We are thrilled to welcome Leta Blake to Sinfully for a quick Q & A on the Will & Patrick Wake Up Married Serial Blog Tour.
Q & A with Leta Blake
If you could travel forward or backward in time, where would you go and why?
That’s tough! Part of me wants to go forward and see what becomes of my daughter and her kids and their kids—but what if the future is bad and I have to return to this world knowing their lives will be awful? Let’s stick with the past then. Hmm, I don’t want to go to a time when things would be unhygienic or being a woman is more restrictive than it is now. Maybe I’d go back to the 1990s and tell myself to write my first book five years earlier than I did. Also, I miss the 90s. No cell phones! No internet (mostly)! Just a slower paced life to experience in real time and not through a screen.
We’ve all got a little voyeurism in us right? If you could be a fly on the wall during an intimate encounter between two characters, not your own, who would they be?
Matty and Rob. What? You would choose them too! :P
If I were snooping around your kitchen and looked in your refrigerator right now, what would I find?
Lots of things. It’s packed! Lots of salsa, lots of almond milk, lots of veggies, lots of mayo, and a ton of never eaten leftovers. (Best intentions!)
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?
To be invisible. Or maybe I’d rather be magic so I could magic dishes done and magic laundry into drawers. Are there any flat out magic superheroes? I don’t think so, right? Their powers are usually limited to one or two things.
If you could trade places with one of your characters, who would it be and why?
NOPE. They are all far too dramatic for me! They’re all exhausting!
What internet site do you surf to the most?
* shifty eyes * That’s a personal question! LOL! But, seriously, Facebook.
Tell us about your current work in process and what you’ve got planned for the future.
I’m currently working on a four book series set in the 1990s in Knoxville, TN. It follows one young man, Peter, through his senior year in high school and his first year of college. It’s part coming of age, part romance, and part something else altogether. In addition, I’ve got several ideas for spin off and related books for the Wake Up Married universe, and I hope to have them out over the next year or two, as well.
Will & Patrick Wake Up Married Serial
(Complete Set, Episodes 1 – 6)
Leta Blake & Alice Griffiths
Published ~ 6th May 2016
Genre ~ Contemporary M/M Romance
Join the fun in this romantic comedy serial by best-selling author Leta Blake and newcomer Alice Griffiths!
Episode One: Will & Patrick Wake Up Married
After a drunken night of hot sex in Vegas, strangers Will Patterson and Dr. Patrick McCloud wake up married. A quickie divorce is the most obvious way out—unless you’re the heir of a staunchly Catholic mafia boss with a draconian position on the sanctity of marriage. Throw their simmering attraction into the mix and all bets are off!
Episode Two: Will & Patrick Meet the Family
Meeting the family is challenging for every new couple. But for Will and Patrick, the awkward family moments only grow more hilarious--and painful--when they must hide the truth of their predicament from the people they care about most. Throw in the sexual tension flaring between them and you've got a recipe for madcap laughs and surprisingly heartwarming feels.
Episode Three: Will & Patrick Do the Holidays
A couple’s first holiday season is always a special time. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve are magical when you’re in love. Too bad Will and Patrick’s marriage is a sham and they’re only faking their affection for each other. Or are they? Sparks fly in this episode of the Wake Up Married serial. Will the sexual tension between Will and Patrick finally explode in a needy night of passion? Or will they continue to deny their feelings?
Episode Four: Will & Patrick Fight Their Feelings
Will and Patrick have embraced adding hot sexy-times to their fake marriage, but as their emotions deepen, they confront whether or not they want to be more than friends-with-benefits. The heat is high (and occasionally kinky) as Will and Patrick struggle to accept their mutual affection.
Episode Five: Will & Patrick Meet the Mob
Patrick has finally accepted that he's in love with Will, but his newfound determination to do something about that runs up against his father-in-law's mobster plans. Will must face the truth about his family before he can fully come to terms with his feelings for Patrick. And Patrick has to decide if this whackadoodle world is something he truly wants to be part of forever.
Episode Six: Will & Patrick's Happy Ending
Sure, Will and Patrick are in love now, but they weren’t when they got married in Vegas. For Patrick, that’s no problem, but Will can’t shake his doubts that a relationship started through coercion can ever become the real deal. Since the Molinaro crime family has reversed their position on divorce, Will and Patrick have a chance to rectify their drunken mistake. But is divorce the right choice for them?
