Hallo, Hallo dear hearts!
One of the more under-read areas of Contemporary Romance & Women’s Fiction for me is the classical favourite – the Romantic Comedy and/or the RomCom. Which is a unique thing to disclose considering I am a ready fan of this particular niche in motion picture – oft times my memories of going to the theater to see the latest #mustsee film would befit this category – with several exceptions, as I never liked the RomComs which were pieces of fluff without substance, I preferred the heartier ones with descent plots, wicked good actors and a general sense of sophisticated charm.
When it comes to sourcing the kind of RomComs I want to read in Fiction, however, the search is an extensive one. I’ve found a few authors via ChocLitUK over the years who have a wicked sense of balance when it comes to the RomCom – one of the most #unputdownable reads I had from them was Sarah Tranter’s “Romancing the Soul”. However, if you’ve notice, I read that lovely within my first year of being a book blogger – ergo, it does take me a considerable amount of time to find writers who are writing romantic comedies I’d love to soak inside.
As I read the premise for “Mentoring Mr Singleman” it sparked a lot of lovely questions I wanted to start to ask the author – I was delighted when I learnt I could host an interview and showcase this debut novelist. The best part of all though is how they responded to my questions, allowed my readers and myself a bit of an inside glimpse into the storyline and gave a proper sense of the context of the novel ahead of reading! This is smashing as I wasn’t able to get a copy prior to my tour stop and I loved being ‘caught inside’ the author’s world through our conversation.
I am hoping you, dear hearts will find this interview as enjoyable to read as I had in hosting it. May it give you a tip of joy to find out more about ‘Mentoring Mr Singleman’ and what is next in store for this lovely debut author. This also marks the first blog tour I’ve hosted for Bookollective and I look forward to working with them again.
Brew yourself a cuppa and hug close to the convo!
Mentoring Mr Singleman
by Kim Sancreed
'A witty, off-beat romance set in Cornwall. New member of faculty Kate finds herself living below one of her colleagues in a converted engine house on the cliffs. Everyone can see they are made for each other, but he’s a little too in love with his surfing, and she’s a little too focused on her career. Under the merciless gaze of their students, Dave and Kate dance around each other through the highs and lows of a school term. Will they manage to get out of the way of their own happy ending?'
