Playing the Game, Derek Backhard by Shawnte Borris

Release Date: March 30, 2016

Genre: Romance, Sports Romance

Tour Dates: April 29, 2016

Playing the Game

Since being drafted by the NHL to play for his home team at age nineteen, Derek Backhard has had everything he's ever dreamed of - unrivaled MVP mentions, countless goals and assists, even being compared to the great one. Holding the power to control his future in the palm of his hands, nothing stood in his way.
Until the unthinkable happened, and everything about his life shifted. Past priorities fell away the moment he held baby Ryder in his arms mere moments after losing his close friend, and Ryder's father, Brad.
After weeks of watching Liz fall apart over the loss of her husband as she struggled to adjust to life as a single parent, Derek vows to give her and Ryder everything they deserve, creating a life he never knew he always wanted.
Rocked to her core by her changing feelings for him, Liz doesn’t know what to do with Derek or his offer. Uncertainty swirls within her as she leans on her lifelong friend during the hard times, but how much of his attention is real, and how much is pity?
Is she strong enough to let him in and let him take care of her, or will she force him away and back into the life she thinks he really wants?

Interview:

Special Edition

Can you tell us a little about Playing the Game?
PTG wasn’t supposed to happen at first. *spoiler* I had no plan to write a series until Brad died in book one and as I grieved him, yes I grieved him too as it was also a shock to me that he died. Brad kept talking and talking that he wanted his scene to be written, he wanted his own book but I had to figure out a way to make that happen. Yes the book is about Derek but that is why Brad shadows the book so much.
Playing the Game is actually the second book in The Game series, do readers need to read the first book in order to completely understand and enjoy Playing the Game?
Absolutely you need to read book one. You need to get to know each character first and why they say and do the stuff that they do. Yes in book two they’ve grown, but I still feel it’s very important that you understand the development and bond they all have together.
What can you tell us about the first book, The Game?
The Game was written all in fun. Kirsten is my other half really, I’m very straight-shooting and I don’t give anything away when I make a business deal. I am often told I am a very hard person to read which sometimes comes off that I am a b*tch, just like Kirsten. If I changed professions and went into business, Kirsten is exactly how I want to be. I also have a strong bond with my high school friend twenty years later so it was important to me that Kirsten had that too.
What was the inspiration for Playing the Game?
Easy, I wrote a book about my ultra-ego. LOL
What about hockey and the NFL draws you in?
I’m not sure what draws me to hockey, besides that I’m Canadian and it’s a passion we share. When I watch the games at home, I’m loud. I talked to the players, give the coach my coaching opinions and I yell when stupid moves are made. Yet, when I go to a live game I sit and front of my seat never taking my eyes off the ice and I’m as quiet as a mouse. I really am the most boring person to take to a game. As for the NFL, I don’t watch and when I do, I’m lost because it different rules then the CFL.
Do you have a favorite hockey player or team?
My favorite team is the Oilers, there are my home team (you don’t cheer for another team other than your home team, that is just wrong) and don’t make fun of my team either because what you are going to poke fun at me with, I make the same statements. LOL! I don’t have a favorite player because it’s a team effort, not one play is better than another.
While writing Playing the Game plot and outline? If so did you follow it, or did it go off track and turn out differently than excepted?
I write an outline plot for every book and character, however when I start writing and developing each character they start to take over. I have yet to actually write a book that looks anything like my plot and outline. My books always turn out different when what’s in my head when I start to write.
How much control do your characters have over the outcome of the book? Did they throw any curve balls balls at you in Playing the Game?
Yes, the characters have a lot of control over my work, apparently. I find they all become bossy. Definitely curve balls are thrown in, such as Brad- he was not to die and Derek was to finish out his playing career due to an injury, not by choice.
Describe Derek in five words.
Dominate, Fierce, Loving, Caretaker and HOT
Describe Liz in five words.
Soft, Outgoing, Quiet, Nurturing and Passionate
