Hi! Thanks so much for having me here today! KISS THE EARL’s release has been something I’ve been looking forward to for a very long time, and I’m so pleased to be able to share it with all of you! J
The topic for today is this. If I could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be, and why?
That’s a tricky question. Could it mean changing history in the larger sense? Or maybe just my personal timeline? Stopping myself from making a huge mistake would be great, obviously. Who hasn’t wished for that every second day for their entire lives? But then again, could I effect a change that would make the world a better place?
As far as my personal history goes, I don’t know that I’d go back to change things if I could. No, I’ve DEFINITELY done things that I regret bitterly. But, if I hadn’t gone through those experiences, would I be the person I am today? Would I have still learned those lessons, learned to appreciate the things that I do? I don’t know. I’d be afraid of screwing up worse in a different way. That’s kind of the lesson of time travel, isn’t it? Lots of times people that go back in order to change things end up messing things up much worse in a different way. So as far as my personal history goes, no, I don’t think I’d mess with it. I love my life now. I’ve got a family I adore, the best husband in the world, and I’m getting to share my stories with all of you. PLUS, we’ve got twins on the way. I don’t want to lose any of that.
But for the world, that’s a much broader and trickier question. Honestly, I don’t know. If I could prevent tragedy, sorrow, hunger, disease? Of course I’d want to do it! But how to pick just one thing?
I don’t have the answers. I wish I did! And one day, when time travel is a reality, maybe we can answer these questions. But for now? I’m happy playing pretend. J
Thanks again for having me today, and I hope that you all enjoy KISS THE EARL!
About Kiss the Earl
A modern girl’s guide to seducing Mr. Darcy
When Ella Briley asked her lucky-in-love friends to set her up for an office party, she was expecting a blind date. Instead, she’s pulled through a magic mirror and into the past…straight into the arms of her very own Mr. Darcy.
Patrick Meadowfair, earl of Fairhaven, is too noble for his own good. To save a female friend from what is sure to be a loveless marriage, he’s agreed to whisk her off to wed the man she truly wants. But all goes awry when Patrick mistakes Ella for the would-be bride and kidnaps her instead.
Centuries away from everything she knows, Ella’s finally found a man who heats her blood and leaves her breathless. Too bad he’s such a perfect gentleman. Yet the reluctant rake may just find this modern girl far too tempting for even the noblest of men to resist…
