When a book catches my imagination, I want to know more about it, maybe the time period in which the book is set or a particular place that's mentioned or even how the author came up with the idea for the story! Soemthing like a "Behind the Scenes" of movie-making or interview with the actors on their roles or something. (I love DVD's which include all those extras!) That's why I love author sites like Susan Lyons. She has all these goodies for the obsessed reader! (My friend Shana was the one who pointed me to that website as she was the one who first discovered it and was equally enthralled.)
And so, I prevailed upon the authors to tell us something new about their book that you won't find anywhere else (I was adamant about that! LOL) or share with us an exclusive excerpt (I was equally fierce on this point. *wink*). I started off with the books included in the Celebration Contest giveaways, but mind you, not all the authors have responded. I suspect they were too busy to check their emails, and I can only hope they're all writing their next books!
So, you will see such posts soon here at The Romance Reviews (the first one up on Friday) and I hope you enjoy them!