What was going through Derek’s mind when he first held Liz’s son, Ryder?
I think tons of emotions were running through his head at one time. It’s hard to pin point which one to really focus on, a lot was happening at his point in time of the book.
Do you have a favorite scene/moment in Playing the Game?
Chapter twelve is one of my favorites because it’s real life. My favorite line is “Press Cougar Claudia.” LOL it still makes me laugh.
Do you identify with any of the characters in Playing the Game?
I have Kirsten work ethic but I also am entune to Liz’s nurturing.
Do you plan to write more about any of the characters in Playing the Game? Maybe one of Derek’s team members?
Adam and Caroline’s story is next followed by Logan and Steve’s. So far I have no plan to write another hockey book but if I was, I think Jonesy would get a book.
Do you aim for a certain number of pages or words each day?
No, I’m an erratic writer. With so much going on, on the farm at different times of the year it’s hard to sit and write some days. One day I will write eight pages, the next three days nothing then fifteen pages. My goal is to get two books out a year… maybe three.
When did you know you wanted to be an author?
I didn’t know I wanted to become an author, it wasn’t my intent at all. I have my schooling to teach special needs children and when I stopped teaching to have my family, writing found me when my youngest started kindergarten full time.
You have a number of books released, do you have a favorite?
Currently I have six books published with hopefully two more on the way this year and two more covers complete after that… with another one being developed in August.
When you’re not writing, what can you be found doing?
Reading, traveling, farming, 4H and of course chilling with my family and friends.
What are you writing now? Anything you can tell us about it?
When I come back from A Weekend With The Authors, in Nashville in May I am going to be starting an MC (motorcycle series) Waking Up In Leather. It’s not going to be your traditional MC book, it will focus more on romance but of course there will be crude things involved.
What is something that you find particularly challenging about writing or being an author in general?
The most challenging for me is to stick to deadlines, I absolutely SUCK at them. The other is reaching out to my readers, I wish there was additional ways to meet more of them, find out their story. I love book signings for this reason I don’t necessarily sell myself, I’d much rather meet the readers.
What advice would you give to writers just starting out?
Write for you and no one else! You will not please everyone and nor should you. Write because it’s a passion for you, not for another way to make an income- because it’s that’s the case you will be eating mac and cheese forever.
Do you have any writing rituals? Anything you must have while writing? Coffee? Candy? etc.
Candy, I eat so much candy it’s sickening really and when I edit I binge eat everything.
Who influenced your writing/life the most?
No one influences my writing because I write for me and what I want to read. But I will say this journey all started when I was thirty and I read my first ever book beginning to cover, then the entire series in three days. Thanks to Twilight.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers?
I truly can’t thank my readers and bloggers enough. This past year was a nightmare and each and every reader and blogger stuck by me till the bitter end and for that they will always have my gratitude.
What are the names of your published books and where can we purchase them?

Genre: Mystery/ Detective/ Fantasy
Age category: Middle Grade
Release Date: May, 2015

Blurb:
A reluctant detective, a criminal mastermind, and . . . sugar?

Amanda Lester wouldn’t be caught dead going into the family business. Her ancestor, Sherlock Holmes’s colleague Inspector G. Lestrade, is a twit. Nevertheless her parents refuse to see his flaws, and she’s going to a secret English school for the descendants of famous detectives whether she likes it or not.

When Amanda arrives at the dreaded school, she considers running away—until she and her new friends discover blood and weird pink substances in odd places. At first they’re not sure whether these seeming clues mean anything, but when Amanda’s father disappears and the cook is found dead with her head in a bag of sugar, they’re certain that crimes are taking place.

Now Amanda must embrace her destiny and uncover the truth. The only snag is that arch-villain Blixus Moriarty, a descendant of Holmes’s nemesis Professor James Moriarty, might be involved, and he doesn’t like nosy little girls interfering in his business.

