Reader Nina Lillard and Author Emelle Gamble discuss the novel SECRET SISTER
 
Click to view at Amazon Books
 
Nina: What was your biggest reservation about putting your work out there, and what gave you the final push to become an Author? Did you have a full-time occupation before you published your first book?
Emelle: I had no reservations – was totally gung ho to share my stories and entertain as soon as I felt like I knew how to actually structure a story. Pretty arrogant, huh? I’ve always worked in marketing and yes, when I first started writing, I worked for AT&T.
 
Nina: Some writers do research in different ways to develop or frame up their story. Have you ever done something unusual to build a character or a plot? Like Traveling to a weird place, developing a ritual, sacrificing various writing instruments *LOL*, anything that was memorable, funny, intense, or something that became “your thing” to get you in a zone of inspiration.
 
Emelle: Very interesting question, and I am shocked to answer No. I think my characters – particularly the lead characters – come from a very personal history place, and I know them as aspects of myself, or those closest to me. This isn’t to imply my characters are me or anyone I know, but I do understand them and think I get what makes them tick. They seldom get away from me and act out – although that happens. Zoe, the hero’s sister in Secret Sister, was one of those. She had so much insight and spunk, and I had imagined her more passive.
 
Nina: Sometimes readers experience the stories you write in a completely different way than you intend. Have you ever been swayed to write additional pieces to a story to help your readers see your characters the way you see them?
 
Emelle: I have always been a huge believer in ‘the story stands alone’. I resisted, when I was an English major in college, reading criticism of works that based points of so-called insight on the author’s personal life. I realized once I began writing, that this of course was foolish of me, as all work is a chunk of the author’s soul, and reveals certain things. What has been a true revelation to me is how often my characters are viewed differently by my readers than by me. Now, a smart author would probably question their skills as writer and work on their technique (HA!), but of course, as your insightful question asks, something else is going on. I wrote a blog post once that said, ‘books belong to readers’. And that is the revelation – once a book is out there, the reader brings their own reality and life experience and personality make-up to the story, and very often sees things an author might not realize or simply sees things differently. It’s been shocking, and intoxicating at the same time. But no matter how carefully an author thinks they are crafting a character or a story, it will often, if not always, be seen to mean, or succeed or fail, for reasons that are different than what was intended, and that is completely legitimate. So no, I don’t try and convince someone of a character’s virtue. I let them meet the reader, and the rest is up to those two!
 
 
Nina: For me personally, Secret Sister was an incredibly remarkable story. I’m not sure if I would have felt as emotional had I read the book on my own, instead of experiencing it through the audiobook. I thought Stephanie Bentley was nothing less than perfect narrating it; and the combination of the story with the performance of it moved my heart in a very unexpected way. What was the process of picking the perfect narrator like?
 
Emelle: I contracted with ACX, who is the company who puts the narrator and the producers/actors together for audio books, and then sells them at Audible.com or Amazon or iTunes. You post a request for audition on their site, and prescreen actors and producers, who read and then submit short (5 to 15 minute) tapes. Stephanie was immediately empathetic as Cathy Chance, in particular. So while she wasn’t a ‘perfect’ match to how I heard the characters inside my head – I still feel she has a bit of a ‘valley girl’ tempo that I had not imagined – her depth of emotion and grasp of the drama of the story sold me immediately. In fact, listening to some of the story from her lips, I felt like I was not the author – she made me forget that I already knew what was coming next because she built the tension so beautifully.  
 
Nina: Please tell us a little bit about Secret Sister and what is was like to write this story.
 
Emelle: Secret Sister is truly the book that best expresses what I feel about true love. I am a hopeless romantic, and believe that some people are meant for each other, and are fortunate beyond blessing when they find their true love. The idea for the book came when I was sitting around with my critique group.  I threw out the notion that my true love, my husband of thirty-plus years, would know me ‘no matter what’…and hence the story was born. I found it fun beyond belief to imagine the circumstances of what happen to Cathy, and how difficult it would be to try and convince someone of your identity if you looked completely different.
 
The book deals with love on many levels, love of a parent, or a best friend, of your spouse. And it certainly is about the secrets we all keep from even those closest to us. It was emotionally taxing to write, but if I had to use one word, I would say creating Secret Sister and those characters was exhilarating. No matter what else I ever write, it will be always be my favorite creation.   
 
