Book Blurb/Synopsis –
This was supposed to be an easy case…
Sémya Slotin had spent the last three years living in London with her best friend Polliannah Koch staying away from solving cases. After Hawaii, she was taking a break from puzzles, cases and mysteries that could potentially get her killed. Instead, she had been doing her second and third favorite things, drinking and selling expensive vintage wines and having earthshattering sex with the mysterious, sexy, beautiful but ever so secretive Josh Heinz. Life in London was good….until her funds ran out. Too much wine drinking, not enough wine selling!
When fashion designer and adoptive mother, Annika Slotin, summoned her back to Paris to hire her for what Sémya considered being the easiest case of her amateur sleuth career, all she could think of and seeing was money signs and a well-deserved Cuban holiday once it was solved.
What Sémya didn’t see was her stumbling on the fresh corpse of supermodel Johanna Cartier. She didn’t think that male model turned fashion designer Julian Marais-Caldwin, who also happened to be Sémya’s ex, would be suspected of brutally murdering her. Johanna was his girlfriend, his muse and he loved her. Sémya didn’t see the dead bodies piling up or the conspiracy theories.
Sémya was a little rusty. But then again, it was supposed to be an easy case and she was going to solve it. One vintage wine at a time… Sémya Slotin was officially back in business!
How do you react when you get a bad review?
For me a bad review is a disrespectful one or/and a hurtful one done by a reviewer who didn’t like your book because it wasn’t his/her genre. I’m getting better at handling it. Why are you asking? LOL
How do you choose your character names?
I don’t think about them as much as should sometimes (the first names). In Sémya Slotin Mystery, I’ve noticed (too late) that all the male characters’ names start with a J. But I usually research the last names to make sure they are authentic.
What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer?
It’s too late for me! But if you know please tell others now lol
Do you have any superstitions when you are writing a novel?
Not yet, but give me to me J
