    Romantic Fiction Author Rusty Blackwood Announces New Interview At Indie Author News

    Canadian Indie author Rusty Blackwood has announced a new interview that will appear on Indie Author News on July 23, 2014. The new interview centers on her approach to writing as an Indie Author and her latest romantic fiction novel, "Passions In Paris: Revelations Of A Lost Diary".

    "In many ways I am happy to have obtained this in-depth interview," Blackwood stated. "To be allowed consideration of one's work by such an auspicious site as this one is an important acquisition for any author, as this sought after site allows great projection, and attention to an individual's work, so in that respect I am extremely pleased to have been given this opportunity to discuss mine."

    Blackwood's romantic fiction novel is a sweeping saga written in the tradition of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' and 'What Dreams May Come'. It has been compared to Erich Segal's 'Love Story' and Nicholas Sparks' 'The Notebook'. The novel has also received extremely positive reviews from Reader's Favorite reviewers and has a 4-star rating on Amazon. The book was chosen as a finalist in Indie Author Land’s “50 Self Published Books Worth Reading”. Rusty was also a finalist in The Authors Show “50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading” Awards.

    "Passions In Paris" celebrated a one year anniversary in June, having been released on June 19, 2013. This coincided with June being Literary Month throughout the Niagara area. Blackwood read from "Passions In Paris" at the Pelham Festival Book Fair on June 21st at the Pelham Public Library, a part of the Grey Borders Niagara Literary Arts Festival. She also read three selections of poetry at Cafe on Main on June 11th in Fonthill, Ontario and an excerpt from "Passions" at William's Fresh Cafe in Niagara Falls on June 13th.

    "Passions In Paris" has received rave reviews from readers. Reader Fred Pifer stated the new romance book, "is a fascinating book of a love story that seemed to be written with me in mind. In the book 'Love Story' by Erich Segal, he told of a deep abiding love story that reminds me of Cullen and Joy’s in Ms. Blackwood’s book, but the twists of intrigue and mystery that she adds keeps the reader on edge throughout." Another said, "Passions in Paris I think stands it ground with these other powerful romantic stories like 'The Notebook' by Nicolas Sparks."

    Readers can download the epub version of the book at Smashwords. 'Passions In Paris: Revelations Of A Lost Diary' is also available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions, Barnes and Noble in paperback and Nook editions, and Create Space.