Paula BerinsteintAbout the Author:
Paula Berinstein is nothing like Amanda. For one thing, she’s crazy about Sherlock Holmes. For another, she’s never wanted to be a filmmaker. In addition, compared to Amanda she’s a big chicken! And she wouldn’t mind going to a secret school at all. In fact, she’s hoping that some day she’ll get to build one.




Interview:


Where are you from?
I was born in Hollywood and raised in West Los Angeles, California.
Tell us your latest news?
The fourth title in the Amanda Lester, Detective series, Amanda Lester and the Blue Peacocks’ Secret, is now out. I aimed this book toward a little older audience than the first three. I am calling it a YA title, although I think younger kids would enjoy it as well. It’s just that there’s a bit more romance in this one.
When and why did you begin writing?
I dabbled over the years, mostly writing kids’ stories, but I got serious in the 1990s when I was doing research for screenwriters, novelists, and producers. I enjoyed my work (I used to be a reference librarian and had gone freelance) but I envied them. They got to be creative, which was what I’d always wanted to do. So I vowed to start writing professionally.
At first I wrote articles and books about librarianship and finding information because I knew the subjects and it was easy to break in. Then I started to branch out into writing about science and technology (which almost led to a job with astronaut Buzz Aldrin), and then in 2005 I started my podcast, The Writing Show. I did that till 2012. As soon as the show was over I started writing fiction, and that was because a friend of mine kept nudging me to develop some ideas I’d come up with while doing the show. Those ideas, of course, had to do with Amanda Lester.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Is this a trick question? Wow, I’m not sure. I’ve written for a long time, but I didn’t only write for most of the time I was doing it. I suppose I could go back and look at my tax returns and see when I started listing my occupation as “writer,” but instead I’ll just pick the late 1990s, when I started getting writing gigs that paid. That included writing Web site copy, documentation, articles, columns, and other stuff, as well as books, although I’d had contracts with publishers since the mid-nineties.
What inspired you to write your first book?
Do you mean my first Amanda book? I’d rather talk about that than Communicating with Library Users, which was my first actual book (and fun, but of less interest to your readers, I think).
I wanted to write a detective story because I love mysteries, and I wanted a protagonist who was compelling but flawed. I wasn’t actually sure I could do this, though, and I was worried. So I guess you could say I was inspired by the challenge and the doubt.
Do you have a specific writing style?
If you showed me a passage from just about anything I’ve written, I’d recognize it as mine. Describing that style is tricky, though. I think I’d have to say that it’s colorful, but not in the way you might think. I have a bit of synesthesia, which means I sometimes experience one sense as another, such as seeing words in color, visualizing sounds as shapes, and so on. When I see my words on the page, I feel as if I’m experiencing color. I don’t exactly see them in pinks and purples and greens, but they affect me in a way that’s similar to that. Maybe that’s why I have colors in the titles of all my Amanda books. I suppose this makes no sense . . .
How did you come up with the title?
I have a very specific formula for my titles.
First, I use Amanda’s name because her last name is a variant of Lestrade and implies a connection with Sherlock Holmes.
Next I pick the MacGuffin (https://t.co/OpwRcWw1z2), which is the thing that’s being pursued in the story, such as sugar or rainbows or peacocks. When I’m searching for a MacGuffin to use, I look for something catchy that can carry an entire plot. A lot of my ideas can’t, so they end up on the cutting room floor.  
Then I come up with a color for the MacGuffin, such as pink or orange or blue. It has to be something vibrant and visual, because I want my stories to be very sensory and cinematic.
And then I look for a word that connotes conflict or struggle or antagonism, such as conspiracy or secret. I do that to give the title a bit of darkness and mystery and to suggest the presence of villains.
And that’s how I do it!
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
I want them to have fun. Is that a message?
How much of the book is realistic?
