Stupid Girl by Cindy Miles Blog Tour - Interview + Giveaway



Stupid Girl (Stupid in Love, #1)

Stupid Girl (Stupid In Love #1) by Cindy Miles
NA Romance
Published: 13th May 2014

Only fools fall in love…

After her senior year of high school leaves behind nothing but heartache, Olivia Beaumont is sure of this: She’s no stupid girl. She sets out for Winston College, promising herself that she will remain focused on her first and only love – astronomy. But all it takes is cocky sophomore Brax Jenkins and an accidental collision with a football, to throw her entire year off course.

A quick-tempered Southie who escaped the inner city streets of Boston to pitch for Winston, Brax is known to play way more fields than just the baseball diamond. So, when his name is drawn to take part in his fraternity’s hazing dare, Brax eagerly accepts the mission to take Olivia’s virginity. But he doesn’t plan on falling hard for the sweet and sassy Texas girl who sees right through his bad-boy persona.

As Olivia and Brax battle their feelings for each other, echoes of the past year begin to surface. A boy who once turned Olivia’s whole world upside down reappears, and “harmless” pranks wreak havoc. Pretty soon the aspiring astronomer is on the verge of revealing her most difficult, heartbreaking secret. All the while, Brax must wrestle with the irrevocable dare, and Olivia struggles against all logic as she does the one thing only a stupid girl would do: fall in love.

Interview with Cindy Miles

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Hi, and thanks for having me here! A little about myself…I’ve always loved to read, so I suppose that’s where my passion for writing began. I grew up in Savannah Georgia, on the Vernon River. Spooky Savannah, with its moss-draped oaks and haunting old cobblestones and edgy history has inspired my writing, no matter the setting.


What made you decide to write romance novels?

I guess I love to create a relationship story that everyone dreams of having—soul-mate type love, with characters the reader can connect to. A hero who’d die for his girl. :)


What is Stupid Girl about in your own words?

Stupid Girl is about two unlikely souls who stumble upon each other and see the other in ways no one else can. It’s about finding an unexpected love when you’re not looking for it; a soul-mate when you didn’t think one exists.


Do you see yourself in any of your characters?

Probably a little in all of my heroines, whether it’s a love of a certain movie, an obsession of a favorite food, or the type of clothes they wear. In Stupid Girl, the heroine, Olivia, loves old movies, E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial in particular and (like me!) has an original movie t-shirt and wears it in the book. :)


How long does it usually take you to write a novel from start to finish?

Probably a good 3 months writing full time, M-F, 8 hours per day. I love getting up super early, like 4-5 am, breaking around noon for an hour or so, and wrapping up by 3 or 4 pm.


What is something you hope readers will take away from your books?

I’d hope that the reader closed the book feeling fulfilled and feeling like the characters in the book could’ve been real people, and that the story is so powerful – it’s not quickly forgotten. :)


Do you have any parting words of wisdom?

For writers—create characters as true-to-life as possible. 3-D characters, in my opinion, make the story. :)


Thank you for that awesome interview, Cindy!

  7. I haven't heard of this book before, but I love a good romance. I think creating those beautiful types of romance stories is a good reason for wanting to write this genre. And eight hours for a three months? That's a lot of time and commitment!
