I’m delighted to have Jan Graham on my blog today to talk about her new release, One Night in Sydney.
Jan: I’m so excited about the release of One Night in Sydney. When I looked at the City Night’s series by Tirgearr Publishing and noticed the absence of Australian destinations from its titles, well, I knew I had to do something to rectify the situation.
I chose Sydney as my city to write about because I’m so familiar with it. I’ve always lived within driving distance of it, which means, heading into the hustle and bustle for theatre events or concerts is an easy thing to do. Sydney is not only a great source of live shows it also has amazing shopping areas, spectacular parks, museums, galleries, and the harbor precinct with the famous Opera House and Harbor bridge.
I had a great time writing this book. As an author, writing about something close to home is always easy, well it is for me at least. Sydney has always been the place to go to for fun and adventure, particularly during my younger years. Of course I’m not going to tell you about the many wild weekends I’ve spent there because, just like Vegas, what happens in Sydney stays in Sydney.
While writing the story I visited Sydney to investigate the Friday Foodies Market in the rocks where Abby and Kane reconnect after their initial meeting. I researched hotels where they could stay and the Vivid festival that Abby and Kane attend. Vivid is my favorite event on the Sydney calendar each year. The harbor is transformed into a mural of spectacular color for two weeks. If you ever get a chance to visit Vivid you won’t be disappointed.
Writing about the landscape, sites and attractions featured in the story meant the reactions of the characters to their surroundings took on a different aspect for me. It became personal. As did the spontaneous magnetism Abby and Kane felt for each other, it all stemmed from a familiarity I remember well. Yes, I admit it, I have experienced a similar attraction to a complete stranger or two while visiting Sydney and acted on it. I also need to confess that instant, lustful desire, hasn’t happened for a while now, in any town or city around the world (insert sad single face here…lol). Great, now I’m having visions of Bridget jones drunk on the floor being eaten by dogs.
Sorry, I digress, back to the book.
I’m not sure if the familiarity I’ve mentioned will give the book a greater authenticity or not, that’s something only the reader can decide. If nothing else, even though researching all these things is part of my work as a writer, it’s also fun and I hope the pleasure I experienced while visiting Sydney is reflected in my work for my readers to enjoy. All in all, Sydney is a spectacular place to visit, a great place to write about and, in One Night in Sydney, it’s the perfect place to fall for the man of your dreams.
Will passion win out over wise business sense in one of the most beautiful harbor side cities of the world?
They say you often meet the person of your dreams in the most unlikely places and when you least expect it. Abby Devon and Kane Matheson are about to put that theory to the test.
Abigail Devon is all about business, until the dream of keeping her company alive fails and she finds herself seeking distraction in the arms of a tempting stranger she met on the plane. Kane Matheson is a man like no other, and once Abby gives into her attraction to him, passions spark and a night of erotic pleasure begins.
Kane can’t believe his luck when his flight to Sydney places Abby along his path to a fun filled weekend. She’s his kind of woman—business minded, clever, and with curves in all the right places. When he discovers they have more in common than savvy business expertise and undeniable sexual heat, he’s faced with a daunting choice, and left wondering if pleasure can win out over wise business sense in one of the most beautiful harbor side cities of the world.
