Book Tour: Two Worlds,Two Men by Joy Frawley @GoddessFish #Giveaway





Two Worlds,Two Men

by Joy Frawley


Blurb:

Jocelyn and Neely are having a perfectly pleasant dinner at the Sheep Heid Inn when it happens: Jocelyn suddenly finds herself sitting across the table, not from Neely, but a strange man dressed in medieval garb. This man is no apparition. His eyes, the deepest brown, clearly look on her in intimacy; his touch causes her pulse to rise.  Jocelyn realizes two things: from his clothes, he is clearly an aristocrat, and that she, Jocelyn Stewart, seems to be in some sort of romantic relationship with him! Minutes later Jocelyn returns to Neely, in the present day, weak and terrified. Together they begin to unravel the forgotten past and find themselves facing the reality of medieval Scotland. A strange world steeped in folklore and superstition; where life begins and often ends with the sword. As Jocelyn travels back to medieval times she learns that the man she keeps seeing is no other than Sir Colin Campbell of the powerful Campbell Clan. When Jocelyn is with Colin, she wants never to leave his side; then she returns to the present and cannot imagine herself with anyone but Neely. Jocelyn struggles with a choice. Which man will gain her heart when both offer such different love? She is in love with two different men in two different worlds.



Excerpt:

Jocelyn looked around for the driver who was supposed to be waiting for her arrival with a sign. She had hired someone to pick her up because, as an American and first-time visitor to Scotland, she had figured it would be less stressful.

She didn’t see the driver anywhere; then, just as she started feeling nervous, she saw a man holding a sign with her name on it. And what a man he was! He was broad shouldered, strong and had dark brown hair with reddish tints. He exuded masculinity like some cologne, and even across the airport, she thought she could smell it. Smoothing her unruly hair, she started to walk over to him.

The man, seeing her approach him, took a step toward her. “Are you, Jocelyn?”

When he spoke her name, she found herself frozen in place unable to respond. She’d heard this voice before; she knew this voice. This man spoke her name exactly like the dream she had had all those years ago! She had been stirred awake in bed by a voice of a man, who spoke her name with a Scottish accent. His voice was gentle and low; as if he wanted to gain her attention, but not cause her alarm. Jocelyn had clutched the sheets to her chest and stared out into the darkness of her bedroom almost feeling his intimate presence beside her. She lifted her hand up to her ear having sworn his warm breath had brushed her skin. Jocelyn remembered she had turned her head, anxiously, toward the pillow next to her and almost thought she would be looking into the eyes of a stranger; yet she had not been frightened. This man, his voice, somehow comforted her.

Now, she stood in the airport and caught her breath as she faced the man before her. Her eyes searched his face for something; though what it was she wasn’t sure. Jocelyn felt her heart beating so fast she was certain the man could hear it as memories flooded her mind of that night so long ago when he or someone spoke her name in the darkness. Was that the reason for her vacation to Scotland? Was she unconsciously trying to find the man?



An Interview with Joy Frawley

What inspired you to write Two Worlds Two Men?

Two Worlds Two Men is time travel romance. I enjoyed romance books in the past as a reader and one day I was inspired to begin writing my own while on a walk. It truly came out of the blue and was completely random.

When or at what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I was 40 years old when I realized I wanted to write. I always enjoyed writing, but never thought of creating a manuscript and try to sell it to readers till a couple years ago.

What is the earliest age you remember reading your first book?

Probably 6-8 years old reading the Aristocat’s. I loved that book and I thought Duchess, the beautiful white cat, was just the prettiest cat I ever saw. She even wore a jewel necklace! If you haven’t read it before it really is a fun children’s book. Plus, I recall that my copy had amazing color pictures of all the cats which made it just incredible as a kid to read and stare at.

What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

Pretty much anything though I tend to read more non-fiction.

What is your favorite book?

I have a few, but Gifts of the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh is a favorite. I also like Under the Tucson Sun by Frances Mayes.

You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

If I had to pick an author that I most want to meet and spend time with it would be Dr. Wayne Dyer. He has written several books that have made a difference in my life as far as self-development. I would love to have a few hours with him and pick his brain about all the amazing lectures and stories he has to share. It would be an amazing conversation.

If you could travel back in time here on earth to any place or time. Where would you go and why?

Probably the seventies as a 21 year old! I love the music and I dig the clothes from back then. I could rock a pair of bell bottoms! I was born in the early seventies, but that didn’t allow me to get old enough to live the era for myself because I was just a youngster. I would most likely have been one of the “wild ones” you read about or knew always rocking at the concerts and being loud. It always struck me as one outrageous time to live in the United States and have some groovy stories to share.

When writing a book do you find that writing comes easy for you or is it a difficult task?

I really find writing easy and magical. There is little negative feedback I have to give on it as a whole.

Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

I have a Puggle named Piggs and a Corgi names Diggs. They are my babies and little walking buddies.

What is your "to die for", favorite food/foods to eat?

Nachos are my most loved, but I eat about anything. It’s funny, but I think I could almost go meatless in my diet if I took the time to learn more vegetarian recipes. Still, I probably will always eat some meat, but there really is some amazing recipes and spices to utilize if you know what you are doing.

Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?


Stay true to your dream and persevere. You are your own worst enemy or best supporter so pay attention to your inner talk and how you treat yourself. When I became aware of my self-defeating talk I began to replace it with encouraging words. This in turn lead me to believe in myself enough to keep writing my book and attempt to get it published. Also, don’t believe everything you hear or read about getting published. It can be difficult or it can be an amazing ride depending on your attitude. Like many things in life we often hear the most from the complainers and not the success stories. Point being, learn to filter what you listen to and focus on success because the people complaining about how difficult it is to get published won’t usually have much to offer you.