I think the characters behave in realistic ways, but the world I’ve built for them is not terribly realistic. Everything I write about is based in fact but is exaggerated, sometimes to extremes, including the technology, although some of the far-out sounding devices in my stories actually exist. For example, there really is such a thing as a powerful microscope built out of a cell phone, and there are acoustic levitators such as the one Amanda’s friend Clive Ng invents. Whether you could use them in the ways I do is doubtful, however.
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Not really. Only one character, Simon Binkle, resembles someone I know, and even then only slightly. The events in the stories are completely imaginary, although I did belong to a stick dog club with friends named Jill and Laurie when I was about seven.
What books have influenced your life most?
The Sherlock Holmes stories, Nancy Drew, and Trixie Belden. I’ll tell you why. I love to figure things out, and I must have started doing that because I read mysteries. Or maybe I was born that way, I don’t know. But I think mysteries have taught me how to approach life, to question and reason.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
I’m afraid I’m going to have to give you three: Charles Dickens, Elizabeth George, and J.K. Rowling.
Dickens taught me how to tell a story. He does overuse coincidence, but his books are stylized rather than realistic, so I forgive him.    
Elizabeth George, the author of the Inspector Lynley mysteries, writes such compelling characters. I absolutely love her detective sergeant, Barbara Havers. She’s so smart and capable and yet so flawed and I become so engaged with her. I’ve also learned about description from reading Ms. George. She doesn’t just recite what her characters see; she imbues her scenes and props with histories, context, even personality.
As for Rowling, her world-building is second to none. The Harry Potter books just sparkle on the page. She’s a first-rate storyteller too.
What book are you reading now?
A Game of Thrones, by George R. R. Martin.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
I must say that Tana French is an amazing mystery writer. Her stuff is rather gritty so I wouldn’t recommend it for kids, but In the Woods and The Likeness are riveting. Very creepy too.
Philip Pullman, the author of the His Dark Materials series, is another author I can’t get enough of. His fantasy stories take place in an alternate England where people are literally connected to their spirits, which he calls daemons. Wonderful writer for kids and adults both.
What are your current projects?
I have almost finished the first draft of the fifth Amanda Lester, Detective book, Amanda Lester and the Red Spider Rumpus. In this title a new villain emerges who attempts to use Amanda’s passion for filmmaking against her. We also learn a secret about Simon as well as something we didn’t know about Scapulus Holmes, Sherlock’s great-great-grandson.
What would you like my readers to know?
Here is a writing secret from J.K. Rowling. She draws a matrix of her stories with the timeline down the side and various plot elements along the top. I do something similar, although I put story beats down the side. You can see your story at a glance! A very helpful way to get an overview, and you can adjust the events easily.
I would also like your readers to know that you are awesome! Thank you so much for hosting my blog tour, Vicky!!!!!

Excerpt Three:

Vanessa is sitting in a restaurant with Melanie, a woman in her early twenties with curly, dark hair.

“So anyway,” Melanie says. She is wearing chic business attire and diamond-studded hoop earrings. “He stopped by my cubicle this morning and asked me if I wanted to go with him to a party on Thursday. I told him, calmly, that I have to check my schedule.”

“Oh yeah,” Vanessa says. “That was a good response.”

“So what’s going on in married land?”

“Nothing much.”

“Are you sure? You’re kind of quiet,” Melanie says.

“Well, something strange happened last night,” Vanessa says.

“Like what?”

“When I was putting away the clothes, I saw a note on Peter's tablet. There was a woman's name and phone number on it. And today's date was in tiny print in the corner.”

“Did you ask him about it?” Melanie asks.

“No, I mean, I figured it could belong to a classmate or something.”

“Girl, you should’ve asked about it,” Melanie says.

“Then I woke up in the middle of the night and he was gone. And so was his cell phone.”

“And you didn't ask him about that either?”

Vanessa clasps her wedding rings. “Well, we're married, and I trust him.”

“Who are you trying to convince? Me or yourself? I think...”
