Pack Life By: Leanne Krieger


Pack Life

Leanne Krieger



The cover of this is so pretty. I just love the fact that it looks artistic, it’s something I like to draw attention sometimes, because I feel covers deserve recognition, just as much as much as the books do.

Then I started reading and met Riley, and I felt like I have met her before. Honestly, she seems like a friend I know, and I bet a lot of us have a friend who has had troubled relationships, who honestly felt that they needed to move on, and make a new start. Maybe its even ‘you’ reading this now?

Well, Riley has been through a lot, because on top of all that, she also lost her Mom. Now as she leaves behind Oklahoma to start a new job in Texas as a chef. In her rearview mirror she leaves behind the ex-boyfriend hoping he will not find her, and that she can make a new life for herself.

Her goals include not meeting a new guy, and not falling for him, again. This time, Riley wants to take it easy and laid back, and just live for herself. But life seems to have other plans for her.

At Riley’s new place of employment, there is this one boss, Cole. She just doesn’t understand it, all of the bosses are wonderful, and friendly, and they make her feel so at home. This is not something she is accustomed to, the only person who ever was ever kind to her, was her own Mother. And this Cole character, certainly catches Riley’s eye.

Uncertain of her own feelings, and thoughts, Riley isn’t sure what to do. She feels comforted, and she feels uncertain, both at the same time. What should she do, or should she just stop playing it cautious and dance in the wind?

This is what you need to find out. You need to discover the truth about Riley and read more! You won’t be disappointed, I promise you. This is an insightful read worthy of five beautiful stars! I think this book would make for a great romantic movie to share with a loved one next to the fireplace sipping wine!

Here are my questions for Leanne:

1. What made you write this book & how long did it take you?

Pack life was the 1 was wondering what it would be like to just leave and start over, of course in my 20's with a love for cooking would it be that easy to just start over? 
:


2. Who designed the cover?

 I did I layered from random photos I had on photoshop. 



3. Do you have photos or descriptions of the characters?

I make up my characters in my head as I go, as they are needed by the main characters. All my characters in my books resemble in some way people I know, or people I wish I knew.


4. What do you think about people who leave one star reviews? Do you think they even understood what it was they read? Or even tried to?

At first 1 star honestly hurt, I try and tell a story someone can enjoy and understand and feel the characters. I also have to understand not everyone is in  my head and may not get the message I am trying to get across. Not all of my books will be favorite to everyone, I don't write to please everyone but if one person gets it that makes me happy and accomplished.  



5. What is it that motivates you to write? And what led you to become a writer?

What motivates me to write is that I have so much to say, and for the same reason I became a writer. I write what I want to read and what I think people was to escape to. 




6. What writer(s) do you hope to meet in the near future?

Stephen King would be my number one 




7. What are your hobbies?

Reading, writing, cooking, and crafting 




8. What is your favorite book of all time?

I do have a few but one that sticks out for me is "Are you there god it me Margaret." By Judy Blume it was one of the first books I read that was given to me by a friend, telling me I have to read this book, it was probably inappropriate at the time but it was a memory of one of the first books.  




9. Of your own books, which do you like best and why?

I love them all for different reasons, because I was at a different point in my writing life, with all of them, but it has to be Madison, my first book.




10. Do you have a certain rituals while writing?

I do have certain rituals, one is I wear headphones and listen to music, mostly gangster rap, lol. 




11. Where is your favorite place to write?

My favorite place is in m bedroom




12. What All education have you had?

Associates degree in business and literature, besides taking courses wherever I could to learn more about proper writing. Maybe should have listened more. lol




13. Please provide for us your social media and book links:

14. Anything to add:

I write because I love the written word, I love that a sentence can change someones life for the better. A paragraph if written correctly, can change someones mood and bring them to a place they may never knew existed. I read for those same reasons, I hope curiosity continues and writers get to tell their stories to readers who will listen.

Collision Book 3 in Hwy 17 Series By: Leaona Luxx



Collision

(Book 3 in the Highway 17 Series)
Leaona Luxx

When I seen this writers name, yes, the writers name, I was drawn to her name itself. Then I looked at her work. Then I was hooked. I had to know more. Stop judging me, I know I am weird, but hey, everyone has a little weirdness in them somewhere, or you just don’t know the real person yet. ::Truth!::
So here I am trying to stop staring at the cover of this book on my kindle. Yes, I admire that part first, and why shouldn’t I? Someone put a lot of time and effort into designing it! Give that person some kudos people! Knucks are all around!
As you can well enough notice, this book three. And apparently Walker has been in all the other books, and he is once again returning in this book as well. So as the cover states: “Buckle up this is gonna hurt.” But you’re wondering why?
Sometimes people try to avoid love, and think it isn’t the right time or place, or maybe even they aren’t ready for it. In this case, the title “Collision” means to collide. And Honestly, Walker had no intention of allowing anyone to ‘collide’ into him, and cause himself to ‘fall’ into love. He didn’t want nor to need it. It wasn’t part of his plans. 

In Reese’s stead, she causes Walker to allow his own walls to come crashing in, causing him to actually have a need for her. And the thing is, Reese does love him, and she loves him like no other. And part of him is afraid of getting hurt, and another part of him is afraid of something else, but what is it?
And the thing is, now Walker knows, that he just can’t walk away, that he in fact, does need and want Reese. But on the same token, he is afraid of the outcome.
This is where the case in question comes into play. Walker is truly afraid of getting hurt, of what though? What is he afraid of? Love? The past? What am I not telling you here? 
This is where you need to get your own copy of the book and find out for yourself, because you will not be disappointed, I promise you that! This is a delicious heart throbbing read, worthy of five delicious stars! So, go and get your copy, so you can find out what is gonna hurt! Hurry! Before it’s too late!
Here are my questions for Miss Luxx:
1. What made you write this book and how long did it take you?
Collision is about Walker Pennington. He's kinda a bad guy in Still Creek and a great big brother in U-Turn. My readers hated him in the first but begged for him after U-Turn. Well, it took me several months, unlike the rest of my books. I've had a lot of personal issues, including a huge health crisis. 


2. Who designed this beautiful cover?
AWT Cover Designs and Emma Ryder

3. Do you have any photos or descriptions of the characters that you can share with us?
I used Chris Hemsworth as my muse for Walker and Meghan Trainor as Reese. Walker is tall, blond and muscle bond. Reese is a red-head, curvy and badass.


4. What are you working on now?
Several books including a novella for Sallie Pennington.


5. What motivates you to write?
Family!!


6. What do you think of those leaving one star reviews?
Everyone has an opinion, I just hope that people base it on their own thoughts.


7. What suggestions can you offer for the aspiring writers out there?
Find an editor that's trustworthy!! Ask for sample work!!


8. How long have you been writing?
All my life but just published eighteen months ago!!


9. What are your hobbies?
Gardening, FOOTBALL!! NASCAR and I love to surf fish.


10. Do you put yourself into your characters?
Every one I write has me or my husband in them.
