Friday Fun! Meet SABRINA GARIE :)

Thanks Jennifer for hosting me. I’m excited to be here. I will be giving away one free e-copy of my debut release Fires of Justice, a paranormal erotic romance full of witches and shifter.  Here’s

Where is your favorite place to write?
I love to write on the couch with my feet on the coffee table and the laptop on my lap.  I like the casual feel, it releases my creative spirit.  Since I am chained to a desk at work, I prefer a different arrangement at home.

What is the most difficult for you to write: Characters, conflict, emotions? The hardest thing for me to write is …description (houses, landscapes).  I’m so often lost in my own mind that I’m oblivious to my surroundings.  Even when I read, I tend to bleep over lengthy descriptions in my need for plot and character. When I write, I often have to go back and add the descriptions in, forcing myself to look at the fine grained details of the world.

If you could time travel would you go forward or backward?  Forward, no contest. The science fiction and technology geek in me wants to see all the new shiny things right around the corner and think about how that technology affects our lives and the world around us.  Looking forward reflects my attitude toward life—onward and upward.  I try to avoid looking back. For me that road seems the quickest route to insanity.

What is your favorite time of year?  Fall.  Not only can you wear boots without winter coats, but it’s spiced with flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon and apples and ushers in my favorite holiday of the year. Halloween turns me into a creative whirling dervish—haunted houses, spider cupcakes, spooky costumes and wicked stories.

Do you believe in love at first sight?  You know, I do.  I believe that instinct is your heart and soul seeing what your mind has not yet processed.  Love at first site is a kind of recognition of things on a deeper plane.

Do you believe in love at first sight?  Let me know what you think and your e-mail and one commenter will win a free copy of Fires of Justice (only ecopies available).

Book Blurb
Always read the fine print when swearing an eternal oath to gods and guardians…
Beholden by the sacred vows of her coven, fire witch Calista Reid agrees to temporarily mate with shifter Cullen McMahan to fulfill a mission assigned by the guardians. When tall, dark and damaged arrives on her doorstep, generating enough heat to scorch a fire witch, Calista finds herself drawn to his battle-hardened body and broken soul. His pain speaks to her own deep-rooted isolation and the intensity of his hunger slakes her passion like no other.
Cullen, scarred by a past that left him an indentured soldier to the guardians, resents yet another hump-on-command assignment…until he encounters the compassionate, fearless, incendiary redhead who detonates his body and reawakens the emotions sacrifice and loss had suppressed. But Cullen harbors a terrible secret—one that reaches back into Calista’s troubled childhood and threatens the foundation of their growing bond.

Sabrina Garie is on a journey to create the most kick-ass heroine romance fiction has ever known and the hero who can take her. A believer that big, audacious goals spice up life, she relies on coffee, red wine and laughter to make those goals (and her characters) come alive. When not at the computer, she wrangles vegetables and extra helpings of homework into her star-spangled, fashion-loving progeny, kowtows to a fat cat and reads, a lot. Since it is more fun to travel in packs, come along for the ride. I’d love to chat.

  1. Jennifer, thanks for hosting me. I am so glad to be here. I come to visit whenever I need to smile. I know I can always find a photograph to make my day or discover a new author.

  2. Great post ladies. We are so much alike Sabrina. I have an office full decked out with all the "writer stuff" but I choose to do my writing on the couch.
    I also struggle with descriptions. Sometimes I get through a whole scene and realise I haven't mentioned anything about the setting.
    My mind gets stuck so tightly on the characters that it can't move away from them.

    And yes, I believe in love at first sight. It's what happened with me when I first seen the man I'm married to.

  3. Hey Eden. Thanks for visiting me her. I'm glad to know I am not the only one who struggles with description. It just doesn't come naturally. How wonderful you met your husband that way. I love that story. My parents fell in love at first sight (they were engaged within a week).
