#RomanceInAMonth Author Interview P. C. Zick and Behind the Altar #contemporary #romance #writer

P. C. Zick has a been a writer all her life and has written books in many genres including eco-journalism, gardening, memoirs and family sagas. Her latest foray is into the world of romance and she has an exciting series planned. I'm happy to interview her and get her thoughts on writing romances as part of the Romance In A Month class.

Behind the Altar Description:

Leah Bryant’s life satisfies all her needs. Her engagement to Jacob Davis, minister of the Sunshine Christian Church, gives her the security she requires after living in a car during her teenage years. She runs a food kitchen out of the church for homeless vets who are living on the banks of Deer River. All is perfect until the day her future mother-in-law Geraldine tells her the church is shutting down the kitchen, and Dean—Jacob’s brother—rides his Harley into her heart.

Leah’s world begins to crumble as she falls into Dean’s muscular and tattooed arms. Dean, who’s been away from his home for ten years, finds himself irresistibly drawn in by Leah’s natural beauty and genuine goodness. As they fight to stay away from one another, Leah and Dean keep finding ways to be together. The more they fight the attraction, the harder it is to stay apart.

Will Leah go ahead and marry Jacob despite Dean’s haunting her every thought? Will Dean exact the revenge he came home to hand out? And will Geraldine manage to keep control over the church, Jacob, and Leah? It will all be determined in Behind the Altar, a romantic story of forbidden love.

Behind the Altar is available for Pre-Order from Amazon: [Click Here]

1. Tell us about your writing. What types of stories do you like to write?
I enjoy writing stories set in Florida with messages about living in balance with nature. I always include a little bit of romance and some intrigue. Now that I’ve completed my first romance, I’m hooked on that genre.
2. What stimulates you to write? How do you motivate yourself on days you don’t feel like writing?
I am motivated by this incessant need to tell stories. On the days, I need more motivation to sit down at the keyboard, I try to do other tasks to get me moving. I might change my location. Sometimes, I’ll work on marketing tasks.
3. Before Romance in a Month, how involved were you with other authors? How long did it take you to write a first draft?
I belong to several online writing groups, and I participate in a moderate way. Romance in a Month was a good way to see that other authors go through the same type of angst and joy at this creative endeavor. It took me a little over thirty days to have a complete draft. Endings are always difficult for me so in a month I had everything but the final chapter.
4. What made you sign up for Romance in a Month? What did you learn and enjoy the most about the class?
I seek challenges in my writing. Each of my novels are a bit different so I thought this might be a good stretch for me. I also respect you, Rachelle, and your work ethic. I loved the motivation to write something every single day.
5. Tell us about the story you wrote for the class. Was it something you would never have written without the class? What about the class made your story different from how you would usually write.
The story is shorter and less complex than what I usually write. I wanted to focus solely on the basic plot devices and this allowed me to do that. I’ve wanted to write a romance but I didn’t know the structure, which this class provided.
6. What do you do differently now that you’ve written a story with the class?
I’m thinking about sequels. That’s something I never did before.
7. What was something you liked most about the class?
I really enjoyed reading the stories others were creating as they were in the process.

Thanks for doing the interview and I hope we’ll meet many more classmates for the September 1-Oct 15 class. Be sure to check out P.C. Zick's Amazon Author Page for more of her writing.

Special Announcement. It's NOT too late.
From Sept 1 to Oct 15, 2014, we're opening up the Romance In A Month group. There is no cost for the class. If you're interested in writing along with a group of friendly, fun, and slightly crazy romance authors, please contact me (Rachelle) at my Facebook page

The Romance In A Month textbook is available now on Amazon. It contains all of the lessons and slides [in bullet form], as well as resources for brainstorming, and a reading list. I hope you'll join us and share our adventure in writing a Romance In a Month [and every month after that].

Watch my blog for more author interviews and exciting news from the RomanceInAMonth authors or RIAMers - because writing romances is addictive.

~*~About the Author~*~

Elena lives and writes in a suburb North of Los Angeles.  She has never lived anywhere besides California which is probably a good thing since she hates being cold and is terrified to drive in the snow. She loves being a wife and a mother to her three kids and three dogs, although really the bulldog is the fourth child who has never matured beyond the toddler stage.

A self-proclaimed nerd, she has been writing since she was a child. She has only recently, however, come out of the closet about this to her family and friends.  They now understand better, but not completely, why she talks about characters in stories as if they are real people.
