Today, as part of the official launch of her newest book, Paradise Misplaced, I have the pleasure of hosting Lisa April Smith. Make sure to come back tomorrow for my thoughts in Paradise Misplaced.
Kari: Great to have you here, Lisa.
LAS: Thank you for inviting me, Kari.
Paradise Misplaced is the sequel to Exceeding Expectations and I understand that
fans have been begging you to hurry up and release it. I’m not surprised.
Reviews for Exceeding, including
mine, have been amazing. If you
haven’t read it, people, do it now!
LAS: Reviews have been wonderful. Overwhelming! The book (EE) hadn’t been out more than a week or so before I received a Facebook post telling me that she “LOVed” Exceeding Expectations and that I should “not waste time.” I needed to “get busy and finish the sequel.” So many readers have been good to me – with reviews, e-mailing fun and fabulous comments. It’s a high better than chocolate.
Kari: Frankly, the first thing I was drawn to were the covers of both books. Great choices.
LAS: Thank you. Frankly, I obsess over my book covers. Let’s just say that the graphics designer and I have many animated conversations over each cover before we finally agree.
Kari: I hear you have another exciting announcement for us. Something for readers who prefer the paper-and-ink books they can hold, or don’t own a Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.
LAS: I do. Very exciting! Keeps me up at night exciting. Exceeding Expectations is now also available as a paperback on Amazon.com. And if it isn’t available as a paperback at Barnes&Noble.com today, it will be very soon.
Kari: What about
Paradise Misplaced? Will that be available in
LAS: Absolutely! We’re working on that as well. It’s all part of my grand mission to become
Next Top Author.
Kari: If you haven’t read Exceeding Expectations, avid reading Friends, do it today. It’s always more enjoyable to read a series in the order it came out. Now you have a choice to read EE either as an e-book or paperback. Great having you here, Lisa. I’ve included a brief description of
Paradise Misplaced below. But
for more about all your books, I recommend visiting your website http://www.LisaAprilSmith.com.
LAS: Many many thanks to you and your loyal followers – my favorite kind of people, people who enjoy reading.
Kari: We’re all wishing you the best of luck on your goal to become
Next Top Author. America
All the unexpected twists and suspense, danger and crime, romance and sizzle, that kept readers of Exceeding Expectations turning the pages long into the night, are back in Paradise Misplaced, along with Charlie, Jack and Naomi – three unforgettable characters.
being recently dumped by her soulmate becomes the least of Charlotte (Charlie)
Morgan’s problems after she is shoved off a subway platform in front of an
oncoming train. Her modeling career seems over and she may not walk again. Throughout
her lengthy hospital stay the police have no success finding her assailant or
determining a motive. A handsome detective recovering from similar injuries is
assigned to be her physical therapy partner. Fearing that her unknown attacker
will try again he urges her to draw up list of possible suspects – anyone she
might have angered or rejected. Eliminating those who don’t fit a compiled
description leaves just one possible suspect, an untouchable power broker with
a famous art collection.
Jack, the loveable lothario/conman, in his quest for his next wealthy wife, is
romancing wealthy women he meets at a fashionable hotel where he isn’t a
registered guest. To finance these activities he ever-so-gently exploits
tourists and the local land barons. But whether he succeeds, falls short or
fails miserably, readers can rely on sexy Jack to be entertaining.
understandably bitter Naomi, working on an archeological dig, seeks temporary
relief from her demons in hot casual affairs. Unwilling to be yet another in a
series of her lovers, a rough-hewn widowed farmer relentlessly pursues her.
Will Charlie, Jack and Naomi meet? Will a story that begins on three continents end in triumph or disaster? No predicable ending here. You’ll have to read the book to find out.
