Blog Tour: "Until There Was You" by Jessica Scott (Interview/Giveaway)

Welcome to our Blog Tour Stop of Jessica Scott's upcoming release "Until There Was You" which releases October 8th, 2012.  =)


1. Can you tell us 5 things about yourself that readers may not know about you?  


Other than I'm partially crazy? Um, let's see: I have 2 hamsters Hammy & Fluffy who talk to me, I developed a serious affinity for Pralines and Cream Ice cream while I was deployed, I'm a cosmetics fanatic, I hate running and I'm a chronic insomniac. 

2. What does a typical writing day like for you, especially when you also are a career soldier?  

HA! There is no typical writing day for me. I try to write for a couple of hours every night, especially when I'm on deadline. And that involves a lot of Twitter, Facebook and random surfing of the interweb before I finally buckle down and get some word count in. I'm a terrible procrastinator. 
3.  For readers who may be new to your books, please tell us a little bit about your Coming Home series? 

 The Coming Home series is about Soldiers coming home from war. The first book is set in 2007 during the Surge years. The second book takes place shortly thereafter. 

4.  What was the hardest scene to write in "Because of You"?

Probably the infamous catheter scene. I had to watch a video of an entubation and everything! But its the one scene that people keep talking about and writing me about so it was worth it.

5. How many books are planned for the series?

Right now the series is open ended. I have at least 2 more books I'm working on right now so we'll see where the story takes me.

6.  What inspired you to create the "Coming Home" series?

OIF and OEF (Operation Iraq Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom) have impacted my life from the moment they started. I wanted to write a novel that people would read about soldiers coming home from war that would help reach people who might not read anything about the war otherwise. I wanted them to pick it up for the romance but also get a perspective about what life is like in the military at war, too.

7.  When you're not writing, what are your hobbies or things you like to do?

I have no hobbies unless you count making pilgrimages to Sephora. 

8.  If you could have dinner with one famous person (dead/alive) who would it be and why?

Michael Sandel from Harvard. I love his books and he's so thought provoking. 

9.  If you could go on vacation anywhere in the world where would you go and why?  

New Zealand. It's just beautiful. 

10.  Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

I'm so incredibly fortunate for the support of so many wonderful readers. I have gotten some of the best letters from people who have said that BECAUSE OF YOU made an impact on them. I'm so grateful to everyone who has supported me over the long road to published. 

Fun Quick questions:
1.  coffee or tea: coffee, hands down
2.  sunrise or sunset: sunset (it means I'm awake because I want to be not because I have to be)
3.  winter or summer Winter (because I love sweaters)
4.  beach or mountains Mountains 
5.  country music or rock n' roll Hard rock all the way!

UNTIL THERE WAS YOU
He plays by the rules, she’s not afraid to break them. Now these two strong-willed army captains will prove that opposites attract . . .
 A by-the-book captain with a West Point background, Captain Evan Loehr refuses to mix business with pleasure—except for an unguarded instance years ago when he succumbed to the deep sensuality of redheaded beauty Claire Montoya. From that moment on, though, Evan has been at odds with her, through two deployments to Iraq and back again. But when he is asked to train a team prepping for combat alongside Claire, battle-worn Evan is in for the fight of his life.
 Strong, gutsy, and loyal, Captain Claire Montoya has worked hard to earn the rank on her chest. In Evan, Claire sees a rigid officer who puts the rules before everything else—including his people.
When the mission forces them together, Claire soon discovers that there is more to Evan than meets the eye. He’s more than the rank on his chest; he’s a man with dark secrets and deep longings. For all their differences, Evan and Claire share two crucial passions: their country and each other. 
You can preorder UNTIL THERE WAS YOU at these ebookstores or wherever ebooks are sold!
