Interview Rhain Cahill A Harlequin Escape Author


Hey guys to day with have an interview with Rhain Cahill a brand new Author from Harlequin Escape, a new Digital first imprint from Harlequin Australia, I had a chance to ask Rhain a few questions about her self and her relationship with the new imprint that ever one is talking about, here's what she had to say. 




How are you?
I’m good thank you. Especially now we’re coming into summer. I’m not a big fan of the cold.

Tell us about yourself? 
 I’m a stay-at-home mother of four. I’ve been married to Mr.C for 25yrs and counting. J I’m multi-published in erotic romance and am thrilled to have placed my three contemporary romance novellas with Escape Publishing.

How did you get in to Writing?
I’ve always written but it wasn’t until my kids were all in school fulltime that I started to consider publishing something. In 2007 we moved to Singapore and Mr.C suggested it was a good time to get serious about it and 12mths later I was offered my first contract. I’ve since sold 16 stories to various digital first publishers.



Do you have any advice for fellow Authors?
Write. Nothing promotes a book better than a new release. Backlist is gold, the bigger the list the bigger the reader base.



Tell us about your up and coming novels?
Christmas Wishes and New Year’s Kisses are holiday novellas. Christmas Wishes is a friends to lovers story where the hero finds himself dressed in a pair of too small green tights and in New Year’s Kisses we get to see our hero’s take on what a New Year’s kiss is all about. Not to mention he has to virtually blackmail our heroine to go on a date in the first place.


Christmas Wishes (novella)Tell us about your partnership with Harlequin Escape?
As a digital first author I was very curious to see what Harlequin had planned for their digital first line. Especially seeing how they’re focusing on Aussie authors and stories. It’s great to finally have a local (Australian) publisher supporting Aussie authors. Most, me included, publish with US or UK publishers so it’s thrilling to think we don’t have to ‘leave home’ to get our stories out there. I originally submitted to Escape because of Kate Cuthbert. She convinced me I should send her my Christmas novella and then told me to write the sequel. You have to love an editor who encourages her authors to write, even if it is with threat of a whipping. J



Was it an easy decision to go with Harlequin escape?
Yes actually. When I considered time spent on writing my novellas and what Escape could give me with the backing of the publisher of romance world wide it was kind of a no brainer. Of course now that I’ve experienced the whole process with them I’ll definitely be sending more work their way.



Was it an easy process?
Yes. We were on a tight timeline to get the first novella ready to go live for the launch but I never felt rushed at any point. Sure we had to turn edits around quickly but it never felt as though we were letting anything slip by or cutting corners. As I said, I’m multi-published with multiple digital publishers and Escape is right up there with the best of them.



Who are your inspirations?
Anyone. J Wait, do you mean who inspires me as a writer or who inspires my stories? As a writer I’d have to say Nora Roberts and Jill Shalvis. They’re both prolific and good. Really good. As for my stories, well anyone and anything can be an inspiration. I’m always warning the tribe not to make me cross or I might kill them in a book.



What are you currently reading?
Just finished Jill Shalvis’s latest Lucky Harbor novella. Not sure what I’ll pick up next.



What is the best way for your readers to keep up with you?

Oh, I’m everywhere J

Who are you when you are not writing?
I’m not really anyone different. And let’s face it, I’m always thinking about writing even when I’m not at my desk. J
