Interview with Janice Hanna Thompson
Howdy y'all! Crystal here with another sit-down session with a great lady who hails from my neck of the woods. :) Janice Hanna Thompson is a fantastic writer of "love, laughter, and happily ever afters." This past weekend I read two of her books in two days. Trust me when I say you won't regret picking up one of her novels. :) That said, let's get on with the interview, so you can learn about her upcoming release.
My upcoming book (The Dream Dress) is about a "closet" dress designer (Gabi Delgado) who lives on Galveston Island. I say "closet" because she keeps her wedding dress designs a secret. She works as an alterations specialist at Haute Couture, Galveston's premiere bridal shop. If her boss (temperamental dress designer Demetri Markowitz) finds out she's designing gowns, he will be furious. To his way of thinking, there's only room for one designer on the island. When the news breaks, Gabi's job is in jeopardy. Fortunately, her love life is in full swing.
Yes, there's a funny scene where a bride comes into Haute Couture to try on her newly-altered gown. She has just had surgery to morph her B's to DD's (hence the need for the alterations). When she gets the very expensive gown on, there's a major catastrophe involving a tray of eclairs. Needless to say, the bride's gown is almost destroyed and Gabi gets the blame. Might not sound very funny, but it comes out in my usual "laugh a minute" style.The Weddings by Design series is a continuation of the "Weddings by Bella" series, which began a few years back. The story gained such popularity with readers that the publisher offered me a second series. I've loved every minute of it. Especially love keeping my "old" characters alive!
Thanks so much for sharing with us today, Janice. I've enjoyed learning more about your upcoming release and wish you great success as you continue to write for God.
All right, does anyone else have a question for Janice?
