Author Guest / November 2, 2021

1–What is the title of your latest release? THE FASTEST WAY TO FALL 2–What is it about? THE FASTEST WAY TO FALL centers heroine Britta, a budding journalist tasked to review a body positive fitness app and write about her experiences. Wes is the owner of FitMi Fitness and, overwhelmed with day-to-day corporate life and family issues, decides to take on a client for training through the app. The two have immediate chemistry while chatting on the app and eventually meet in person but working out and running together turns into both feeling like they’re running toward professional and ethical disaster by being interested in the other.

Denise Williams | Exclusive Interview: HOW TO FAIL AT FLIRTING
Author Guest / December 1, 2020

Hi, Denise! Welcome to Fresh Fiction and congrats on your debut novel! Please introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about HOW TO FAIL AT FLIRTING.   Thank you for having me! I’ve been writing since I was a little kid, but it’s a dream to see my debut novel out in the world. I grew up in the military which meant friends coming and going often, but I always had books and writing. I turned to academic writing while earning my PhD in education, but shortly after my son was born, I wanted the escape of writing fiction and here we are. How to Fail at Flirting is about a professor healing from the trauma inflicted by an abusive ex and ready to reclaim her life. She makes a to-do list that includes a one-night stand and taking some risks. The first doesn’t work out, but the second leads to meeting Jake, flirting with professional ruin, and ultimately falling in love.  HOW TO FAIL AT FLIRTING is told completely from Naya’s point of view. How did you decide to use a single-POV narrator? What do you love the most about Naya’s story?   I love dual POV romance…
