Today I am so pleased to welcome Leta Blake to Joyfully Jay. Leta has come to talk to us about her release, Will & Patrick’s Endless Honeymoon (Wake Up Married #7). She has also brought along a tour wide giveaway. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!
Thank you so much to Jay and everyone at Joyfully Jay for having me here today to discuss the release of my latest book, Will & Patrick’s Endless Honeymoon!
Why write Will & Patrick’s Endless Honeymoon?
My reasons are two-fold actually. The first is simple: it’s been a rough year and I wanted to write something fluffy, fun, sappy, and laugh out loud funny (to me). Will & Patrick felt like a natural fit for that kind of writing. In addition, I wanted to write something that was temporarily exclusive to the patrons of my Patreon account (https://www.patreon.com/letablake) as a thank you for the wonderful support they’ve shown me over the last year. I can’t express how grateful I am to each and every one of them. This fun story was a way to express that gratitude.
Is the honeymoon hotel Will & Patrick stayed at in the book real?
As a matter of fact, it is based on the Hilton Waikoloa Village (http://www.hiltonwaikoloavillage.com). I’ve been lucky enough to stay there twice in my life. Both times I found it to be completely magical. It isn’t the nicest hotel on the island, and Will & Patrick probably could have afforded somewhere even nicer, but I decided to go with what I’ve experience myself, so I could add that touch of realism to the descriptions.
Do you think there will be any more Will & Patrick stories to come out in the future?
I do! I have something in mind for my Patreon for the summer of 2018, but I can’t make any promises just yet. However, the subject of the story I want to write is hinted at in Endless Honeymoon. 😀 So, feel free to join my Patreon to be on board if/when that gets started in June. All my fingers crossed that my plans come through this year and this is something that can happen!
What do you hope this book accomplishes?
I hope it makes people smile and reminds them of all they enjoyed about the Wake Up Married series to begin with.
Thank you again to Jay for having me here. And to all the Wake Up Married readers out there, I hope you laugh and smile your way through this episode!
Genius brain surgeon Patrick McCloud never thought he’d fall in love, let alone get married. He and Will Patterson are two years overdue for their honeymoon, and although romance doesn’t come naturally to Patrick, he’s determined to make it perfect.
Will works himself to the bone helping others and dealing with his family, who bring the drama nonstop. A tropical getaway without the usual shenanigans is just what the doctor ordered. But can Will’s family leave them in peace? Knowing the Patterson-Molinaro clan, it’s not likely…
Will and Patrick’s Endless Honeymoon by Leta Blake continues the soapy, sexy fun of the original six part Wake Up Married serial. In Healing, South Dakota, marriage is never boring!
