New review in - I'm positively smug!


Wow! BrandyWine from Enchanting Reviews was so kind as to read my book and give me this smashing review. Now I know one of the reasons why I love writing so much! If all my readers would feel this way when they finish reading my books, I'll officially become the happiest woman alive :-D

"Olivia Marsden, thirty-two, on the way to her sisters wedding.
Slightly overweight by modern standards, almost Amazon like, yet warm and loving, and needing a man who would see the real woman inside.

Cole Evans, her sister’s soon-to-be brother in law, obsessed since the engagement party, now has his chance to make Olivia his and his only. He is quietly domineering and never overbearing and needs a woman like her to complete him.

At a bed and breakfast in Atlanta, GA, a day before the wedding, Cole proves to Olivia that she is his, and his only. Will these two continue this unexpected yet steamy path to love, or will Olivia’s sister, Fi, ruin everything?

Mile High to Heaven is a quick peak into the lives of those who do not feel perfect yet truly are. It shows that given the right amount of attention and love, anyone can and will shine. I was thoroughly captivated and unfortunately depressed when the ending came. I wanted so much more from Angela Guillame and her book Mile High To Heaven."

Thank you, BrandyWine! I'm feeling smug indeed...

Character Inspiration

When I’m building my characters, I like to have a “live” specimen to refer to—and conducting this particular part of book research is quite fun to me. I do the same when I’m reading a book: I imagine the characters and as I read on, if the book is good, they become more real and vivid in my mind. Sometimes I’m disappointed because no matter how hard I try, I never manage to like the characters and the things they do or think, so I never quite manage to put a face to them. Making something "real" from the words of a book, I believe, is an intimate process that connects the reader to those words. Hence, for me, intelligent, four dimensional character building is absolutely essential if I’m to consider the book a “keeper”.

For “Mile High to Heaven”, I did some research before deciding what Cole and Olivia should look like—and the discovery of a serious looking Ioan Gruffold and a rare, soap and water Mia Tyler came closest to the images evoked in my imagination :-D.

Here’s what a friend did for me as a little gift one day last week during a chat loop. The lady is a member of my Yahoo Group and she’s talented and kind – thanks Jaycee!!! What do you think? Don’t they look good together in this picture?
