The Elite Blog welcomes Author, Stephanie Hurt and her new book, Tuscany.

Hello, Stephanie.  Thank you for visiting the Elite blog.  Your new book, Tuscany has really piqued our interest and we'd like to know more about this exciting new title. Can you tell us how you got the idea behind it? 

The idea for Tuscany came to me one morning as I was brainstorming on
another book. I was looking at pictures for a cover and several
pictures of Tuscany popped up. Then my writer brain went into
overdrive. The story came in like a tidal wave, causing me to push
aside of my other works in progress.
Since there were several stories about vineyards, I decided to focus
on the olive oil industry. So, I researched the industry in Italy,
specifically the Tuscan region and the story unfolded. I immediately
fell in love with the characters and their love for the land. One of
my favorite parts of the writing was the journal, which is a key
element in the story. I actually wrote it just like a journal, then
input in different parts of the book as needed.
This book was a work of love and now it has me dreaming of going to Tuscany! 

Here's the blurb for the book.  What a great opening!

Lana Daniels, a simple girl from Georgia, inherits an olive farm in Tuscany, turning her world upside down. She only has three months to decide whether to stay in Italy or sell her grandmother’s legacy. To make things even more interesting, she meets Romeo Russo, the farm’s foreman, and the most handsome and infuriating man she’s ever met. Together, they’re like oil and water. When strange disasters begin happening on the farm, the two have to work together to solve the mystery. Can they find common ground in all the chaos? As the deadline draws near, what will Lana choose to do?

Writer's block and new projects

                                                          Writer's Block.  I has it.
 Well, sometimes I do, and I've been given great advice by writers who've done this much longer than I have.  Usually, they tell me to take a walk, take a shower or just get outside and refresh.  All good advice and has worked well in the past.  However, another way that I think works wonders, is to just start another project.  Go someplace entirely new and different with your keyboard.  It's amazing how shaking up your imagination by heading someplace else with your writing will stir up new ideas for the old.

Sometimes, those secondary projects will turn out some great stuff.  Write about anything, anywhere.  It doesn't have to make sense, it just has to get you thinking differently and out of the box. 

I did this recently, and now have a sequel to Christmas at Wild Horse Ranch.  Pretty soon, you'll see Christmas and Wild Fire Ranch hit Amazon and all because I wasn't able to mentally get focused on my primary project. 

How do you get through writer's block?  I would love to hear your remedy.  Until then, have a blessed day and write on!
