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 born and raised in Las Vegas NV. I write sweet and complex romance, that the reader has no clue how it’s going to end. I like to share with the reader love of writing stories that amuse and intrigue you.
Crystal: How do you celebrate the release of a new book?
Alexandra: I must say that I don’t do that much for a release of one of my books, but for my first book I went out to a nice dinner with cake and champagne. :) I love doing a Facebook Event Book Release party because I have a lot of friends around the US and that’s my way celebrating a book.
Crystal: What is your favorite snack to munch on while you write?
Alexandra: Starburst all the way for me. Although I munch on a lot of food while I am writing. It’s what kind of snack that I have laying around.
Crystal: Where did you come up with the idea for Wildflower?
Alexandra: My grandma had a sandwich and coffee shop before I was born and while I was growing up she told me stories of her sandwich shop and the people that she got to know. I always thought it would make a great book if I add some romance to it and a sexy billionaire and his out–going daughter.
Crystal: What are you working on now?
Alexandra: I will never tell. I want it to be a surprise. ;)
Crystal: Do you have a favorite scene from Wildflower you would like to share with us?
Alexandra: I just love the ending how all the main characters find happens with their own decision. Well until the second book comes out. I have to say that any part with Lexy Heller is my favorite scene’s to write.
In this beautiful and moving story of love, growth, and redemption among the stunning red rocks of Sedona, Arizona, Sydney—a teenaged Army orphan—discovers that love knows no bounds and life has many twists and turns of fate. After she is forced to move in with her late mother’s sister Blanche and Blanche’s abusive alcoholic husband Dean, Sidney finds purpose and friendship in Lexy, the daughter of Max Heller the City’s most prominent widower and business magnate. Unknowingly, the girls’ antics awaken Blanche’s lost and suppressed passions and stirs Max’s long-thwarted drive to build a loving and complete family. What emerges is the wonderfully successful Epicurian Café, the brainchild of Blanche and Sydney actively encouraged by Max and Lexy. The Café quickly becomes a center of the community, the start of a new life for Blanche and Sydney, and a chance for Max and Lexy to discover true love and the meaning of commitment. An emotional roller-coaster with its exciting twists and turns, Wildflower is an exhilarating and satisfying read.
“Why don’t we open a business? Like a simple sandwich and coffee shop,” Sydney announced with a glimmer of hope in her eyes.
“A sandwich shop?” Blanche asked, looking surprised and a bit taken aback.
“Yeah, why not?”
While Sydney waited for an answer, Blanche just looked at her, dumbfounded
“Sydney, I would love to open a sandwich shop, but it takes a lot of money--money that we just don’t have.”
“Oh please, Aunt Blanche! I bet you can get a loan from the bank. It will be exciting!” Sydney pleaded.
“I don’t think that your uncle will approve. Sydney I love your idea, truly do! I was taken aback at first, because it has always been a dream of mine to open a little shop of some kind on Main Street,” Blanche said wistfully. ”It costs a lot of money to open up a business, besides I have an offer for a job in Prescott.”
“Pooh on Uncle Dean, and turn down that job. For me, please? You can ask Annette how to open a business--she will know, since she owns her own business.” Sydney said begging her aunt.
“I will think about it, okay, Sydney?” Blanche said making her way to her closet and picking out a dress.
