Please join us in welcoming first time visitor Chris McHart to The Novel Approach. Will Parkinson put together a short Q&A with Chris, and just to keep things a little more interesting, Chris is also offering the chance for three lucky readers to win an e-copy of both books in the Unexpected series, Alex’s Surprise and Saving Alex.
WP: Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Chris McHart, author of Alex’s Surprise and Saving Alex.
Hi Chris, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
WP: When did you write your first story/book? How old were you?
CM: Twenty-six, my daughter was just born and I had some time at my hands (she slept a lot)
WP: Are you a plotter or pantser?
CM: Plotter. Totally. The stories never take the way I plotted it out, but I need a plan, otherwise I get writer’s block.
WP: What do you think makes your book stand out from the crowd?
CM: I tackled a book about m-preg with some paranormal elements. I’ve been told the book has enough paranormal elements so it’s believable, but even non-paranormal readers enjoyed it, since the focus is not on the paranormal aspect.
WP: How do you find or make time to write?
CM: Fight for it. Two hours every day, most days more. I get up early, get to bed late. Write in my lunch break and whenever I can.
WP: What do you like to read in your free time?
CM: MM Romance, of course. And I recently bought my first lesbian novel. :)
Alex’s Surprise: Alex wanted a night of hot passion with Gerome, but he gets more than he ever bargained for. His life will be changed forever in a world where he’ll be thrown in jail— or worse— for being pregnant.
Alex’s best friend, Sam, has been acting strange ever since he met Alex’s one-night stand, but now Alex needs help in order to hide, and Sam is his only hope.
Saving Alex: Not only is Alex pregnant, something punishable by jail time, but Gerome, the father of the baby, is a vampire prince. When strangers invade Alex’s home and kidnap him, he doesn’t know who is responsible, if he’ll ever see the man he loves again, or even get to see the child growing inside him.
Considering himself the father of his lover’s child, Sam has a hard time standing around and letting others plan Alex’s rescue. But when the Prince and his trackers find an important clue, the race to save his beloved is on. Now all he can do is cross his fingers that the scheme they’ve devised will work.
When Prince Gerome receives ransom demands, the instructions are clear: mate a complete stranger or he’ll never see Alex or the child he carries again. Will he be able to convince his newly intended to help, or will those seeking to dethrone his family win this evil game of blackmail?
Caution: Contains a kidnapping, unwanted matings, a scheming king, way too many people that follow their own plans and a highly pregnant Alex.
About the Author: Chris McHart is from Germany and, while an accountant, writing is Chris’s real passion. Chris likes to spend time with family and has way too many animals that demand constant attention. Chris also enjoys landscaping and cooking.
Whenever Chris has a free minute, it’s spent writing on a laptop, a cup of coffee in hand, deeply lost in the worlds Chris’s muses have created. When coming up for some air, you’ll find Chris on a lot of social networks. Check out Chris’s website to see where you can find out more. Chris looks forward to hearing from you!
