#MMBBR #Showcase The Truth About Love: Vol I by Anna Bloom

The Truth About Love: Vol: I by [Bloom, Anna]

Eve Harris has always had a point to prove: where you come from doesn't matter, it's what you aim for that counts. She's got it all planned; find the perfect teaching job and live with her best friend, Cherry, and never ever get dragged back into the destructive world of her youth.
The last thing she expects is to bump into billionaire heir Cameron Wallis on her last day on campus. Nor is she expecting to find that when she gives him a chance to win her over he's nothing at all the playboy the newspapers paint him to be.
Will Eve be able to let go of her judgements and embrace a spontaneous affair with Cam that isn't part of her plan? Or will the constraints of both their families prevent Cam and Eve from finding The Truth About Love?
The Truth About Love Vol.I is the first instalment in a serial About finding love even when you're least expecting it.

1. What is the premise of your novel?

This novella is a series about best friends finding love. Volume one centres on Eve and Cam, two people who couldn't be more different but who feel a spark of attraction all the same. This volume is about their first meeting and how fate isn't going to let the course of true love run smooth.

2. Is this your first novel? 
      If not, what were the genres of your others? Your inspiration? 
      If so, what was your first writing experience like?

Up until very recently I've written YA / NA contemporary romances that are inspired from life and the things I see around me. I still feel a close infinity with my younger self and I draw on those experiences as much as I can to make my writing real. I've recently branched out onto YA fantasy and I'm having a blast pushing my boundaries and creativity, I'm loving the direction my career is taking.

3. Where do you best like to write?

I write at my desk now where I have all my notebooks spread around me so I can jot and plan as I go. I used to love writing in bed, in fact I loved writing anywhere, but now I try and be a little more regimented in my approach. So long as there is a coffee to hand in the morning or wine in the evening I'm all set.

4. Can you describe your book in one sentence?

Two friends, two happily ever after's and a lot of fun in between.

5. What's an interesting fact about yourself? 

I own a dog with a beard

6. What do you like to do when your not writing?

I have three children, one of whom is only a year old so I spend as much time with them as I can. I enjoy cooking, a nice glass of wine, eating out and more than anything I love a nice bubble bath and early to bed with a good book.

7. How long did it take you to write this particular novel?

This novel was a strange one for me. I started it years ago but then left it to rest. When I came back to it I decided I loved the story, and the characters but I wanted to extend it into a serial about best friends, I felt I could get more out of the characters by giving each them a turn in the spotlight.

8. Which authors are your favorite?

When I was younger I loved reading classics. So I love Jane Austen and her sharp perceptions of humanity. In more recent years I love Carlos Ruiz Zafon, I just fall for his words with no hesitation, and I am a huge Cassandra Clare fan. 

9. What was your biggest challenge when writing your novel?

My biggest challenge as always is waiting for the characters to start talking to me. There is a certain point of Zen I have to get to where my plot ideas have gelled and the character really starts taking form in my mind. Some times this can take longer than others, but I know it's always worth the wait, even if that wait is years.

10. Do you have any future projects/novel ideas in mind?

I have the other three novella's planned for this series and I am also working on a fantasy called The Ice Prince about a world where magic has been banned. And of course I've got my Gravity Series with the final instalment due out this summer.
