Author Interview: Sandra Edwards (Incredible Dreams)

Today I welcome author Sandra Edwards, author of Incredible Dreams, Crazy for You, Broken Wings, Secondary Targets and Vegas, Baby.  I am hosting her as part of her BLB tour.  So please welcome Sandra to My Reading Room today, check out her interview and be sure and note the details of the giveaway she is doing on her website at the end.

What was your first book published and how did it feel to see your book published?

My first book published is Crazy For You. It was thrilling and a little bit scary to share my baby with the world. lol.

Do you get time to read? What are your favorite types of books to read?
The time I’m able to devote to reading for pleasure is limited. I usually cuddle up with my Kindle for an hour or so a few nights a week. As you can imagine, it takes me a long time to read a book. lol. My tastes are eclectic. I enjoy most genres (although I’m not much for horror or inspirational), so long as it’s a good story.

What is your favorite room in your house?
The back porch.

What is your favorite spot to read in?
In bed, at night when the house is quiet.

What is your favorite snack food?
Jelly beans.

Do you have a schedule for writing each day or do you just do it when you can?
I have a daily schedule of sorts, in that I’m at my desk by 8:30 or 9:00 in the morning. First, I tackle promo, trying to find new and inventive ways to get my name out there. I also format for a living, so I spend a few hours a day as needed formatting customers books into epub and mobi files. I spend time looking over my critique partners WIPs, too. The late afternoons and evenings are the time that gets devoted to my own writing.

Tell us about Incredible Dreams in 140 characters or less.
A modern-day ghost whisperer travels through time to save the life of a WWII fighter pilot, and ends up jeopardizing her own existence.

Where did the idea for Incredible Dreams come from?
My fascination with ghost stories, time travel and the 1940s.

What made you delve into time travel genre?
I like to write in the genres I tend read.

What book are you working on at the moment?
I’m working on another time travel that also visits the wildly popular vampire theme.

About Incredible Dreams
Incredible Dreams is the story of a modern-day ghost whisperer who travels through time to save the life of a WWII fighter pilot and ends up jeopardizing her own existence. Izzy Miller prefers to call herself a spiritual therapist because she thinks it makes her sound more professional than plain old ghost-whisperer. She expects her latest project to be quick and easy because exorcising military personnel is pretty routine. But there's nothing easy or routine about Captain Jack Baker-he's a rather forgetful spirit and somewhat mischievous. And even though he's intrigued by the US Government's latest attempt to remove him from the only place he can ever remember being...he has no intentions of going anywhere. Plans to exorcise Jack are quickly sidelined when Izzy discovers a portal into the past inside her dreams and sets out to change his fate. Trouble is...when she gets back there, she can't remember anything but her name. She still sees ghosts, but is far less accepting of her gift. And, to make matters worse, a demonic force pretending to be the forgetful heroine's sister has her own plans-to steal Izzy's soul.
