I Care About You, Stranger: Guest Post by Charlotte Stein
I’m here to talk about my latest novel, WAY DOWN DEEP. More specifically, I’m here to talk about the fact that it isn’t just my novel at all. That’s right, I co-wrote it with another author: the fabulous Cara McKenna!
Now, I know what you’re thinking. I know, because before I co-wrote with Cara I used to think exactly the same thing. How do people manage to get something like that going? And the answer is: it was pretty easy really. We were mates, we had similar writing styles. We talked about doing something together. I was scared everyone would hate my style clashing with Cara’s, so totally loved the idea of writing in text messages.
Cara suggested it, and I jumped on it, and here we are. After that, it was easy. The format wasn’t limiting, because we decided to express quite a lot through each message. More like the kind letter writing we often do with our friends through texts. And we gathered readers would appreciate that, because it gives you all the character detail people are used to.
Writing with Cara was a dream and a doddle. We were of one mind a lot, and I very much enjoyed being able to defer to someone else and have that reassurance. Plus she’s funny and kind and I enjoy her company!
Couldn’t ask for more, really.
Ten out of ten, would recommend.
Anyhoo, if you want to investigate the book for yourself, here are the details:
A steamy, deeply emotional tale told entirely through text messages.
Blurb for WAY DOWN DEEP:
The words he typed were never meant to be read, yet they found their way to her. Two wounded strangers, prisoners of their own lives, brought together by a wayward text.
Without ever hearing each other’s voices, a friendship blooms between them. Without ever seeing each other’s faces, an attraction grows. Without ever touching, the two become lovers.
But when words suddenly aren’t enough, will this bond be able to tear down the walls that keep them apart…or was it only ever fantasy?
