Crystal: Today as part of this Goddess Fish Promotions Virtual Book Tour, I have the chance to ask Alexandra Forry a few questions. Welcome Alexandra, I'm so happy to have you here today. Would you share a little bit about yourself with us today?
Alexandra: I’m Alexandra Forry, author of two contemporary romances, Timeless Endings and Wildflower. I live in my hometown, Las Vegas NV. I just love living in my town because you have everything at you finger tips. Top of line, restaurants, entertainment, bars, night clubs, and such. There is a feeling of joy I get when I am driving down the Las Vegas Strip. I could not image living anywhere but here.
Crystal: Do you have a favorite scene you would like to share with us?
Alexandra: In chapter 2, the main lovers met up at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area that is outside of Las Vegas. So romantic and a must read. That is one of my favorite scenes that I had ever written.
Crystal: Where did you come up with the idea for Timeless Endings?
Alexandra: It just came to me one night when I was very bored, it was meant to be a Fanfic to the 1995 movie Casino but I figured why not turn it into a book?
Crystal: What are you currently working on?
Alexandra: Ah, you have to wait and see!
Crystal: Do you have any special routine that you follow when you are writing?
Alexandra: I really don’t have a special routine I just sit down and write “chapter one” to the “the end”, I don’t go back and forth.
Crystal: Did you have to do a lot of research for this book or any other? If so do you have a fascinating fact that you have learned you would like to share with us?
Alexandra: I spent over a year on researching the Las Vegas Mafia before I got the idea of Timeless Endings. I can’t really say that I learned any fascinating fact. If I did, I can’t say it. “OMERTA”
Crystal: Who are some of your favorite authors that you like to read?
Alexandra: I like reading LaVyrle Spence, she is the author whom I would love to sit down and have tea with. Other author’s that I like to read is Nora Roberts, Danielle Steel. I love reading books that are by my dear friends. :)
Crystal: Is there any genre you haven't written that you would like to try?
Alexandra: Murder mystery would be something I want to try my hand at someday.
Evelyn turned toward the lights of the city. The view was breathtaking as she stood looking down on Las Vegas, lovingly wrapped in Tony’s arms. It was a moment she would keep deep in her heart, forever. “Look at this—The City of Gold!” Evelyn exclaimed as Tony kissed her forehead. “And it’s all ours, Eve!”
Thus begins a heartwarming and harrowing tale of life and forbidden love lost to one generation and found in the next. Caught between a turbulent love triangle that shook the very foundations of the Mafia’s Las Vegas Empire, and a deadly struggle for wealth and power, Mob Boss and “King of Las Vegas” Tony Torino, his mistress hustler and onetime showgirl Evelyn Rosenberg, and her husband top Chicago mobster Charlie “Gus” Rosenberg live and love in defiance of the violent and unforgiving laws of the Mafia. All that remains is Evelyn’s carefully preserved diary left by Gus to be discovered by his daughter Adriane and Tony’s son Victor as they pack up her late father’s belongings. Through the vivid and brilliant use of flashbacks, juxtaposed with current events, we witness one of the most beautiful and ill-fated love stories of the last century. As Victor, a forest ranger who fled his family’s Mob past, and Adriane, an attorney being pressured to work for the Mafia, read through the diary old hatreds and new alliances rise leaving us to wonder if history will repeat itself.
“Come sit down,” Tony said as he led her to the couch.
They fell into an embrace, as the rain continued to pound the window.
“I keep thinking a lot about our night in Chicago,” she whispered, breaking the silence.
She looked up to see a grin spreading across his face while he played with her hands. “Yes, that night was very special to me, Eve."
“Yes, it was to me, too. We never really talked about it. Tony, why were you gone when I woke up?” They looked at each other with longing in their eyes.
“What would have happened if we had spent the whole weekend together? Going to the wedding together; me meeting your son. Only to have you leave me to fly back home?”
“But you called a month later, telling me that you were coming out."
“Eve, my intent was to fly to Las Vegas just to see you. Then I found out that Sadie was pregnant, that lead to a bad miscarriage and that's why I backed out. When I finally got out here you were with Gus.”
"I was really looking forward to seeing you, Tony, when you called to tell me that you..."
"I'm here now, Eve, that's what really matters," he whispered lovingly. She felt the sexual tension building up between them as he ran his hand down her cheek.
"It’s funny how you end up meeting someone, never knowing that someone will be an important part of your life.”