Nina: A Question for a character in the book…Nick’s best friend Bradley. One of the best quotes I ever heard is Bradley’s comment to Nick, “The heart remembers”. Having that in mind, do you believe you can allow yourself to love and be happy with a new person, as you once were?
 
 “Yes. I think you honor love by opening yourself to love again. You can never recreate what you had with another – especially if that other was your soulmate – but you can be happy again. I believe that, just as I believe I will never love as completely as I loved Mitch.”

HEARD any good books lately?


 
I was a slow convert to audio books – not as a listener, because I have always loved listening to a story – but as an author of ‘to be read’ stories. 
I was always nervous about the process which includes putting material up for audition, listening to the tapes the actors send – and then, gulp, choosing the ‘just right’ narrator.

Why? Not because it was a difficult a process, it isn’t. ACX, my retailer of choice, makes it ridiculously easy and economical for authors to find just the right professional voice to step up to the microphone and ‘tell’ the author’s story to an audience of readers who enjoy getting their box fix via a hands-free delivery system.

What was most daunting to me was simply letting go of my story. There is no doubt about it – giving a book to an actor to read is letting go of your work and watching – in fascination, and sometimes in shock – as another creative person interprets the mood, tone and characters in your book. 

Authors, by the end of the editing process (which in my case involves reading my book about 10 times, some sections more than that), can clearly ‘hear’ their characters voices. We know what motivates them, what they wish for, what they’re hiding and scared of. We understand clearly why they did what they did, and what part they play in the overall panorama of the plot. Our biggest challengers as authors are to do two things – make the readers clearly understand these characters by choosing the right words for the dialogue and internal thought, and convincing the reader that these made-up creatures are acting from believable and well-grounded motivation.

On my final edit, I am confident the readers will understand my characters’ actions and personality, and hopefully they will like or dislike them as I do, and enjoy the story they inhabit.

Readers, of course, bring their own experiences along with them when they read a book, and I have learned from conversations and reviews that authors aren’t always the final word. I have often been surprised by readers reactions to a story of mine, where many times they do not like or accept something about a character, that, as the writer of the story, I thought I was the final word on. HA! Frankly, I’ve loved this reckoning, for I know that books do belong to the readers. When I write it, it is my story, but when I give it to someone else, it is theirs. Each of us decide which characters are good or bad or fair, or deserving of a happy ending.  


While I have embraced this fact of life about readers, what I didn’t realize was that when I authorized an audio version of a book, I had authorized another interpretation of what was going on.  Listening to the actors voicing my words, I was surprised at how,  through intonation and tone,  their grasp of each character  was a shade or two different from mine.

My first venture into audio was with my book SECRET SISTER, a women’s fiction novel with a surprise paranormal twist that sets up the action. Thematically, this novel is about love and friendship, trust and lies, secrets and the hope we all have that we can ‘fix’ even the most complicated events so that we will be happy.

The actor who produced and narrated SECRET SISTER, brought a younger, fresher voice to Cathy Chance than I had heard in my head, and a more subdued and suffering voice to my hero, Nick Chance. In several scenes, she infused the novel with an ache and dramatic intensity I had not imagined, but which she felt by interpreting the words I had written in a darker or sadder tone.

This same thing occurred – even more startlingly for me – with Caroline Price’s performance of my new audio release of MOLLY HARPER. Both in the introductory novella, Duets, and in the full women’s fiction novel, brought a pensive, inured insight to Molly I may not have consciously intended.

Molly Harper, a beautiful, academy award winning actress, is an angsty, somewhat prickly character and I had some push back from readers and reviewers about her. Some thought she was arrogant, or cold, or unforgiving, and felt she should be softer, nicer, because of all the blessings she has in her life…not bitchy because of unresolved personal wounds.

I saw her, wrote her, as heroic and smart, navigating as best she cut through a cut-throat profession as she dealt with significant wounds to her heart and soul because of some deeply troubling family secrets and lies. But I understood how readers, coming from their own experiences, didn’t understand her as I did.

However, I was again surprised (slow learner here) to listen to Caroline’s reading of the novel, because through her, I actually heard Molly’s character differently. She did seem a little bitchy. She could be aloof. I finally understood what some readers had been angry with Molly about when Miss Price voiced my character. She spoke the same words I had written, but came away with a different take.

Note to self…embrace this fact – anyone who touches your work interprets it and understand it through their experience and point of view – hears it with their heart in a way you might not. I have always prided myself on being good at communication – that human process of stating something in such a clear way the person being communicated with fully understands what you meant. But this process has taught me once again that for all my thinking, planning, editing and polishing…readers and listeners hear things you may not realize you revealed.

