Show Me How: A Thatch Novel by [McAdams, Molly]

New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams delivers another heart-wrenching, emotional novel in her Thatch series…
After her first love was ripped from her grasp four years earlier, Charlie Easton was sure she would never be able to trust anyone with the shattered pieces of her heart again. That is, until Deacon Carver forces himself into her life, and makes those pieces swirl in chaos. But Charlie doesn't know how to let him in… until a stranger stumbles upon a notebook filled with her innermost secrets, and shows her how.
Deacon Carver is known for sleeping his way through the town of Thatch, as well as the surrounding cities—something he used to take pride in. But that persona has haunted Deacon ever since he decided to leave that life behind for the girl he wants more than anything: Charlie Easton.
But when another girl falls into Deacon's life, allowing him to be himself without judgment for his past, will their conversations hinder his relationship with Charlie … even if he's never seen her?

Molly McAdamsMolly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur babies. When she's not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm ... or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.

Q.  What inspires your writing?
A.  Mostly my husband and ex-boyfriends … ha ha! They tend to make for interesting stories. Although, nearly all of the novels have started off as dreams, and I’ve just put my marriage, or one of my or past relationships, into those dreams, and built off of them.
Q.  What is your favorite thing about being a writer?
A.  I love telling stories, and I love getting lost in my characters’ worlds … plain and simple. I never once thought I would end up writing while growing up, but I always loved telling stories.
Q.  What is the toughest part of being a writer?
A.  Continuing to write only for you. Once you begin publishing and you hear from your readers—which is amazing—you automatically think: Oh no! What would my readers think about this? And then it becomes too easy to shift a story so that you won’t upset your readers. But you can’t think that way. You have to write what the characters are demanding.
Q.  If you could not be writer, what would you do/be?
A.  I would love to only be a stay-at-home mom, but I know I would need to work! I’m not sure. I worked at the corporate office for a security company before I left to write full time, and I liked being at a desk.
Q.  What would the story of your life be entitled?
A.  Awkward 101—How Not To Be Around People
Q.  What is your favorite book of all time?
A.  I feel like this changes depending on what genre we’re talking about! If I honestly had to choose only one story, I would say Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks.
Q.  Which character from ANY book are you most like?
A.  I know you said any, but I still have to say Rachel from my Forgiving Lies series since I based her and Kash off of my husband’s and my relationship.
Q.  What character from all of your book are you most like?
A.  Ha! See above.
Q.  Which book would you love to take a weekend vacation inside of?
A.  Oh goodness! A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas. Please!
Q.  What is your favorite season?
A.  Fall – but my favorite holiday is Christmas. Is that weird? That’s weird, isn’t it.
Q.  What inspired your book cover(s)?  Or what is your favorite book cover and why?
A.  Nothing has really inspired them, but my favorite of mine is To The Stars. I just feel like it captures Knox and Harlow’s relationship so perfectly, and I love the way it looks like a movie poster!
Q.  Tell me something funny that happened while on a book tour or while promoting your book.
A. I’ve sat here trying to think of something, and there’s just nothing—which is quite shocking considering it is me and I usually do something to embarrass myself. So I thought about while at signings, and there was this one time Cora Carmack and I were doing a signing at Barnes & Noble, and we had to read from our books. Now, I was in musical theatre growing up. I can read lines, and I can read from someone else’s book—just not from my own. Those are my words, and something about that makes it super awkward for me to speak them out loud. I have a hard enough time telling people what I write about. (It usually goes something like: Uh, I write about love … and feelings. And … bye.) Because of my extreme dislike for reading from my story, Cora decided to read with me—and she read the guy’s part. Complete with deep voice, and acting it out from where we sat. I’m pretty sure she stroked my face and arm at one point, and I may have started snorting or drooling because I was laughing too hard to continue.
Q.  Are you working on something new?
A.  I’ve actually just finished something! It’s titled Blackbird, and I am so beyond obsessed with it. It’s all new, so you’ve never seen the characters before, and you’ve also never seen Molly McAdams this way before. I’ve never been so consumed in my characters and their world like I am with Briar and Lucas, and it has been the hardest struggle to let them go now that I’ve finished their story! Blackbird releases February 28, 2017.
Q.  Anything you want to say to followers of this blog or those that are just stopping by?
