Inside the Mind of the #Author Karolyn James @KarolynWrites #Romance #AmReading

An author’s mind is a very busy place. I can’t speak for every author out there, but I know my mind never stops working. So many times I’ve been sitting, watching a television show with friends and they’ll look at me and just know my mind is working on something. As an author, an idea can spark from a random thought or something we see. Our eyes and ears never stop working, obviously transferring so much information to our minds.
I’ve blogged many times on the origin of Brothers of Rock. I was doing dishes one night. For some reason (I don’t know why) I started thinking about music and musicians and rockstars. I wondered what it would be like to write a series following a band, capturing their life off stage. The next thing I knew I was spending weeks writing outlines, character ideas, and just like that, Brothers of Rock became a reality.
I take daily walks and it’s on those walks where I look around for ideas and inspiration. My mind tries to challenge me… who lives in that house? What’s the history of that tire swing? Other times, I use my walks to plot myself out of a jam. As a funny story, I recently had to a get CT Scan done. The nurse told me to close my eyes and relax. You know what I did? I thought about Brothers of Rock and the next book!
An author’s mind is a working machine that can’t stop working. That’s why I always give advice to other authors to make sure they have some kind of notebook with them for when those ideas strike. There’s nothing worse of a feeling than losing a great idea.

From Karolyn James, the NY Times / USA Today Bestselling author of the Brothers of Rock series...
A small town built on family, hope, and a chance to find true love.
Coming to Ferry Creek was supposed to be a short trip to settle a past, not begin a future.
The day billionaire businessman Sullivan Chasen receives a phone call that his father is dying is the day his world became turned upside down. The problem is that his father has been dead for ten years. The bigger problem is that the person who called keeps calling, insisting that Sullivan's father is going to die soon.
A shocking DNA test suddenly has Sullivan questioning everything he has ever known and has him packing up and driving to the small town of Ferry Creek, North Carolina.
There, he confronts a past he never knew existed, including a half-brother who is living in a small apartment above the family diner, a local staple in Ferry Creek.
What begins as a short trip to settle any necessary needs soon turns into a new life for Sullivan. The longer he stays in Ferry Creek, the more he falls in love with the small town... and a waitress named Jess who works at the diner.
