RELEASE BLITZ: Mistaken Identity by TC Matson

Mistaken Identity - B&N

Warning: This book includes violent sexual situations that may not be suitable for all readers. Reader discretion is advised.

Life sometimes gives you a fork in the road and doesn’t give you a hint of which direction to take. There’s no signs, no arrows, no neon lights to help. Luckily, Samantha Beckman chose the right path years ago and escaped from the horrors of her childhood. Along with her best friend, Jess, she lives a wonderful life—happy and carefree just as any twenty six year old should.

Opportunity arises when Samantha lands the job of a lifetime as the COO’s executive assistant for North Carolina’s leading corporation, Weston Company.

Yet, not everything is as it seems. Samantha soon learns Mr. Eye Candy from the elevator isn’t who he says he is, the sexy construction worker isn’t what she thought he was, and don’t forget about her new unwanted and clever stalker. Maybe her life isn’t as simple as she hoped it would be.

Caught in the sights of two men and a stalker, Samantha is forced to decide between flight and fight, fear over strength. Will she be able to take the right path again, or has her luck finally run out?

AUTHOR INTERVIEW: “5 Questions with TC Matson”

Q1. How did you get started writing? And what is your favorite part of the writing process?

A. I don’t have an awesome reason for starting honestly. One day I woke up and characters were in my head with a whole story behind them. I called my best friend and she said “Write it! What do you have to lose?” So that night I sat in front of my computer with the cursor blinking and just started. Several weeks later, Mistaken Identity was finished.
Outlining is my favorite part. I get to watch my “movie” play out and I draw bubbles and lines. I birth my characters without the pain, and research places without leaving the comfort of my home. This is where brainstorming is at its best for me.

Q2. What do you feel is the biggest challenge when writing?

A. Expressing what the characters are feeling—showing and not telling—and trying to explain their expressions without being repetitive.

Q3. What other writers or works have inspired you?

A. RK Lilley by far is my favorite author. Next in line will be Emma Chase. I also have many indie author friends that inspire and support me.

Q4. What was your inspiration for Mistaken Identity and the characters?

A. Driving down the road one day, I thought about how astounding it would be to have your own real life fairy tale. To be noticed by someone who is completely out of your league. I’m not talking about just in looks either. I’m talking the whole package—looks, job, money, lifestyle, personality. They would have a lot in common, but together they don’t look like a good fit. For example: I’m an average woman with average looks. Imagine David Beckham walking past me and immediately stopping to sweep me off my feet. {fans self}  I had no inspiration, no models or actors/actresses for the characters. I wrote them how I saw them.

Q5. What projects do you have on the horizon? Have you started your next story?

AEeek! Okay, so I’m writing two stories simultaneously as we speak—the sequel to Mistaken Identity (which is untitled at the moment) and the first book to another completely different series. I also have outlined a different book but I don’t plan on starting that one until the end of next year.

New independent author, TC Matson, loves to let her characters voices be heard. With a head full of stories, she puts her keyboard through a beating daily. Regularly she visits the solidity of her writing cave, whether it be on the couch, at her desk, or wherever the three year old can’t reach the laptop. Currently she is publishing her debut novel, Mistaken Identity that’s set to storm the web in the fall of 2014.

She is an avid reader and is known to devour books within hours. As a romance junkie, Matson sets her sights to try to find stories that are relatable and real. She’s not a fan of vampires, fairies, or any other out of this world fiction stories. And understanding that love isn’t always instant and full of flowers…her writing mirrors it.

Matson resides in the peaceful piedmont area of North Carolina with her husband and three boys where she stays hopped up on caffeine and chasing children. She has a relatively normal life managing her home, or as she calls it, her looney bin. Chaos is indefinite and a sense of humor is absolutely a must.
