Interview with Lynelle Clark and Book Launch announcement

Thank you for all the support

1. What is the working title of your book?
A Pirate's Wife

2. Where did the idea come from for the book?
I read a book a few years back from one of our local author's Ena Murray. The gripping tale had me hooked and within days I finished the book. Really living into the whole unfolded drama and wondering if the heroin and hero would come together. Up until the last page I really hoped for such a reunion. Although the couple did fell into each others arms and the "The End" Appeared at the last page there was just too many questions to consider this a happy ending. Agitated and let down I let the imagination run wild and when I started to write in 2010 this was one of the stories I wrote. Finishing it as I thought. Of course I changed many things so that I could not be accused of stealing but at the end the Pirate's Wife was born. Incorporating the previous plot and continue with brand new characters.

3. What genre does your book fall under?
Historical Romance, Adventure

4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
The roll of Roberto, the Pirate is easy Jeffrey Dean Morgan. I love his rough manly looks. Deep voice and Beautiful green eyes but yet a gentleman.
For the roll of Rosa Lee, I have to think. After looking through a list I had to settle on Jessica Biel. Adventurous and strong willed, ready to protect those she love but yet beautiful and a lady.

5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Never judge a book by its cover

6. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Self Published

7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
A Month. But after that it took more than a year to polish it as it is.

8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I will have to stay with Ena Murray's books, Wille Martin both South African Writers. They had the ability to take you on a journey and kept you glued to the pages leaving you bereft when the story was done. Their ability to write good plots with strong characters assured that you would return to their books time after time.

9. Who or What inspired you to write this book?
Already answered in question 2. I also have to add numerous other author's inspired me. Their ability to color with words, creating pictures in your mind and see the story unfold before your very own eyes.

10. What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
The story line is filled with adventure and romance. I tried to show that the hero is also human. Dealing with his emotions in a mature fashion. Allowed them both to know each other on mutual ground without any preconceived ideas from both sides. Both new what they wanted. Old enough to admit their feelings and willing to do something about it. Laying the foundation of what love is all about, trust. But this only came because of honoring parents wisdom, relying on their influences to make the correct call when loving some one and trusting that he or she would have your back. Love is only the glue that brings us together as husband and wife but to stay together you need to feel safe and secure. Protected when everything else turns against you.
A spiritual lesson for every one to consider when taking that path.
