Author Interview: Sherry Gammon (and Giveaway)

Today, I'd like to welcome Sherry Gammon, the author of Unlovable to my blog.

A bit about Sherry (as found on Goodreads): Sherry has been writing for several years. Her work has been in several newspapers, and an educational magazine. She and her husband, along with their children and a couple of crazy dogs, call Upstate New York home. 

How did you come up with the idea of Unlovable?
Unlovable was first written as a fantasy story, with shape-shifters and Changelings. Me and my awesome instincts … NOT … decided that the fantasy novel was dying off so I converted Unlovable into a contemporary novel.

Which character from Unlovable are you most like?
None really. Each main character has some of me in them. I found that if I gave the characters some of my traits, I could relate to them better and “get inside their head” easier. Poor Maggie got my hair!!!

You get to go on a date with either Seth, Cole or Booker. Who do you pick and why? 
Booker! I love tall, dark, and handsome (my Hubby is all of these) and I LOVE funny! Plus I love his protective/vulnerable side.

If there's one thing that you hope readers take away from Unlovable, what would it be? 
NEVER EVER give up. Life is hard at times, but you will never be given more than you can handle, although some days it feels like it. Just hang on, or make the changes that will make it better.

I know the next book in the series (Unbelievable) is going to involve Cole, but can you tell us a little more about what to expect from it?
Cole gets pulled into the Dreser world in a big way when Delilah, the Dreser brother’s sister, comes into town to get revenge for the family. Cole also finds love in a very unexpected woman. Booker's over-protective nature goes into overdrive…and there just may be a wedding!

A huge thank you to Sherry for taking the time to answer my questions!

  2. I didn't know this book but it seems really good, can't wait to read it! :)


  3. Oh I love tall, dark, and handsome too so I think Booker would be my choice as well. I'm sure the husband wouldn't mind one small date right? Right:) Thanks so much for the interview!

  4. Did someone say tall, dark, handsome and funny! Umm... that my dream guy right there.

    And I loved this: "make the changes that will make it better." So true. That's what I'm constantly reminding my little sisters to do when they get all mopy, but the fun part is when I have to remind myself. LOL

    Looking forward to meeting these characters.

  5. ooh I think I want to go on a date with Booker too! And I love that this book started out as a fantasy type and ended up a contemporary. I would love to read it! Great interview.

  6. can't wait to read it! :) tnx4 the giveaway

  7. What a fascinating interview. I thought it was interesting that the author first had the book written with a fantasy slant. I really want to read this book. Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance.


  8. Who DOESN'T love tall, dark, handsome, and funny? I think that's the formula for every girl's dream guy LOL! You must've hit the lottery with your husband! x) And I'm glad that you didn't force your book to be a fantasy novel when it didn't need to be. :) That makes me want to read it even more, because that means that you wrote the story the way you knew you needed to instead of following the masses! <3

    Awesome interview, Sherry!! :)
