Belinda Garcia on Being a City Slicker & More @MagicProse #AmReading #Romance #TBR

What are you most passionate about? What gets you fired up?
I’m most passionate about my books. I get fired up when I design a cool cover.
What makes you angry?
I can’t comprehend cold-blooded people who are missing sensitivity chips and have no empathy for others.
What’s your most embarrassing moment of your life?
When I was working as a web developer, I was carrying some papers and reading them. The men’s and women’s bathrooms were side by side. I pushed open the door, walked in, looked around and mumbled, “Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore.” I spun and shoved open the door but a guy I knew saw me walking out of the men’s room.
Are you a city slicker or a country lover?
I’m definitely a city slicker. I like my conveniences.
How do you think people perceive writers?
Well, I would hate to be J.K. Rowling, who is more like a movie star and had to even move from Great Britain to Scotland because she had become too famous. Most people, I think, perceive writers as ordinary people who just happen to have a bubble blower in their brains.
What’s your next project?
I’m doing the final two edits of Rise of the Black Rose, the final book of my Land of Enchantment trilogy that should be available around the end of March.
What would you love to produce in your life?
I have plans for a great urban fantasy series in which there is no continuing story like my trilogy. I’m hoping to come out with the first book this year. I, also, have an original idea for a soft science fiction series which I hope to write some day. I only write very unique novels. I don’t even want to mess with writing a book if the idea has been done well before.
What’s the reason for your life? Have you figured out your reason for being here yet?
I don’t think about why I’m here or if there is any reason for my life. I just consider myself extremely lucky that I was ever born at all. When a man and woman create another life, that egg has millions of options, but somehow I was chosen. I could only have been conceived in that one moment of time, by that one egg, and that one little fishy swimming up the woman’s canal to beat out the other million or so fish and fertilize that egg. It’s really awesome when you think about the odds of you ever having been given life at all.
How do you feel about self-publishing?
Self-publishing is very exciting, and I love it. I have always had a very independent nature and like controlling my own career. I prefer designing my book covers myself. Anyway, unless you’re Stephen King, (who was lucky enough to break in during the Dark Ages instead of the Age of Enlightenment) the author has to do all the work, including the marketing. If I’m going to be working eleven hours a day, seven days a week, I’d rather be working for myself.
Do you know your neighbors?
Yes. I live in a planned community and we regularly have dances and dinners, etc.
How important are friends in your life?
My friends are important to me but I don’t like to be smothered. I write most days and come up for air sometimes to hang out with my friends.

The last thing Miranda ever expected was to see her brother’s ghost at the fallen Twin Towers.
It’s bad enough survivor Christopher Michaels scares her with claims that if one dies violently, his ghost will haunt the place that holds his name. And to top it all, one of those thousands of ghosts follows Miranda to her hotel. The only certainty is the ghost grabbing her under the covers is not Jake.
Their parents’ deaths separated Miranda from Jake when they were kids. Michaels insists Jake brought them together and it’s no coincidence that of thousands mourning at Ground Zero, it’s his best friend she bumps into. Some best friend. Michaels is more like a moocher. The cheapskate never has money, just a blood-stained wallet he broods over. Miranda has no choice but to hang out with the weird Michaels in order to unravel her brother’s past.
As Miranda spends time with Michaels, she begins to wonder who he really is. Against her better judgment, Miranda becomes emotionally entangled with Michaels, a bitter alcoholic with a secret linked to her brother and that blood-stained wallet.
