Interview with Author Colin Guest

1) Tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you get into writing?

While on a palace contract in Brunei for the Sultan, I started an online writing course. At first, all went well with both my tutor and I pleased with how things were going. However, when my tutor was changed, nothing was the same. In one lesson, I had to write the basis of some true-life stories. This I did, but my tutor did not believe they were true. As a result, I stopped the course.

2) What inspired you to write your book?

After I retired from working for fourteen years on mainly high-class projects spread over three continents, I wrote Follow in the Tigerman’s Footsteps, a memoir of this time. It shows that there is more to life than a boring 9-5 job.

3) What theme or message do you hope readers will take away from your book?

By thinking positive when things get tough, it is possible to get back in the driving seat of life.

4) What drew you into this particular genre?

I write in several genres, both fiction and non-fiction. As well as memoirs, I write thrillers and romance stories.


5) If you could sit down with any character in your book, what would you ask them and why?

I would ask Jeff Stone, the main character in two of my thrillers, For the Greater Good and Desperation Rules the Day, how he manages to survive in dangerous situations. It would help give me a better understanding about the characters I write about.

6) What social media site has been the most helpful in developing your readership?

I guess that would be Facebook. I use this for posting about my writing and replying to others in the various groups I belong to.

7) What advice would you give to aspiring or just starting authors out there?

Never give up. If you find yourself stuck while writing a story, take a break. Go out and take a walk if you are able, or pick up a book and read. Later, when you feel more relaxed, return to your writing.

8) What does the future hold in store for you? Any new books/projects on the horizon?

I am presently completing It Happened in Barcelona, another romantic novel, as well as working on Accidental Death, a short thriller. I am also part way writing a film script based on A Dangerous Love Affair, another of my published romantic novels.

An Unforgettable Cruise by Colin Guest Review 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.

A woman who has lost her husband goes on a journey of self-discovery to find love and passion in life again in author Colin Guest’s “An Unforgettable Cruise”. 


The Synopsis

They say things happen in threes. In Ashley’s case, the main characters, the first to happen was her husband’s death. It released her from what had turned out to be a loveless marriage. The second, while on holiday in Turkey with her daughter Jade, they rescue a man from drowning. When he turns out to be an old flame, Ashley thinks it’s a sign they should get back together. However, she is left shocked and disappointed when informed he is under police investigation. The third occurs when Ashley goes on a luxury cruise. Here she meets Stephen, who not only rekindles her love of sex, but gives her love and makes her content with her life.

The Review

This was such a captivating and heated erotic romance novel. The author takes great strides to utilize imagery and atmosphere in his writing to capture the emotional aspects of the protagonist’s journey. The balance the author found in the more erotic and passionate scenes with the character growth and development was great to read as well, as it made for a more well-rounded narrative overall.

The fast pace of each chapter and the development of each character’s backstory were really strong in this novel. The focus on the evolution of Ashley and Stephen’s relationship, from their shared histories with their late spouses to the struggles to find their voice within a new relationship and the desire to keep the heat and fierceness of their liaisons fresh as time goes on was something so many people will be able to relate to, while the more sexy scenes will be something readers will love to make their new guilty pleasure. 

The Verdict

Hot, romantic, and entertaining, author Colin Guest’s “An Unforgettable Cruise” is a must-read erotic romance novel. The descriptive scenes, rich development of character backgrounds, and passionate romance keep readers invested, this is one novel that erotic romance fans will not want to put down this year.