The bottom line is, once an author writes ‘the end’, books then belong to readers, and listeners. They will create, with their own wonderful imaginations, the world inhabited by your characters.

Trust this, and enjoy it, for after all, there is nothing else you can do.

RWA in the Big Apple - New York City - July 22-26 Marriott Marquis


Please come join us at the "Readers for Life" Literacy Event at the Marriott Marquis. Free entrance to readers! Come meet hundreds of authors and buy some signed books. All proceeds to benefit Literacy. 

 
In honor of the ghost of RWA past, here's a blog I did about one of the more embarrassing things ever to happen to Emelle Gamble! Leave a comment below about something embarrassing that happened to you, and you could WIN a FREE signed book and $25 gift card!
 
What not to do at RWA in New York City? 

          Hint:  Do NOT spill 10 pounds of shrimp on your shoes at Nora Robert’s party.

 

 
I’m sure you are nodding as you read the above, and thinking, “Well, what kind of dolt would do that?”

This dolt.

It was a few years ago, and Ms. Roberts had graciously invited her home chapter of RWA to join her and her many other guests for cocktail hour in her suite.
It was perfect…view out the windows glorious, delicious and varied spread of cheeses and dips and seafood, waiters with drinks on gleaming trays, fabulous clothes and sparkling party jewelry. The room was packed with well-known and much loved writers, very important editors, publicists and fans and fellow WRW members like me who were thrilled to mingle and have a couple of munchies and a fortifying drink before the Awards Ceremony.
I was nervous, as always, like most of us there, hoping to make an impression on those we wanted to do business with. I had my elevator pitch ready and my new high heels on and was keeping my eyes peeled for an editor I was dying to chat up. I decided I’d grab a drink, but realized sensibly it would be much smarter to first take a lovely little cocktail plate and grab a few bites. The line was forming, shoulder to shoulder hungry writers were starting to queue up, and I somehow, with a graceful step or three, managed to plant myself right in front of an amazing display of shrimp.
 A gorgeous silver bowl of the plumpest, freshest, yummy little creatures sat on a table covered with  crushed ice, the enormous bowl tilted just so one could poke a toothpick in and spear one without any effort at all. Plate in one hand, toothpick in the other, I first spooned on a tablespoon of lovely red cocktail sauce, then speared a shrimp.
I plopped it on the plate and frowned, not sure but wondering, did the  silver bowl gently, oh so freaking gently, begin to turn on its bed of ice? I thought it might have, no more than a degree clockwise, if I remember right. The room was warm, the ice was melting just a bit, but no problem. Surely.
I speared a second shrimp. When I picked the thing up from the mountain where it perched with a thousand of it’s lovely pink  buddies, disaster.
Like card 101 in a design that could only ever balance 100, the silver bowl of shrimp moved again. Wildly. The thing took a full, dizzying ninety-degree spin, and one second later tipped forward and spilled at least half its content onto the table, onto the table cloth, onto the floor of Ms. Nora Robert’s suite.
And onto my totally shocked and humiliated feet.
It made quite a noise. A crash, actually.  Ice, silver, shrimp, glass. I don’t know what broke, but something did.
One hundred people fell silent. And then an anonymous voice from across the room asked gently, “Is everyone thinking, Thank god I didn’t do that?”
Which was hilarious at the time to everyone but the woman with seafood stuck between her toes.
In an instant a waiter in a black coat appeared at my elbow. He smiled at me and then spoke into a walkie-talkie, which appeared in his hand as if by magic.
“We have a shrimp emergency,” he said. Clicking sounds. Static sounds. Then a disembodied voice asked, “Is there sauce involved?” The waiter met my eyes. He looked relieved. “No, no sauce.”
Many more people in black coats appeared. The shrimp was cleaned up. Replacement bowls of the jumbo little devils arrived. The hostess was gracious and kind and did not have me thrown out of her penthouse window. She waved me to come over to where she stood, sympathetic and smiling, and had me sit down while people brought me drinks. 
Later that evening, after all the fun, I had an excellent discussion with the editor I was chasing, but it centered on faux pas in public, not my book. I believe she said me vs the shrimp was the worst she had ever witnessed. Ha.Ha.Ha.
Yay! I made an impression!
Okay, so lesson learned and duly passed onto fellow Conference goers.  “Step away from the shrimp”, as my dear critique partner, Elaine Fox, now whispers in my ear whenever we’re in a buffet line anywhere.

