Blog Tour: Warm Springs Trilogy By Christina Kirby @CKirbyWriter @GHBTours #Giveaway

Safe at Home
Warm Springs Trilogy #1
By- Christina Kirby
Genre- Romantic Suspense

Driven by fear and desperate to protect her family, Samantha is forced to leave Chicago and everything she's worked to achieve, only to start over by tossing a dart-at-the-map. The Georgia townsfolk's true Southern charm is the unexpected prescription needed to heal her soul, and the sexy carpenter who touches her heart are distractions she didn't plan on, but they might offer her a chance at a new life, if she can let go of her past.

Town heartbreaker, Spencer Malloy, isn't looking for anything serious. His days are perfect working as a contractor, attending his nephew's baseball games or taking him fishing. He never expects to fall for the big city girl, Samantha. She's not his type, timid and closed off, but in her unguarded moments, he's intrigued by the woman he can't get out of his mind. The urge to get closer to her grows stronger each day, and when the shadow of evil resurfaces, he vows to protect Samantha, even if it means abandoning his home and joining her on the run.

When confronted by the man who's bent on revenge, Samantha must choose between running again to save the people she loves, or if she has the strength, to stay and fight for her new life.


Running Home
Warm Springs Trilogy #2
By- Christina Kirby
Genre- Romantic Suspense

Small town beauty queen, Jenny Fillmore, is a survivor. In the wake of having been kidnapped by a madman, she's managed to put her life back together, complete with a successful career and a serious boyfriend. But, when her first love returns and hires her as his real estate agent, old wounds are torn open, making Jenny question whether or not she has the life she wants. It turns out broken hearts don't heal so easily and old desires don't always fade with time.

Professional baseball player, Adam Hamilton, didn't expect a career ending shoulder injury. Thrown a curveball in his prime, he returns home to Warm Springs and the one woman whose heart he broke to pursue his sports dream. But, earning Jenny's forgiveness won't be easy. What he and Jenny once shared was real, but she's moved on. With the new man in her life, time isn't on Adam's side.


Author Interview-

What inspired you to write Running Home?

Running Home is the second book in my Warm Springs trilogy. It wasn’t part of my original plan, but after I wrote Safe at Home I fell in love with one of my supporting characters. It turns out, Jenny needed a story of her own.

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

I started writing my first book in my late twenties. I wanted to see if I could do it. It took a few years and a lot of mistakes, but I’m glad I followed my dream.

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

Late elementary school. The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Still a favorite of mine to this day.

What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

Just about everything, but my favorites are romance and YA’s.

What is your favorite book?

I can’t name just one! There are too many. I will say that some of my favorites include Rebecca, Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, The Dark Tower series, Harry Potter, The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, The Darkest Mind, Montana Sky, Sins of the Flesh, Where She Went… I could go on and on.

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

I’m most inspired by Nora Roberts. I think Stephen King is phenomenal. I love to read Cassandra Clare.

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

Wow! That’s a tough question. I would love to see Victorian England and the dresses. I would love to experience the roaring twenties, dance to fifties music, wear bell bottoms in the seventies… there is something interesting in every generation. I’d love a little taste of all of them. (Only a brief one in the time of chamber pots though.) 

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

It all depends on the story and if my muse decided to show up for work that day. Some scenes and stories flow like water while others cause me to spend a certain amount of time beating my head against the desk.

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

I have two cats who help me write, Box and Bumpus. (My husband named them.) They are thirteen and super cuddly.

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

Hi, my name is Christina and I’m a chocoholic. I’ll take any Hershey’s you want to give me.

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

Never stop learning and never stop trying. This is a hard business and it takes self motivation and a lot of work. Sit down, write the story, and follow your dream.
