I’m interviewing Michele Sims today, author of contemporary romance “The Fire God Tour”. Welcome to my blog!
1) What inspired you to start a writing career?
I have always been a reader and having a little more time after I retired prompted me to start writing
2) Is your book a stand-alone, or is it part of a series?
The book The Fire God Tour is a part of the Moore Family Saga but, it can be read as a stand-alone novel
3) How does your book stand out from others?
The Fire God tour is book three in the Moore Family Saga that stands out because it’s about a multigenerational, multicultural family that celebrates unconditional love and self-acceptance when life is always about dealing with the conditions of joy, grief and pain. It’s steamy, a great romantic suspense and it has elements of fantasy
4) Are any of your characters based on real people?
No one in particular but a mosaic of different folks
5) Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
Know the genre you want to write, read it and connect with other authors in the genre.
About the Book
Title: The Fire God Tour
Author: Michele Sims
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Suspense
Miles Moore is obsessed with fire. He can’t help it—it’s in his genes. He’s also the famous performer Ari, an international hip-hop sensation. There are some negatives that come with fame—death threats and life on the road among them—but there’s also a lot of good: fast cars, fast women, international travel, and more money than he can handle. When Bella Wahlberg joins his team as the chief of marketing, she seems like the antithesis of what he’s looking for, so much so that Miles dubs her Belsa the Ice Queen. It would be unprofessional for them to get together, but more than that, she’s unavailable—and deathly afraid of fire. But as they prepare for The Fire God Tour, Miles can tell something is changing. Is he ready to commit himself to one woman? Can fire and ice come together?
