Even the hottest sex might not be enough to ease the pain of the past…
Molly Simpson arrives at a beautiful provincial park, ready to spend the May Two-Four holiday camping with friends. This weekend is the highlight of her year—or it was, until Tanner Daivies showed up. Her high school crush is all grown up, sexy as sin, and he’s demanding answers—answers Molly isn’t sure she can give him. She had her reasons for leaving him all those years ago, but now, sex with Tanner is scorching, and when they’re together, it’s clear they were never meant to be apart. But the past doesn’t want to stay buried, and Molly isn’t sure reliving it is worth the risk…

Interview Questions:  Anne Lange – Worth the Risk

1.       Where did the idea come from for the book?
There was a call from a publisher I follow for Canadian based stories.  I used that basis, picked a Canadian holiday, threw in a little personal experience, and voilà, the idea was form.  Though, I didn’t end up publishing through that publisher, the feedback I received helped the story become what it is today.
2.       What genre does your book fall under?
Worth the Risk is classed as a Contemporary Erotic Romance. It is a novella, and it has more explicit sex scenes, probably a heat level of 3.5 or 4.
      3.       Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Johnny Depp and Yvonne Strahovski.  I would say they definitely have the right look!  And I’m a huge Johnny Depp fan. 

4.       What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Even the hottest sex might not be enough to ease the pain of the past.

5.       Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Worth the Risk has been published by Etopia Press, and is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, All Romance Ebooks and Kobo.
6.       How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Good question.  Probably a month, but then it took another couple of months to get it to the point I was happy with it.  But, it still underwent another extensive re-write before it was finally accepted by Etopia. And it took over a year to make all that happen.
7.       What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Any story about two people who fell in love as kids, split up, and then get back together again.  A few examples may include:
·         His Unexpected Family by Robyn Thomas, Contemporary, Entangled Publishing
·         Second Chances by Rita Oberlies, Contemporary, reunion, Entangled Publishing
·         One Starlit Night by Stacy Dawn, Contemporary, reunion, Wild Roses Press
·         That Girl’s the One I Love by Alana Lorens, Contemporary, reunion, Wild Roses Press

      8.       Who or What inspired you to write this book?

Me. This underlying event in this story is based on my own personal experience. Though my life and that of the female lead is very different.
      9.       What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Well, it’s a novella, so it’s not a long read.  It’s a reunion story, and I think people like those.  And I think it’s the circumstances because even for women who haven’t suffered the same experience, they can still relate, because it’s something we all fear.

Thanks for being such an sport Anne, hope the sales will go well and your expectations will be met.
