Let’s learn more about Meghan. We asked her a few questions and here are her answers.
What are you looking for at this time?
We are always looking for a compelling story with a strong author voice. We are especially looking for books with series potential and a strong savvy heroines. Contemporary romance to fit within our Montana Born or Texas Born lines. We also are looking for paranormal, fantasy and historical romances.
What tips can you give writers for a successful pitch or query?
Be concise and give the juicy parts of the story. A strong beginning will always keep me interested but I want to know the meat of your idea.
What’s your weirdest pitch experience?
Weirdest. Hmm. I once received a pitch for a government conspiracy theory. It didn’t quite fit the romance criteria!
A Game of Brides by Megan Crane
When the Duke was Wicked by Lorannie Heath
All the Kings Men by Robert Penn Warren
What’s your favorite thing about attending conferences?
My favorite thing is meeting new authors. I love hearing about new stories for books, but I also love learning about authors. Each author has such an interesting and unique story that it’s always one of my favorite things at conferences.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Oh no. I would have to say The Real Housewives TV series. I always get sucked in!
What’s one of your pet peeves?
Being on a cell phone constantly especially during a one-on-one conversation. Grr.
What’s the best advice you ever received?
Always try your very best. I love this advice because it can apply to all areas of life. From school and work to relationships and interests. If you always try your best, then you are left with fewer regrets.
What is your favorite romantic movies or favorite movie ever? And why?
Love Actually – I actually love this movie! There are many unique story lines that all show the different forms of romance and love. And it’s set during the holidays… in England. What could be better?
