[Book Tour] Hindsight by Sarah Belle #giveaway

By: Sarah Belle

Humour, wit, and just a touch of humility: the swinging 60s as you’ve never seen them before!

The universe has sent Juliette a sign. She wishes it had been an email instead...

Juliette’s career is on fire, her marriage and family are in melt-down, and a red-hot goddess wants her husband. But those are the least of her worries when she wakes up on her lounge room floor in the year 1961.

Without any of her modern conveniences — nanny, housekeeper, surgically attached mobile phone, designer wardrobe, and intravenous lattes — Juliette is just over fifty years out of her comfort zone. But as she takes on the role of a 1961 housewife, with gritted liberated teeth, she discovers an unexpected truth: slower doesn’t mean boring, at home doesn’t mean dull, and priorities don’t mean sacrifices.

As she finds unexpected friendships, a resuscitated love life, tragedy and triumph, Juliette begins to wonder if she really wants to return home after all.

What was the first romance novel you read that made an impression on you?
Jenny Colgan’s ‘Do you remember the first time’, was my first romantic comedy read. I loved the mixture of humor, characters and the protagonist’s journey throughout the book. It got me hooked on the genre.

Tell us 5 surprising things about yourself.
I have spent my life surrounded by males - I grew up with three older brothers and now have four sons, so it surprises me that I write romantic comedy!

I have to do Bikram Yoga at least three times a week to maintain my sanity levels.

I once did a four week Pole Dancing course. I was the worst dancer in the room and was covered in bruises and carpet burn by the end of it.

I am woeful at covering my son’s school books with contact paper- air bubbles and corrugations appear from nowhere. It looks so bad that my sons have asked me to stop covering their books.

I grew up in a bakery but cannot bake a cake – even a packet mix is beyond me.

What is your writing environment.
My workspace is on the dining table in the middle of the busiest room in the house!

Do you plan all your characters out before you start a story or do they develop as you write?
I plan my main characters out because I need them to suit the scenario I have come up with, but all secondary characters just evolve as I write.

What’s the last movie you watched and loved?

‘Oz the Great and Powerful’. It made me feel like a kid again- completely lost in that world and in awe of the effects. Also, James Franco is a bit gorgeous!

Flirting Questions
Which actor or book character do you have a crush on?
Daniel Craig – it doesn’t matter which character he plays, he’s hot!
What’s your favorite body part of the opposite sex?
Broad, muscular shoulders.
What does love feel like?
It feels like home.
What’s an absolute no-no in a relationship?
If you could take a romantic trip, where would it be?
Somewhere warm and lazy – the Greek Isles perhaps.

Flirting Quickies:

Facial hair or clean shaven? – Clean shaven.

Alpha or Beta? – beta.

Coffee or tea?- Tea.

Spotlight or In the Shadows? – in the shadows.
Optimist or pessimist? – Optomist.
