[Addison Fox] Thanks so much for having me today!!
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Welcome! Can you please describe yourself in 140 characters or less?
[Addison Fox] Happy author spinning romantic tales daily. Loves wine, books and hot men, not necessarily in that order.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about Tempting Acquisitions?
[Addison Fox] TEMPING ACQUISITIONS is the first in the Boardrooms and Billionaires series for Entangled Indulgence.
Keira McBride, CEO of McBride Media, is at the top of her game. She and her two sisters, Camryn and Mayson, have restored their family’s failing magazine empire into a bright, vibrant enterprise for the 21st century. And sexy corporate raider, Nathan Cooper, is looking to take them over and break up the company.
Nathan’s carrying a lot of baggage of his own, particularly growing up as the illegitimate son of media mogul West Harrison. Nathan sees a business opportunity in McBride Media, but once he gets into the fight, it’s his animosity toward his father – and proving he can play in this field – that keep him stubbornly moving forward.
When sparks fly immediately between Nathan and Keira, both are in the professional fight of their lives. And a fight for their hearts….
[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?
[Addison Fox] I work in advertising (media planning and buying specifically) and I’ve always thought the world of magazine publishing would make a great backdrop for a book/series. There’s a glamour that persists, even today, with magazine publishing and I thought it would be fun to play that up.
The broad premise is that the three McBride sisters – Keira (CEO), Camryn (CFO) and Mayson (Head of Design/Creative Director) – come together to restore their family legacy, built by their grandfather after WWII. Their father let it fall into disrepair and for numerous reasons, the sisters decide to make this their lives’ work.
I loved the family angle and developing the bonds of sisterhood throughout all of the books (Mayson’s story, MERGER TO MARRIAGE, is out in May and Camryn’s story, THE BILLIONAIRE’S DEMANDS, in October) in addition to developing each heroine’s romance.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words best describe Keira?
[Addison Fox] Fearless, Intriguing, Hard-working
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If Nathan had a theme song, what would it be?
[Addison Fox] My Way by Frank Sinatra
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing Keira is never without.
[Addison Fox] A really fabulous pair of shoes.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things will you never find in Nathan’s bedroom?
[Addison Fox] Candles, flowers, slippers
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is Keira’s greatest regret?
[Addison Fox] The poor relationship she has with her father.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What are your greatest creative influences?
[Addison Fox] My family and friends are a huge creative influence on me. They love me just as I am (even the days I drive them nuts) and believe in me. I see the world through a writer’s often-times dreamy lens and they support and encourage that trait in me.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things do you need in order to write?
[Addison Fox] Coffee or tea (depends on the time of day), my computer and that’s about it! (Oh, and the power cord!!)
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?
[Addison Fox] I read constantly and am always finding wonderful books. I love, love, LOVE the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger. Every one of the books is just outstanding. I also loved The Boss’s Fake Fiancée by Inara Scott. And my favorite book – EVER – is HAPPY EVER AFTER by Nora Roberts.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had to pick one book that turned you on to reading, which would it be?
[Addison Fox] I read broadly as a child but the author who got me absolutely hooked on reading was, like so many others, Judy Blume. When I read her books I connected with the characters on the page in a different way than anything I’d read before that and her work had a huge influence on me as a young reader.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?
[Addison Fox] Lots of things! I’m a big believer in the need to step away from the desk and fill the creative well. Reading, going to the movies, relaxing with a favorite TV show – all are important. I love hanging out with family and friends. I love to travel and I’m a big food and wine fan.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?
[Addison Fox] I love hearing from and connecting with readers! You can email me through my website or come hang with me on Facebook and Twitter.
