Author Interview A Taylor-Made Love

ataylormadelovebanner

I’m hosting an interview with Kary Rader, author of new adult romance “A Taylor-Made Love”. Enjoy the interview!

Have you been writing for a long time?
I have been writing all my life, but writing seriously for four years.

What inspired you to start a writing career?
My cousin was writing and asked me to read a story for her. She was impressed with my comments and encouraged me to give it a try.

Is A TaylorMade Love your first book? If not, please tell us about your first book.
A TaylorMade Love is the second book in the series. I have two additional series published with Boroughs Publishing Group. My first book published is the first book I wrote. That is not the norm, and it took a lot to get that first book into shape for publication. It’s an epic fantasy romance titled Queen of Jastain. I wrote the first draft in two months, and spend two years revising it.

Why did you choose romance as genre for your book?
There really was no other choice for me. I’ve always been addicted to romance. When I was in grade school and through high school my dream was to write soap operas. That’s kind of what I do now but even better.

Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
Yes. I have the same advice every writer must give. Write, write, and keep writing. And find a critique group, other writers of varying skill to read and reciprocate. Critiquing other writers will make your own writing stronger.

Do you have any works in progress you’d like to tell us about?
I’m working on a couple of projects. My next book is going to be a great bad boy gone good tearjerker called Killing Casanova. It’s scheduled to release this summer. The Keynote is: When Violet Murphy’s Boss begs her to convince his dying mother, they’re getting married, Violet finds that being trapped in a pretend relationship with the sexy playboy leaves her with two choices: falling in love or killing the handsome Casanova.
Thanks for having me today. I enjoyed the questions.

About The Book

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071]Title: A Taylor-Made Love

Author: Kary Rader

Genre: New Adult Romance

When fate spares your life, your destiny is always love

Twenty-year-old widow and cancer survivor Taylor Smith-Taylor is running her late husband’s billion-dollar gaming business because she’s made a vow to keep TME—and Gavin’s memory—alive. But she’s falling hard for her sexy attorney Brad Richards, and it’s not just their professional connection that has her tied in knots.

When Taylor’s new idea takes off, she relies on Brad to help. Using company funds to back the innovative project, they begin a tumultuous affair and a multi-million dollar negotiation that could dominate the market or put the company in jeopardy.

As the corporate dealings escalate, their volatile relationship leaves their priorities more tangled than their bed sheets, and a fatal accounting error divides them, putting the company on the brink of bankruptcy. Brad pushes Taylor to embrace her idea, and him, by selling TME—a decision that, for her, goes deeper than money. When she refuses, it seems easier for both to walk away, and only a perspective from the grave can help her realize her future comes down to one choice: the love she’ll lose or the love she’ll make.

Praise for A Taylor-Made Life

WINNER of the 2014 RomCon Reader’s Choice Award

FINALIST in the 2015 EPIC (Electronic Publishing Industry Coalition) eBook Awards

Seven years ago while I was pregnant with my youngest child, my husband was diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma cancer. He went through surgery, chemo and was pronounced cancer-free two weeks before my son Brady was born. I never dealt with those emotions I experienced while he was sick. There wasn’t time. But three years ago when a friend’s daughter was diagnosed with cancer, all of them came flooding back. As a result, I wrote A Taylor-Made Life.

A Taylor-Made Life became an Amazon Bestseller and I’ve received letters from all over the world (e.g.UK, France, Uganda) saying how the story has touched hearts. It has a 4.21 Goodreads average with over 400 ratings and recently won the 2014 RomCon Reader’s Choice Award. The story is a finalist in the 2015 Electroinc Publishing Industy Coalition’s (EPIC) eBook Award. ATML also won several RWA chapter contests. It continues to touch people with its special message.

“A Taylor-Made Life is one of the best books I’ve read this year and it’s not one I’ll soon forget… Taylor and Gavin stole my heart and my breath, and I wasn’t ready to let them go.” – Nikki Barrett, Storm Goddess Book Reviews

“Beautifully written, and I would dare anyone not to cry….. Gavin and Taylor have such depth and emotion, it’s hard not to fall in love with them. These two characters will remain in my memory forever.” – Melissa Limoges, Insert Clever Quip Here Book Reviews