Especially if the sneaky devils are in a bowl on an ice display, intent on proving Al Gore is totally right about Global Warming.

MOLLY and CRUZ... a Love Story in three parts!




I thought I was done with movie star Molly Harper and her on-again, off-again true love, hot-tempered English professor Cruz Morales. I introduced you to them in DUETS, and let you see them struggle and come together and break apart in MOLLY HARPER. I ended that book on what I thought was a final note, but after many readers and reviewers wrote that they wished for a little bit more, I decided a sequel novella would be just the thing!

DECEMBER WEDDING is the final chapter for these two, and I hope you'll enjoy it. It's available for pre-order now, and will be released on November 22, 2014 exclusively on Amazon. 





The final act... together again and expecting a child, will the love story of Molly and Cruz end with a happily ever after, or will all the old problems of family, fame and temperament once again rule the day? Join the Harper, Sullivan, and Morales families for more than one surprise in DECEMBER WEDDING. Two reader favorites, brother Harry Sullivan, and birth mother Anne Sullivan, along with a couple of not so favorite ones (hint, hint, ex-hubby Ben Delmonico is back!) are part of the last adventure.  


 Pre-order on Amazon

DATING CARY GRANT only 99 Cents through June 26, 2014!


 

 DATING CARY GRANT...A Modern Manhattan fairy tale  starring...Tracy Connor, a New York City career woman who loves her job and classic movies.

Mike Connor, her estranged husband, a small-town Mayor who loves his wife but doesn’t seem to have enough time to see her.

The handsome stranger, Philip Adams, who lives downstairs from the small sublet Tracy has temporarily moved into. He’s charming, funny, and looks a lot like her very favorite screen icon, Cary Grant.


Now think. If you had a choice to spend your evenings the next few weeks with a charming, sexy movie star, or with your husband, whom would you choose?

Well, of course you'd choose your husband. He's your true love. The man you've promised yourself to, committed yourself to, till death do you part.  Right?

But, what if your husband is a workaholic and, despite the fact that his ambitions are to help people lead better lives, he pretty much ignores you most of the time. So what if you decided to move out on your own? Because you need a break from the discussions and disappointment and stuck in the mud, unable to move forward place you find yourselves in. Because you do, after all, want to find a permanent solution to your marital woes.

Would you like a little company? (Did I mention the sexy movie star?) Well, what if the movie star was  -- ta dah!!! --  Cary Grant!

Cary Grant???

Well, I don't mean the real Cary Grant, right? The star of Notorious, and Indiscreet, the hunk in It Takes a Thief and North by Northwest, to name a few of his seventy-two films? I can't mean Mr. uber-Handsome, Mr. Cleft in his chin, Mr. Very, very cool, classy movie star ICON, right? Because, you're certainly thinking, isn't Mr. Grant, well, dead?  

Yes, unfortunately he is.

But what if his totally perfect and sexy ghost was currently living in a high-end townhouse in New York City? And he's sweet and tan and mixes great martinis. He likes white dinner jackets and a heart-to-hearts  by the fire where he can lean close and whisper in your ear, "What else can I for you tonight?"

Yikes.

So, I ask again. If you had to pick between spending the next few weeks with the guy who might have been your biggest mistake in life, or a legend who listens when you talk, always understands what you mean (and looks like a Greek god would look if he was an Englishman), who would you choose?

Hubby? Or Cary? 


Read DATING CARY GRANT and see what Tracy does...would you do the same? 

Praise for DATING CARY GRANT...

DATING CARY GRANT  "...the author went into the mind and lives of Tracy and Mike in such a way that you could really relate to both of them. I could really understand each of them and how they had gotten to this point in their marriage. It really is a love story, not just a break up story, and It was so well written and had unique plot, that I just couldn't put this book down until I had finished it. I loved it, and I loved the way it ended and for any of you who are looking for a fun, yet serious in a way, romance, this one is for you." Long and Short Reviews

DATING CARY GRANT  "Fantasy and reality blend together in this mesmerizing tale from Emelle Gamble. I had a hard time putting it down, even as my eyes were getting dried out and closing from exhaustion...It's not your typical romance, making it a breath of fresh air in a market currently inundated with new adult contemporary romances (which I do love, but need a break once in a while!). I continue to be a fan of this author..." Andi's Book Reviews
