Katiebird interviews Qwen Salsbury, author of The Plan

Doing author interviews is probably one of my favorite things I get to do for Bookish Temptations, but can be the most nerve-wracking. Mainly because I still have this fangirl-like awe for authors. That still hasn’t changed even though I do interact with them more now than I ever have.

I got the distinct pleasure of reading the fantastic book The Plan by Qwen Salsbury recently. I just love this author and her writing, that I asked if I could interview her. She was so kind to accept…

The Plan by Qwen Salsbury

Goodreads Summary:

Day of Employment: 359

11:05 a.m.

 Location: Cubicles outside Canon’s office.

Co-workers: Betting on how long Canon’s new PA will last.

Me: No doubts. Ms. Gum-smacker won’t last the day. I need to place my bet.

Manolo Blahnik’s New Fall Shoes: Mine. As soon as Madeline hands over my winnings.

Emma Baker has never spoken a word to Alaric Canon, nor has he to her. But she’s studied him every day across the office tundra for almost a year. Canon is hard and fierce, terrifying and beautiful. He’s also the most stern, unforgiving person Emma has ever seen. Emma’s co-workers run a betting pool for Personal Assistant terminations. There’s a separate pot for the day one leaves without crying. Not likely…Canon made a former Navy SEAL cry.

He has high standards and low tolerance. Everyone knows it. Everyone stays away. Everyone who can, that is. Except Emma. She can’t look away. Alaric Canon is the single most attractive man she’s ever seen. Bar none.

Canon has never noticed her. Not once in almost a year. She’s not even a blip on his radar. But she will be. His radar will be blipless no more.

It is a goal. Emma has a plan.

Where to begin with how I feel about Qwen and this book. It was the highlight of my new year’s reading for sure. There is just so much to love…

Review: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

   

Isabella Swan’s move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Isabella’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Isabella, the person Edward holds most dear. The lovers find themselves balanced precariously on the point of a knife-between desire and danger. Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.

Come on in and join Katiebird, Elena, Tamie and I as we discuss the book that started it all…
