Sundae With Nuts - Vina Arno

April 12th, 2015

Welcome to another saucy episode of SUNDAE WITH NUTS where I have asked my fellow authors to join me for the day for a bit of fun and a laugh. We are romance writers after all!

Without further ado, I am most pleased to introduce the lovely and talented (and very brave!) Vina Arno!

Sundae with the Nut Vina Arno

1: What language, when heard spoken, makes you frisky? (like Jamie Lee Curtis in A Fish called Wanda)
Not language, but British accent, combined with good looks. Think Tom Hardy and Christian Bale.

2. Do you believe in love at first sight?
Absolutely. It’s the only way I have fallen in love.

3. Most romantic or sexiest destination out there.
For me and my husband, nothing beats Hawaii, especially Maui, Big Island, and Kauai. 

4.: If you become a best-selling author and sell your movie rights, what will be the first thing you do when you hear? Other than contact Cd Brennan and offer to share with her, of course.
Definitely contact Cd Brennan and offer her free trip for two to the sexiest destination she wants to visit. And then, I will send money to a literary magazine or a small press that will collaborate with me in publishing a collection of stories by first-time writers, preferably women.  That first short story published makes all the difference to a novice writer. At least, that was my experience. It was a validation and it gave me permission to continue writing. 

And last but not least. 

5. Favorite ice cream flavor.
Pistachio or anything with nuts—how fitting since I’m now officially a Nut for answering these questions.

Miss Vina, it's a pleasure to have you on the Nuts! I can imagine with your debut, IN HIS CORNER, it's been quite a ride for you these days. As for your answers...
#1 has always been a hit with the Nuts. Nothing like a sexy, posh British accent. Top three with Scottish and Irish. We do love our Celts over here, too! And another believer in love at first sight. La sigh. I'm still on the fence with this one. I've been immediately attracted to someone, but love? That seems a bigger, more time-encompassing commitment to me. But then I'm in the minority! I've been meaning to take the stats and post it. Believers versus not - one day I will!
And you are lovely to offer me and hubby a break away if you make it big. We could use it! Our life is our young boys at the moment and we don't do enough for ourselves. Also, your support in other writers is honorable. I agree totally. That first publication is mighty - might not be the Nobel Prize Winner but it keeps you writing and practicing the craft until one day, you may release that bestseller!

In His Corner by Vina Arno, published by Lyrical Press/Kensington Publishing, will be released on April 14!! I loved this sports romance of a hero/heroine from different sides of the track and the compromise and love they find in the middle.

On sale now!

Also, a great article she wrote about starting out as a writer, making that leap in careers. Having faith in oneself!
