Altercation by Tamara Hart Heiner--Book Buzzin

ALTERCATION by Tamara Hart Heiner. This one sounds exciting! There are also a bunch for great giveaways on Tamara's blog. Be sure to stop by, leave a comment, and have fun!

The FBI promises Jacinta Rivera and her friends that they are
safe. Jaci wants desperately to believe them but weeks of hiding from
their kidnapper, alias "The Hand", have left her wary. Hidden from the
public eye in an FBI safe house, Jaci must reconcile both the mysterious
disappearance of her father and the murder of her best friend.

A betrayal lands Jaci back in the grasp of The Hand, shattering her
ability to trust and leaving her to wonder if she will ever piece together
her broken life.

What made you decide to become a writer? 

It wasn't really a conscious decision. It was more like, "I have too much 
time on my hands and I'm bored. What can I do to kill time?" That 
always seemed to be what led me to writing until I got it through my 
head that that's what I love doing.

Who inspires you? 

I'm inspired by anyone who can be a mom and pursue their
dreams at the same time. Too many women fit that description to list.

What would you like your readers to get out of your writing? 

I want my readers to become so attached to my characters that 
they can't get them out of their heads. I want the need to know 
them better to become so great that my readers come back 
for more and more, just to see them again.

Where did this idea come from? 

ALTERCATION is the sequel to PERILOUS. I sat and brainstormed so
that I could write the sequel in a way to wrap up the first book while
still having a plot so it could stand on its own.

Who was your favorite character to develop? 

I LOVED developing Seth. He's so bipolar! He'll be sweet and you 
just want to love him, and then he's a nasty jerk and you hate him. 
But it makes those sweet moments even better.

Any advice for aspiring authors? 

Read a lot. Especially in your genre.

What can we expect next from you? 

Good question. I don't have anything else under contract, though 
I've got several projects I'm working on. So, we'll see.

Where can we purchase your book? 

Amazon.com, most bookstores, or my
website. http://tamarahartheiner.com
