An Interview with Becca

Hi Group,

 

Not sure you if you've seen this yet -- it's on the Hush Hush product page -- so I'm putting it front and center. This is another candidly great interview in which Becca reveals that I'm in fact the inspiration for Patch... (kidding of course!).

Thanks, Paul.  I hadn't seen this yet, so appreciated you bringing it front and center.  Nice to hear Becca and see her---always puts a much more personal touch to the book!

 

I'm wondering...does the person Patch was modeled after know who he is?! :smileywink:

Re: An Interview with Becca

Thanks Paul! I enjoy being able to really hear the voice of the author; to hear their thoughts!

 

I too played it backwards and heard "Paul is....."   

 

LMAO!!!

Re: An Interview with Becca

oooooooooooh she didn't expect the book to have fallen angels. Okay. That explains why it's more based on him being a 'bad boy' then anything supernatural. That's why i didn't like the book. I exected it to be a little more centered around the angel part, instead it revolved around their relationship, making everything seem like a filler.

Re: An Interview with Becca

Interviews with an author are wonderful!  I often use them in my classroom in order to allow the students to see how author's did not always have immediate success.  It takes TIME to write a successful piece/book.  My students always hate to revise!  These interviews also help to emphasize the extreme importance of the revision process!!

 

Thanks Paul and Becca for a very worthwhile interview!

Re: An Interview with Becca

Both names start with a "P". Coincidence? I think not...

Re: An Interview with Becca

Awesome! I love Becca and Patch is really someone who learned a lesson through abnegation and sacrifice, not only a bad boy.I'm definitely getting a hardcover and a copy translated to my mother language, Brazilian Portuguese.

 

Great book!
