The Pin-Up Artist Interview
Authored by Elle Marlow
Elle, what is the Pin-Up Artist and why is it having such a strong debut?
The Pin-Up Artist created itself. Believe me, my normal genre is western or native romance. I love humor and I’m a big fan of Evanovich but I never saw myself writing a romantic/comedy/suspense. I loved how it turned out though and the reception has been amazing.
Didn’t you have other ideas for publishing this story?
Um, yes I did. It had been requested in full by Harlequin. I adore Harlequin and their staff, but I have marketing in my blood and I wanted The Pin-Up Artist available to ride on Josey’s Mountain coat tails.
That’s the funny thing. No it didn’t. It’s creating its own fan base because of the vast difference between them.
What’s the story about?
It’s really cute. Our heroine, Ginger Garrett is a twenty something year old waitress who just walks out of divorce court and into her life. She is determined to stay single and hopefully, not screw up anymore.
The Hero is a forty plus ready to settle down hot firecaptain. The sparks between these two are RED HOT. Her mother whom she refers to as “Ma” is certifiably crazy and she is HILARIOUS. She is always confusing her words and then will have moments of pure genius. However she accidentally gets involved with a crime ring and our hero has to save her and the whole town. Meanwhile he is falling in love with Ginger the waitress. It’s a beautiful funny romance. I just love it.
I’d tell you more, but I can’t. It must be experienced. LOL
