Here are her blog tour questions for me:

1) If you were beginning your writing career today, what would you do differently?
I would probably have started all of my social media accounts early and started promoting my books in advance.  I would have learned how to blog earlier and gained more of a following from that.  And finally, I would have tried to finish Upon Your Return a bit earlier than I did.  I also wish I had met the wonderful writers I know now earlier; there is nothing like a writing community or support group to really get you through those tough days.  However, I am of the opinion that all of our experiences make us who we are, and I have learned a lot.  So, changing any of that would have changed who I am.
2) What’s the one thing about you that might surprise readers?
I am actually rather shy and being an author has caused me to step outside of my comfort zone in a lot of ways.  I don’t like crowds, but I have always loved helping people.  That’s kind of ironic, right?
3) Tell us a little about your main character in your latest book. 
My newest release is called Upon Your Honor.  Chloe Waverly, the heroine, is a young woman who escapes the horrors at home and stows aboard a ship.  On the clipper ship, she meets a gentleman, Gabriel Hill, who promises to escort her to New Orleans.  Unbeknownst to them both, darker forces are coming for them.
I love Chloe!  I truly admire her courage, the spirit it took to do what she had to do to survive.

Devika’s Bio

Almost as soon as Devika Fernando could write, she imagined stories and poems. After finishing her education in Germany and returning to her roots in Sri Lanka, she got a chance to turn her passion into her profession. Having lived in Germany and in Sri Lanka with her husband has made her experience the best (and the worst) of two totally different worlds – something that influences her writing. Her trademark is writing sweet, yet deeply emotional romance stories where the characters actually fall in love instead of merely falling in lust. What she loves most about being an author is the chance to create new worlds and send her protagonists on a journey full of ups and downs that will leave them changed. When she’s not writing, she’s reading or thinking about writing.

Carole’s Bio
Carole McKee is originally from Pittsburgh, but has resided in Florida since 2002. Most of her contemporary romance and romantic suspense novels take place in the Western Pennsylvania area, the place she will always call home. Carole is a passionate writer, making readers feel the emotions of her characters. One reader exclaimed, “Carole McKee’s books help cleanse the tear ducts!” Her first novel, Perfect brought out so much emotion that she got phone calls from people who were in tears when they finished the book. Another reader says that she laughs and then she cries with every one of McKee’s books.

  2. This is great! So many authors miss out on building their social media brand before their book debuts, missing out on all that build up and marketing. I learned a lot of this on the Speaking of Wealth podcast (http://www.speakingofwealth.com/category/podcast/), a lot of good information like you. Thanks again, I hope other authors learn from your tips 🙂
