If I Were Your Woman Virtual Tour with LaConnie Taylor-Jones

Having Fun with LaConnie

1. What did you want to be when you were 12 years old? 

A grown-up! And if I knew then what I know now, I'd give anything to be 12 years old, again.

2. What is your worst quality?

 I tend to be worry-wart.

3. Where do you go to get away? 

Santa Cruz, California

4. What makes you laugh? 

Hearing about the stupid things my teenagers do that they think I don't know about. What they don’t realize is that I did the exact same thing they're doing when I was their age and could give them a few tips on how to do it even better.

5. If you were given you one million dollars how would you spend it? 

Hmmm...I wouldn't spend it. I'd invest it instead.

Follow the tour all week, leaving a comment at each stop, and be entered to win a new Kindle Fire HD courtesy of LaConnie!

About the Book

Tinsel Town is about to learn a few lessons from a Southern doctor with the courage to win the heart of a man who swore no woman ever would. If it doesn’t have a scientific basis, Dr. Laney Olivia Houston doesn’t believe in it —and that includes love at first sight. But she meets Raphael Baptiste. One encounter is all it takes; and she realizes her life is changed forever. Jazz musician, Raphael Baptiste is no stranger to women or their beds. When an illness strikes, his life is thrown into turmoil. But the quiet Southern belle sees beyond his past and bitterness. She sees a man who could love. . .

I think we all have that thought when we're young that we can't wait to be a grown up and then when we become one, we wish for childhood again. Being an adult isn't always fun.

If i had a million, i would spend one fourth on house with Library. Then rest i would invest. It's great learning intersting things about you.

Have a wonderful rest of the week

LaConnie, I had to chuckle at your comments about your teenagers. I have one of those and a 12 year old who thinks she's 18 or older.

If all parents wrote a book on their teenagers, they'd all cry plagiarism because the books would be carbon copies of each other. LOL!

Continued good luck on your tour.

LaConnie, if you find a way to be 12 again, share! If only we knew then what we know now. LOL.

I just told my 16 year old niece the same thing. She has not created anything new!

Loving the tour!

Oops! I'm late. Just got in. Chuckling over folk wanting to be grown. I tell them all that beging grown ain't all it's cracked up to be--and it lasts a LONG time=:)

Keep writing great books, LaConnie!
