Guest Author & Giveaway Featuring Devil May Care by Patricia Eimer


Today we have guest author Patricia Eimer on BIR talking about how she created the two main characters of Devil May Care book two in her well loved devil series. She's also offering readers a chance at a couple of great giveaways so grab a seat and let's get started!

Welcome Patricia! It's great to have visiting with us!


I really wish I had a great story about how I created Faith and Matt but the thing is it’s not really all that interesting. Well, maybe it’s interesting. I mean in that trip off a sidewalk and get smacked by a bus being driven by a really hot guy sort of interesting. But only if the hot guy happens to be single and looking for love.
So anyway, I guess I have to give you the backstory. I always wanted to be a writer. I mean really. My mom still has the little books tied together with yarn that I wrote when I was a little kid. But I never thought that a writer was something I was going to manage. I mean writers are like really smart. So instead I went to college and got a couple of advanced degrees and then went to join the working world. Which sucked. Oh God it sucked. It sucked so much I used to come home and cry every day. It really was just a horrible job mismatch.

So anyway, I was about three days from a nervous breakdown and a good friend of mine suggested that instead of losing it I should try writing—like art therapy for corporate idiots. So I signed up for Nanowrimo(National Novel Writer’s Month) and sat down at the computer and nothing. Absolutely nothing. Nothing came out. I had three pages of OMG I don’t know what to write. Over and over again.
That’s when I got hungry. So I headed to Wal-Mart for a frozen pizza and there she was-- the annoyed woman who somehow managed to herald in my destiny, cussing out someone for inviting their family to come and stay in her apartment. And that’s when Faith started to speak. And speak. And OMG she just kept talking. Some days it’s all I can do to shut her up already.

By the time I made it out of Wal-Mart I knew all about her crazy family, and why her brother sucked, and all of it. So I made it home and popped my pizza in the oven and poured a glass of wine and that’s when things got interesting. Suddenly she was telling me about the hot guy who lived next door and how she felt like an idiot every time she tried to talk to him and that was that. I went back to the computer and started writing and by the time my hubby and my kids got up the next morning I had the first five chapters hammered out and I didn’t want to stop. So I haven’t. Now I’ve got three books for Faith and a dozen other works in various stages of finished  and I’ve quit my job, moved to a new city and I can honestly say I’ve never been happier. And it’s all because I had a late night craving for pepperoni pizza.

Devil May Care
Patricia Elmer

Back of the book:
Weddings are hell…
After a month of planning not one, but two, demonic weddings, all Faith Bettincourt—the youngest Crown Princess of Hell—wants is to spend some quality time with her angelic boyfriend, Matt. But when a ghost from Matt’s past walks through Faith’s apartment door, her preoccupation with the weddings from Hell is all that’s keeping her from turning his ex, in all her devious angelic glory, into a down throw pillow.
Which is about when Matt’s zealous mother declares war on Faith’s family.
Now Faith will stop at nothing to stop the craziness and make sure the impending nuptials go off without a hitch. All she’s got to do is rescue one of the grooms and go up against an army of so-called do-gooders, and everything will go back to normal. Or as normal as it can be where the Devil’s spawn is concerned. With any luck, she might just be able to resuscitate her love life while she’s at it.
