Authors and Books that Take You Places!

Kimberly Ann Miller is the author of the forthcoming Paranormal YA Triangles  published by Spencer Hill Press. Welcome Kimmy! We here at TheWritersbytheshore blog believe in BIC (butt in chair), but we also think that writing (and life) should take us and our readers to fun destinations. So here we go...
Tell us a little about your book. Will we need our passports?
Absolutely! Here is the blurb from Spencer Hill Press’s website:
A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?

In the Bermuda Triangle—a lot.

Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life--her father's death years ago, her mother's medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her--seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she's gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they're a happy couple... a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying "Happy Anniversary"... and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship's doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she's warned that these "alternate realities" could become permanent.

She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess? 
Wow! Sounds great. So, if I was going to have dinner with your main character, what exotic locale would we be dining at?
Either on the ship out in the beautiful open sea, or on the amazing island of Bermuda.
Who is the character you would vote as "Most likely not to make it through customs" and why?
Hmm…Probably Marcus, because he would be the one to try to smuggle some alcohol in his carry-on!
If your main character was stranded on a desert island, what would be an essential travel item for them to take along?
A satellite phone to call someone to pick her up!
What advice would you offer to other writers embarking on their own writing adventure?
Be persistent and never give up. Breaking into publishing takes time, effort, and desire. Hone your craft, get yourself some wonderful critique partners, and take criticism with grace. I learned early on to listen to the advice of other writers because we share the same goal—to make my manuscript the best it can be. Most of all, enjoy the journey! There are amazing people out there all over the internet ready, willing, and able to help out!
Thanks, Kimmy and Bon Voyage!
