette: I wrote this book in 2010. It went through several rewrites and a long period of cyber dust collecting. I’ve always enjoyed bounty hunters. It was definitely one of the reasons why I made Jack one.
Toni: “Cyber dust collection” has me cracking up! What message do you hope readers will get out of reading your story?
Lucette: Since this is mostly a clean read, I would hope readers to enjoy it at the very least. Perhaps even realize that the flawed ones deserve happily – ever – afters as well.
Toni: I love that! Why should a reader choose your books if this is the first time they’ve heard of you?
Lucette: I can’t promise a book that will make a reader think, or experience a life changing revelation. If a reader wants something not too intense, I’m hoping they will find it in The Bounty Hunter’s Bargain.
Toni: Definitely a good way to escape today’s troubles. Last but not least, how can we pray for you?
Lucette: Like everyone, the Covid-19 pandemic has affected us. My part-time studies are one of my biggest concerns at the moment. Prayers will definitely be welcomed and appreciated.
Toni: We’ll be praying! Readers, do you have any questions for Lucette?
