Author: Leta Blake
Series: Wake Up Married #7
Release Date: 12/4/2017
Genius brain surgeon Patrick McCloud never thought he’d fall in love, let alone get married. He and Will Patterson are two years overdue for their honeymoon, and although romance doesn’t come naturally to Patrick, he’s determined to make it perfect.
Will works himself to the bone helping others and dealing with his family, who bring the drama nonstop. A tropical getaway without the usual shenanigans is just what the doctor ordered. But can Will’s family leave them in peace? Knowing the Patterson-Molinaro clan, it’s not likely…
Will and Patrick’s Endless Honeymoon by Leta Blake continues the soapy, sexy fun of the original six part Wake Up Married serial. In Healing, South Dakota, marriage is never boring!
Thank you so much to the Alpha Book Club for having me here today to discuss my latest release, Will & Patrick’s Endless Honeymoon!
The original Wake Up Married series was co-written with Alice Griffiths. Where did Alice scarper off to with regard to this episode?
Alice is a wonderful and passionate museum curator in Australia and her day job is really her love. When we were finished with the original six episodes, we discussed the future, and an agreement was struck that any future books, etc, would be mine, and that the franchise, in general, belongs now to me. So while I’m sure Alice would no doubt have enjoyed working on Endless Honeymoon, she has been busy working on some really cool art related things instead, including penning a book about a famous Aussie artist that sells in museums around the world.
The serial ended on a wonderful note, so why write Endless Honeymoon?
Last summer, after a tough year for so many of us, I wanted to write a fluffy, sappy, fun thing that would make people laugh and feel good. I also wanted to write a temporarily exclusive reward story for the amazing patrons on my Patreon account. When considering my options, continuing Will & Patrick’s story into the future seemed like a good fit. I always laugh and have fun when writing Patrick!
What is your favorite thing about writing Patrick?
There’s a certain joy in writing a character that has zero qualms about just saying whatever he’s really thinking. Especially when he’s a good guy, so even his most offensive thoughts are usually well intentioned. Sometimes when writing him, I’ll go through the first draft of dialogue and ask myself, “How can I make Patrick just a little more rude?” That’s always a blast.
Will this be the last episode of Will & Patrick’s story?
I hope not! I’d like to do another summer-long treat for my patrons by exploring the future that’s hinted at in Endless Honeymoon. But we’ll see! Life has been so wobbly and crazy with job changes, etc, that I don’t want to promise anything in advance. But it’s on my schedule and I’m hoping it will be doable! It will, again, be temporarily exclusive to Patreon, but will eventually be released to the wild, too.
Thank you again to Alpha Book Club for having me. I’d like to thank all Will & Patrick fans for reading and I hope you all enjoy this Will & Patrick’s Endless Honeymoon half as much as I enjoyed writing it!
