Author Guest Post: C.J. Lake

Hmm, a reading from a mysterious fortune-teller on Halloween...what can go wrong?

This is how my new book, Impulse, begins... Cady and her roommate Torie leave their Boston apartment one night to head to a fortune-teller's shop in Salem. Cady goes only as a favor to Torie, never imagining she will hear more than a few prepackaged, sunny cliches. Instead, what she hears is enough to drive her straight to the nearest bar...

This is where she meets Mick Croft and their stormy, intense, and at times, comical journey to love begins. Without a doubt, I love Halloween and the days, even weeks, leading up to it represent my favorite time of the year. Not only is New England gorgeous in October, but it's enveloped in the kind of festive Halloween ambiance that I include in my rustling trees and scattering leaves, wind-chimes and thunder, shadowy nightfall and fog. Halloween brings with it what I call a fun-eeriness, which I hope I convey in the setting, as Mick and Cady try to stay apart (well, are they really trying? Hmm...doubtful.)

Since October always rushes by way too quickly, I try to savor the details—both in real life and in my writing. One of my favorite scenes in Impulse occurs at a Halloween party, where, amid the skeleton lights and Pumpkin Pie-tinis, Cady and Mick come face-to-face again...and learn some startling news that will forever change their relationship.

I hope you will check out my new book! Also, if you haven’t read any of my “Attraction Series,” please take a look at Amazon:

Thank you + happy holidays!
