Author spotlight: Annie Seaton

26 October 2012

Annie Seaton is a romance author across three genres: contemporary, paranormal and steampunk. Annie lives in Nambucca Heads on the mid north coast of New South Wales with her ever-patient husband and two white cats and Bob the Dog who thinks he is a human.

Welcome Annie to our spotlight …

Have you attended on of ARRA events before?

I attended the ARRA book signing at the RWA conference on the Gold Coast and was most impressed by the meticulous organisation of the event. It was a wonderful experience sitting with 64 other authors and also due to alphabetical serendipity I sat next to Alexandra Sokiloff!

What are you most looking forward to at ARRC2013?

ARRC2013 will be a great chance to catch up with readers and fellow authors. Writing can be a lonely occupation and to discuss your books with readers is an amazing experience.

Tell us about your latest book…

I am currently working on seven manuscripts—yes, seven! The two books to follow up Holiday Affair (Italian Affair and Outback Affair) are in the hands of my editor, as well as a sweet romance called Worth the Wait. I am also writing a paranormal romance called Surrender by the Sea and a single title called From the Ashes.

What do you have coming up next?

I am dipping my toe in the self-publishing pond later in the year with my steampunk sequel–Summer of the Moon Flower. This story is full of my favourite things and places. Vienna and a Scottish Island… as well as a hunky Scottish laird, the secondary characters I love to put in my stories and of course all the great steampunk contraptions I love inventing. This book is also packed with many historical surprises!

Keep an eye out for Annie’s books:

    Libby… it was fabulous to have coffee with you in Macys in San Francisco..(.Ooh..I loved saying that!) It makes up for all the lonely writing times when you spend time with fellow authors!

    Sami…my mind goes at nineteen to the dozen all the time! It is much more fun than using my brain for boring submissions as I did in my career years. Now I get to have romance in my head all the time!

    Fabulous interview, ladies! Annie, too true about the lonely aspect of writing. It was so much fun chatting with you in person a few months ago. Hope we get the chance to do so again in the not so distant future!

    Seven books, my mind boggles. Don’t think I’d be able to keep track of all of them–have enough to do working on two at the moment. Looking forward to all the new releases.

    I think it’s brilliant that you write across genres and your books are awesome. Seven books ..oh my…very busy but I’m sure that you are happy in being this kind of busy.
