Follow Fest Fun!


Don't you just love alliteration? :)

This week, I'm excited to participate in Follow Fest, a blog hop of sorts sponsored by Melissa Maygrove.  You should totally check out her blog, and sign up for the remaining days of this hop to join in on the fun!

The idea of Follow Fest is to introduce yourself to other bloggers, and to make new connections.  Melissa has kindly provided a list of questions, so without further ado, let's get started!

Name: Lara Lacombe

Fiction or nonfiction?  Fiction

What genres do you write?  Romantic Suspense

Are you published?  My debut book, DEADLY CONTACT, will be released in November, 2013 by Harlequin Romantic Suspense.

Do you do anything in addition to writing?  No.  I mean, I do things outside of writing, but they aren't writing-related.  I couldn't design a cover to save my life (I had enough trouble with the bookmarks!).  As for editing...  I grade papers, does that count? :)

Where can people connect with you? Lots of places--come join me!

Twitter: @LaraLacombe

Is there anything else you’d like us to know?  Thanks again to Melissa for organizing this!  I'm really looking forward to meeting new people and finding new blogs to follow.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. David seems very intense about that whole loan business. Yikes.

    And as a former English teacher, I absolutely think grading papers counts.

  23. Hey, Lara. I'll look up your romantic suspense. I have one for free, a Kindle edition on Amazon till midnight. But don't worry, the PDF on GR is still available. A Price for Love, with the books edition titled Ariel's Cottage. It was an LCCN thing that made it end up as two with different titles and covers. Check it out. I'm going to look yours up.
