Willow by Grace Parks - Book Blitz


Willow
Can a socialite and a technophobe fall in love?


A bubbly personality and a great job in social media didn’t mean that Willow Lawson had it all. Her love life was distant memory and her social life only work related. The maddening demands of life seemed to get in the way of finding time for herself or her friends. 

She starts the Pepper Lane Club as a chance to step away from her busy schedule once a month to reconnect with her friends. 

Thomas Greer, the proprietor of the Pepper Lane Café, annoys her. He’s her complete opposite; unsociable, serious, old-fashioned and dead set against social media. 

Always game for a challenge, Willow decides to take him on as a client. She’s going to prove to Thomas that he needs her help. She knew she would be successful, she just didn’t know she would lose her heart along the way.

Can Willow fall in love with a man that doesn’t respect her profession? Will Thomas let go of his preconceptions long enough to get to know the real Willow? Enjoy this sweet romance as Willow finds love and friendship in the first book in the Pepper Lane Series. 

Six women. Six stories. Six chances of love. One café.
The Pepper Lane Series follows the lives of six women as they share life, love and heartache once a month at the Pepper Lane Club. They might be an unlikely group of friends, but it takes all types to form a tribe.

Author Q&A

1.       What is the first book that made you cry?
I can’t remember the very first book that made me cry, but I have read many tear-jerkers over the years. Some include: The Fault in our Stars by John Green, Room by Emma Donoghue, The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. The list goes on. In most of these, I ugly cried.
2.       How long, on average, does it take you to write a book?
It’s hard to say. Some books take a month, others can take up to six months. It depends on the story and how much planning has gone into it beforehand. It’s usually the editing that takes longer than the writing.
3.       How do you select the names of your characters?
Sometimes a name comes to me easily, while other times I find myself scrolling through endless Google searches for the right one. I keep searching until a name feels right.
4.       What creature do you consider your "spirit animal" to be?
I love this question. I’m a tortoise. I stick my head out when I want to be social, but my head goes back in when I need some alone time. I need both in my life.
5.       What are your top 5 favorite movies?
I’m sure I’m forgetting some. I’m not sure if these are all my top movies, but they’re some great ones that came to mind. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Up, Grease, Edward Scissorhands and Amelie.
6.       If you were the last person on Earth, what would you do?
I would hate to be the last person on Earth, so I would more than likely start searching in case there is someone else. Life shouldn’t be lived alone.
7.       What fictional character would you want to be friends with in real life?
Anne of Green Gables. She was feisty, headstrong and fun, and I think we’d go on a lot of adventures together.
8.       Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Write. Write. Write. Don’t just say you want to be a writer, but go out there and become one. You’ll fall, you’ll make mistakes, you’ll go through moments of self-doubt, but it’s all worth it in the end. I also recommend joining some writing groups on Facebook so that you have a platform to ask questions and get advice.
9.       What book do you wish you had written?
Room by Emma Donoghue.
10.   Tell us 10 fun facts about yourself.
-  I’m expecting my first baby soon and I have no idea what I’m doing.
- Sometimes I prefer animals over humans.
- I would love to see a capybara in person.
- My ideal day always starts off at a café, with delicious coffee and good company (or a good book).
- I taught myself how to solve a Rubik’s Cube.
- The longest race I have run is 89km (I have become far lazier since then).
- My dream is to have a house with a bright yellow door.
- I love eating cereal late at night.
- I one day want to walk the Camino de Santiago.
- I like to start my day off with coffee, and end it off with red wine (not while pregnant, of course). I also spend most of my day thinking about food.
