Hellooooo there! 😀 Today I have romance author, Erin Bevan, for an interview! Her latest novel, WEDDING DAY, just released a few days ago and I’m thrilled to have her stop by today. Without further ado, here’s Erin!
Welcome, Erin! Tell us about WEDDING DAY. 😀
Hey LD! Thanks for having me. My latest book, Wedding Day, just released on April 13. It’s about a tough riding cowboy home resting with an injury. All in good fun, his brother makes a bet that he can’t land the new again veterinarian that’s come back to live in Frisbee. Dallas isn’t one to back down from his brother, so he takes the bet except he has no intentions of seriously dating this lady. Win the bet, and it’s over, or so he thinks.
Ha, sounds like fun! What was the hardest thing about writing this book? The easiest?
Probably the amount of rewrites I had to do. It’s taken four years for this book to see the light of day, but the time has finally come!
And cheers to that! *tips wine glass* If you could bring one of your characters (villain or hero) to life, who would you chose? Why?
Oh, that’s hard. Probably the best friend Spencer. She’s the type of friend I would like to have, and she’s very fashionable. She could help me out!
Great answer! And fun. 😀 Speaking of fun, Paramount Pictures wants to make a movie about your latest novel. Who plays the main characters?
Yah!! Perhaps Dallas is played by Jesse Meltcalfe. (YUM)
Brittany Snow would be a good Cassie,
and as silly as this sounds, I always pictured Miss Kay from Duck Dynasty as the mother but with acting skills!
Haha! Awesome! Great choices. 😀 So tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a wife and mother of three. I’m an avid coffee drinker and spend most mornings at the local YMCA. If I don’t exercise, my brain doesn’t work.
Agreed on the coffee drinking and exercise (although I surely could use more of both ;)). Tell us one thing about yourself your readers may not know about you.
Umm… I don’t know! I lived in South Korea for a few years. Maybe you don’t know that!
I did not! That is very cool! Someday I will visit. 😉 What are you working on now?
Right now, I am working on edits for my follow up release after Wedding Day. I currently don’t have a release date on this book yet. Perhaps early next year. And beginning next week, I’m taking a little break. I’m going to read a few books on craft and perfect some outlines for the next three stories I have in mind before I began actually writing again.
Fantastic! And I totally get the need for downtime. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by–it’s been a pleasure! But don’t go too far yet, Dear Reader…here’s more about WEDDING DAY!
Famous Bull Rider Dallas Day met Cassie Bailey briefly in high school, but her plain looks and quiet personality left no lasting impression on him. Cassie, however, couldn’t say the same about Dallas.
Their paths cross again ten years later when Dallas is home recovering from an injury, and Cassie is the only veterinarian who volunteers her services at the home-town rodeo. She’s jump-starting her new practice, and every eligible man within a ten-mile radius is trying to land a date with the attractive vet.
Dallas’ older brother bets him that, even with all his charm and fame, Dallas can’t land a date with the reserved lady vet. Not one to turn down a challenge, Dallas makes it his mission to win a date with Cassie. After seeing her, he realizes they’ve met before, but he doesn’t remember her being so pretty. His persistence pays off, but when Cassie finds out about the bet, their new love is put to the test.
“Is there anything I can help you with?” A deep voice asked from behind her.
“No, I think we have it.” She hopped down from the pen. Glacier blue eyes locked with hers. She would know his eyes anywhere. Her heart quickened just as it did the first time she’d ever laid her gaze upon him, and a tingling sensation shot through her.
Dallas looked older than she remembered, broader, gruffer, but still sexy.
Tucker, you have Tucker.
Where was he, anyway? In her haste to get ready, she’d forgotten to call him.
“Dallas? Yeah, we can use a hand.” Chevy still fumbled with the lock. “Can you come over here and help me with Knuckle Head? Dr. Bailey wants him to walk around so she can get a closer look.”
“I really don’t think that’s necessary–”
“I would love to help. That’s why I’m here.” Dallas jogged to the front of the bull and grabbed the lead rope with his left hand. A plastered cast circled his right wrist and rose halfway up his forearm.
She turned to Spencer and furrowed her brow.
Spencer stared back at her and displayed her pageant winning 2005 Miss Frisbee smile, her thumb up in the air. Some friend she was.
Dallas and Chevy led the bull out of the pen while she observed the bull’s gait.
“Let’s get him over by a water hose. I want to get a closer look at his foot.” She pointed toward a washing station and followed behind the men as they led the bull, sure to steer clear of Knuckle Head’s hind legs in the event he wanted to kick her.
From her position, she had a clear view of Dallas’s backside. Everything appeared to be as tight as she remembered, which did nothing to settle those distracting tingling sensations.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Erin Bevan was born and raised in Southwest Arkansas. She spent her teenage years working for her aunt at the local gas station flipping burgers and making milkshakes, dreaming of the day when something better would come her way, and it did in the form of a five foot six, one hundred and fifty pound engineer.
Fast forward ten years later, she found herself stuck inside an apartment in South Korea while her daughter went to preschool and her husband went to work. Alone and unable to speak the local language she turned to books for a friend. After reading a few hundred in such a short time, she decided to try her hand at writing one.
That first one sucked, but by the fifth and sixth book, Erin started to get the hang of this writing thing. Getting the first contract in the mail was a dream come true. Now, with three babies at home, she squeezes in stories one word at a time, one sentence at a time, one day at a time.
She’s a full time mom, a full time wife, with a little writer sprinkled in whenever she can get the chance. And the laundry? Well, it’s best not to open the washroom door!
