Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I like fantasy and historical romance. However, as a youth, I fell in love with the Trixie Beldon series, which is similar to the Nancy Drew mystery series. At the time I wanted to grow up and be a detective and write mystery novels. I drove our neighbors nuts sneaking around the neighborhood looking for clues to some, yet to be discovered, mystery.
How do you approach cover design?
For my non-fiction title: Surviving Denmark on a Bag of Peach Rings, I wanted a fun cover that complimented the title as well as the beautiful Kingdom of Denmark.

For Farewell, My Denmark, I hired a professional cover artist. We went through a lot of trial and error before we found the girl on the cover. She looks similar to Catherine Erichsen, the main character, the greenery is similar to that in Denmark.

Smashwords book reviews by Tina Peterson Scott

  • A Candlelight Courting: A Short Christmas Romance on Sep. 30, 2012

    A Candelight Courting, by Joyce DiPastena was the most beautiful story I’ve read in a long time. Meg has renamed herself Christina, and plans to become a nun. She has dreamed of that moment since she can remember, but more than that, she has a secret desire that consumes her. Meg’s father, Sir Alun, is less than supportive of his daughter’s religious plans. On Christmas eve, the family and neighbors are in the great hall feasting while Christina is in her room praying. When Sir Alun hears her loud prays and knows that she is not asleep, he storms to her room. After a sound tongue-lashing, he leaves, but Christina realizes she is not alone. Sir Alun let Burthred, the man Meg was betrothed to as an infant, into the room in hopes that he will compromise her virtue and he can insist on a Christmas wedding. Burthred has his own secret. This story is about desires of the heart, feelings of unworthiness, trust and acceptance.
