Q&A and Giveaway: Carolyn Brown

Long and Short Reviews welcomes back Carolyn Brown, who is visiting with us on her book tour to celebrate the release of her latest book Toughest Cowboy in Texas. Enter the Rafflecopter at the end of the post to win a copy of the book.

Thank you so much for inviting me back to Long and Short Reviews to visit with all y’all today. My new book The Toughest Cowboy in Texas has just hit the shelves and I’m so excited about it. But I understand that you have some questions that you want to ask me that are not necessarily about the book. I’ve got coffee and a jelly filled donut—and a napkin because clumsy is as much a part of my DNA as early gray hair—so ask away an I’ll answer as honestly as I can.

We are so glad to have you back and to be brave enough to answer our nosy questions! If you could apologize to someone in your past, who would it be?

My mother! Bless her heart, she raised three kids as a single mother in the mid 1950’s when divorce was not as accepted as it is now. I know that there were times when she would have liked to have sent me to a convent or maybe sold me to a carnival passing through town but she endured the trials of raising a sassy kid. What goes around comes around, as they say in the south and now I’m hearing the same things from my kids that she heard from me.

What is something you’d like to accomplish in your writing career next year?

To meet all my deadlines, first and foremost, but I’d love to see one of my books made into a movie next year. Many years ago, I set out with long term goals for my career. I’ve met a couple of them but the one I’d love to meet is to sell a million books—on one title. Now that would be quite an accomplishment for next year.

If you could spend a day with anyone from history, dead or alive, who would it be, and what would you do? What would you ask them?

OMGoodness! Do I have to choose only one? I’d love to have a nice long lunch with Margaret Mitchell and talk to her at length about her inspiration for Gone With the Wind. I mean 20 million copies sold is amazing. And we would invite LaVyrle Spencer to join us and I could fuss a little at her for retiring. And after we’d finished our lunch, maybe I could sit on a bench by the lake and talk to my grandmother and my sister. Granny has been gone for more than 40 years and my sister about four and I still find myself going to the phone to call them so I can tell them all about something that’s happened in the family.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carolyn Brown’s begins an all-new series of rugged cowboys.

“This is an emotional star-crossed lovers tale with tangible depths and an attitude that’s relatable to real life.” –RT Book Reviews

Last time Lila Harris was in Happy, Texas, she was actively earning her reputation as the resident wild child. Now, a little older and wiser, she’s back to run her mother’s café for the summer. Except something about this town has her itching to get a little reckless and rowdy, especially when she sees her old partner-in-crime, Brody Dawson. Their chemistry is just as hot as ever. But he’s still the town’s golden boy-and she’s still the wrong kind of girl.

Brody hasn’t had much time lately for anything other than ranching. Running the biggest spread in the county and taking care of his family more than keeps him busy. All that responsibility has him longing for the carefree days of high school—and Lila. She may have grown up, but he still sees that spark of mischief in her eyes. Now he’s dreaming about late-night skinny dipping and wondering how he can possibly resist the one woman he can never forget…
