Maggie Greene's Nursing Second Chances



Today Maggie Greene is here talking about favorite characters. Make sure you comment. There are prizes up for grabs!! Take it away, Maggie!

Thanks so much for having me here today!

Choosing a favorite character from my books is a little like picking your favorite kid. You can’t really do it. Sure, some days you are pretty sure you know exactly who win that contest, but in your heart you know you love them all equally. Even if they did just break that expensive family heirloom or get detention for fifth time this month.

Some days I can’t stand one of my characters. He/she won’t tell me what they are thinking, they are screwing up the story line I had in mind, and generally make me want to pull my hair out and refuse to finish the story. Sadly, I can’t very well send them to their room for time out. I can close the document though.

The trick I’ve found is to figure out why they are misbehaving. Did I do something to them that I shouldn’t have? Am I telling the scene from the wrong point-of-view? There is almost always a reason they are acting out. The sooner I find it, the sooner I can get back to work.

I can’t have a favorite main character, but I see no problem in having a favorite secondary character. For Nursing Second Chances, that favorite character was Kiersten’s sister, Jeanine. I loved her so much that she threatened to take over the story at various points. Since I’ve been asked several times on the tour, I’ll tell you that I do have a sequel planned for her.

Alright, time for the fun part. I’m having a large giveaway as part of my blog tour. Comments on each of the stops will count as an entry in the contest. Winners will be drawn on August 1st and will receive a gift basket from me complete with some book swag, bath products, and honey. For more details (and chances to enter), you can visit my blog (http://www.authormaggiegreene.com). Please make sure you leave an email address.

Nursing Second Chances

A Honey Creek Sweet Romance

Kiersten Hart left Honey Creek the minute she graduated high school and never looked back. When her sister Jeanine is widowed and left to raise two children alone, Kiersten moves back on a temporary basis. When Charles steps in and sweeps her off her feet, she has to decide if the wounds from her childhood can be mended.

After his wife died, Charles Webber swore he’d never love anyone again. He buried himself in his work and didn’t look up until he found out his son was sick. Moving to Honey Creek was supposed to make things easier. Kiersten does little to help keep things simple. Though he is taken with her, he soon realizes the casual relationship they agreed on is turning serious. As their expiration date approaches, Charles must decide if Kiersten is worth the risk.

Maggie Greene has often been described as having an overactive imagination. She’s not convinced this is true, but does seem to spend a lot of her time daydreaming up ways to make her characters fall in love. When she’s not buried in a pile of books or typing away on her computer, she’s living out her very own happily-ever-after with a very patient husband and a demanding cat.Maggie loves to hear from readers.

When I saw the title of the blog , I had to find out about. I have a BS & MS in Nuesing and practiced 20 some odd years, 11 in prison, as a nurse adminstrator. This story looks like an HEA eventually, but I bet there are some twists and turns to get there. Definite buy and read for me. Thanks for the review.
