What is my favourite vacation?
A very timely question!
I am writing this blog post from the passenger seat of our four wheel drive utility with the camper trailer towing along behind as we cross the vast outback of Northern Australia. We are achieving our lifelong dream of seeing more of Australia. Children have grown and left home, I have taken on writing as a full time career (and I can do that anywhere) and my husband has taken two months leave from his work.
The vast sky, the huge distances between stops and the different landscapes are making this one of the best vacations ever. We are meeting lots of other travellers on the road and hearing some great tries about the destinations on our route. I have always wanted to see the Katherine Gorge as it is supposed to be a spectacular part of Australia and we have booked a sunset cruise.
I have already written one outback book (Outback Affair is the third book in the Affair series after Holiday Affair and Italian Affair) but I have already collected a wealth of material for future books.
I have visited many destinations internationally over the years but I think this vacation will be one of the most memorable. Follow our travel blog and you can visit some of the places along with us!
Title: Italian Affair by Annie Seaton
An Affair Book
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Length: 175 pages
Free-spirited sex therapist Brianna Ballantine has four days to find a fiancé so she can inherit her birth mother’s Italian villa. Commitment is not on the agenda. Writing her sex therapy book and signing legal papers are. And once all is said and done, she’ll return home to Scotland.
For finance guru Tomas Richards, relationships have been a bad investment—give him stocks and shares any day. When Tomas offers a marriage of convenience to help Brianna secure her inheritance, the sizzle between the sheets promises an affair to remember, despite family complications at every turn.
But Tom must convince Brianna to stay, and make this Italian affair a lifelong commitment.
When not on vacation, Annie lives with her husband, and ‘Bob’ the dog and two white cats in a house next to the beach on the east coast of Australia. She sits in her writing chair, gazing at the ocean and writing stories. Their two children are grown and married and she loves spending time gardening, walking on the beach and spoiling her two grandchildren. She has always been fascinated by all things romantic and has found her niche in life writing romance novels, ranging from contemporary to paranormal with a foray into steampunk!
Her debut full length novel, Holiday Affair, a contemporary romance set in the South Pacific was released as part of Entangled Publishing’s Indulgence line in March 2012 and has been a best seller on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The sequel Italian Affair will be released in June 2013, followed shortly after by Outback Affair. Annie has more books being released in 2013 with Entangled Publishing in the Bliss, Entangled Suspense and Covet imprints.
Annie has also ventured into independent publishing with her de Vargas family steampunk series: Winter of the Passion Flower and Summer of the Moon Flower. Blind Lust (Musa Publishing) a paranormal novella is a sweet romance and one of Annie’s favourites.
In appreciation of the supportive author community, Annie has written a book on promotion to share the secrets of her success: Promotional Tips and Tricks for Aspiring Authors in the Digital Landscape.
