Title: Checked Into Love
Series: Bachelorette Party Book 2
Author: Rochelle Paige
Genre: New Adult Romance
Cecily Thompson swore off men a year ago.
There’s only been one man who’s tempted her to end the drought… hockey hottie Jason Campbell. He had her rethinking her stance on dating, but a misunderstanding quickly sent her running in the opposite direction.
Jason hasn’t been able to get Cecily off his mind.
Not a single night has gone by without dreams of the fiery redhead he met in a bar months ago. When he finally sees her again at a friend’s bachelorette party, he’s ready to do what it takes to keep her right where she belongs… by his side.
Checked Into Love can be read as a standalone. Each book in the Bachelorette Party series features a different couple. And if you've read the Blythe College series, you'll see some familiar faces from there, too!
1. What does your writing process look like? Do you know the whole story when you start? Or do you just start writing and go with it (seat of the pants writing)? If you plan it out, how do you do that? Outline, notecards, post-it-notes, etc.?
My writing process varies depending on the story I'm telling. I usually think I know the whole story when I start, but it isn't unusual for the characters to surprise me as I'm writing. In those instances, certain plot points will change from what I was expecting. I tend to be a mixture of a planner and a panster. I write out a high-level outline, and then I fly by the seat of my pants from there. I do my outline as notes at the start of each chapter heading in the file, and I move them around as needed during the writing process.
2. How do you come up with your ideas for your stories?
I'm often inspired by the world around me. One example is my debut book, Push the Envelope. I had already started writing Sucked Into Love, but my son showed me a Huffington Post article about a charter company in Ohio who offered mile high club charter flights. I couldn't get it out of my head, and I ended up setting Sucked Into Love to the side and wrote Push the Envelope instead. That turned into the whole Blythe College series once I met secondary characters who wanted their own stories, and eventually Josie from Sucked Into Love tied into the last story from Blythe.
3. How long have you been writing?
I've been publishing for 3 1/2 years.
4. What tips do you have for aspiring writers?
Sit down and write. Each and every day if you can. Finishing that first book is hard, but it can change your life. Also, write what you love because it will show in your story.
5. Some favorites:
I'm a huge romance reader. I've been reading it since before I should, when I was a pre-teen. Some of my favorite authors are Kristen Ashley, Mariana Zapata, Aurora Rose Reynolds, Julie Garwood, and Suzanne Wright.
I'm all over the place with what I watch: Bull, The Walking Dead, The Goldbergs, The Mick, several of The Real Housewives shows, The Blacklist, Scandal...
It's usually either classic rock or top 100.
Chicago style deep dish pizza, pasta, steak, brownies... I love food. I eat more candy than I should when I write.
