Blog Tour: "Break Out" by Nina Croft (Interview/Giveaway)

Today we have Nina Croft here with her new extended version of Break Out. Enjoy and don't forget to enter the giveaway.


Description:

The year is 3048, Earth is no longer habitable, and man has fled to the stars where they’ve discovered the secret of immortality—Meridian. Unfortunately, the radioactive mineral is exorbitantly expensive and only available to a select few. A new class comprised of the super rich and immortal soon evolves. The Collective, as they’re called, rule the universe.

Two-thousand-year-old Ricardo Sanchez, vampire and rogue pilot of the space cruiser, El Cazador, can’t resist two things: gorgeous women and impossible jobs. When beautiful Skylar Rossaria approaches him to break a prisoner out of the Collective’s maximum security prison on Trakis One, Rico jumps at the chance. Being hunted by the Collective has never been so dangerous–or so fun!

Welcome to Book Lovin' Mamas! Thank you for being here today!

Q) Could you tell us 3 things about yourself that we can’t learn on the internet?
1.       I spent two years living in a convent—okay well almost in a convent—while working as a volunteer in Zambia (And I have to say, I’d make a terrible nun!)
2.      The first ever story I remember writing was about a talking horse. I think I was nine years old at the time.
3.      I’m only five foot one. I usually keep very quiet about this as I like people to think I’m bigger.

Q) What inspired you to become a writer?
Reading. I’ve always been an avid reader and thought it would be a wonderful thing to be able to write my own stories. But the actual writing came about because of a lack of reading material. Back in my twenties, I spent some time working as a volunteer in Africa. We were based in a village on the edge of Lake Kariba and we had no TV, no internet, and very little access to books. I started writing then as a withdrawal symptom, and as a means of keeping myself entertained.

Q) Do you have any rituals or traditions for when you start a new book or series?
None. I hate routines, so tend to avoid them in my writing. However, I am a total plotter. So I’ll always spend some time plotting before I start writing. But again, I don’t have any one way that I plot, it varies with each book.

Q) Where do you find your inspiration when writing a book?
Everywhere. Other books I read, TV programs (the inspiration for Break Out came mainly from the TV series, Firefly, which I have watched numerous times). Often just when I’m out riding or walking the dogs I’ll see something and it will trigger an idea. I love the whole ‘what if’ thing and seem to do it automatically these days – usually it’s what if something bad happens though.

Q) If you could be any character, which one would you pick and why?
This probably changes at regular intervals, depending on what I’m reading. But right now I’d like to be Mac out of Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series (which I just read for the second time) because I am totally in love with Jericho Barrons!

Now for a few fun questions.

Q) Summer or Winter?
Definitely summer. I love being hot.
Q) Sweet or Salty?
Salty.  
Q) Sunrise or Sunset
Sunrise. When I was younger I was a night person. Now I’m an early morning person especially in the summer.
Q) Beach or Mountains
It’s a close one. I live in the mountains but I love to visit the beach.
Q) Country Music or Rock and Roll?
Both

Thank you so much for letting us get to know you a little bit better and for being here today!



Nina Croft grew up in the north of England. After training as an accountant, she spent four years working as a volunteer in Zambia, which left her with a love of the sun and a dislike of 9-5 work. She then spent a number of years mixing travel (whenever possible) with work (whenever necessary) but has now settled down to a life of writing and picking almonds on a remote farm in the mountains of southern Spain.
Nina writes all types of romance often mixed with elements of the paranormal and science fiction.
